2 thoughts on “You always Hear about the Witch’s Broom…

  1. I took a look at this Sexy Witch blog post the other day, but didn’t give it much thought until you mentioned the dust pan.

    According to the Wikipedia entry, the dustpan as we know it was invented by an American in 1858. Brooms, of course, go back for millenia, So what this tintype displays is the juxtaposition of the figure of the “ancient” witch with new and up-to-date technology–even if that technology is the dustpan.

    As a magical tool, we usually associate the broom with Air. I guess as a tool, we could associate the dustpan with Earth.
