Warning, there's music!

Every year, Hallmark or some other company produces a holiday ornament that can be used in miniature settings. Today I stumbled across this new, very iconic 1960's television set ornament at It lights up and plays music.*

*WARNING: the website plays the Beverly Hillbillies' theme song, LOUDLY, (so don't visit the site without turning down the volume on your iPad first because you do not want to be embarrassed when everyone turns and gawks at you. Of course, this would never happen to me.)

Wishing you only good things, Neen


  1. So cute. I'll have to keep an eye out for scale ornaments now. Thanks for the tip! (And for the music warning. :))

    1. Ah yes, the loud, very loud music, hmm...., so embarrassing :@). Scale ornaments are great, past years have brought CB2 modern chairs, miniature flat screen televisions etc. I love the character ornaments, so far I have a set of one inch scale Three Stooges and two sets of Roaring 20's flappers. All of which have been invited to a Holiday Party that will take place on this blog. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. Neen,
    What a wonderful find. I will be showing my age, and maybe my lack of refinement, but I
    loved the Beverly Hillbillies back then, and I still do. Such wonderful characters.
    And now the whole idea of buying a "colonial" or "french provincial" cabinet with a TV
    in it seems bizarre!

    1. Philip, thank you for visiting my blog! It is funny how what seems to be the height of fashion one year, (i.e., french provincial t.v. cabinets), later on seems puzzling. Comedy, however, never goes out of fashion. So we can still laugh at 1920s keystone cops, and the 1960s Clampett family. My personal favorite from the 60s is The Jetsons, I love the futuristic, and optimistic, scenes and storylines!
      Cheers, Neen

  3. I saw this at Hallmark just yesterday and almost bought it. But then I remembered that the ornaments go on sale after Christmas. I wonder if I should wait that long ....
    I may be cheap but I don't want to miss out on this. Hmmm ...

  4. I am tempted as well. I bought several similar television sets on eBay that I believe Hallmark issued as ornaments in the 80s or 90s. One was "the Twilight Zone," one was "Get Smart," and the last was "the Brady Bunch." They all light up and play the theme music. None of them cost more than ten dollars. I have used one in a gift room box I am making for a friend, she loves old television shows. I think ornaments are fun and one of the great things about this time of year!
