FIVE MONTHS TODAY......

.....UNTIL CHRISTMAS!



I know that you don't want the reminder, I really don't either but I have to show you my newest ornaments from Hallmark this year. Each year I tell myself that I don't need another ornament on my tree (which is very true), this year I will cut down on the number that I buy (and I have) but when I see them I just fall in love all over again. You can go to Hallmark.com to look at them or pick up the Dream Book at your local store. Also if you are ever searching for a past ornament this site it the best! Hooked On Hallmark

We would have people come into the store to find an ornament that may have come out several years earlier. They didn't understand that each year, year after year each ornament on display is brand new. No repeats other then being similar looking ones that are in a series or the occasional remake in a new color. I did go through a period where I didn't even look at them until the day after Christmas so I could buy them at 50% off. I look back now and wonder how I managed to to that!


So here are the newest additions to my collection:

(click on the pictures to enlarge them)

Some of these are Series that I have been collecting for years, some are Limited Quantity which means only 8 per store and the rest are just new designs this year.

Here are a few up close & personal!

I love the detail with ANDY on the bottom of the shoes of Woody & Buzz!
I was excited about Toto this year since my Skye B is a Toto dog.

Wow! What a collection! And yes, it is almost time for Christmas again! I found a little gift shop going out of business yesterday, and bought my first few gifts!

Mara said...

OH MY GOODY TWO SHOES!!!! I knew you were a Queen, but never thought it could be Queen of the Christmas ornaments...

I don't know what else to say!

Joyce said...

I love that this is cutting back : ) I can't resist pretty Christmas ornaments either. I'm pretty sure you can never have too many. You can always add a tree, right?

That is so funny because I was just thinking of Christmas stuff too. I want to find my newlyweds a "1st Christmas" ornament. and the Noah's Ark one, gotta find that one too.... Debby, your tree was gorgeous last year. Just as you are a "kid-in-a-candy-store" with ornaments, I am that way with stained glass. I go in the shop where I buy glass and my eyes just glaze over and I my little heart just races!!! Now you can rest until time to get out the tree ♥

What a great collection, and it's never too early to get ready for Christmas.

Amy said...

Laura said...

EHHHHH!!!! That was funny to read that your blog was about Christmas! I so haven't thought about that! I'm dragging my feet because I don't want to get to August which means I have to start thinking about SCHOOL!!! I love Halmark ornaments! I feel like 90 percent of our family tree is from Halmark! I love the ones with the family pics! We have them and it's been fun looking back at them over the years! Hugs- L

Unknown Mami said...

I can't wait to see a picture of your tree when the time comes.

I love the one that looks like a trailer.

blueviolet said...

I have to admit that I am particularly partial to Hallmark ornaments myself!

Mommy, I'm Home said...

otin said...

They should just change the date of Christmas to 7/25 and then we could have Christmas in December sales! lol

Cherie said...

Wowwee girly! I went to Hallmark yesterday and looked at all of them. I fell in LOVE with the Fisher Price Airplane as me and my brothers had one of those when we were little - oh the memories...I will definately be getting that this year. I love the camper too and, of course, Edward and Bella!

Tauna over at Garden of Egan is complaining about the Christmas countdowns (I have one at the bottom of my blog too - Ha Ha)!
Oh well LOVE CHRISTMAS!!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Debby, I love Hallmark ornaments, and these are sooo cute! I love that one that looks like a little village on a snow covered mountain. Oh, and that little vintage r.v. with the striped awning - how cute! the Noah's Ark looks really neat too. Oh My goodness! I really don't want to start thinking about Christmas yet, but you sure have made me a little bit excited about getting out the Christmas decor. laurie

Kirby3131 said...

Oh goodness, I thought that there were just three or four new ornaments a year. I didn't realize there were so many! I'm really glad that I didn't start collecting those LOL I would never be able to choose!
