From Trash To Treasure

My oldest son has a knack of finding curbside treasures, things that people throw away. This wheelbarrow is one of those treasures, my son had found.  The tire was flat (he had already found a new one) the handles were cracked and it was pretty rusted. He had asked if he could keep it at our house till he could get it home. Weeks later it was still at our house so husband decided to fix it up for him for Father's Day, with the help of my son's children.

 Kids enjoyed sanding and taking it apart...the two little ones wanted to make sure they had their own wrenches and screwdrivers even though they had not a clue what to do with them. The only thing we had to purchase were the handles and some spray paint

These golf clubs were a Father's Day gift from son and DIL...another trash to treasure. Son provided the elbow grease needed to clean and wax.....Love how they both think the same way.

Husband, son and grandson

I LOVE this story! Such acts of love! How wonderful to say "like Father, like son." They are teaching your grandson well. Thanks for sharing this!

That is just plain sweet ... there's something extra special about gifts that come from the hands and the heart.
