Color Carnival, Ruby Tuesday, Mellow Yellow, Blue Monday / Brooms Brooms Brooms

We went to an Irish Festival here in the Los Angeles area today.
These colorful brooms caught my attention and I put my camera to work!

I did not realize they made so many brooms in color. I need a new one. I will look for a blue one.

Leave it to an artisan to add color to something rather mundane. Really nice photos--thanks for the tour. Happy week!

When my daughter was little, she always wanted to sweep at home at the homes of family and friends. Maybe if she had one of these colorful brooms now, she might bring some of that sweeping fad back. LOL! Beautiful photos! I'm your new follower since I found you at Blue Monday.

I am surprised to see the Irish brooms, because their shapes and material look exactly the same as ours which we used long ago. The difference between ours and the Irish brooms is color. Ours were not as colorful as the Irishe ones.
