I have a few fans of my own. None were expensive, but they are still fun to have.
One of my students recently gave me this fan. I think it's lovely.
Fans make beautiful decorations. This is one of my favorites.
This pair of fan-shaped earrings are another favorite.
My most treasured fan is a brooch that belonged to one of my mother's relatives.
Giraffe #77 has heard about the fan action and he is ready.
