About a month before visiting the Hallmark location at the Wayne NJ Preakness Shopping Center, I was mailed a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Premiere Event July 15-23 mini catalog. Yes, I’m aware it may be too early to think about the winter holiday but… I’m loving their Merry Music Makers ornaments collection by Kristina Gaughran which includes Swingin’ Sax, Groovin’ Guitar, and Playful Piano penguin figurines, each priced at $24.95 US currency. I especially love them because they remind me of an interesting documentary I saw several months back regarding a unique ice cave/polar music concert such as this one, Classic Concerts in Ice Cave. I was able to see all of the ornaments at the Preakness Center and they most certainly didn’t disappoint.
The second item which caught my attention was their Wooden Miniature Ornament Tree. I bet one could easily create a bigger version to hang regular-sized ornaments. It’s a cute and clever alternative to the usual real or faux Christmas tree for those of you who want to choose the non-traditional route. Anyway, I just wanted to share this with you… Okay, now back to July in all it’s sunny and warm glory!
