My Ancestor Tree

My Ancestor Tree is done! Actually I need a picture of our family, but we have had new babies and son in laws added so we are doing a current one at Thanksgiving and will add it then.
(Fall leaves still up - the rest of the room isn't decorated yet.)
This tree revolves so every side is packed with things. Our daughter was here the other night and sat in there for a long time and said, "Everytime the tree goes around I see something new!" It is beautiful, the picture really doesn't do it justice...not sure how to fix that.

This is the tree topper. On the other side of the doll is where our family pix will be hung.

You did a super job of incorporating all of the stuff from you family! I love that there is a whole cookie jar hiding in there! Very nice tribute!

Your Ancestor tree is beautiful! What a great idea! I wish I had things like that from my ancestors! I can barely get passed my Grandparents, and I don't have anything that belonged to them.
