A look inside my "Beach House" bag from Hallmark...

Today, I thought I would share details of the fun gifts I recently received from Hallmark... one is a medium size tote bag with the Hallmark Channel Logo and “The Beach House” text. A very handy, trendy thing to have on the beach!

Along with the tote, I received a blue t-shirt with a turtle graphic, as worn by many of the actors and actresses, including Minka Kelly and Chad Michael Murray, in the upcoming Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, “The Beach House.” The movie will be shown simultaneously on two of Hallmark's networks, the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, on Saturday, April 28, 2018!

“The Beach House” movie script was written by Maria Nation, based upon the book, of the same name, by Mary Alice Monroe. Starring in the film are Andie MacDowell (“Groundhog Day,” “Cedar Cove,” “At Home in Mitford”), Minka Kelly (“Friday Night Lights,” “Away and Back” Hallmark Hall of Fame) and Chad Michael Murray (“A Cinderella Story,” “One Tree Hill,” “Left Behind”).

The Beach House
by Mary Alice Monroe

Please note: I have not personally read this book; however, if you are interested, I highly suggest checking out the many helpful and insightful reviews on Amazon.

I especially enjoyed this book review By TAL59GRACE, from April 13, 2018...

“Breathtaking, unforgettable. Mary Alice Monroe is a word artist. She describes the scene & people so vividly, I feel like I could reach out & touch them! I fell in love with Lovie, Cara, Brett, Toy, and the turtles!"

“The Beach House” movie storyline via Hallmark: Caretta “Cara” Rudland (Minka Kelly) thought she’d left her Southern roots and troubled family far behind, but returns to the scenic Lowcountry of her childhood summers after losing her job in Chicago. There, she reconnects with her mother Lovie (Andie MacDowell), who has been caring for her young, pregnant friend Toy (Makenzie Vega) in her charming beach house.

  2. I am so looking forward to The Beach House.
    The whole premise is intriguing.
    I have lovely memories of watching
    Hallmark Hall Of Fame movies with my family.
    It was always a special event--a Sunday night get together.
    I do have many favorites and still remember how my heart was touched by the movies.

    1. Oh yes, I always loved watching those special Hallmark Hall of Fame presentations on Sunday nights, too! That was even before the Hallmark Channel came into existence!

      Watching the Hallmark Hall of Fame movies with my family would always be such a wonderful end to the weekend. You are so right... they are often heartwarming and touching, and they bring back wonderful memories- of special times and past favorites!

      Thanks so much for sharing! Blessings, Net

  3. How totally COOL is that? And well deserved with all the PR you give Hallmark. I love your gift bag and thank you so much for sharing with us all. I am SO looking forward to this movie.
