2009 Hallmark Valentine

Expressions from Hallmark. Very, very cute! There were three Hallmark Valentine's Day cards last year so there could possibly be more than one for this year. I antcipate a lot of Hallmark greeting cards this year to celebrate the 70th anniversary. Thanks to Robyn Bodine!!

Glinda/Wicked Witch Christmas Stocking

I apologize for the lateness of this post, but it was impossible to get information out of Kurt Adler. If you do a Wizard of Oz Stocking search on eBay you can see a photo. The front has Glinda against a lavender background with silver stars and it says 'Are you a good witch' while the Wicked Witch is on the reverse against a darker purple background with silhouettes of her flying on her broomstick and winged monkeys and the famous quote finishes 'or a bad witch?' I'm told it's really beautiful in person. Right now it is exclusive to F.Y.E. stores, but there is a chance it could be in Adler's main line next year. Check the F.Y.E. website for store locations:
The stocking retails for $14.99

Thanks to the Oz-some Jennifer Kolanowski for tracking this down!
