One lucky visitor will win a lovely full length black mantilla. Just like the one shown below!
Some things I love about Joy's mantillas:
#1 The length. I have longer hair and it gives me full coverage. Though, as you can see in the photo above, it looks very nice on shorter hairstyles as well.
#2 It stays put. Because of the material, the weight and crocheted design, the mantilla stays on your head without having to secure it with pins. Now, of course, if you have a very active wiggly little one in your lap you may have to secure it like you would other mantillas. But I have found that compared to other designs that this crocheted mantilla will not slip or slide around as most others will.
#3 It holds up to lots of wear and is easily rolled up and carried about in a purse or diaper bag. Because of the design you don't have to worry about it getting wrinkled.
#4 It's delicate. Even though it can be rolled up and stuffed in a diaper bag it is still so, very delicate and feminine.
Plus, along with the mantilla, I am giving away a copy of The Chapel Veil, Symbol of the Spouse of Christ by Elizabeth Black and Emily Griswold! This is a lovely little booklet discussing the veil as a symbol of the identity and vocation of a woman, and the veil and the Eucharist.

I am: a work in progress, Catholic, wife to fantastic husband of 16 years and home-educating mom to 9 blessings plus one in Heaven. Trying not to take one second of this glorious time for granted. I love the feel of yarn moving through my fingers, the smell of a new book and the warmth of a hot cup of tea or coffee (depending on the time of day) in my hand.
