2011 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments

2011 Hallmark Child's Age Collection

I've been busy this week adding the new 2011 ornaments to the Hooked on Hallmark Ornaments database. In the next week or so we will begin acccepting preorders for the 2011 Hallmark ornametns, so I've been spending every waking moment adding the items with description and pictures.

This week when I was paging through my 2011 Hallmark Ornament Dreambook I noticed something that I knew I would want to point out here on the blog.

If you have been buying the Child's Age Collection with the teddy bears and cookies - this is the FINAL year. This year's ornaments will be undated and you will need to purchase all of the ornaments in the collection to complete your collection. If you bought the 2010 Baby's First Christmas last year ... this year you will need to buy Baby's Second, Child's Third, Child's Fourth and Child's Fifth this year.

This is the second time that Hallmark has ended a Child's Age Collection with out continuing the dated pieces to the final year. Previously Hallmark ended the Child's Age puppies and kittens. MANY collectors didn't find out they were meant to buy all the pieces in the collection during the final year until they were unable to find the ornaments in the stores in 2007.

If this collection is like the previous collection the Child's Fifth Christmas will be the hardest to find. Whether you started in 2007 or in 2010, EVERYONE will need the Child's Fifth.

I have to say I LOVE the new Child's Age Photoholders and look forward to this new collection. I would have loved to have had a set like this for my kids.

Willow Tree Angel Ornaments

Hooked on Ornaments is pleased to announce that we are now carrying Willow Tree ornaments. We are excited to expand our product line to include these beautiful angel ornaments.

Artist Susan Lordi hand carves each original Willow Tree® sculpture. Using family and friends as models, Susan tries to capture a moment in time, or express a feeling. Pieces are cast from her original carving, and then individually painted by hand. Softly washed colors, carved and metal accents, and representative icons of nature mark Susan's work.

"I try to keep the interpretation of Willow Tree open. I hope this makes it more personal, and allows the viewer to decide its meaning."

Willow Tree was introduced in January 2000. The line has grown to encompass those sentiments that we most want to express. To our friends, to our family, to our teachers; to those near and dear, to those far away.

The original inspiration for Willow Tree still holds true today: Willow Tree is an intimate, personal line of figurative sculptures representing qualities and sentiments that help us feel close to others, heal wounds, or treasure relationships. Susan Lordi carves each original piece with this thought in mind. Her figures continue to evolve as she identifies emotions so important for us to convey, and renders them in simple, pure gestures. These art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope... all the emotions of a life well lived.

We know that you will find the Willow Tree ornaments as beautiful and meaningful as we do.

Trombone Tony Joins the Snowman Band

2010 Snowman Band
Keyboard Ken, Saxophone Joe, Guitar Freddy & Trumpet Tom

Last year, my family LOVED the 2010 Snowman Band. Originally, I had to have the set because I have a High School Marching Band sax player in the house. But the set was a HUGE hit with my daughter and husband as well. We each had our favorite band member and whenever someone walked by, music quickly followed.

I was delighted to see there will be a new member joining the band in 2011...
Trombone Tony will interact with the other members of the Snowman Band. He plays "Joy To The World" and "Good King Wenceslas." Trombone Tony will be available beginning November 4th. I am going to go out on a limb here and guess that he will be difficult to find. So get yours early. (Because he will be most desired by collectors who have the previous 4 pieces and I don't believe those 4 pieces are being re-released I would assume that production numbers will be low for Trombone Tony.)
