Eloise is so sweet -- I remember doing that too (and that's a looooong time ago)! Love the Jane Austen quote.
Loving the fan picture. She's adorable. My overheads are a lifesaver in the heat.
Brings back memories of when I was a child. We didn't have a color television until many years later. Air conditioning was unheard of too.Wonderful post!
oh, that is too cute! :)
she is adorable, such a lovely photo!
I use to do that in front of my grandmother's fan and her floor furnace too. But I wasn't wearing a skirt. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
She's so cute!
O how adorable! Love the smile on her face!
a great shot for both memes. I have the fan on today and still likes the way it moves the clothing.
I love this shot of Eloise and what a great Jane Austen quote.
Funny shot! Fans and such are a big part of childhood. :)
What a lovely little girl. She is enjoying herself, gorgeous.
That is a great pic - so expressive.
:)Beautiful shot! All the best!
Very adorable! Love the tile floor in black and white. Nice selection!
How sweet !
So cute :)
What a sweet girl, wonderful b&w
The Jane Austen quote is perfect - such a ladylike way of complaining! Eloise has certainly found the best place to be in hot weather. Lovely photo.
That's a cute shot, I hope it's helping her (and everyone else) cool.
Oh, how adorable!! And what fun memories your photo brought!! I love it! Definitely a great way to stay cool and I hope you both do and have a great weekend as well!
Fans are absolutely the best friends a person can have in the summer. In fact, I'm in front of one right now!Shadows Lit with Gold
This is a wonderful view - it goes back a long way to the times when home A/C was unheard of and keeping cool was a quest (probably in VA more so than in New England). A fan is a portable cooling solution that Eloise has found, She is a beauty and I like both the photo and kitchen tile being black and white - it adds a retro look to a child searching for cool - and that was true in any era! Nice!
Excellent portrait, very good. A sweet face. Greetings.
This is such a sweet picture!
It is continuing to turn out to be quite a dangerous ride! Do like your photo - makes me think of the Monroe photo!!!!
Oh, so cute. Great B&W shot!
Eloise is very photogenic - great picture. I can remember doing this at a young age too - then Mum would take us all to the lake for an early evening dip, put on our PJ's, and we went right to bed when we got home - all cooled off n tired :)
lovely black and white shot - great shadow outline....
this photo is a treasure :)
She is beautiful Genie!Diamond shape shadows.Have a blessed Sunday.Rose
Lorelei had a little handheld fan that she uses on herself...I guess all kids love them. I know I did...and I love that picture of Eloise.
...and I still like to be in front of the fan on a hot sultry afternoon. Tho, fashions have changed a lot in the last 50 years or so, no more dresses....but oh how your shadow and thoughts of childhood captures that special something in me. Great photo and memory.
A fabulous photo, and she enjoyed the wind..
what an adorable little shadow! i remember that i loved to talk into the fan and listen to how funny it would make my voice sound!
Wow, I should dig out a very similar photo taken of me at the same approximate age. It looks so similar, except there is not microwave in the background!! I was born WAY before they came along.
Lovely memories. This photo reminds me that I should turn on the fan in my office then I wouldn't feel quite so warm. :))
What a cute photo, do hope you are having a fabulous summer.
Like many other comments, this brings back childhood memories of standing in front of fans and water cooling units, long before central air.
