Across from the dining room was a display room of Christmas ornaments for each Tennessee County and they were in alphabetical order. Luckily the Smith County(my home town) ornament was on a lower shelf. The artist that painted the Smith County ornament graduated with me and he and I were voted "Most Talented" of the Senior Class. Through out high school we could be found together with our heads and hands into some sort of art project. He may go by Bill Reece now but he will always be Billy to me. Again I apologize about the blurry camera work.
I took this and the one below to show my best friend who lives in Macon, GA. the Robertson County ornament when she arrives for Christmas.
Of course I had to take a photo of the Dolly ornament.
When you come out of the display room to your left in the hallway is this Nativity scene. I think it is gorgeous. The painting above of the little girls is wonderful. The Kitty Justice is to have a book with all the ornaments pictured along with a little tidbit about the county and artist. Do you think there is such a book and I just do not know about it's existence? If not the powers that be need to get with it and make one.
