TV Movie Highlights of the Week - including Rom-Com “Together Forever Tea,” Christmas Classics, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” and more! #Hallmarkies #POstables SEE HERE:

Happy Wednesday, friends! Typically the movie reminders are mainly on the weekend here at It's a Wonderful Movie (except Christmas, of course!), but there are several notable movies airing this week on TV - I thought you all might enjoy watching now or DVR-ing (is that a word?) for the weekend!


Wednesday, August 4, 2021:

The first movie is one that was originally available through Hallmark's streaming service Hallmark Movies Now. Then it aired twice, I believe, on Hallmark Drama, and now it is airing for the first time on the Hallmark Channel...

Storyline via Hallmark: When a series of wedding-planning setbacks raises the bride’s doubts, Maid of Honor Meg and Best Man Tyler put their old differences aside to restore the couple’s faith in love with a walk down memory lane.

Note: I have not viewed this movie, yet, but I have heard from various sources that it is family friendly.

In prep for the all new "Hannah Swensen Mystery" movie airing this weekend - Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is airing TWO Alison Sweeney Christmas movies this week, the first one being...

Storyline: When a murder takes place at the local Christmas tree carnival, it seems there are quite a few suspects. With the twelve days of Christmas ticking away, Hannah's running out of time to nab a murderous Scrooge.

There's a repeat showing of "Love, For Real" on Thursday night. I haven't viewed this one, yet. Have any of you? Plus, I haven't really heard if it was good or bad; so... if you've seen it, I would love to hear your thoughts in comments below.

Enjoy Christmas Fridays on the Hallmark Channel with Autumn Reeser and Jesse Metcalfe in...

There, he meets Julie, an astronomy teacher who’s always looked to the stars for hope. As the Christmas spirit washes over him — and he begins falling for Julie — the once self-centered Nick discovers the joy of helping others. When he learns that Julie and the tree lot owner are facing hard times, Nick strives to end their troubles in time for them all to share a Christmas under the stars.

It's an all new rom-com movie premiere on BYU...

Storyline: Marketing whiz Lara Thompson is living a fast-paced life in the big city when she’s summoned to the sleepy town of Kissing Falls to settle the affairs of her late Aunt Vivienne who owned a tea shop. Lara originally plans to sell the shop quickly, but switches course to fulfill her aunt’s last wish – to have one of her teas awarded by the prestigious International Council of Tea Sommeliers. With the help of handsome local flower expert Matt, Lara sets out to recreate a long lost “love potion” tea. One problem – the tea’s secret ingredient is the extinct Kissing Falls rose. As Lara and Matt work together, she finds herself not only falling for Matt but for the town itself.

Friday, August 6, 2021
at 1pm/12c. on BYU


Friday, August 6, 2021:

It's a two-part patriotic "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" movie showing on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries with...


SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED: TRUTH BE TOLD storyline: The POstables are on a mission to deliver a soldier's letter from Afghanistan to a teenager who's being relentlessly bullied, while Oliver's estranged father surprises him with news that shakes him to his core.

SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED: THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM storyline: The POstables work against the clock decoding a letter to rescue a soldier in Afghanistan and reunite her with her family, while Rita competes for the National Miss Special Delivery title in Washington, D.C.

This series is truly my favorite of everything that airs re-occurring on Hallmark. As I've mentioned before, I like the stories of faith and how Oliver's Divine-Delivery theory is incorporated into each story. SSD is beautiful, powerful, puzzling, and heartwarming! I highly recommend the entire SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED series, and I'm thrilled the cast is currently filming Movie #11!

"High Flying Romance" starring: Jessica Lowndes and Christopher Russell - to air on the Hallmark Channel! SEE HERE:

High Flying Romance

Also Known As: Kite Festival of Love

Network: Hallmark Channel

Original Air Date: September 6, 2021 at 9pm/8c.

*NOTE: This premiere is on a MONDAY!!!

"High Flying Romance" is currently new (August, 2021) to Hallmark Movies Now (Hallmark's streaming service). Hallmark's web-site is now showing an air date for this family-friendly movie on the Hallmark Channel in September. I have watched this movie - so look for my review below and if you've seen this, too, and you would like to share a review, please do so in comments below.

