I know, I know! It has been an age since I wrote on this blog. Well, I did have the best excuse in the world! My little girl got married at the end of August and it got a little frantic towards the end trying to bring together all those last minute details but eventually we did! Even though she was really unwell due to the stress of the wedding planning and the enormous stress at work we got through it and had the most wonderful day!
So, after all this time I decided to start selling some of my mother’s vintage items which often border on the antique. First off is this delightful Japanese paper and bamboo fan. Ideal for those days when you just want to move some cooler air around you but still stay ladylike!
Here you see the fan displayed open. The front shows a pretty bird looking over its shoulder at the flowers whilst the reverse is plain.
In fact when I pulled open the fan initially I did see some Japanese writing.
I promise not to leave it quite so long until I post again!
