If You Love Puppies You Will Love This Series….

Puppy Love is a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament series that has been around since 1991 and is one of the longer running series. Many different breads of dogs are shown in these ornaments. Each year a different pup will get to wear a brass tag as he joins his fellow pooches in the appealing “Puppy Love” series.

Where is all started….

The first in the Puppy Love series is Puppy Love #1. This cute blonde cocker spaniel is holding on to a candy cane, wearing a red collar with a heart shaped brass tag with “91” printed on it.


My Favorite….

My favorite dog bread and favorite ornament of the series is Puppy Love #3. This cute Golden Retriever pup is sliding into your heart this Christmas. He is wearing a heart shaped, brass tag on his collar that is engraved with “93” on it.


A Family Favorite….

The 2007, Puppy Love #17 has a bulldog with the brass colored heart on its dog collar with 07 on it for the year. This beautiful bulldog is relaxing in its festively colored bed. The bulldog lover in your life would love to add this to their Christmas tree this holiday season.


Thank you for taking the time to learn about the Puppy Love series from Hallmark Keepsake ornaments. There are so many ways you could display the puppies from this series. You would have an entire tree dedicated to this series or put them on a wreath you hang on a door. My sweet dog, Charlie has his own tree with all of these ornaments on it. Everyone in our house has their own tree. Do not forget that Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments make a great gift for anyone in your life. Any dog lover would appreciate a thoughtful gift like these.

After looking through all of the adorable puppy ornaments I cannot wait to get home and cuddle with my dog Charlie.

An Elf’s Work is Never Done….Good Thing We Love What We Do!

Being an elf is a very special job. Not everyone get to be an elf and have fun while working at the Ornament Factory. Life is not all about work for us though, we do know how to let loose and have a good time. Little Daniel the Elf here! I was hoping to share with you all about a typical day for me.

My morning…..

A typical morning for me and the other elves starts out with waking up and getting some exercise in. Exercise is a great way to start your day. Do you enjoy exercising or know someone who does. This Gym Dandy Hallmark Keepsake Ornament would be a great ornament to give someone who enjoys their time at the gym.


After some exercise, which usually includes walking my my sweet dog, Charlie, I eat my breakfast. I’m not super picky about what I eat for breakfast so I usually have a bowl of cereal or some scrambled eggs.

This is an Hallmark Keepsake Ornament that reminds me of when my Charlie was just a puppy. It is Puppy Love #14. Look for a future blog about the Hallmark Ornament Puppy Love series.


After all of that, it is time to head to The Ornament Factory to get to work. When we arrive there we have to check on the orders that have come in over night and start pulling those from the selves. Check out this cool 2018 Hallmark Ornament! It is Chutes and Ladders, Family Game Night #5.



By Mid Day…….

By mid day we have lots of orders boxed and labeled ready to be picked up. Lunchtime is always enjoyable being able to hang out with the other elves. Elliott the Head Elf here at The Ornament Factory always makes sure that we aren’t taking too long of a lunch break. Most of the time, the elves have a sandwich and chips for lunch. All of the elves have different lunch boxes. We have matching Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments for our lunchboxes. Brandon the Elf has the Star Wars lunch box. He’s a big Star Wars fan!


Little Daniel the Elf has the Mickey Mouse lunchbox. He has Mickey Mouse everything!


It is always nice to chat with everyone else about what is going on in their lives and what they have coming up. I also really like that I can get dinner ideas from my friends. After a great lunch with the other elves it is back to work we go.

Ending Our Work Day…..

Lots of boxes have been packed and labeled, ready to be shipped out tomorrow. Lots of Hallmark Ornaments have been pulled from the shelves while many have been restocked to the shelves after they were inventoried. The floors have been swept and the counters have been wiped down. Our day has come to an end. After a great day working we like to make sure we clean up around the workshop so we can start the next day easier.

I hope you have enjoyed this small incite into my day. Time to get back to it!

Elliott, the Head Elf
