Hallmark's Tea Time Ornaments by Tracy Larsen

In January, an old college friend sent me a picture of some new Hallmark ornaments that were being planned for 2016, this time with a tea theme. Then last week, tea friend Donna Z. alerted me to the arrival of the ornaments and thoughtfully sent me a coupon via email. Since I just happened to be by a Hallmark store at the mall on Saturday, I made my first tea-themed ornament purchase of 2016, and I was so happy!

These ornaments by Tracy Larsen are the first in a five-part series, and I can't wait to collect them all! Each year's design will feature a teacup and teapot. And I don't know if this will hold true for all of them, but I was surprised to learn these ornaments are porcelain and not plastic!

When I got home with my ornament "Dreambook" from Hallmark …

I realized that perhaps I shouldn't have been so hasty about picking up my Tea Time ornaments and running. Turns out, there's also a miniature fairy with a teapot …

And a full-size Mickey and Minnie in the famous spinning teacup! So if you're into tea-themed ornaments of any sort, Hallmark has something for us all this year, I'd say!


  1. Hmmm, I think I need to visit my local Hallmark store!
