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. On the first page was their Merry Music Makers Collection by Kristina Gaughran. Each are priced at $24.95 US currency. They are so adorable and great if you normally have a big holiday tree.
Swingin’ Sax, Groovin’ Guitar, and Playful Piano (my fave of the three):
I especially love them because they remind me of a documentary I once saw regarding unique ice cave music concerts 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.
Here’s another mini haul during Christmas in July ;). I picked up three to add to my collection while wandering around New Jersey’s Preakness Shopping Center:
Eighth in the Series: 2017 Candied Christmas Rose from Hallmark’s annual cupcake collection (please see my Hallmark cupcake ornament post for more information),
Floral Birdhouse by Edythe H. Kegrize, which is a Spring ornament for my garden themed collection,

and Welcoming Wreath by Nature’s Sketchbook: Marjolein’s Garden/Jim Kemme. I will add this ornament to my Marjolein’s Garden post.

They bring a smile to my face every time I look at them. I always store all my Christmas ornaments away once the holidays are over but I normally keep my spring/summery ones out year-round unless I need extra space for other things. I will include a picture soon on a separate post.
