The blustery cold weather is upon us which can mean only one thing…it’s almost Christmas!
This week my family and I broke out the holly, tinsel, ornaments and decor and started decorating. After this past week we needed a little cheering up and there is no better way to cheer up then to decorate for one of my favorite Holidays.
Ever since my husband and I were married we have made it a tradition to go out and purchase a few elegant glass ornaments for our Christmas tree. We love glass ornaments because of their delicacy and beauty. We plan to pass these ornaments down to our children so they can enjoy them with their own families one day.
This year we turned to Hallmark and their Heritage Ornament Collection for our ornaments. I love the variety, quality and beauty of each Hallmark Heritage Ornament. Every ornament is hand blown and crafted by artisans in Poland. The details on each ornament are exquisite.
The first ornament we selected was the ‘Golden Patterns Glass Ball Ornament‘. This piece is extremely delicate and hand-painted with exquisite detail. The ornament displays textural embellishments to add glitter and luster to any Christmas tree. I love how the gold shimmers in the light and how intricate the patterns are.
The second ornament we selected was the ‘Decorative Santa Blown Glass Ornament.’ This antiqued Santa is sparkly and shiny. I love his little belt, decorative outfit and glittered mittens.
The third and final ornament is ‘Winters Owl Blown Glass Ornament.’ Ever since our son was born we have called him a little owl since he has such big eyes. When I saw this ornament I HAD to have it. Not only does it remind me of our son but it is also beautiful. The owl is perched on a pine cone while it looks at you with its bright eyes and glittered wings.
The story of each Hallmark ornament’s inspiration and creative process is on its tags. Any of the ornaments would make lovely gifts–each one is packaged in a gold-trimmed box, carefully nestled in shredded paper. The ornaments are available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores or online.
Hallmark would like to giveaway a Decorative Santa ornament from their Heritage Collection to one lucky reader!
