A Cozy Evening on a Cold Winters Night

On a cold winter’s night it is nice to cozy up to the fire with a soft blanket and your dog and a special someone. With all of the cold weather we have been having here at The Ornament Factory a cozy evening by the fire sounds nice. We are going to be having some even colder temperatures in the next few days. Stay warm friends!

Best Night of the Week….

There is nothing better than sitting down with the one you love and enjoying your favorite television show. Mickey and Minnie are cozy and are watching their favorite show, ‘The Wonderful World of Disney.”


Snowy Mountain Lodge….

Press the button on the side of the ornament and skiers begin to descend the slope, skaters move around the pond, the fireplace inside the lodge flickers, and the pond glows a beautiful icy blue. This 2007 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament also plays “Let it Snow.”


I hope you all stay warm and hopefully can find sometime to relax with your loved ones. The other elves and I are have some fun planned for this week with the cold weather. We are going to have a chili cook off. Elliot the Head Elf is going to judge it. I cannot wait to taste what everyone comes up with. Another activity we have planned is to have a movie night with hot chocolate and popcorn. Jack the Elf is going to make a few different flavors of popcorn. He is on a cooking/baking kick lately. He has made some yummy treats.

For All of Kitten Lovers, Here is Mischievous Kittens

A few weeks ago I did a blog on the Hallmark Keepsake series, Puppy Love. Just to balance it out here is the series from Hallmark Ornaments for the kitten lovers, Mischievous Kittens. The series started back in 1999 and has continued every year since.

Where it all started….

First in the Mischievous Kittens Hallmark Ornament Series is Mischievous Kittens #1. This is a hard to find ornament. This 1999 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament features a very playful kitten who seems to want a goldfish as a friend.


As the years went on….

What a super Christmas toy this little kitten’s found-Before he even touches it,
it starts to roll around! Third in the Mischievous Kittens Hallmark Ornament Series, 2001 Mischievous Kittens #3 would be a great addition to your Christmas tree.


Twas the night before Christmas,and Kitty was stirring, lapping up milk and happily purring, when, what to her mischievous eyes did appear, but Santa himself who smiled through his beard. I believe that’s my milk he said with a pat, but you’re welcome to it, you have been such a good cat. #10 in the Mischievous Kittens Hallmark Keepsake Ornament series.


The 2018 Hallmark Keepsake Mischievous Kitten#20….

Mischievous Kitten #20 from the popular Mischievous Kitten series was first released in July of 2018. This has  a playful kitten sitting in a red box adorned with white snowflakes, playing and getting tangled in the lights and garland. This is a must have to the kitten lover in your life.


Are you a dog lover or a cat lover. That seems to a debate that comes up when we talk about the Hallmark Puppy Love Series and the Mischievous Kitten series. Leave us a comment with which is your favorite and why. I know Jack the Elf and I are big puppy lovers.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and comment. It is never too early to start buying your Hallmark Keepsake ornaments for you and your loved ones. Go to The Ornament Factory websites and have fun shopping! http://www.hallmarkornaments.com

The Great Debate….

I have found over the years that when to put up your Christmas tree is a big debate. Some people start decorating in early fall (like the stores do these days) and others wait until after Thanksgiving or later.

The early decorators…

I have found it interesting what people have been posting online about putting trees up already. It’s amazing to see the Christmas spirit in this group! Some of the early decorators get a head start on decorating because it takes them a long time to decorate and they have a lot to put up and out. I have several friends who have a holiday party early in December so they want to be decorated for the party so they start early.

The Wait to Decorators….

On the other hand there are people who like to wait until after a certain date or just decorate close to Christmas. It is interesting to hear why people what to decorate.

Let’s be real, there is no right or wrong answer to this great debate. It is whatever you feel is best for you. Some people would like to see the Christmas season longer and some would like it shorter. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

Outside Decorating…

For outside decorating it is easier to get lights and decorations out when the weather is nicer. Just because it is up does not mean that you have to turn it on if you do not want to.

The Good News for everyone!

This good news is for everyone, the ones who want their trees up now and the ones who like to hold off. You can always order your Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments from The Ornament Factory! You can always help a friend of loved one out and order an ornament or two for them too.

I like to decorate early because I love Christmas! It is always fun to hear if other decorate early like me or not.


Back to work for now!

Beautiful Barbie

Barbie, the iconic doll, that children have played with for years. Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments created a collection of Barbie for everyone who has enjoyed Barbies. The Barbie Hallmark Keepsake Collection is one of the most popular collections Hallmark Ornaments has. There is a gap in the ornaments from 2012-2015 due to a licensing agreement but thankfully Barbie was able to make a return the Hallmark Ornaments.

Holiday Barbie Collection

The Holiday Barbie collection dates back to 1993 with the first of the collection, Holiday Barbie #1.  There are


After the Barbie ornaments made their return in 2015, the Hallmark Holiday Barbie Collection started again for #1.This years Holiday Barbie Collection ornament is 2018 Holiday Barbie #4.


2018 Tree Topper

2018 brought the first Barbie tree topper. What a beautiful addition to your Hallmark Ornament Barbie Tree!  Connect this tree topper to Hallmark’s power adapter (included) to see Barbie’s dress illuminate with one of two different colored continuous light effects. Plugs into a standard 120-volt wall outlet.


The memories…..

Many people have memories of playing with Barbies or seeing other play with them and remember how beautiful Barbie is. A Hallmark Barbie Christmas tree would make any young girl or even a woman happy. There are so many Barbie Hallmark Ornaments to choose from!

Picture with me……a dark room with a big green Christmas tree with white lights all over it. On the branches are beautiful Hallmark Barbie ornaments. The Barbies are dressed in all sorts of colors. Some of them in elaborate dresses, some dressed to play,  and some dressed professional. On the top of the tree is the beautiful, elegant, almost angelic Barbie glowing atop of the tree. Do you know a child, sister, or friend who would enjoy that? Maybe you would enjoy it. You can find the Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments you need at the Ornament Factory. All of our happy elves are ready to assist you making the perfect Barbie tree! Be sure to shop at http://www.hallmarkornaments.com .
