    Not the emotional feeling or mood, but color. Blue is associated with calmness, serenity, truth, wisdom, heaven, eternity, devotion, tranquility, loyalty and openness, just to name a few. But this is about brushes. So, enough psycho babble and let me show you one of my favorite colors. . .in three varieties.


    First up. . .Ever-Ready 59. . . .

    Thanks, gents.

    Vintage brushes (the handles) are interesting to restore, as there are so many different shape and color variations. . .when compared to new handles. Just think, they were mass produced like this. lol And it's a tad satisfying to bring something back from doom and gloom. Yeah, that's it. . . .saving the world via recycling. :p
