"Adding the Final Touch," a scene featuring Snowball and Tuxedo, will be available at Ornament Debut beginning October 11, 2008.

Holiday Open House, beginning November 8, 2008, will bring "Christmas on Main Street." This ornament will feature a main street style theme of the Nostalgic Houses and Shops series.

The fifth and final ornament in this collection will be available beginning November 21, 2008. "Having a (Snow) Ball" will feature those lovable penguins.

This ornament celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Nostalgic Houses and Shops series. I think this one will be in high demand.
