Auction Purchase and Giveaway Reminder

Wednesday evening there is a local auction. I rarely get to go because we have church every Wednesday evening. This week, however, our church was doing something different on Wednesday evening so DH and I grabbed the chance to check out the auction. This little fan was just begging to go home with me... how could I turn down something so cute?
It's a nice small size that can fit in anywhere. I think I'll put it in the master bedroom (it works!). There is a streak on the cast iron base that I thought would scrub right off. But it didn't. I wonder if it's some kind of varnish... and using a stiffer remover would also remove the paint. So, I'm leaving it there as a testimony to her hard life.

And, just to remind you, I'm giving away a $25 Lowe's gift card here. All you need to do to enter is be a public follower of this blog on Google Friend Connect. Then leave a comment telling me you're a follower. If you're already a follower, you just need to leave a comment to be entered. Giveaway ends in ONE WEEK on Saturday, April 30.


  1. I think the little fan is just darling and whatever your streak is... it just adds character to the piece. I love getting wonderful finds when you don't expect them.

  2. I am dreaming of the day when I find an old fan. I don't even care if it works...!! you did good!


Thanks for taking the time to make my day with your comments!
