The Grimmwood Tree

Some of you mentioned you would like to see the Grimmwood Tree close up so here we go. I am a sentimental person and I can remember each and every ornament and who gave the ornament to me. I took some special ornaments to Grimmwood as well as adding a few new ones.

Some of my handmade ornaments. Our tree skirt only goes half way around the tree due to the heat vent.

This is a new ornament from my friend, Sharon, who lives in North Carolina. It looks so cute on the tree.

I stitched this one but my friend, Sandy, at I Majored in Home Economics passed the chart on to me.

One of the many homemade angel ornaments that Barbara and William have made for us over the years. I always wait in anticipation to see what they will come up with next!

My childhood friend and fourth cousin, Linda, gave me this ornament back in 1992. It is made from Georgia Granite.

 The truck is new and the Christmas tree is a vignette from a Stacy Nash Primitivies pattern.

It looks good nest to the barn I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  The little crocheted stocking is from my friend, Kathleen.

An ormament from my blog friend, Gina.

You have to have a few sheep on the tree.

I love the bright white of these ornaments. They really stand out.

The snowman is from my friend, Maggie and the cow will always be one of my favorite ornaments.

Smoky Bear from my memory of my Daddy who worked for the US Forest Service.

The Wooden Star is from my friend, Susan.

I always enjoy showing off my ornaments...each is precious to me.

Many thanks to  Sandy who solved my commenting problem. Click on her name for the post that explains the problem.  I am back in the commenting business.

Love each and every ornament on your tree. It is fun to remember who gave each one and the meaning behind them.

They are all precious. The best kind of tree. I am headed with Lindsay and Tucker for our annual Christmas shopping day in Fairhope.

Is the Christmas tree from Stacy Nash still available? Love the simplicity of it.

Nancy that is from Deck the Halls chart by Stacy Nash and it is still available to purchase. I sitiched the lady on the front separately and used the sled as an ornament.

What fun to see your ornaments up close, Arlene--they are so special. I have the same feelings about my ornaments, especially the stitched ones.
