Do I Love This Ornament?  Silly Goose, Of Course I Do!

We are now half way through Hallmark’s latest 12 Days of Christmas series, and it is very safe to say that it is my favorite Hallmark series.  Each piece is so unique and beautiful they are a feast for the eyes.  Six Geese-a-Laying is this year’s edition, and it is another winner.

This year’s ornament is done up in blues and purples.  Oh, the main body is white, but the head is blue with a white stripe as is the tail.  The body fades to a lavender by the tail section, and the wings are purple.  One again, we’ve got writing on the outer wings, with one side saying, “Six Geese-a-Laying” and the wing on the backside of the ornament giving the beginning of the verse.  The inner layer of the wings has musical notes on it.  The bottom of the bird is sitting in a ring of golden garland to represent the nest.  And the dangle?  It’s an egg, of course, with 6 written on it in numbers and letters.

Obviously, this isn’t a traditional looking bird, but I’m okay with that because the piece looks so beautiful.  Plus, based on the other ornaments in the series, we already knew to expect something new and different.  The colors work so well together and definitely make the ornament stand out.  Combine it with the others in the series, and you’ve got a colorful and beautiful collection that I can stare at for a long time.

With an egg dangling from the goose, this ornament must be hung.  Fortunately, you’ll find when you do hang her that she looks straight.  The series marker, a six on in a Christmas tree, is hidden on her backside.

I’m so thrilled I started this series because each new piece is wonderful.  If you’ve been collecting them all along, you’ll be happy to add Six Geese-a-Laying to your ornament collection.

If you've missed this great series, here are the rest of the 12 Days of Christmas series.
