kernel: Kentucky's Christmas Ornament Features the Governor's Mansion

Governor's Mansion Christmas Ornament - Kentucky
2011 Commonwealth Christmas Ornament
Announced last month, the Commonwealth's Division of Historic Properties annual Christmas ornament features the Governor's Mansion this year. In a repeat of last year's state capitol ornament, K&M Crafts of Kentucky (Campbellsville) was selected to craft this year's ornament out of maple and cherry woods.

The ornament features a scale Governor's Mansion atop a pedestal which features the state seal and the signatures of both Governor and First Lady Beshear. The Beaux Arts villa, inspired by Marie Antoinette's La Petite Trianon, was completed in 1914.

Earlier this week, I ventured to Frankfort to pick up the above-ornament (pictured on our family tree). While there, I snapped this great panorama of the state capitol:

To All Kaintuckeeans... 
Merry Christmas!
(and Happy Holidays!)
