*EXCLUSIVE* First Look at Hallmark Breaking Dawn Ornament

Early this morning I gave you a sneak peek at the Twilight Ornament that Hallmark will be offering this year. I have to say that it was definitely more of a teaser than a sneak peek. Although seeing the picture of the box probably got you just as excited as I was when the ornaments arrived yesterday. :)

The ornaments arrive at the end of June/beginning of July in preparation for our Ornament Premiere which is always the second weekend in July. For the last three years in a row, which is the number of years that Hallmark has offered a Twilight Ornament, I have been on the look out for the FedEx delivery guy!! I was super excited when I looked out the store window and saw him with a cart full of boxes with green tape!! YAY!!!! They are here I shouted. LOL

I always try to contain my excitement which is hard because Ornament Premiere is one of my favorite events that Hallmark has. Add a Twilight Ornament on top of that and you have one very excited Twilighter!!! After he unloaded the 40+ boxes the hunt for the twi-treasure began!!

Once we opened and checked in several of the boxes, I finally found it!! I was completely excited and couldn't wait to open the box to see it. I was seriously hoping that the ornament looked better than last years because there were a lot of issues with the paint, etc. Personally it was not my favorite one they have made but I bought it anyway because it was Twilight and Hallmark. :)

2011 Hallmark "Bella, Edward & Jacob" Keepsake Oranment

I was really looking forward to this years because the detail even in the picture in the Dreambook looked promising. You could see the buttons on the back and on the sleeves on Bella's Wedding Dress even in this tiny picture. 

Picture from the Dreambook

Once I had the box in my hand, I held my breath...... EEK!! What would it look like...... I gasped as I opened it and smiled!!! :) IT LOOKS GREAT!!!!! YAY!!!! FINALLY we have a great looking Twilight Ornament!!!!

I think the ornament looks exactly like the picture in the Dreambook and is as detailed as I was hoping it would be. Even in it's tiny form (4 inches high) you can see the detail the artist put into it's creation.

When you look at Bella's Wedding Dress you can see the individual buttons on the sleeve and also down the back of the dress. Ohhh the back of the dress!!! I love it!! You can see the detail in the lace and even in her hair clip. The front of the dress is also defines with the triangular sections on the side. :)

Edward also looks great! The detail in his tux shows every line, button and crease. The bow-tie, handkerchief and boutineer are also very well defined.

If you were wishing that Edward and Bella looked more like Rob and Kristen, I am sorry to say that they do not but then again they are not meant too.

I am very please with the craftsmanship of this year ornament. I will definitely be buying one, two, three....oh who know's how many!! HAHA You all know how I love to do giveaways...maybe you will be seeing one of them in July. <wink wink>

If you are interested in adding your own "Edward and Bella's Wedding" Keepsake Ornament to your Twilight Collection visit your local Gold Crown store in July. 

The ornament will be available for purchase beginning Saturday, July 14th during Hallmark's Ornament Premiere. The retail price of the ornament is $17.95. Be sure to get their early because quantities are limited and I know this will be very popular.

Tap the Twilight

It's Summertime!!! Which means it's time to TAP THE TWILIGHT!!!!

I so wished I lived in the West more specifically the Pacific Northwest so I could enjoy this Summer Ale from Deschutes Brewery called TWILIGHT

I hope my Twi-BFF Lynn from OurTwilightCorner picks up a case for us to take to Forks again for Stephenie Meyer Day in September. ;) <wink wink> 

The brew is available only during May and September in select states. Sadly Florida isn't one of them. 

That's okay... Keep it on ice Lynn! I'll be there in 82 days!

Dreaming of Casa em Paraty

I would love to plan my next dream trip/vacation to the Casa em Paraty! Wouldn't you?

Does it look familiar? It should! It's Bella and Edward's Honeymoon House outside of Paraty near Rio de Janeiro in Brazil!

There's beds for 17! Perfect for a girls getaway!!! I would love to go with some of my Twilight Sisters. I know it would be EPIC!

Also expensive...$4,000 a day with minimum of two days! That's the reason it's called a Dream Trip.

However you know what I always say...

Twilighters Dreams Do Come True!

Bill Condon receives the first Lion & Lamb Award!!