Starring: Jessica Lowndes and Christopher Russell

Storyline: Hannah falls for more than teaching music when woodworker Gavin and his nine-year-old daughter, Parker, move back to town after his wife’s passing. With a shared interest in the upcoming kite festival, Hannah becomes smitten with Gavin. But with an ex-girlfriend, Katie, who makes it clear she no longer wants to be the ex, Hannah doesn’t know what Gavin’s true feelings are for her, or who he’ll choose to be with.


"High Flying Romance - This is such a lighthearted, pleasant, family-friendly movie. When widower Gavin McQueen (Christopher Russell, "Chasing Waterfalls") returns to his hometown with his young daughter, Parker (AmΓ©lie Will Wolf), he shares time with his parents and friends, including an old, clingy girlfriend, Katie Longhorn (portrayed by Donna Benedicto). (In fact, Donna also plays the same sort of role opposite of Christopher Russell in "Love in the Forecast.") In addition to the old girlfriend, Gavin also catches up with another friend from his youth, Hannah Adams (Jessica Lowndes), who teaches Gavin's daughter, Parker, how to play the piano. Jessica’s piano playing and singing is quite beautiful in the movie. I also loved that Hannah's best friend was played by the always expressive actress, Lisa Durupt (the sister from "Murder She Baked")! She is great at giving relationship advice to her friend. It’s obvious to everyone, as Hannah befriends the young girl, a connection between Hannah and Gavin is growing, as well. There’s also a traditional kite festival that everyone in the small town seems to be preparing for, children and adults. One moment that I thought was especially nice in the movie was one night when Gavin tucked his daughter into bed and she said her prayers, “Now I lay me down to sleep...” That was such a heartwarming, precious moment. Hopefully, this scene and the ones with the bicycle ride and kites flying will bring to mind wonderful memories for you, as it did for me. Overall, this movie is predictable, at times, but I enjoyed it being simple and sweet. This is an ideal watch for the whole family!" ~Net

"I saw a little of this one on Youtube too. Basically like any other. Interesting they are just sticking it in now." ~Misty

A little *Jen Lilley* Fashion from her Hallmark Channel *Summer Nights* Movie: "A Little Daytime Drama" --- See Here:

Actress Jen Lilley is well known from her Hallmark movies "USS Christmas," "Eat, Play, Love," "Harvest Love" and more! Jen's newest Hallmark Channel movie "A Little Daytime Drama," with actor Ryan Paevey ("A Timeless Christmas"), is based around a daytime soap opera. Of course, one of the key aspects of a soap star is great style and Jen Lilley definitely has that down - in spades!

So... we are going to take a look at a few of Jen Lilley's designer fashions from this new Hallmark movie and some look-alike pieces, too!

First, this stunning bright pink dress makes quite the statement on the lovely Jen Lilley...

This next movie suggestion is not a new premiere; however, I missed sharing the original premiere date with you all back in April, so now that there are two encore showings coming up, I thought I would share these dates/times - in hopes that you might be able to catch one of them!

See the encore airing of...

Storyline: The owner of a quaint New Zealand yarn shop, Sophie Dale, gets her world flipped upside down after learning her top supplier of yarn, King Farms, is stopping production. Much to her surprise, the charming yet stuck-in-his-ways Samuel King has traveled all the way from New York to audit the business model of the farm. Desperate to keep her shop going, Sophie convinces Samuel to give her two weeks to learn the ropes of yarn spinning and raise enough money to buy the mill herself. With Samuel’s help, Sophie comes up with a fundraising plan to host a “knit-off” and auction at the local makers market. However, when the two weeks come to an end Sophie finds herself at the crossroads of business and romance. Could she have misinterpreted Samuels growing romantic interest in her as just business all along?

Sunday, August 1, 2021

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend as we transition from July to August. It's been so hot here in the Midwest lately with high, sultry, tropical humidity. Being outdoors, therefore, has been less than enjoyable. This weekend, however, we are expecting milder temps and lower humidity, so I'm looking forward to enjoying some comfortable weather and outdoor activities. Hope your weather is pleasant, too!

As I mentioned above, it's going to be hard to say goodbye to Christmas in July on Saturday, but I'm hopeful we'll have many wonderful Christmas movies to look forward to this upcoming holiday season.

Please Note: I have not pre-screened the new movies above. If you'd like to share a review after the movies air, please share in comments. Thank you!

Blessings to you all, Net

The Parable of the Lost Sheep

10 “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven. 11 For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.

12 “What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying? 13 And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray. 14 Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.

~Matthew 18:10-14
