  1. Personally, I think this year’s Summer TCA Event was underwhelming. I was hoping there would be more announcements about the upcoming movies, such as those from the “Countdown to Christmas” line-up. I was highly anticipating an announcement about this year’s Christmas Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, but, sadly, no details were revealed about the film. I guess this new HHoF movie is such a big deal, Hallmark is willing to keep it under wraps for a little bit longer.

    1. Same here, Sally! Was hoping for a few more scoops and hints like we are used to getting as these TCA events. While I was thankful for the info we did receive, I would have loved to heard more about Christmas!!! :) .....just a little!!!

    2. I thought it was underwhelming too. Not much new news, and how many new series are on HMM? TOO many I think. Many still want the old series to either have some closure or continue, like Murder she baked, Flower shop, etc. But now we have another new series in Matchmaker Mystery? Too many I am sorry.

    3. My thoughts, exactly, Sabrina! I'm excited about some of the new mysteries, but there are quite a lot of them already, and I would still love to see "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" and "Murder, She Baked" continue. "Flower Shop Mystery," sadly, has come to an end, as well as "Gourmet Detective." As soon as the couples in each mystery get together, it seems the series ends there. I guess we better not get too attached to the ones airing now and the ones coming - since we never know when they're going to end.

    4. That is how I feel. Murder She Baked, to me, is by far the best. Along with Gourmet Detective. I also liked the Fixer Up series with Jewel. And Having Martin being killed (?) off in Candace Cameron's mysteries didn't help that series. Unless they keep Niall Mater (sp) on. Also, when a whole cast of characters are so well matched it has your own little town/family feel about it, like the Murder She Baked series means they have done it up right! Yet I haven't read about any of these movies on here. What's the deal?

  2. Nice photos! :)

    1. Yes, there were lots of nice and wonderful pictures to share! :)

  3. Thanks for doing this, Net! I saw a few on Instagram, but not nearly as many as you posted! Wow! Everybody looked truly amazing! I'm so pumped for everything on Hallmark!

    xoxo, Em

    1. Awwwwe.... You're welcome, Em! So glad you enjoyed seeing all the pictures here. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I thought Bailee Madison's dress was so pretty and dramatic... it totally fit her personality!

  4. Loved thumbing through all these pics, girl! Thanks for compiling!

  5. Appreciated all the pictures, but especially those of our POstables. Signed, Sealed, Delivered is such a special show--one of the best that Hallmark has to offer--and we're feeling very disappointed that there's no word, YET, about a renewal.

    1. I loved seeing ALL of our POstables together at the party too! I noticed there were others there from mystery movies that were not mentioned as far as renewals... so, maybe... it's just the timing with Christmas movies coming up and everything. Hallmark already has it set for what's coming this fall on HMM; therefore, we are left now to "trust the timing" and keep on hoping for next year.

      Like you, I was disappointed, as well, but I'm going to keep on believing, as long as there is hope!

      Thank you for commenting and sharing your love and support for "Signed, Sealed, Delivered."

      Blessings, Net

  6. Thank you for posting the pics, Net! I saw other pics and it seemed to be a lovely event. I agree that there really wasn't much news. But, look forward to the announcements!


    1. Yes, it was such an elegant event Hallmark gave for the actors and the press. Many kept saying how incredibly hot it was there in California... so I'm sure that was somewhat challenging with everyone trying their best to look nice.

      Thanks so much for commenting, Misty! I always look forward to hearing from you. Maybe we'll get more movie news soon!

      Blessings, Net

  7. I always enjoy seeing the pictures from these events, with everybody dressed up and looking fantastic! I appreciate how nobody tries to dress "over the top" or crazily like attendees do at so many award shows. My favorites? I would have to go with Lacey, Rachel and Holly - lovely ladies in very elegant gowns. As far as the guys...well, I will leave that to others. :)

    1. Glad you enjoy seeing everybody, Mark! Looks like a fantastic party... I often wonder why it isn't televised - or.why they don't do a complete red carpet and press release announcement on Facebook live. They do some on Facebook, but would love to see more. You have some nice picks for Ladies... My favorites were Brittany Bristow, Jen Lilley, Cindy Busby, and Nikki Deloach. Each of their dresses were lovely and matched their vibrant personalities. As for guys, I thought Kevin McGarry, Brennan Elliott, and Cameron Mathison looked quite nice! :)

  8. UPDATE: There was a small glitch in the TCA press release links featured above at the end of this post. I just wanted to inform those who are interested- it has been fixed.

    Please let me know if you have any trouble accessing them now. Thank you!

    Blessings! Net

  9. I hope Hallmark will make movies like Love on the Floor, Love Under the Sea, Love in the Jungle, etc...
