guest post: one blue wren – fan love!
hello from the other side of the pacific! ash of one blue wren here, it’s lovely to see you.
so i can’t help but notice there’s a whole lot of talk about winter going on. snow, cuddly blankets, roaring fires, comfort food and of course, a christmas all in white! snow isn’t something i’ve had the pleasure of experiencing, and christmas down under is definitely not white. here in the tropics (brisbane australia) this time of year is when we get the hottest, face melting of days. our holiday time is spent at the beach, in the back yard pool, eating ice cream, and sitting under a fan to escape the heat.
meet my favorite vintage find, a lovely old fan that keeps us cool in summer, ever so quietly, while looking fabulous!
i love the industrial yet elegant feel of these beauties, and they really did make them to last back then. so I’ve had a dig around on etsy, and found some lovely examples. yes, there are many of you that may not be on the look out for a fan while it’s snowing outside, but they do make a beautiful decorative piece, and you’ll thank yourself when summer rolls around.
[ keep in mind that safety wasn't first priority when these were made. homes with children and pets can save little fingers and fluffy tails by using these as decorative pieces only. ]
Hope winter treats you nice!
