Attended a Christmas party, the host loves to decorate for Christmas, this was one of three trees!  Had to take a picture of some ornaments, good idea!

Very ornate looking Christmas Trees. I wonder what the source of the scale cars would be ?

I recognize at least three Halmark Mustangs in the front.  I have the Batmobile that plays the tv show theme.

Some Hallmark tree ornaments are motorcycles that look close to 1/25 scale.  They also do a line of ornaments that are antique pedal cars, again close enough to 1/25 scale. I've found quite a few of these at flea markets.

Yep.  I have all the cars going back to 1991 or so.  most of the pickup series also.  My aunt used to buy them for me every year, and then my mother-in-law started but it sounds like maybe she didn't get this year's. 

Maybe I should hit the hallmark store tomorrow just in case....

That's a pretty nice safety wire ornament hanger. I like it - it fits with the racing markings.

I have some random old Hallmark ornaments, along with a few plastic Carlton ones. 

The Hallmark Lionel train ornaments (two sizes) are fun as well.

 

I have made my own ornaments from Matchbox re-issued early models, ERTL 1:144 diecasts, and two steam locos from Glencoe Models (ex-Ideal).  The other Glencoe/Ideal small-scale kits available would make great ornaments as well.
