Cuter Fans

It's been so so hot here. And it turns out that the attic fan is broken, which we only realized when it didn't kick in, not even when the temperature soared to 98 degrees. If you live in an old home with retrofitted AC like ours you know the upstairs bedrooms really need that attic fan to stay cool. And if you don't have a functioning attic fan you better get some small fans in the rooms to help circulate the air.

So I got fans for the girls' rooms, but I decided they needed to be made cute. Those foam stickers I invested in a while ago came to the rescue. Even though Sabrina suggested she'd like to decorate her fan a bit more, like all around the outside, we agreed to leave it at one touch of color.

I know, you're probably thinking, no updates in eight days and now this? I've got other posts in the works, but for today, it's the little things. Did I mention the fans now match the rooms' colors?

you *did* make them cute!

the best-looking fan i have is a vintage one with zero safety features and a raggedy cord. but it not only looks good, it really produces a strong breeze. ;^)
