Christmas Tree Carvings:Second Week

The next five Christmas tree carvings lovingly created by my husband.*

*Many of you will remember my husband’s tradition of carving the stump of our family’s Christmas tree each year, into a creature.  Each creature represents  a sustaining memory of something significant to us in that year.  In addition, he cleverly inserts a penny with the year’s date into the bottom of each little sculpture to document its year.

Today we have a collection of thirty sculptures. Each week until the end of the year, I’ll be posting photos of the carvings that I haven’t previously posted.  Each carving is precious to us.   I hope you will enjoy them as well.

 This Christmas tree carving honors a little starfish that fascinated our eldest, summer of 1988.

1987 Christmas Tree Stump

This is Greta, after Greta Garbo.  The memory of our Christmas tree from 1987 lives on. Just like the memory of Greta.
