Are YOU READY for CHRISTMAS MOVIES on HALLMARK? Join Candace Cameron Bure and "Journey Back to Christmas" on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries - TODAY!!!

The day we have been waiting and longing for is finally here! This is the place to be... as Gold Crown Christmas movies begin today, yes TODAY!... on  Hallmark Movies & Mysteries!

Journey Back to Christmas...
As Hallmark transitions from June to Christmas in July, we succumb to the realization of how quickly this year has already swiftly gone by. It's like taking a trip and you've reached that middle point, you've come too far to turn back, and yet there's still a ways to go. In the meantime, you feel satisfied that you have succesfully arrived at this important milestone, halfway, and decide instead of looking at the miles ahead to your destination point, to stop right here for awhile, refuel, and enjoy the journey!

When Christmas in June/July begins, we not only journey back to watching Christmas movies, which is reserved on TV for these special times of year, but there is another journey our hearts travel to, whether by reflex or instinctual, a predictable reaction. As we absorb each festive movie, there's also a reflection of Christmases past, our own journey back to Christmas. Various familiar storylines or even simple Holiday decorations can vividly bring to our minds here in the present - cherished memories from Christmases past.

May this crossroad bring to your journey a time of relaxation, rest, reflection, and refueling of your heart and Christmas spirit!

For me personally, Christmas is much more than all the glitter, gifts, and lights, and trust me, I love all those things, too! But, my true joy... is my great happiness in knowing the Savior who was born that first Christmas Day, Jesus Christ, that truly gives meaning to the journey of life! Whenever I reach a crossroad, I look to the One who gave me everlasting life on the Cross. If you would like to know more about the Christmas story, please read here.

Today's Christmas movie line-up begins at 5pm/4c., and it is filled with many wonderful Holiday movies you are sure to enjoy!

Christmas Movies - Friday June 29, 2018:

Debbie Macomber's Dashing Through the Snow ... HMM ... 5 PM

My thoughts on New Freeform 25 Days of Christmas Movie ‘No Sleep ‘Til Christmas’

image: Freeform

For those of you who visit here often, you know me, I'm always game for a new Christmas movie! It can be silly, sweet, romantic, heartwarming... as long as it is family-friendly, contains good morals and has an uplifting, positive story... I'm all in!

Well, once again, I must share that after reading a synopsis of Freeform's upcoming Christmas movie offering, I have decided I will not be tuning in.

The title of this new Freeform Christmas movie is ‘No Sleep ‘Til Christmas,’ which immediately had me imagining a child who was too excited to sleep before Christmas morning, or perhaps a child who was trying to stay up late at night in an effort to try and catch Santa in the act! Both possibilities sound plausible and cute with this title, but are way off the beaten path when it comes to the true story behind the title.

Here it is...
‘No Sleep ‘Til Christmas’ movie synopsis via TVline.com:
"Lizzie (Odette Annable, "Supergirl") is an event planner preparing for her wedding, who lies awake nightly while her fiancé rests peacefully. When a sleep-deprived incident causes her to run into Billy (Dave Annable, "Brothers and Sisters"), a bartender who is just as sleepless and frustrated as she is, they discover that they can only fall asleep while next to each other."

Freeform is well known for crossing the immoral line when creating their content, so I cannot say this particular story is surprising. I did want to make you all aware, and inform you that I will not be watching or sharing further details on this movie here.

Please let me know what you think in comments below.

Thank you for reading. Blessings, Net

TWO DAYS until CHRISTMAS Movies begin on Hallmark… Come on Ride "The Christmas Train"!

- Hallmark Crown Media -

See the Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie The Christmas Train during Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Gold Crown Christmas Movie Event from June 29th through July 15th!

The Christmas Train storyline via Hallmark: From Hallmark Hall of Fame, a journalist embarks on a cross-country train ride at Christmas having no idea this journey will take him into the rugged terrain of his own heart.

