Family Tree

F amily is very important to my husband and me. It is also very important to us that our daughter appreciates and knows who her family is, even if some members are no longer with us. So, in honor of our family, we have dedicated a special place in our home just for them.



This is what it looked like before. Originally it had no frame around it. A very good friend helped us frame it out. Now all it needs is a little paint on the frame and a bit of creativity.



I know it's a bit cliché, but I think it works. Don't you?



"...the greatest of these is Love..."1 Corinthians 13:13
Family and Love go hand in hand.

I'm very happy to present to you our FaMiLy!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hi, Ana,

Good morning Ana,

I do LOVE your Family Tree. Those pictures seem to just "fit in" at the right spot on those branches! I too feel it is important to honor the LOVE of two people. The best way to keep our LOVED ones in our thoughts and prayers is to see their faces daily and your family tree does just that!

Thanks for sharing it with us.

PS I tried the chalkboard tray project the other day and as I excitedly removed the tape all the paint peeled off the bottom of the tray--YIKES---will try it again with an oil based paint!
