vintage fans

Last week I divulged my growing crush on vintage alarm clocks … this week I’ll let you in on another: I’ve had a serious thing for vintage fans for as long as I can remember. I think it started with trips to my grandmother’s house before I even understood the concept of “vintage.” I would fall asleep to the peaceful hum and whir of an old metal fan and perhaps I’ve equated that sound with all of the love and happiness that existed under that house. Whatever the reason, I adore the graceful curves of the metal and the oftentimes pastel shades of the base and blades. My mother keeps an antique fan in her kitchen during for those hot Southern months and I have one in my office just to appreciate its beauty.

They emit such a friendly vibe and can easily stand alone as a piece of artwork, making them the perfect wedding accessory in my mind. I think they’d be beyond lovely placed around a long dining table for an outdoor summer wedding … a great vintage touch and a stylish way to cool off guests. ;o)

    Love the idea of including at the tables during a warm summer wedding. I think vintage items always add a note of nostaligia.
