Hand Painted Family Tree

Full Family Tree

This is my absolute favorite family treasure! My grandpa used to work at an elder craftsman’s store where older crafters sold quilts, toys, paintings and wood crafts. My aunt got this made this for my grandparents as a gift and it hung on there wall ever since. The tree is hand painted onto wood and the little figurines (not sure if they were painted or not) were attached on top of the wood.

Growing up as a kid, I would look up at this hanging in my grandparent’s hallway and think how magical it was and now I have it hanging in my home, looking at it makes me so happy! It reminds me of where I came from and how much I love my family and miss those who aren't around anymore like my grandpa (I love you!)

It's me!
