Delicious Addition to Keepsake Korners
Every town needs a bakery. There is nothing like fresh delicious treats to brighten any day. Fortunately for the residence of the Keepsake Korners series, there is the Keepsake Korners Bakery.
This ornament is a building, and this time around the building is yellow. The building is obviously wood, and the yellow makes it stand out. The door on the building is red, and it is in the middle with two giant display windows on either side. In keeping with the others in this series, the displays in the window harken back to other popular series. In this case, the ornaments chosen are recent ones. In the left window, we see Santa floating in an ice cream hot air balloon, which was the 2011 ornament in the Santa’s Sweet Ride series. The right window features a display of sugar cookies arranged on a plate to look like a Christmas tree. This was the popular 2015 Season’s Treatings ornament.
Of course, the four ornaments in this continuity series itself are inspired by the popular Nostalgic Homes and Shops series. This building features light. You can put a light from a Christmas light string in the back of the ornament, which helps light up in the inside of the shop. There is a scene paint on the back of the ornament showing a helpful employee wrapping a purchase next to the cases of baked goods ready for you to buy. It adds a nice touch and separates these ornaments from the mother series.
Yes, this is essentially a building, but I find the tie ins to the old ornaments in this series to be lots of fun. The added light is also a draw for me.
Being a building, this ornament has a nice, flat base, which is a good thing because I’m thinking of creating a display of these and the rest of the Nostalgic Homes and Shops series this year. After all, I never have displayed those ornaments before. If you do want to hang the ornament, you’ll find the hook on the roof is perfect to balance them.
The four Keepsake Korners ornaments released this year have proved to be very popular, so if you are interested in the Keepsake Korners Bakery, I suggest you snag one now. Just like delicious baked goods, it is going quickly.Fans of this ornament will enjoy the official Nostalgic Homes and Shops ornaments.
