The legend of the lily of the valley is that it sprang from Eve's tears when she was kicked out of the Garden of Eden. It is also believed that this flower protects gardens from evil spirits, signals the return of happiness, purity of heart, sweetness, happiness, love's good fortune. Wow, that's a lot of responsibility for one little flower. But we love the message and know that Veigh, our whimsical yet beautiful vintage lily of the valley hat is all that and more. She's so unusual we couldn't help but want to restore her. Strands of the delicate white flowers of varying lengths rain down from an olive green velvet ribbon "spout". Her palette steeped in the colors of nature, Veigh features a matching green French Net birdcage veil and an olive green velvet wire base underneath. We've shown the veil loose for illustration but she would be lovely bunched "just so" with some bobby pins. One-of-a-kind Veigh would be equally at home in a garden wedding, a tea party, springtime cocktail fete or anywhere a celebration and a smile take place.
