In the metal container are the brushes that I use everyday. They are thrashed and I get frustrated trying to get a nice point. In the Borders cup I have a set of really expensive nice brushes that I can't make myself use. Why is that and what am I saving them for? I use my best dishes, I wear my best clothes...I even wear heels and jewelry to clean house (which I supposed to be doing right now and look pretty snazzy) but...I can't seem to feel worthy of good brushes. What is that all about?
