I had one fan and I lost it. So I went out and bought a bag of 6 plain paper fans that will one day need to be redone because they are boring and the paper warped anyway. I also bought this fan with a kind of Spanish (if Spain were tacky) feel to it.
Then last week at Craigdarroch Castle I bought this little fan.
Neither fan is particularly accurate in material or even pattern for the 1850s. That will have to come at another time. I think the blue suits my coloring better. But, I think the red and yellow one will suit the dress better. I guess we better wait and see when it is done. And then decide which one I will use for Queen Victoria’s Birthday tea.
