Someone once said “Many people are like wheelbarrows – only useful when pushed and often easily upset.” I would have to agree and since I have been putting off getting that new wheelbarrow for some time now, I have decided to push myself to shop for a new one.
Such a useful tool, the wheelbarrow. But why can’t they be a bit more stylish? When you pop into a garden supply shop, your choice runs the gamut from A to B (to paraphrase Dorothy Parker). Anyway, since spring is about to spring, it’s time to look for a new one, preferably one that’s rustic chic. I did some looking on-line, but the really interesting ones below are all from Europe. Why is that?
And speaking of rustic chic wheelbarrows, what about that cut-lace beauty at the top of the post? Sculptural and rustic chic? Definitely. Practical? Uh-uh. Seeing as how it’s more sieve than wheelbarrow, the quest continues.
