Family Tray


I think this is my favorite tray so far. I love family heirlooms and this photo is one of my all time favorites(besides my daddy's baby picture which doesn't fit in this frame). My husband's grandmother gave me this photo of my father in law and I love the way he is pouting. I can imagine he threw quite the fit after this was shot. The crucifix is off my grandmother's casket. My dad gave it to me a couple of years ago. It hung above my bedroom door my entire childhood, but until I was grown I never new he took it off his mothers casket when he was just 15 years old. He and his mother were very close (she made him promise when he had a daughter that he would name her Paula Renee'-hence the old lady name) so when he gave it to me I was very honored. Have a wonderful day...create a family heirloom of your own! Paula
