Hand Fans

I was going to work on Hellen's story (due to my own inclinations and the general consensus) but then I went shopping with some friends today and happened to buy a hand fan.
It looks a lot like this:
So now I'm into fans. Did you know, in the Victorian times, they had a language with fans? An open fan on the right cheek meant "yes" (the left fan meant "no"). Fanning yourself slowly meant "I'm married", and so on.
And I thought, Winny is in the time period where she could use fans! And then I thought of this horribly chilling scene where she uses fan signals... so now I have to use fans!
Anyway, it's late and I have to go. Tomorrow – auditions for our homeschool play, Anne of Green Gables!!

  1. The fan looks very pretty! And good luck on the auditions! What character do you want to play?

  2. Well, I wanted Anne, of course, but also Mrs. Lynd. We got the cast lists on Friday!


Spill your thoughts. Observe common courtesy. You'll make me happy.
