Besom (BEE ZUM)

This is a broom from twigs tied around a stick and whatnot that women and men made to sweep the house with.
My mom made these with small shrubs she would grow every summer right up untill about 1980! The people in the American neighborhood we moved into were always laghing at us for one quaint thing or another.

I hope this inspires us all to sweep our house today and wipe something down.

Besoms are witches favorite form of transportation. This type of broom may sound like a relic from bygone days but for me, it is still a lovely idea.
