St. Lydwine's Princess Style Veil


$17.95 USD

Here's a sweet little princess style veil in the white rigid floral lace. Perhaps the crisp white color with Venice lace trimming is especially nice in the summer on those hot days. But really you can wear this color and style year in and year out
 Although it's pictured here on a girl with a longer head of hair, the smaller princess style veil also is very flattering for shorter hairstyles. 
This style is timeless. The shape is a reproduction from a pattern that my mother bought in Rome in the the 1950s. 

This veil has been named for St Lydwine who suffered an ice skating accident from which she never recovered. For the rest of her life, Lydwine knew extreme suffering from several illnesses. She became a mystic and a victim soul,  accepting her pain and offering up her sufferings for the sins of the world. 

Here's Our New Paisley Wrap Veil



The Elizabeth of Portugal Veil
Paisley Wrap Veil
$42.95 USD

This beautiful covering is unique. You won't see coming and going on every head. As with all our veils it's well made. It's also as soft as soft can be and it doubles as a shawl. We give it a 10 for the serviceability factor and expect our longer veil wearers will get mass amount of Mass usage from this one!
This veil is finished with black English netting trim both sides and comes to a point at the ends. It measures approximately  58" x 20".
From a recent Papal Mass....It looks like they like to veil in South Korea. Nice to see!




Crucifixion

In the fullness of time God sent His Son to die in such a way with His arms outstretched. He gives us all, what more do we want?


Fun and Dreams with Spanish Lace Veils




It had been a rainy day; drab and dull with little excitement. But then the doorbell rang and suddenly, everything changed. The deliveryman brought packages to the front door... This was the shipment they had been waiting for, and in it were several new styles of mantillas direct from Spain!

 As the sisters tried out the new styles, they began to dream of what they would wear at the various churches and cathedrals they were to visit during their next whirlwind trip to Europe!

Married women and the black veil revisited.


How did the black veil become associated with married women?

Below is a photo that I took of the widow's veil at the Louisiana State Museum on Jackson Square in New Orleans. You can see how it is meant to cover the face and undoubtably the tears of the woman who wore it.


The widows veil of mourning.

A widow in mourning was required to wear black for about one to two years after the death of her husband. So say for example the woman was widowed and she began the morning process of wearing black. If during that year another family member died, she would begin the full morning all over again from the very beginning.

I'm enjoying a short trip in New Orleans.

I am here with my husband and we're having a great time! Yesterday we went to the Cathedral of St. Louis.