In “The Christmas Train,” disillusioned, globetrotting journalist Tom Langdon (Dermot Mulroney) must get from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles in time for Christmas. Forced to take the intercontinental trip by train, and determined to chronicle his adventure, Tom finds himself westbound with a variety of characters. On the train is renowned movie producer Max (Danny Glover), Max’s script doctor and protégé Eleanor (Kimberly Williams-Paisley), and Agnes (Joan Cusack) who occupies the cabin opposite Tom’s and seems to know his business better than he does. While all passengers on the Christmas train appear to be headed for the same destination, Tom has no idea that the rugged locomotives taking him across America will instead detour straight into his heart – into rude awakenings, his wildest hopes and dreams, and toward the opportunity for love Tom thought was lost forever.

Candace Cameron Bure & Lacey Chabert's 2018 Hallmark Christmas Movies - Revealed!

- Hallmark Crown Media -

Get ready to deck the halls
and watch two of Hallmark's
most popular leading ladies
return this Christmas Season!

Candace Cameron Bure's Hallmark Christmas Movie...

According to EW.com, "Bure will anchor a book adaptation of Beth Harbison’s A Shoe Addict’s Christmas. The Fuller House star plays Noelle, a holiday hater who toils in a department store in which she is accidentally locked on Christmas Eve. There, she meets a woman who identifies herself as Noelle’s guardian angel and introduces her to several “ghosts” of Christmases past, present, and future."

Lacey Chabert's Hallmark Christmas Movie...

According to EW.com, "Chabert will star in a different book adaption: Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe, which is based on Melissa de la Cruz’s book of the same name. In a Yuletide-themed, gender-swapping update of the classic Jane Austen novel, Chabert plays Darcy Fitzwilliam, a smart and successful woman who has a glamorous dating life but has not fallen in love. She is also short on Christmas cheer. When her mother becomes sick, though, she returns home, setting in motion a turn of events that could lead to a very happy New Year."

Both of these Christmas movie projects sound amazing for Candace and Lacey! Candace's movie most likely will air the weekend of Thanksgiving, while Lacey's Christmas movies typically air either early or mid November! Whenever they play- I'm sure Hallmark Channel viewers will be in for a wonderful treat!

Joyful Blessings to you all, Net

Love at Sea - a Hallmark Channel "Summer Nights" Movie starring Carlos and Alexa Penavega!


Movie: Love at Sea

Network: Hallmark Channel

Original Air Date: August 11, 2018


Alexa Penavega ... Olivia Grayham
Carlos Penavega ... Tony Rieves
Melissa Carcache ... Alexandra Urbinati
Audrey Landers ... Maeve Grayham
William R. Moses ... Wes Jameson
Edward Finlay ... Miles Webster
Meghan Colleen Moroney ... Paula Anderson
Justin Miles ... Stuart
Peyton Lee ... Ben Roberts
Michael A. Cook ... Preston Smith
Michael Dicarluccio ... Judge #2


Storyline via Hallmark: It’s been a year since Olivia Grayham, a child of the hotel business, struck out on her own as an event planner. It’s been a struggle but she’s finally poised for a major career boost thanks to her best friend Alexandra, who is taking her wildly popular YouTube lifestyle series onto the high seas for a Caribbean cruise. Tasked with organizing a multifaceted event for the fans onboard and online, Olivia has plotted the journey down to the last detail and planned for every possible contingency, or so she believes. She’s no sooner onboard than she faces her first curveball: the ship’s longtime cruise director has been reassigned and instead she will be working with his second-in-command, Tony Rieves, who has already begun putting his stamp on the ship’s activities. With no option but to adjust to each unexpected development that comes her way, Olivia realizes that there are some things that simply can’t be planned or anticipated – like falling love.

Has ACTION been called on Hallmark Christmas Movies starring Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Ashley Williams?

Ashley Williams and Kimberly Williams-Paisley images: Hallmark Crown Media

"Lights, Camera, Christmas" Part 1 and Part 2 (wt) are a pair of Hallmark Christmas movies that will star sisters Kimberly Williams-Paisley ("Father of the Bride") and Ashley Williams ("October Kiss")!

We first learned these movies were potentially "in the making" in early 2017! However, during the 2017 Christmas season sisters Kimberly and Ashley created separate Hallmark Christmas movies, Hallmark Hall of Fame's "The Christmas Train" and "Christmas in Evergreen".

When I interviewed Ashley Williams in the Fall of 2016, she expressed a great desire to have the opportunity to work with her sister. Plans then were only in their infancy... very early, beginning stages, but even still, Ashley was quite enthusiastic over the prospect!

