A Very Special Christmas Tree!

Each year I set up this tree in honor of my darling Mother Gloria and Mother-in-law LaVerne, who have both passed. We miss them and especially this time of the year. They made Christmas very special.
This is actually a picture of my Grandmother Alberta when she was a model at age 16. Isn't she darling?!
My Grandmother Sadie crocheted the bell.
Hope you enjoyed seeing this special little tree!

A model at 16 WOW.
Such a pretty tree indeed. I should have some of my mom and dad's pictures made into sweet vintage notes like yours. LOVE that idea.
I also LOVE their sweet names.
Thanks for sharing your special tree Maryjane.
Warm hugs coming your way from Canada.

I love your tree. The year after my mom died, I had a special "Hallie tree", with all my favorite pictures of her made into simple ornaments. How we miss our moms at Christmas.

Fondly,
