I Love My Amish Brooms!

I became fed up with the WalMart quality brooms we've been using (and breaking) since we've been married, and ordered 3 brooms from One is a milkhouse/outdoor broom, one is a house broom, and the other is a child-sized broom.

They arrived a few weeks ago, and I was amazed that I've been putting up with such cheap things up till this point! The child-sized broom even has a rose sticker on it, and the handles are hand-painted. The wood of the sticks will easilyl outlast the broom straw.

They are such an example of something useful being made beautiful. Now my next step is making them some "aprons", as featured in MaryJane's Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook.

  3. Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
