We've found pictures and information on a few new 2013 ornaments.
First In Series: We've previously shown pictures of the new Heavenly Belles and North Pole Tree Trimmers, but we were excited to see three more new series! including a series for Halloween!
Heavenly Belles
Highly detailed and artfully crafted, this new Hallmark Keepsake ornament series will feature child-like angels paired with favorite holiday icons and designed as a porcelain bell.

North Pole Tree TrimmersEach ornament in this new Keepsake ornament series will feature a member of Santa's elite tree trimming team. There will be a repaint version of this ornament available at the 2013 National KOC "Hangin With Your Buddies" event.
Santa CertifiedThis new Hallmark ornament series will feature the best of Santa's hand made gifts.
First in the series is a locomotive. 
Cool IciclesThis new ornament series will feature icicles topped by a festive figure. First in the series for 2013 is a snowman. He looks quite dapper with his top hat, scarf and pipe.
Happy HalloweenThe first Halloween series! This new series will feature ornaments depicting a spooky scene. First in the series features a cute witch on broomstick inside what appears to be a jack-o-lantern "panorama ball."
We don't have any pictures, but we have heard that there are at least two series ending this year - Kringleville and Mickey's Christmas Carol.
Hallmark has unveiled a few more ornaments on the Keepsake Ornament Club pages:
Three from Julie Forsyth
Beautiful Ballerina
Ballerina Dreams
Cinderelly! Cinderelly!
And a few more sneak peeks:
The Band Concert
Slide lever to see the ornament illuminate, simple animation and to hear music from the "William Tell Overture." Features photocells printed around the perimeter from the 1935 cartoon short - "The Band Concert."
A Light Snack Taz
Oh no Taz! Taz has swallowed part of the light string!
Press button to see the lights glow inside Taz's tummy.
Lionel Train #18
2037 Steam Locomotive
I'll be out on vacation next week, so no blog article; but I imagine everyone will be busy watching their mailboxes for the 2013 40th Anniversary - KOC Edition Dreambook. Word is they will be on their way to KOC members next week.
Until next time,
Happy Collecting!
