OK -- I posted the clotheslines yesterday, and this broom today, but I promise that I'm not using re-nest to share all my vacation photos!
Anyway. This broom caught my attention as I was walking along the street in Rome. It looks to be made out of twigs rather than synthetic material.
And this wasn't a broom being used by an old Italian grandmother sweeping her front stoop ... this broom was being used by a municipal worker who was cleaning up around a bus stop.
It struck us as simple, beautiful, functional, and slightly green.
