Our Family Tree



Be still my heart!
I have been looking for over a year for an artful way to display our family tree.
I was just about to make one myself, but then I came across this one here.
I contemplated being a massive copy-cat and making my own version, but this was definitely one time that I wanted the ORIGINAL.

It arrived just minutes ago and I am crying joyful tears.
It is so well done, attached to high quality textured matt board.



 I love how Shawn and I's initials are 'carved' into the trunk,
with the first and middle initials of each of our sweet babes below.

 

So now it sits leaned against the wall...
cause we still don't have our art shelves up in the family room.
Now I have added incentive to poke, prod, nag, gently nudge my sweet hubby to get the shelves done!

Dawn! I received my gift today and I LOVED IT!! Did you know that red birds are my favorite. I love to watch them outside my kitchen window. It's so precious, I am going to hang it in my window! Thanks so very much!! Thank you for all of your kind words as well, very sweet of you.
