All things French and Fascinators

See blogs and businesses for USA

I'd just purchased this pretty blue enamel pitcher from a flea market in Clermont-Ferrand and thought I'd give the April flowers an imaginary drink!

On the agenda today is continued work on headpieces for my best friend who sings with her jazz band throughout the San Francisco Bay area. I'm working on hats, veils, combs and fascinators. In progess now is a pretty fascinator of turquoise silk with a violet chatoyancy, that I formed in two petals, and attached vintage French lace, peacock feathers (tendrils) and slim Italian ribbon. Here's a sneak peek...

Thank you, Diana! Glad you found the comment link. It is rather small, isn't it? I wish I could make the font larger, but it's part of the template and I don't know that I can. I'll check it out. Thanks again for bringing it to my attention.
