Add me to the list as to wanting more clip-ons. I find that using flat bottomed ornaments are also a good way to fill in those spots.

I have Gentle Dreamers.

I also like clip-ons. I just recently acquired two clip-ons, Arthur and DW and Gift For Raggedy Ann.

http://www.hookedonornaments.com/2002-Arthur-and-DW_p_6135.html

http://www.hookedonornaments.com/2003-Gift-for-Raggedy-Ann_p_6472.html

I like them both.

I'm in the process of collecting the Chris Mouse series. I was surprised to learn here that three in the series are clip-ons. That was a happy surprise. And Treetop Trio is adorable.

I too have the Gentle Dreamers and love it. (bet Nicki will have a run on people ordering these for all the interest being shown in it now-LOL)

Here are some more of my favorite clip-ons I have...

1987 Chocolate Chipmunk - on a chocolate chip cookie
1988 Sweet Star - Chipmunk on a star cookie eating a cherry
1992 Holiday Tea Time - 2 mice with tea bag and tea cup
2003 Mother & Daughter - Tray w/cocoa & cookies
2001 A Perfect Blend - Porcelain cup of hot chocolate

But I think my all-time favorite is the
2001 Sharing Santa's Snacks - Mouse on plate of cookies (regular & colorway version). He just looks so plump sitting there eating the cookies.

Also, just a little hint to help if the branch bows down with the clip on - take the branch and bend it or double it back. This gives a more sturdy area to clip to. OR ... if you don't want to put them on a branch, I take a tissue and fold it until it compensates for the clip space opening so it sits upright and then cut the tissue to size. Then just use some poster putty and dap it where you want it displayed. I do both of these and have no problems.

I guess that I just never understood the clip on's but now I am getting interested in them after reading all your ideas.

Thanks Terri for your additions. Am enjoying looking at the clip-on ornaments that you and others have listed here. Am particularly tickled by Sharing Santa's Snacks, 2001. That mouse isn't so little anymore!

http://www.hookedonornaments.com/2001-Sharing-Santas-Snacks_p_5974.html

And Holiday Teatime is another cute clip-on...

http://www.hookedonornaments.com/1992-Holiday-Teatime_p_2721.html

I think it would be fun to do a Chris Mouse theme tree with other mouse ornaments mixed in!

Hi Marie,
I clicked on the link you posted here, but it put up a message that said, "Your session has expired. Please start a new session". I clicked on the "OK" button, but all it did was take me to the home page for that website.

I love the clip-on ornaments too. My tree has very sturdy branches so I often use a hook to go from one side of an ornament, under the tree branch and hook it on the other side of the ornament to secure it. This works best with basket type ornaments or any ornament that has a place to "hook" on both sides.

Those are so cute. I used to have both of them and then I gave them to the kids. Wish now that I had kept teh Arthur & DW for my kitchen tree.

I posted Halloween and pumpkin pics last year that Diana and others were able to see and I don't understand why it doesn't work this time. So frustrating Grrrrh!.

Maybe Lisa can have better luck.

Lisa thanks for posting the picture. As you can see from my icon you are my angel.

I decided I don't like feeling stupid so I went back to take another shot at this on the tips and tricks forum and realised what I was doing wrong right away. Grrrrh.

I have been up all night d/t a texas hold'em game going in my kitchen until 7:30 this morning, so I am going to blame it on that.

I was clicking the 3rd (image) icon instead of the 1st (link) icon. As soon as I saw that I tried it and it worked.

Will try it one last time. Here goes nothing. Everything is crossed.
