None for me, but I think I'm going to go back to get the Cantina Band, pg 77, even though I don't collect Star Wars.

Epically awesome ornament! Nice choice for a spur of the moment purchase.

Believe me, if it weren't so expensive, I would have bought it, too. I love that ornament and the music.

Me too! Not something I typically collect, but I do love this ornament.

I didn't buy anything on the spur of the moment, but I was temped to buy the Star Trek "scene" ornament. Over the last few years I've come to love that particular episode and I thought the Horta looked much better in person then it did in photographs.

I bought it. It's a nice ornament but it's difficult to keep the Horta from looking like a big blob. I wish they would have made some of the darker parts of the Horta a little darker to make the lighter parts pop a little more. When you're colorblind, like me, the colors look a little bland.

Sweet Skull. It was the last one and is better in person. Have my name down for another for my daughter when the next shipment arrives.

I love the color on the Sweet Skull....it would really "pop" on a black tree for Halloween. laugh Do you know what kind of material the white is? Thanks!

It is very cute....good choice! smile

It's not just you. That is part of the problem with ornament-the majority of the Horta is pink, when it should be brown with orangey-yellow "veins" as seen below:

I hadn't planned on getting A Pony for Christmas as I don't collect this series. I really like the cowboy and the colors.

I put back Santa's Sweet Ride. Looks like a very cheap ornament.

My two unplanned ornaments were the Limited Who You Callin' "Chicken?" and All Eyes on Belle. I already have one of Foghorn Leghorn but this one was so well done I had to get it. And when I saw Belle, I couldn't resist...looks much better in person than in the photo!! I also love The Daring Princess but will wait until it is time to pick up another Disney monthly ornament.

I am really excited for the Disney monthly ornaments! I got all the Peanuts ones last year, and was happy to see that I would be able to collect monthly again....especially with Disney! Did they do any other monthly series before this?

Not with Keepsakes, but they did a lot of them with Merry Miniatures.

Now that they've done Disney, will they continue? And if they do, what will they choose? Maybe Hallmark classics? Like one month have Mary's Angels, another Kris' Penguins, another Snowball/Tuxedo, Frosty, etc.

Santa's Sweet Ride is an exact copy of a can-am race car. And there isn't much to these. Also, I thought the cookie for the spoiler was cute. It looked good enough to eat!

My husband collects most of the Star Trek ornaments. (all the ships and characters). This years ship looks so...cheap to me. I was excited to see it was going to be black, but when I saw it I was very disappointed. I haven't picked it up yet. I will still have to get it for my husband. I'm going to wait and see if Kohl's will carry it this year. I have been buying the ship for a few years with my 30% discount that I get most often. The Dreambook says it is a GC. I have never noticed that before. What do others think of the ship and the book saying it is a GC?

I came home with the white roller skates after seeing them in person. Those pink wheels and purple pom poms brought back a lot of good memories.

We could go to the skating rink on Saturday mornings at 10am to noon for 50 cents. I eventually even learned how to skate backwards. smile

from a previous post: I picked up Strolling in the Snow by Patricia Andrews. Loved the gentle look of the sculpt and the gold and cream tones are just beautiful.

I agree. The understated cream colors are stunning on this ornament.
