These shelves were here when I moved in to this house 25 years ago. My Mother in Law, who lived here before, put the shelves in with her husband. When I first decorated them, she told me that she always kept the encyclopedias there as if she expected me to do the same. Well, I did for a few years. But, who needs those anymore anyway?
Since then I have enjoyed decorating these shelves over and over. I've always loved Asian decoration and I have bits and pieces all over my house. Some of them came from our trip to Hong Kong a long time ago and are very special to me.
I decided to bring all those little things together in one place. I thought having fans would be fun, but I just couldn't find any that I liked. So, I bought some colored paper at Michael's, folded them and made my own. I just love my fans.