IMDB summarizes these upcoming movies, with the working title: "Lights, Camera, Christmas," as "Two sisters and a holiday to remember."

According to ibtimes.com:

“My sister and I are developing a pair of Christmas movies,” Williams-Paisley told International Business Times. While she’s not sure exactly when the movies will debut, she does know that the movies have a really “interesting concept.”

There will be two films, both starring Williams-Paisley and Williams, with each featuring a different sister as the lead “and then we’re each other’s supporting,” the “Darrow & Darrow” star revealed to IBT. She’s excited about this concept, which Hallmark hasn’t really done before, and hopes fans will get to (see) them “at some point in the next couple of years.”

So... since Kimberly said we may "get to (see) them at some point in the next couple of years,” it sounds like these two Christmas movies are still in the development phase, which is unfortunate because I know many have been looking forward to seeing these movies since that first hint was given! Until they do come, I know we'll be sure to keep a look-out for them and the Williams sisters in hopefully more Hallmark movie projects, including Kimberly Williams-Paisley in a new Darrow & Darrow mystery movie on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries!

Joyful Blessings to you all, Net

Lori Loughlin returns in Garage Sale Mysteries Month this August!

Hallmark Press Release:

The Network’s
Summer of Mystery Continues
with Garage Sale Mysteries Month

STUDIO CITY, CA – June, 26, 2018 – Following the success of last year’s programming event, Lori Loughlin is back as Jennifer Shannon the curious sleuth with a knack of discovering not only garage sale treasures but foul play. Hallmark Movies & Mysteries unravels four new original “Garage Sale Mysteries” every Sunday in August starring Lori Loughlin (“When Calls the Heart,” “Fuller House”), Sarah Strange (“Men in Trees,” “Life as We Know It,”), Steve Bacic (“When Calls the Heart”), Eva Bourne (“When Calls the Heart”) and Kevin O’Grady (“You Me Her”).

“Garage Sale Mysteries: The Pandora’s Box Murders,” Premieres Sunday, August 5, (9 pm ET/PT) Garage sale guru and amateur sleuth Jennifer Shannon (Loughlin) agrees to appear on a new reality TV series, where she comes in contact with a mysterious puzzle box, in which the box’s now-deceased creator may have placed the clue to her killer. When the dead woman’s daughter-in-law is found dead just a few days later, Jennifer’s curiosity once again places her in harm’s way as she embarks on her own unorthodox investigation of the murders.

“Garage Sale Mysteries: The Mask Murder,” Premieres Sunday, August 12, (9pm ET/PT) Garage sale guru Jennifer Shannon (Loughlin) discovers a dead body in the storage locker she and business partner Dani (Strange) have purchased at auction. When further inspection of the locker’s contents includes plaster “death masks,” and one of those masks perfectly matches the dead woman’s visage, Jennifer’s “inner sleuth” kicks into overdrive as she pieces together the clues that will lead to the killer.

“Garage Sale Mysteries: Picture a Murder,” Premieres Sunday, August 19, (9pm ET/PT) After taking on consignment a vintage camera collection following the death of a local collector, garage sale guru and amateur sleuth Jennifer Shannon (Loughlin) becomes involved in the search for a killer when an undeveloped photo in one of the cameras leads her to believe that the man might have died from very unnatural causes.

“Garage Sale Mysteries: Murder in D Minor,” Premieres Sunday, August 26, (9pm ET/PT) When a local art collector dies and his expansive collection is auctioned off, garage sale guru and amateur sleuth Jennifer Shannon (Loughlin) and business partner Dani (Strange) purchase a rare piece. However, when the provenance of the entire collection comes into question, and Jenn determines that the man may have a secret stash of ill-gotten treasures hidden away, she finds herself investigating a pre-meditated murder.

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries premiered four new original Garage Sale Mysteries movies in August 2017, making the network the number one ad-supported cable network across the four Sundays.

The “Garage Sale Mysteries” franchise is a Front Street Pictures Production with Harvey Kahn producing stories inspired by the “Garage Sale Mystery” books by Suzi Weinert.


Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is the second 24-hour linear channel under the Crown Media Family Networks umbrella. Distributed in 68 million homes across the United States, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries is one of the fastest growing networks in cable and a leading destination for quality, family friendly entertainment. Launched in 2008 as Hallmark Movie Channel, the network was re-branded in fall of 2014, transitioning into Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. True to its name, the channel brings the lighter side of the suspense and mystery genres into focus with rich, dramatic, and thought-provoking storytelling. The network’s programming lineup features a unique mix of new, original movies, presentations from the acclaimed Hallmark Hall of Fame library, and such time-honored acquired series as “Murder, She Wrote,” “Matlock,” “Hart to Hart” and “Diagnosis Murder”. The channel is also home to the annual, eight-week holiday programming event “Miracles of Christmas,” which helps viewers celebrate the season with new, original movies and holiday favorites.

MARK the 25th + FOUR DAYS until CHRISTMAS Movies begin on Hallmark… Engage Yourself in Christmas Movies Night & Day! @hallmarkmovie

Today is June 25th!
Let's share today which Christmas Movies
we are watching!
details below...

Hallmark Crown Media

Let's "MARK" THE 25th!

Today, June 25th...is only 6 months until December 25th, Christmas Day... 182 days and so many hours and minutes, according to my Countdown Clock!!!

To commemorate this special time here at It's a Wonderful Movie... I'll share which Christmas movie I have chosen to watch on the 25th, and for those of you who would like to participate, please share which Christmas movie/program you are watching on the 25th - in comments below!

On this June 25, 2018, I am watching-
Holiday Engagement

Hallmark Crown Media

Holiday Engagement storyline via Hallmark: Jilted by her high-powered fiancé just before Thanksgiving, and terrified of disappointing her demanding mother (Shelley Long), Hillary Burns (Bonnie Somerville) hires David (Jordan Bridges), an unemployed artist to pretend to be her fiancé over the holiday weekend. She soon discovers however, that the hired replacement may not be a replacement after all – but the real thing.

Due to this being the end of Hallmark's June Weddings month, I thought "Holiday Engagement" would be a fun, entertaining movie to watch - because it includes an engagement and a wedding! If you want a movie that will make you laugh and bring a smile to your face, this one is pretty much guaranteed to do just that!

"Holiday Engagement" is an absolute riot, an unforgettable wonderful treat, from the moment Hillary (Bonnie Somerville) is dumped by her boyfriend, Jason, and schemes with her best friend on taking a pretend fiancé, David (Jordan Bridges), home for Thanksgiving! The scene where Hillary and David, I mean Jason (wink! wink!), sing together at the piano is my favorite, along with the restaurant hilarity, insightful sister scenes, planning a pretend wedding, surviving a bridezilla at the bridal shop, an exploding turkey, and so much more! Through it all... somehow Hillary finds true love, but with which Jason?... the real one, or the guy pretending to be him? If you don't know, you'll have to watch "Holiday Engagement" to see!

You can watch "Holiday Engagement"
Streaming or DVD.

Unfortunately, this movie won't be shown in July, but you can see lots of other wonderful Hallmark Christmas movies being shown then, including other Christmas weddings, such as: "A Royal Christmas," "A December Bride," "Christmas with Holly," "A Princess for Christmas," "Marry Me at Christmas," "Snow Bride," and more! See the

(*Please note: This movie is rated TV-PG.)

I hope you all have a Wonderful Weekend! I'm looking forward to checking out both of these movies. With each new movie in the Wedding March series, it's been a joy to see the development of Mick and Olivia's love re-blossom, as well as that of their family members and guests, who have visited and married at the inn... of course, with just a few minor mishaps along the way! (ha! ha!) But, in the end, love conquers all and saves the day! It should be interesting to see where movie #4 takes our lead couple and their many visitors!

Love's Last Resort looks like it could be a fun, comedic, yet romantic love story. As I shared above, it is rated TV-PG, so please keep that in mind. I am hoping it will be a sweet little movie, an amusing tale as our lead actress has to take this trip in order to discover the true love she's been seeking - perhaps, originally, in the wrong place!

Plus... Can you believe it? By this time next week (those of us who have Hallmark Movies & Mysteries) - we'll be watching Christmas movies! See the schedule *here*!

Enjoy this first official weekend of Summer, Everyone!

Blessings to you all, Net
