Cleaning out the far reaches of the barn- 
we came across this long forgotten 
little box fan. 

I don't know where it might of come from or even  how old it is.  

I know I've had it a good 10 or 12 years 
the boys used it in their room for a bit after we got it 
...and  then it was sent to the barn.


Well, I rescued it this weekend. 
I am going to clean it up and make sure it still works
-- it is so dirty! 
(like I said "it's been in the barn") 

This little fan isn't very big. 
It is almost square in it's dimensions. 
About 18 - 20 inches square. 
It would take up little space - if I find just the right spot for it. 

It has some character to it. I hope it still works- 
it is a novelty on its own; but what a FUNCTIONAL 
( I like functional) 

COME SUMMER TIME 'Round these parts -- it would do us good to have 


In other news- 
I've been working on 
some Crocheted Squares... 

This is just a sample. 
This is actually a dish cloth pattern I'm using for something else. 
I am hoping it turns out nice. 
I hope to have this project finished by the time the weekend is out. 
I can show you the finished project. 

God Bless You- 
thanks for reading.

What a neat old fan. I love rescuing things and seeing what can be done with them.

Looks like you've been working hard on your crocheting.

Have a blessed day.

Can't wait to see what the crochet project turns out to be. And that fan!! Hope it works as well as it looks like it should.

I bet the fan is pretty once it is cleaned up. I like your crocheted squares! Pretty colors.

Love that old fan! Can't wait to see what your squares are going to be.
How clever for you to have a dual purpose for your match holder!
