I have a thing for brooms. It's a witch thing. This lamp sits on my desk in the kitchen. Click for a better look.
Two 14K broom pins.
Sometimes I pin one of these on an evening bag.
This is one of my treasures. It is a carved bone needle holder from the 1800's.
The end screws off...
and the needles slide down into the shaft. This type of a carved bone item was usually done by a sailor while he was at sea and given on his return home to his loved one.
I keep it in my sewing box with my sterling cauldron pin cushion!
My small kitchen broom. The shaft is made of oriental bittersweet.
And my very large broom which I keep by the front door. This broom is over 6 feet tall. I keep it there in case I have to make a quick getaway.
It has a twisted handle which keeps you from slipping off when you are in high gear.
BTW....for all you slackers out there who have not finished your Christmas shopping, this is a little reminder. Christmas is four months from yesterday. Time is running out!!!
