2018 Hallmark Mini Haul

October 19th, 2018 Posted in Holiday | No Comments »

I usually purchase these Hallmark ornament series in July but this year it slipped my mind until now.  I’m so excited to be able to say that they are on their way to me.  As an aside, I was so sad to find out that my local free-standing Hallmark store closed it’s doors for the last time during this past Spring :(.  I had really loved this store too.  I have to travel much further now if I want to see any Hallmark items up close.  Though they have an online presence, it’s not the same since another issue is that there are ornaments which are only available for in-store pick up.  I’m really disappointed :/.  Another bummer is that I believe they have discontinued the gnome home series since there are no new designs which can be found for the holiday season of 2018 :(.  Where are you elemental/gnome lovers out there???  Hallmark needs to hear your voice!  Anyway, to end this post on a more positive note, here are pics of what I purchased.  Can you tell I’m a big admirer of Marjolein Bastin yet? ;)
