Altered Pages Monday-Lady with Bird in Hat

In the late 1800's "Women's hats were decorated with wings, breasts and whole birds. According to Harper's Bazaar, in 1875 the merle, or blackbird, was a favorite, and especially the merle bronzé, a Brazilian blackbird, which was not black, but had blue and bronze shades on its wings and back." - Source Victoriana.com

No birds were harmed to create this hat!!! The tag is created with two Altered Pages Collage Sheets: Bits of Paris and Colorful Birds. What a festive tag to decorate a package or gift bag.
