A fan of photos

This was  was free!!!!

I am Thankful

My Momma

Tie clips, old cards, watch, fall leaf...scrabble tiles...anything goes

Love the rust!

I really was a Happy first grader

This fan was rescued from a burn pile by Josh... He painted it red. My favorite color. It has lain around since summer, but as I was working on things for Thanksgiving (code for cleaning out my junk) I decided to dress it up for the holidays. I always knew I wanted pictures on it, finally got around to it. I wasn't sure what to use for picture clips, but then I remembered my stash of old tie clips...don't you just love junk stashes!!! One of the reasons junk is so fun to play with, is the versatility of it. This would be great for any holiday, reunion or birthday...Maybe the next time the fan is a centerpiece it will highlight you on your special day. It will be fun having all the Cheeks over tomorrow... Lez
