Marjolein Bastin Nature's Journey

Hooked on Ornaments is now carrying Demdaco's Marjolein Bastin Nature's Journey collection. We are excited to offer this beautiful line of ornaments and home decor inspired by the art of Marjolein Bastin. Our first shipment has arrived and is now available, additional shipments with new designs will be arriving over the next few months. So be sure to bookmark and check back often, we'll keep you posted here when new designs arrive. Our first shipment includes garden flags, figural nightlights, glass ornaments, figural ornaments and miniature plate ornaments. Future shipments include canvas ornaments, blown glass ornaments, watering can ornaments, and wreath ornaments; just to mention a few! They are all beautifully crafted and lovely. Marjolein Bastin's fascination with nature grew into her life's mission, and she began sketching and painting every plant and animal in sight. Inspired by her paintings, each piece tells the story of the beauty that surrounds all of us. "There is a story next to every animal, every butterfly, and every plant, so each day is truly an exploration of nature. Things happen in nature, and I translate them on paper and to people. I cannot simply walk by and paint nature's wonders; I have to be there, to live in there, and I have to be a part of it."

Sneak Peak - 2011 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments

I thought we might spend some time today looking at a few of the 2011 ornaments. It is our understanding that there will be four new series for 2011.

The first series is Pixar and the first ornament in the series will be "Up"

The second series is pictured above - "Santa's Story" has constant light and will be able to lead synchronized light shows when other ornaments are connected to the power cord. The ornament features voice and music to help tell the story of Santa's preparations for his annual journey. The ornament is sculpted by Robert Chad; but also features elements from past work of more than a dozen artists. This ornament is one of four Keepsakes that will be powered by the new Magic cord introduced with the "Wonder and Light" Collection.

Here are a couple of possibilities for the third and fourth series ...

Twelve Days of Christmas and Angels From Around the World.

And here's a little more info on the 2011 Hallmark Keepsake Series ornaments...

2011 Star Trek Legends #2 - Mr Spock

2011 Comic Book Heroes #4 - The Avengers

2011 Christmas Cupcake #2 - Chocolate cupcake in silver line, white frosting and flowers

I adore this Spring Easter themed village - and I'll admit, after Christmas I purchased a small white tree 75% off so I would have a fun Spring tree to decorate! I know what I'm working on this weekend! The egg lights are so cute on the tree! Here's another fun way that Eileen used the Easter egg lights.

Eileen also sent us a picture of her handmade Spring tree which I LOVE! (You can find instructions on making your own in her book - Creative Family Traditions. )
