A Few of Our Favorite Ornaments – Cottleville edition

Keepsake Ornament Premiere is this weekend and we have been busy getting ready for the event! The temperatures may be rising outside but inside our front wall is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

All the Keepsake ornaments are beautiful! But Dee, from our staff, thinks everyone needs to come in and see the bright colors of the ornaments in person. She doesn’t think the Dreambook accurately depicts the colors & fun of the Keepsake ornaments.

We wanted to share a few of our Cottleville staff’s favorite ornaments.

ornament 15.cott.teriTeri’s favorite ornament is “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas!” She’s collected all of these and just thinking about this ornament will get her started humming the song!

ornament 15.cott.amanda“In The Great Green Room” is Amanda’s favorite ornament.  And you’ll recognize this scene from the famous children’s book, “Good Night Moon”. Amanda has three children and remembers countless nights rocking them and reading this book. It brings back memories of tiny little faces watching her read this classic story.

ornament 15.cott.maggieMaggie’s favorite ornament is the “Sweet Sisters” ornament. Maggie thinks it’s too cute & she loves her sister! She thinks it would make a great gift to show her sister how much she cares for her!

ornament 15.cott.haleighHaleigh chose “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” as her favorite ornament this year. She thinks this ornament is funny because her stepmom loves 80’s music and is always feeding squirrels in their backyard. There are six girls in her family and they all just want to have fun!

ornament 15.cott.deeDee’s favorite ornament is “Once Upon a Christmas”.  This is the fifth ornament in this series. Dee thinks having this ornament hanging on her tree with Santa talking about his bag full of toys would be a delight for all her grandchildren to hear.

ornament 15.cott.brianna“Ariel’s Thingamabobs” is Bri’s favorite Keepsake ornament. Ariel is Bri’s favorite princess and she loves the song “Part of Your World.” She claims she sings it just like Ariel. So the next time you’re in the store, ask Bri to sing you a couple of lines from the song!

ornament 15.cott.cathyCathy’s favorite ornament is “C-3P0 & R2-D2”. It reminds Cathy of taking her kids to see the first Star Wars movie. She remembers watching their faces in the movie theater as they watched the movie on the big screen especially when they saw Darth Vader – which also happens to be Cathy’s second favorite ornament.

ornament 15.cott.jessicaJessica loves the ornament “Ralphie Cleans Up!”. When Jessica was looking through the Dreambook she stumbled across this ornament and it made her laugh. Her Mom used to give Jessica and her sister soap when they would smart off! She says that now, thankfully, they don’t get soap anymore!

ornament 15.cott.emilyEmily’s favorite ornament is “Santa Yoga”. She can just imagine Santa enjoying some Yoga to unwind from the hectic Christmas season! She thinks this would be a fun ornament for any Christmas tree!

ornament 15.cott.amy“A Day at the Beach” is Amy’s favorite Keepsake ornament. Amy thinks the glass jar with the cork lid looks so beachy and fun. The inscription on the bottle, “My Heart is at the Beach”, describes Amy perfectly so it would be the perfect addition to her family’s Christmas tree.
