i've decided to bring the romance of fans back! soon it will be summer and even though san francisco is never really hot, i imagine pulling out my lovely lacy fan and giving my lover a message he'll never forget.
THE FAN PLACED NEAR THE HEART:
"You have won my love."
A CLOSED FAN TOUCHING THE RIGHT EYE:
"When may I be allowed to see you?"
THE NUMBER OF STICKS SHOWN ANSWERED THE QUESTION:
"At what hour?"
THREATENING MOVEMENTS WITH A FAN CLOSED:
"Do not be so imprudent"
HALF-OPENED FAN PRESSED TO THE LIPS:
"You may kiss me."
HANDS CLASPED TOGETHER HOLDING AN OPEN FAN:
COVERING THE LEFT EAR WITH AN OPEN FAN:
"Do not betray our secret."
HIDING THE EYES BEHIND AN OPEN FAN:
"I love you."
SHUTTING A FULLY OPENED FAN SLOWLY:
"I promise to marry you."
DRAWING THE FAN ACROSS THE EYES:
"I am sorry."
TOUCHING THE FINGER TO THE TIP OF THE FAN:
"I wish to speak with you."
LETTING THE FAN REST ON THE RIGHT CHEEK:
LETTING THE FAN REST ON THE LEFT CHEEK:
OPENING AND CLOSING THE FAN SEVERAL TIMES:
"You are cruel"
DROPPING THE FAN:
"We will be friends."
"I am married."
"I am engaged."
PUTTING THE FAN HANDLE TO THE LIPS:
OPENING A FAN WIDE:
"Wait for me."
PLACING THE FAN BEHIND THE HEAD:
"Do not forget me"
PLACING THE FAN BEHIND THE HEAD WITH FINGER EXTENDED:
FAN IN RIGHT HAND IN FRONT OF FACE:
FAN IN LEFT HAND IN FRONT OF FACE:
"I am desirous of your acquaintance."
FAN HELD OVER LEFT EAR:
"I wish to get rid of you."
DRAWING THE FAN ACROSS THE FOREHEAD:
"You have changed."
TWIRLING THE FAN IN THE LEFT HAND:
"We are being watched."
TWIRLING THE FAN IN THE RIGHT HAND:
"I love another."
CARRYING THE OPEN FAN IN THE RIGHT HAND:
"You are too willing."
CARRYING THE OPEN FAN IN THE LEFT HAND:
"Come and talk to me."
DRAWING THE FAN THROUGH THE HAND:
"I hate you!"
DRAWING THE FAN ACROSS THE CHEEK:
"I love you!"
PRESENTING THE FAN SHUT:
"Do you love me?"
