I don’t know which fan to use…

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.

Spanish Senorita....with a lazy eye.

Then last week at Craigdarroch Castle I bought this little fan.

More of a Japanese look.

 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.
