THE GREAT OUTDOORS

Welcome to my first post. Have I bitten off more then I can chew ~ probably. Especially if I make the pictures all cute with boarders! So maybe this first post will the only SPECIAL one. I have been collecting ornaments for at least 38 years now. It is one of my greatest pleasures. I hope you enjoy seeing them. Between now and Christmas I will be posting the newest ones, the ones I purchased this year which may still be available for you to buy.

It looks like somebody is getting ready for Christmas. Don't feel bad while in Hobby Lobby today they are ready. Trees lined the little foyer area that you go through before going in the actual store.

This is a lovely idea! I'm going to try to have a tree for my baby this year, in her memory. I've been ordering some vintage baby ornaments from Ebay. They are mostly Hallmark and are lovely! I could spend my whole retirement check in the Hallmark store!

YIKES! let me get the kids into school first? :p hahah I can't believe the count down has started. Merry Christmas. :p

LV said...

What wonderful ornaments. I give up on doing much decorating at my place. When it is just one, I can see no need. These will make someone's tree look very nice. Thanks for your visit to my place.

Those are so cute! You've reminded me that I'm so very glad I shoved every empty space in my car full of ornaments that I have collected throughout the years. I'm not ready for Christmas at this point but knowing that they are here are special to me. Love the blog idea.

Laura said...

Love it! What a great idea too!!!

Michelle @ Flying Giggles said...

I love the grilling ornament, they are all great thought.

Noelle said...

What a fantastic idea for a blog, and what a lovely tree! This is really inspirational...too bad I'm way too lazy to ever take on a project like this :) I'm really looking forward to following along with your tree, though!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Great idea Debby! I should do this. I, like you, would never have any trouble finding something to blog about on this blog! That little camper is just the cutest thing! Love your blog background. OOOO, I hope you haven't made me REALLY want to set up another blog, because I barely have time for the blog I have. laurie

blueviolet said...

You really made the blog design cute! I love your ornaments and I'm a huge Hallmark fan too!

Kathy said...

Hi, I just hopped over here from your Random Dozen post. OMG, you are a girl after my own heart! I LOVE Christmas ornaments, and I, too, have been collecting for over 38 years! I don't collect Hallmark exclusively, though. I have a collection of all kinds of ornaments from over the years.

Your tree looks similar to mine, in the amount of decorations that you have on it...I LOVE a fully decorated tree!

I don't just do a Christmas tree though, I have a tree up for every month of the year, with decorations pertaining to that month. Yes, I love ornaments and decorations...and I'll be following to see your decorations as you feature them.

Deborah Ann said...

Those are all precious, but my favorite is the camper! Totally, totally cool!

Love your new seasonal blog!

Great ornaments ... isn't that camper the cutest little thing? When Hubby and I got married, we collected our first ornament on our honeymoon in Cancun. Everywhere we've traveled for 25 years, we've bought one so putting up our tree is a walk down memory lane for us.

Laura said...

OH MY GOSH!! I HAVE TO GET THAT GRILL ONE FOR MY HUBBY! I love Halmark ornaments too. I get each person in my family one each year! That grilling one is perfect since I got Jeff his new grill this year! You saved me a little time in looking (though I do love to look at the ornaments!)
Hugs-

Sonya said...

You have so many fun ornaments!

Dysfunctional Mom said...

I LOVE that camper ornament! SO cute!

Love Bears All Things said...

Debby, I enjoyed seeing your ornaments, especially the grilling one. I have also collected ornaments for a long time. I was a charter member of the collectors club at Hallmark and only quit renewing last year. I finally gave a few of mine away to my sister and niece as I have more than will go on two trees and a wreath. I collect other ornaments besides Hallmark, I like homemade ones and ones from special people. Maybe I'll share some in December.
