yes I am still opping

 I have been busy lately and trips to the op shops have been few and far between.

When I have been out I have found some real treasures.

A very pretty butter dish caught my eye in an op shop in Langwarren.  I will have to check the name out tomorrow.

Earlier this week I took a drive down along the beach road to Sorrento and visited one of my favourite oppies.

 The lovely ladies in the sorting room called my in and asked if I would like to see something special.  Well of course I would.  

They were unpacking this gorgeous Christening gown and slip.  Hand made and complete with a little piece of paper with the names of 3 boys and the dates in the 1960s. 

 I am thinking of framing this gown as it is quite fragile.

Great to see you back here too! You find the most exquisite things. The butter dish is gorgeous - I have a similar one that belonged to my late MIL.
The childs garments are so lovely, just looking at the smocking...

I have a milk jug and cake plate with a very similar design to your butter dish. Ladies in crinolines and bonnets must have been all the rage. :)
