The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Pat- You have hit on one of my favorite things-baptismal gowns. I am posting pictures this weekend of the one I made and my newest grandson just got baptized in. What sweet, sweet photos you have here- xo Diana

Deb said...

Hi Pat - Yes, I understand your love for cats. I have made a little business out of my admiration for them. I offer care for them when people travel. Your blog is so pretty. I know I'll be back again soon. I love the little gown and slip. I have two grand-children under 3 and one on the way. Life is good. Hugs, Deb

Beautiful, and I love it against the ironing board!

So lovely. Must have been a work of love in the past to keep the Christening gowns so white.

Such sweet memories in these photos I am sure. I like how you associated white with purity here. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I like the crisp white christening gowns and how you've displayed them. The embroidery is pretty too.
