Several years ago, my mom, the world traveler, decided she wanted to take all of her kids on a special trip with her. She took Kathy to Greece, Sandy to Singapore, Dan and his family to Hilton Head and me to Europe. Sadly, Melanie never got her trip with mom. I will cherish the memories of my trip forever.
Mom and I spent 10 days visiting Germany, Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic in the fall of 2000. We had a great time seeing the sights and SHOPPING! We were expert shoppers and had a to buy an extra suitcase to get all of our items home.
While in Vienna, we went into a Catholic store...of course, she was Linda Hof. She could find a way to make shopping a religious experience. I found the MOST BEAUTIFUL baptismal gown EVER! She was unaware that hubby and I were trying to get pregnant. I was looking for an excuse to buy the dress and hold onto it for the future. Instead, she bought it (not sure how that happened) and most of the grandkids have been baptized in it since.
The embroidery is unbelievable! (However, my photography stinks!) It was unlike anything I had ever seen. The red is really striking and the detail is fantastic.
