Yes, I know this is JUST a fan...but you see, my little office has NO windows. It does have a nice skylight way up high..and so I have lots of light. However, it gets very hot due to the fact that my office is just off the kitchen and the oven and stove are two steps away. GREAT for cooking and blogging ~grin~ but hotter than blazes at times. So..I wanted a little fan on my desk. I wanted (naturally) a cute one. So this is what I finally bought.
The person I bought this from is Relic-and-roses. She is a seller on ebay and during the summer she sometimes offers these. I feel lucky to have gotten one from her finally!

As you can plainly see, it matches everything else on my desk. Yes, I DO love roses and my ebay friend does the loveliest roses so when she FINALLY painted this sweet little fan, I grabbed it.
Well, not exactly! I BID on it and won! "Grabbed!" sounds greedy and I would never do that! (You believe me...right?)

I am giving you different views of it. Not sure why. Perhaps because I just like taking pictures of it? Good grief! I wonder if I am ok?! Probably not. Oh well...

Uh huh...uh huh...

And the sweet little stand. My desk is HUGE so I always have plenty of room. Almost. I love containers..and anything with sweet roses on it.

Office, bedroom, bathroom and living room..lovely roses..of deep rose pinks and all my deep rose reds goes right along with it. I have NO style that I like I MUST have cozy! But I cannot do without my roosters and I combine them..and it works for me. And this is some of my roses...on my sweet li'l fan.

Have another wonderful, delightful and most of all, peace filled day!


  1. What an amazing fan, I´ve never seen one like that!

  2. Okay... Now that is just tooooo cute! I hate pulling out the fans because they always just tacky up the place.. but not that lil beauty.. I'd have to keep it out year round!
    Have a Great Weekend!

  3. I've been holding out for a vintage fan for my office... right now I have a plain white plastic two-speed dealy bob of a fan.. NOT CUTE AT ALL!

  9. That is the cutest fan I've ever seen. Now if I had one like that I would put it in a really prominent place and just enjoy it. I love the roses painted on it. Such a lovely piece. Hugs, Marty

  10. Roses on a fan...I do believe you can paint roses on anything. It is really special. I just bought a tray at a sale. I have been wanting one to save me steps in the kitchen...I decided to paint it... after seeing this. It will probably have daisies on it. Daisies and apples??

  17. That fan is perfect. I love roses too, and those pink stripes are just the right touch. I have tried to paint roses, but they never turn out quite right. Your office looks great!
