Saturday, I was up bright and early to visit my local Hallmark store for the annual ornament premiere event. I love Hallmark ornaments. I started collecting them when I worked at a Hallmark store while I was in high school. Since then, my ornament collection has grown to include my husband and children's favorites.
My oldest daughter has recently developed a deep love for all things Wizard of Oz. Last year, I got her Glenda and the Wicked Witch. I didn't think she would care for this year's WO ornament. But, I was wrong! This years ornament is a sepia colored Miss Gultch riding her bicycle and a Winky Guard.
For our son, he is on a total super hero kick right now. I picked up Thor, Iron Man, and Spiderman. In October, I will get him Captain America to go with the rest of the guys.
I am really excited about some of the iconic 80's figures getting their own ornaments this year. I picked up Mr. Stay Puft from Ghostbusters and I will be getting the E.T and Back to the Future Delorian. I can't wait to get those! I am planning to create an I love the 80's Christmas tree. Last year, I picked up the Gizmo (Gremlins) ornament.
I can't wait to get my ornaments off layaway and pick up the remainder that will be out in October.
