Have You Donned Your Easter Bonnet?

“In your Easter Bonnet,
With all the frills upon it
You’ll be the grandest lady
in the Easter Parade”
(Irving Berlin)

A new bonnet for Easter was considered a luxury item and for many, an important item. If their finances would not stretch to a new bonnet then they would alter an existing bonnet with ribbon and flowers, possibly a new length of ribbon would be purchased for the occasion. With this in mind I made this mini concertina tag book for Tag Tuesday’s  “Happy Easter” theme
All images are from Divas D’Este’s Victorian Easter Parade collage sheet. I also computer generated the song lyrics.
Bo Bunny paper  was used for it’s bold floral design, adding lace, feathers, flowers and a very unusual silver leaf embellishment which you will see in the first photograph, this was a gift from Cynnie. Ric Rac was added to tie the book closed.

Whether you have donned your Easter bonnet or prefer a more relaxed look to your appearance, have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend. Lynne x

    Lovely work again – love the romantic style and soft colours! I DID wear a bonnet today, as we were in the garden, and I needed to shade myself from the sun, but it was not as pretty as your ones here! Hugs, Valerie
