Christmas Tree in The General Crook House

 This small tree is in general Crook's bedroom. He was an avid hunter, so the birds and pheasant feathers are an appropriate representation of the man. This room also held the stuffed birds (below) in a convex glass frame. I think they're sandpipers. I was icked out when I saw this, but Mary Connealy was oddly fascinated. Should we look for them to show up in one of her books?


  1. Hey there! I'm so excited to see all of your Christmas tree pictures. I shalllive vicariously through your blog photos. Due to our move, we can't put our tree up. But, I look forward to what you have to offer this year, with great anticipation, and holiday cheer! I love the holidays! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Thank YOU for stopping by faithfully.

    I will probably have a very small tree - placed up very high - because we have a crawler and climber this year. YIKES she's busy!

  3. Cheryl,
    I loved the feathers on the trees. The framed birds were pretty odd, but there were several stuffed animals in the house. It must be a male thing.
