The Perfect Broom for Hanging Over the Door

I have recently gotten this question a bunch of times on my ETSY store, "What is the best size broom for hanging over the door?".  I know to some that may seem like a strange question, but it is said that hanging a broom over the door will help to keep evil and bad energy from entering your home.  Well, if your door is at the end of a narrow hallway like mine, then the answer to that question would be the Small Witch's Broom.  This broom is also perfect for use as a small altar broom.  At about 40-42 inches tall it fits perfectly over just about any door.  I have taken a few photos to show you what it looks like.

The door at the top right is larger than the other entry door and I could probably fit a regular size Witch's Broom over that door, or even a Kitchen Style Broom.  For these photo's I simply used a tack and some ribbon, but I have actually designed a set of hand forged iron hooks, made by my friend Ozz at Kalapooia Forge, that will hang a broom sideways.  Both are available on in my ETSY store.

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holiday's to cook for.  Last year I did it up good with some old family recipe's, a few that i made up myself and some from cookbooks.  This year I want to see what YOUR FAVORITE THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY RECIPES are! So I'm offering up a chance to win one of our very festive Turkey Wing Brooms on my Broomchick Facebook Page

I want to know how you celebrate Thanksgiving?  Do you do the traditional Turkey and Stufffing and harvest veggies or do you do something different. 

In my house we do a more traditional Thanksgiving spread with a family twist!  My mother makes the most AMAZING candied ham that we have it for Thanksgiving along with the turkey and then again on Christmas!   Here are some pics of my last year's feast prepared by me for friends with just a little help from Amber on the pies. 

 
 
 
 
And of course we must not forget mommy's little helper!  lol!  Brutus got dusted when we were flinging pies around.  He's so cute!

Oregon Country Fair Sweep

The broom shop was hoppin' at the Oregon Country Fair this year!!!  So much fun!!  It's always a blast to catch up with friends and family and see what's new.   Our new booth space is amazing and this was our 3rd year there, i think people are starting to get used to it. 


In this photo there are 3 generations of Scheumack Broom makers! 
Thurman, Eric and little Jude!  I've been working with this family for almost 15 years!

Kitchen Brooms... behaving themselves nicely.  :)


Someone brought us this broom to re-plat (the basket weave on the top part of the broom) at the fair after 15 years of use..... still has plenty of miles on it!!