Photo from Twilight Lexicon

“The Lambie” was given to him by Twilight fan-sites on June 21st. Several fan-sites visited Bill and had a 40 minute Q & A session about Breaking Dawn. Sadly we have to wait and find out what they discovered because they can't share what they learned... I know! Sucks right?! LOL 
The plaque was awarded to Bill for all his hard work and dedication these past two years in bringing Breaking Dawn, the final chapter, to life on the big screen. He has EMBRACED the Twilight Saga and has done an amazing job of bringing the book to the my opinion. 

Photo from Twilight Lexicon

He's been thoughtful and sensitive to fans and understands the passion that we feel for these beloved characters. I absolutely loved Breaking Dawn Part 1 and other than Twilight (since it's the original) has been my favorite of all the films. After seeing the Teaser Trailer that was just realized I am SUPER EXCITED to see Part 2 in November. Just that quick 1 minute and 19 second trailer has me thinking that this film will be my favorite. We will see!!! Everything that I am seeing so far is SUPERB! 
I just wanted to say thank you to the following fan-sites for presenting Bill with this award:
Twilight Lexicon
Twilight Series Theories
Bella and
His Golden Eyes
Letters to Twilight
Team Twilight
Twilight Examiner
Twilight Guy
Twilight Facebook
Twilight Moms
Twilight Source

 I absolutely love that you did this!!!! I am so happy that HE (Bill) knows that we ALL appreciate his hard work and everything that he has done for The Saga. He truly is doing an amazing job. When I left the midnight premiere for Part 1 I walked out and said one word... PHENOMENAL!!! I am soooooo looking forward to Part 2 and everything that I have seen so far, pictures and trailers, it is looking to be even more amazing!!! I can’t wait to see it in November.

BD2 Final Battle - Who's Pictured?

I absolutely love this shot of all the vampires prepared to witness/battle in Breaking Dawn Part 2. When I first saw it I immediately started to inspect it to see who's who and where they were standing!!

I thought some of you might also be wondering and doing the same thing! I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one whose combed over this photo over and over. Twilight Lexicon our #1 Twilight Source did too!!! I won't even tell you exactly how many times I've watched the Teaser Trailer #2 today. I'll just say it was A LOT!! LOL 

Here is a list in order from left to right of all the vampires pictured:

Tanya, Kate, Garrett, Carmen, Eleazar, Emmett, Rosalie, The Romanian Coven (hidden), Zafrina, Senna, Bella, Renesmee, Edward, Amun, Kebi, Benjamin, Tia, Carlisle, Esme, Maggie, Liam, Sibohan, Randal, Charlotte, Peter & Mary.

I also love the picture of the Volturi...but as many times as I've looked at it. I am not even going to try! HAHA Not touching that one. I'll give a million dollars if you get it correct! (Not a real bet) Although if Alice told me who everyone was... I would totally bet on her. LOL

Weekend Surprise

Last weekend my hubby surprised me with an overnight trip to Sarasota spontaneously when I got home from work. We spent one night at a hotel on our favorite beach and went to a see a play at a playhouse in Downtown Sarasota. It was the perfect getaway and nice to relax even if it was just for one night. :)

As if I couldn't love him any more than I already do he did the sweetest thing. As we were driving home I spotted a twi-street! You all know how I LOVE finding these Twilight treasures...well I squealed and he asked, "Do you wanna go back and get a picture?" I, of course wanted to but didn't actually want to say, "Yes, please!" I usually do my twi-crazy things like that alone or with a friend. LOL Like I did last month when my Twi-BFF Lynn from Our Twilight Corner came down to visit me. WE WENT TWI-CRAZY FOR SURE!! haha That's a whoooollllleeee other story for another time.

So I just said say to him, "No, it's okay. I saw it. I don't need to get a picture." He knows me all to well and knew that I would be thinking about it and would remember it so the next time we came up I would be dying to get a picture of it. Sooooo he turned the car around and went back!!!! <3 

Not only did he take me away at the spurt of the moment...just because...went to a play, stayed on the beach...he took my picture at TWILIGHT PLACE which ironically was a dead end! LOL SUPER SWEET!!! 

We also passed an Edwards Drive and got a pic! LOL
Thanks Babe! You're the best! :)

Be sure to check out the Twilight in Florida album on Facebook to see the other Twilight treasures I've found in my neck of the woods.
