Hedgehog brush by Redecker. Photo by Renilde de Peuter.

Yep. A moment of pure indulgence here.

Several weeks ago, I admired Renilde’s portrait of her new hedgehog brush by the renown German brush makers at Redecker. I love the way Renilde plays with both sides of his character – the brush and the Hedge – by surrounding him with flowery debris. Is he going to root around in it or sweep it up? Hmmmmm.

I quickly knew that I wanted to feature this excellent image. But I couldn’t decide. Was he the lead for a piece about hedgehogs or brushes? What to do?

Well sometimes indecision is also the mother of invention (I guess). I decided to follow Renilde’s lead by honoring both Hedge’s form and function.

So here you go. At the very least I hope my motley mix of wiry, spiky things puts a smile on your face this Friday.
