It’s going to be an extra spooky Halloween in many areas of St. Johns County still trying to clean up after Hurricane Matthew. Fortunately we don’t have many trick or treaters in our neighborhood because we still have a lot of fallen trees and debris. If you’re out and about tonight be extra careful.

Faire Ideas

Looking for creative ways to display your family tree? A quick search for “family tree” at Etsy reveals dozens of ideas.

Family tree ideas at Etsy

You can build your own using blank charts or have an artist custom-design one for you. There are tabletop trees as well as trees that fill an entire wall. The artwork is gorgeous and the jewelry – yes jewelry – is delightful. You’ll find all kinds of eye-catching ideas as you browse through the shops and products. Whether you use these ideas as inspiration to make your own tree or choose to have one of Etsy’s creative vendors create it for you, the result will be a beautiful piece of art that will attract attention. It’s a great starting point to generate interest in family history.

 

Reminder for those who plan to attend our Christmas luncheon at Amici’s, menu selection and payment must be received no later than November 30th.
