Christmas in May?!

Every spring I eagerly await for the new Hallmark Ornament Dream Book to come out. It actually went public a few weeks ago, but I've waited to share some of my favorite ornaments until now.

Favorite #1- National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

I've been loving the fact, that for the past several years, Hallmark has been featuring my favorite Christmas movie in ornament form. This year's ornament is infamous Moose eggnog glass. It also has sound, so I'm eager to hear what clip it will be playing.

Favorite #2-  Beverly Hillbillies TV Theme

They actually started somewhat of an unofficial series of these TV sets that played the theme songs of various old television shows. Sean and I have the first two, The Twilight Zone and the Andy Griffith Show and then last year, there was no TV ornament. I was super psyched to see they brought it back this year.

Favorite #3- Vintage Toys

I love the vintage toy ornaments that Hallmark does each year. I'm super excited about this one, as I had this toy growing up. I'm pretty sure it's still somewhere at my parents' house.

Favorite #4 The Grinch

I try to get a Grinch ornament every year, but sometimes that doesn't happen. I'm loving this year's Grinch ornament and am putting it at the top of my to-buy list.

There are a TON of other cute ornaments, but I just featured a few. If you'd like to see the rest. Here's the link to Hallmark and the Keepsake Ornament page.

My husband and I started collecting the National Lampoon's ornaments a few years ago. I love this year's! My mom started buying the Grinch ornaments for me in the 90s. She passed away, so my friend now buys them for my birthday. I love my Grinch tree.

I love Hallmark ornaments. My tree is about 90% Hallmark. Love the kids ones!

These are all so cute! I'm not an ornament person, though... I have some of my favorites from growing up, and I bought some a couple years ago from a couple who blows their own glass/handpaints them for my first solo Christmas tree, but haven't added to that collection since. I like the Grinch one, though...

I've received the Gone With the Wind ornaments for years now. I actually do a seperate Christmas tree with all of my Scarlett and Rhett ornaments. LOVE it!

Oh my gosh, I love that Wally World mug!!! Like Megan, I also get the GWTW ornaments, though I started running out of room on their designated shelf and the costumes were becoming duplicates and triplicates, so it's been a few years since I've gotten one. Might see what the new release is this year though!
