Christening Day

Thought I would just share this photo.  Everybody in it was christened in the same family christening gown - including me!   My children, my niece and nephew, my great nephews and my eldest granddaughter as well as little Connie!

I don't know the full history of the christening gown but it is Victorian, and was possibly my grandmother's gown.  My brother was also christened in it (although he is no longer alive).  I am also not sure if my mum was christened in it as we have no photos of her before her marriage (her house was bombed the week before her wedding, and all the family photos were lost!)

I think it is a lovely photo (and I scrubbed up fairly well didn't I? lol!)

What a wonderful photo Mags, Connie looks so beautiful and I have to say so do you. Such a lovely outfit and looks great on the new slimline you! Great family photo and story about the christening gown.

Love Sheila xx
