Tree #4

This is the final tree I got up this year, I promise :) It's the twin tree to #3 from the previous post - we inherited it from hubby's grandmother, and it is completely decorated in her ornaments.

There are no lights, because it's set on a wall with no outlets. The garland is wooden and has a retro feel, and the angel is definitely old, but I honestly don't know the stories behind most of the ornaments yet.

A few of my favorites are the red wooden lobster, and the wire lobster trap that I do know symbolize Gloria's childhood home in Maryland. Her father, Captain Riley, was actually a lobsterman himself.
