Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year to you all from everyone at The Ornament Factory! We wish you all a great year ahead. Did you make a new years resolution?

This Colorway (or repaint) Hallmark Keepsake Ornament was exclusively available at the 2015 Destination Keepsakes Hallmark National event to attendees of the Hallmark Local Club Dinner.

Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments Candlelight Service

This Hallmark Ornament Series featured different churches that would would glow softly through their stained glass windows when connected to a miniature Christmas light string. The Candlelight Services Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Series began in 1998 with The Stone Church, and ended in 2009 with The Old Brick Church. In 2017 Hallmark Ornaments came out with another ornaments named Candlelight Services that is a nice addition to the series. Each of the churches in this series represents a style of architecture from a different time period, location, or tradition.

Countryside Church….

Countryside Church was first available in 2008 and was modeled after late-Victorian or Gothic Revival churches, the steeples of white clapboard buildings like this one are visible across the Midwestern countryside as reminders of hard work and good faith. These churches, with their creaking floorboards, weathered roofs, and stained glass, are the homes of more modern congregations today. But their Christmas services are times of old-fashioned togetherness, warmth, and rejoicing echoes of the pioneering faithful who built them over a century ago. Attach to miniature light string for optional lighting effect.

Light glows steadily and softly from within the ornament, illuminating the windows and reflecting the beauty and hope of the Christmas season.
