Im a fan.

Happy new year my lovelies.
Yay my first post of 2011... a photo of an ugly fan... hmmm not so lovely but after doing a quick blog hop of my faves this morning I saw Alicia's post on her new fan and GASP... it is EXACTLY the same as this one I picked up yesterday for $5 at my local salvage yard so I took that as a sign and just had to show you now instead of waiting until I had restored it.

This is after id cleaned it too! it was FILTHY, literally caked in dirt 3mm thick.
 Its not such a good photo as you cant see the perfectly retro blue base but trust me.
She is gorgeous.
She was going to sit up high on my fridge out of harms way (to little fingers) but now that I know she can go on the wall I'll be doing that.
I have so much to bore you with  tell you all,
like why I was at the salvage yard at all??? and why my back room appears to have been invaded by tables...

We have had a busy wonderful holiday season, the other half is back at work now allowing me to reinstate something similar to normal routine.
I feel recharged and healthy and im looking forward to spending this year with you all.

And as I feel a first post it is somewhat symbolic of how one intends to continue, here's some random photo's of loveliness as I do wish to see more loveliness this year.

And to see what my fan SHOULD/WILL look like visit Alicia at time worn style.



  1. Hi Megan. I've also mentioned fans in my first post. Mind you mine are not groovy like this one. It's so cool! Look forward to seeing your projects and house developments this year.
