R is for Restoration
Many years ago Jon and I were at an auction when this old lawnmower came under the hammer, I got it for £2. It has been a garden ornament for 20 years but Jon restored it for me....he made a new roller and a new handle, stripped all the metal parts and sharpened the blades. It cuts perfectly!
The lawn is Jon's domain and loves nothing more than to sit on his lawnmower and spend a couple of hours getting the perfect cut - but for small area, or round trees this is perfect. It is a Ransom Henley model.
I am really pleased with the washstand - it has been just an ornamental piece for years, but it too has done well for being restored.
Restoring is certainly the way to go right now - is it the same in other parts of the world?
