Our heirloom tree skirt

Steve's grandma Gertrude Officer crocheted this tree skirt for Steve and I giving it to us as a wedding gift 19 years ago. It has been the only tree skirt to adorn our Lindgren-style tree through the years.
We love it and treasure it.
And think of Grandma Officer, who made it with love for us and know she smiles from Heaven as she watches us use it each year.
