Welcome everyone! Sorry I haven't been blogging much lately - I've been busy as a beaver. It's the kind of busy where, at the end of the day, you say to yourself, "It doesn't look like I've done anything today!".
One of the little things I've done this week is make some Valentine hearts using those plastic beads that you iron together. I was looking for something in my craft closet and looked at the bucket of beads and decided to play with them. The cats enjoyed playing with them, too!
This little beauty I'm excited about! It's a celluloid fan that I thrifted a few years back. I know it didn't cost more than a dollar. I've never done anything with it, but I think I'll change out the old ribbon (will keep the old one safe in a baggie, though), clean off the ink on the front, and maybe tie a small sprig of fake flowers to the bottom.
If you go to my right-hand sidebar, under LABELS, then "Holidays", you'll see my last year's Valentine posts.
Back view. It's 10" (25.5cm) at the widest, and 6-1/4" (16cm) long. I tried researching celluloid fans on Google, but couldn't find anything for this style that doesn't fold up, except for a much smaller one that was actually a postcard fan. If anyone has any info or leads, I'd love to know!
