Another Framed Family Heirloom

Here is a treasure that my mother has hanging in the guest bedroom of her condo. It is a christening gown and pair of booties that were passed down through her family.  Her grandmother and aunt  wore them first.  Then she wore the dress as a small child during a baptism ceremony.  Pictured below are both her and her aunt wearing them. The other picture is of her grandmother as an adult 100_2792since no photograph was found of her as a child. I had the gown, booties and photographs mounted in a shadow box for a gift to my mother one Christmas.  She was thrilled as she has been the family historian and geneologist for many years.
