Rusty Urn and a collection of tag sale Whisk Brooms becomes a nice arrangement that needs no watering…ever.

Someone used whisk brooms like yours and hung them side by side as a window valance in a kitchen window. It sounds odd, but they looked pretty cool. Keep your great designs coming!!

I have such an affinity to things that were valued, served well, and were too much a part of someone’s being to discard. Many times I have become the caretaker of the past for someone who finally had to let it go. When your whisk booms need a final resting place--I'm there for you. Nicely done!

writes: Jim,
I love old brooms and the stories they could tell... This is just wonderful and would work well with paintbrushes too.

Great job!
