Nostalgic Houses & Shops

The Nostalgic Houses and Shops, one of the longer running Hallmark Keepsake Ornament series, started with the 1984 Victorian Dollhouse, and is still going strong today. On of Hallmark’s more popular series, these cute little houses and shops make the perfect holiday village. These ornaments can hang on your tree, or be displayed on any flat surface.

A Colonial Christmas….

Welcome to Christmas, Colonial-style! Come in and warm up by the hearth for a while. The tree is all trimmed and the fire is lit won’t you get comfy and stay for a bit?  Colonial Christmas is a beautiful colonial home that is ready for Christmas.

Bookstore….

The 24th ornament in the Nostalgic Houses & Stores series came out in 2007 and is called Bookstore. The beautiful red brick building was a nice addition to the series.

Things have been so busy at The Ornament Factory these days. Trust me, I am not complaining, I love what we do. I am just getting behind in wrapping gifts and making cookies. I think some of the other elves and I are going to have a cookie making day sometime this weekend. That will be so much fun! What cookies have you made so far? Do you have any cookies recipes that you recommend? Have a great day everyone!
