Disney Hallmark Ornaments – Ready, Set, Snow!

Disney Hallmark Ornaments – Ready, Set, Snow!

By Nick

Last week I shared the first 2 ornaments released in the “Ready! Set! Snow!” ornament set, which featured Mickey Mouse and Pluto.

This Donald Duck Hallmark ornament, entitled “Cool Duck Donald”, was released on September 8th, 2012.

From the box:

Cool Duck Donald

Ready! Set! Snow!

 

Donald thought that sledding
would be sweet, and he’s in luck-
gliding fast across the snow,
he looks like one cool duck!

This ornament can be connected to others in the “Ready! Set! Snow!” collection. Collect them all to create a delightful holiday display!

This ornament has a notch to connect other ornaments in the set.

“Snow Stylin’ Goofy”, was released on October 6th, 2012, is part of a set of 5 ornaments, featuring the Fab Five, titled “Ready! Set! Snow!”.

 

Snow Stylin’ Goofy

Ready! Set! Snow!

Goofy’s got some crazy moves
as he rides on the sled.
Or maybe he’s just making sure
his hat stays on his head!

The Minnie Mouse Hallmark ornament, titled “Merry Mittens Minnie”, was released on November 2nd, 2012, and is the final piece in the set.

From the box:

Merry Mittens Minnie

Ready! Set! Snow!

Minnie’s always ready
for a sled ride in the snow.
She warms her hands with cozy mittens-
red to match her bow!

And here is the whole set together!

Disney Hallmark Ornaments – Downhill Dashin’

If you haven’t started your holiday decorating yet, it will soon be time!  We may have tons of Disney decorations at our house, but we don’t have a fraction of what Nick and Barbie use to deck their halls.  Seriously, their Disney Christmas collection is amazing!  This week and next we get to see one of my favorite ornament sets from their holiday treasures.  Enjoy!

Disney Hallmark Ornaments – Downhill Dashin’

By Nick

These 2 Disney ornaments were released by Hallmark in 2012

They are part of a set of ornaments featuring the Fab Five, titled “Ready! Set! Snow!”,  that were released from their premiere weekend in July, through November 2nd.

First up we have Downhill-Dashin’ Mickey. I am not exactly sure what happened to the box, but it got crushed somehow!

This ornament has a notch to connect other ornaments in the set.

From the box:

Downhill-Dashin’ Mickey

Ready! Set! Snow!

Mickey loves to race the sled
through snow and ice and slush.
And when he wants more speed,
he simply hollers, “Pluto, mush!”

This ornament can be connected to others in the “Ready! Set! Snow!” collection. Collect them all to create a delightful holiday display!

Next up, we have Sled-Pullin’ Pluto.
A string, er, rope is attached, for Mickey to grab, while Pluto does the heavy lifting!

From the box:

Sled-Pullin’ Pluto

Ready! Set! Snow!

Sledding is always fun to do
with Pluto for a guide-
when Mickey and the gang climb on,
he’ll take them for a ride!

Next Saturday, we’ll take a look at the rest of the set.

“Sewing For Cinderelly” Disney Ornament

It’s finally Saturday!  Can you believe it’s almost Christmas?  I don’t know about your house, but there’s a lot of last minute holiday prep going on at ours!  Our weather has been unseasonably warm lately & made it seem as if Christmas was way in the future – finally a cold snap just in time!  If you’ve visitied here before you may have noticed I have a thing for Disney Christmas decorations.  Ornaments are my favorite Disney souvenirs and my 9-foot tree displays more than 20 years-worth of collecting them (and making a few of my own).  I love seeing Nick post about his Disney ornaments at Disney Musings Blog and Facebook page – His collection is completely different than mine!  Today’s little treasure is just precious and if I ever come across one of these for sale, I would love to add it to my own tree.

“Sewing For Cinderelly” Disney Ornament

By: Nick

I bought this “Limited Quantity” ornament titled “Sewing For Cinderelly” in July, 2013 during the Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Premiere Weekend.

Gus and Jaq are maybe my favorite part of Cinderella.

Jaq.

I see more than a bit of myself in Gus Gus!

They have helped create a masterpiece for Cinderella.

New Disney Ornaments!

Christmas-Disney-Ornaments-WrappedMaybe it’s been mentioned a time or two, but my favorite Disney collectibles have always been Christmas ornaments.  As souvenirs, I think they’re perfect, so I always make time to carefully select one or two (okay, sometimes more) on every Disney vacation.  This year presented two great opportunities – Walt Disney World in February and cruising on the Disney Magic in Norway in June.

New Disney Ornaments!

When we get home from a Disney trip, I have a tradition of sorts – I put my new ornaments in a drawer with our Disney pin collection so I’ll know right where to find them when it’s time to decorate our Christmas tree.  While the tree hasn’t yet gone up, I pulled my 2015 ornament stash out this evening to inspect our newest treasures and here’s what I found…Christmas-Ornament-Disney-2015

Clearly I didn’t have much time to shop in February!  I selected only three new additions to the collection from Disney’s Days of Christmas in Disney Springs.  The first was to commemorate the year – I love how Mickey’s wearing his sorcerer hat and holding up his Mickey ice cream bar.  I’m sure it was that Mickey bar that sold me on that ornament!  Christmas-Oswald-OrnamentThe second ornament was my favorite of the three – Oswald holding a wreath.  We’re big Oswald fans at our house.  Look at his little face…Isn’t he adorable?  Christmas-Hitchhiking-Ghosts-OrnamentFinally, to go with the Haunted Mansion singing bust ornament set I bought in 2014, I added the Hitchhiking Ghosts.  They’re awesome!

There are ornaments available for purchase aboard Disney cruise ships.  I know this because I’ve bought some in the past.  This cruise, though, I opted for souvenirs from Norway.  Bergen, Norway, to be precise.  When we took our walking tour of the city, our guide mentioned there was a Christmas store conveniently located between the end of the tour and our ship.  Easy, convenient, and irresistible!Christmas-shop-Bergen-Norway

Megan and I each decided Norwegian flag ornaments would be perfect mementos.  Christmas-Ornament-Norwegian-FlagI also found a tiny glass frog prince I couldn’t pass up.  Christmas-Frog-Prince-Ornament-from-NorwayFinally, we purchased a non-ornament.  We bought this funny little figurine.  Partial to pigs, this little pair was impossible to leave behind -so, while not Disney, they came home with us anyway.Christmas-Pig-Norway

Now, assembling the 9-foot tree, fluffing all the branches, making sure the lights are all on, and adding the many layers of decorations is going to be quite the project (as usual)!  I’m motivated, though, to get going, so our newest ornaments can find their place as part of our Disney Christmas collection.
