Toolsday Giveaway: Win Fiskar Pruners

Last Toolsday we posted a photo of what looked like a wire basket, but it wasn’t a wire basket, it was something else.  Some people thought it was a type of animal cage, others thought it was used to protect plants from birds, and someone even guessed it was Marge Simpson’s hair net.  But, a good many of you knew it was a Victorian-era hoop skirt bustle. They were commonly used in the late 1800s to provide Victorian-era big booty.

We randomly picked one winner out of all last week’s comments and that lucky person is Daruth. who also had the correct answer.  Congrats Daruth, you’ve got one week to reply to our email message before we pick another winner.

Is a lack of kitchen storage an issue for you? Check out some new storage ideas and cabinet inserts, plus some clever open-shelving ideas.  If it’s a new look you’re going for, we’ve got ideas for adding color to the kitchen, painting countertops and cabinets.       

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a set of Fiskars PowerGear Bypass garden pruners. These aren’t just any run-of-the-mill pruners, these feature patented gearing technology that increases force and makes cutting easier. In fact, it is so easy to cut with these pruners; they won an Ease-of-Use Commendation from the National Arthritis Foundation.  The razor-sharp blades are built to last and are designed to resist rust.

To win the Fiskars pruners, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what the thing pictured below is. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner.

On Tuesday, March 12, we will select the winner then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until March 12, 2013, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Fiskars pruners.  

Official Rules.
