Miniature Monday: Christmas Ornaments from December 2013

Today, I'm sharing my two favorite Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments from this past Christmas season.

The first brought back memories of my 17 year old when he was a baby.  We purchased a full sized Little Tikes Cozy Coupe for him at a yard sale for $2.  He used it, my nephews and nieces used it, and my youngest who is now 11 used it.  We passed it on to our next door neighbor's little girl and it went to a new home last year at the yard sale.  Talk about a great return on my investment.  The miniature version of the coupe is the perfect 1/12th scale.



The second is a pink kitchenette.  It's the perfect scale as a toy kitchenette in the dollhouse.  The doors open and the stove can light.  I had one of these when I was a child.  My Mother had ordered it from the Spiegel's catalog (I'm so old!) complete with pots and pans.  I loved that little kitchenette.


I hope that you guys remembered to check the ornaments this past holiday seasons for special purchases of your own.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. That little coupe is so cute. Hallmark Keepsake have some great ornaments. My husband and I (and now also our daughter) choose a dated Keepsake ornament for our tree ever since our first Christmas together in 1998 so we now have 16 that go on our tree each year. We try to chose something that reminds us of our year.

  10. Hi Ketsia! I also love the Hallmark keepsake ornaments and these are good ones! The little kitchenette is priceless but the toy car is Absolutely Wonderful for you, as it evokes so many tender memories and has given you and your children so much pleasure for sooooo long. I hope that you will be able to put it to good use in one of your mini scenes. What a great find and thanks for sharing it!
