I dragged it into the house the first winter I lived here. I'm sure everyone thought I was nuts. I don't mind...and I love the tree. So much so, that I have not been able to talk myself into getting rid of it.
If you look at that letter E, underneath that bottom corner, you can see a vintage glass bird ornament on the tree limb. It's adorable!
There is also a key tied there too. That key belonged to an old house in Little Rock, which was my son's first home when he moved out of our home. Seems I have a huge habit of saving "stuff."
