With a small collection of non-working fans, there was no need to have them in a place with electricity, so my backyard deck was a perfect fit. 
This little fan is quite the Busy Little Bee.  Love its small size!
And Little Busy Bee has a big brother, too! 
Out of my many fans (thank you very much), this one is my favorite.  I guess you can say I have at least three fans...pun intended!
With none of these fans working, there was no need for the cords so I simply cut them off.   But they work perfectly when the wind picks up!  Love that!
To help display them, I found this cool old scale.
This deck has the perfect air conditioning!  Aaaaah....love that breeze.
Doing some more outdoor deck-orating, this tray fit the bill.  I had been carrying it around from sale to sale with no takers.  Guess it was meant to stay with me and be used on my deck!  All it needed was some rocks and this oil lamp from CB2.  It has a great contemporary look!
I love summer.....sigh.
Its a perfect place to spend the morning with a good book and a nice cup of coffee.

I have a small fan collection and with summer finally being here (yes!!) it was a call to have all fans on deck....my backyard deck that is!

The view's not too shabby, either! Posted: 8:17 am on June 8th
