Day 25 Veiled

Day 25 Veiled

I've said this on here before
but here goes again.

You can learn anything on Youtube.

My daughter is getting married this Saturday.
It's a second marriage for each of them,
so it's going to be a very small affair,
but she wanted to have a fascinator veil.

That's where Youtube came in.
I'm a former florist and I had an idea of how you could make those cute little hats,
but some of the details I gleaned from watching several videos were priceless.

I made the fascinator and then I made a ring bearer pillow for my grandson to use.

Once I finished the hat, I needed a place to store it until the wedding.

I popped it on top of this teddy bear.

Isn't she cute with her flower, feathers and veil?

I made the pillow and then embellished it with ribbon roses I made. 
Aidan, my daughter's son is five,
and he's going to look so cute.

Then because I'm in the last days of the 30 paintings in 30 days,
that's right,
I had to paint it.

How fun is this.

10" x 8" unframed acrylic on a panel.



  1. Fabulous, fascinating post, veil and painting! LOVE this, Sharon, it's so perfect, can't even find the words to tell you...congratulations to you and your family, and have a great time at the wedding!

  2. Thanks Meredith. It is snowing to beat the band here this morning and the blowing snow is even worse. We'll see how this day unfolds. But it has been fun making and doing for the big day. I'll be doing her bouquet in a few hours.

  3. What a lovely little veil! I'm so sorry your family is dealing with the challenges of this weather, but blessings to you all on this joyful day!

  4. Thanks Terri. Everything is ready now and I'm getting ready to watch the game. All the flowers are ready, but I wish the wind would calm down at least a little. Thanks for your great wishes.

  5. The veil and ribbon roses are fabulous. Your daughter will love them. Congratulations.
