Ornament Trees, Stands, Displays

August 3rd, 2017 Posted in Holiday | No Comments »

A great alternative to tabletop trees either real or faux are the numerous ornament trees, stands, and displays on the market.  Some are also easy to build and customize to your heart’s content.  The one I recently purchased from eBay as old new stock is the 2006 Spring Ornament Display.  It is perfect for storing most of my Marjolein Bastin ornaments and has the added bonus of taking up very little space on my shelf.   Yes, I still owe you a picture of mine ;).

Here’s another design which could easily be hung on a wall or you could build your own to accommodate larger ornaments.  If mounted on a wall, it wouldn’t even consume any table space!

A Home for a Gnome

In 2014, Hallmark launched it’s first gnome home keepsake entitled “A Home for a Gnome” by Hallmark Keepsake Artist Tammy Haddix and while I wasn’t sure if this would indeed become part of a series, I searched again this past year 2015 while I was at my local Hallmark purchasing holiday greeting card sets.  Lo and behold, there it was!  I have a soft spot for the elementals so here are the two I have collected so far with a special Hallmark sneak peek for you (time to get excited!)…
