H168390 - 3-Piece Frosted Children Snow Scenes by Valerie
Tue Era of Days Gone by
I was so in awe to open this box, and see how large these pieces actually are. What a great surprise.
I'm in love with their vintage look., and the reminder of innocent days gone by. These are going to look "GREAT" on my mantle There is just one problem that distracts from these show pieces. They all came with rather large splotches on the children's clothing, the tree, and on the snowman. These are supposed to represent the snow, but they DO NOT MATCH the rest of the snow, and really look out of place. I am going to try to correct this problem, either with paint, or by using a tea bag to match the rest of the snow. Once corrected, they will be just perfect, and a real keeper.
These are so lovely, they are much larger than I expected; which I love. They look like you bought them at an antique shop for so much more money. Can't wait to display them at Christmas. Also, the children's faces are painted so beautifully. Grab them before they are gone.
Ordered one set of these to use as three different Christmas gifts, my sisters really liked them!
Came back after the holidays to order a set for myself! They can be used to decorate thru out the winter season! The quality is very good, well worth the price!
WAY TO GO VALERIE
These are great. I was surpised by their size. Wow they are big! Looks great with my winter decor. I will leave them out until spring. Wish you had a Christmas set with vintage Santa & kids. I have a 100 year old house & these fit right in. Thanks Valerie.
I have so many Valerie Parr Hill items, can"t even count, this is one of my favorite, they will be on my mantel this year with one of Valerie's crystal strands & miniature lights behind, also i've put Valerie"s new silver & crystal wreath on the wall above, looks incredible, can't wait til next years items come out, thanks Valerie:):):)
THESE SNOW SCENES TAKE ME BACK TO MY CHILDHOOD. THEY ARE WONDERFUL TO LOOK AT& MAKE A BEAUTIFUL SCENE ON MY ANTIQUE SIDE BOARD. YOU WON"BE SORRY YOU ORDERED THEM. I LOVE THEM !
I just love these. They remind me of my childhood when we had sugar lights on our tree. It's the chunky sugar look. Very sentimental for me. They are gorgeous and bring back a lot of cherished memories! Thanks Valerie again!
reminds me of days past
loved these ... bought many memories of the decorations from years past , looks great on my mantel with my older pieces!
Nice vintage look
I just received these and really like the vintage look. I agreed with the other reviewers about the stark white snow blotches on the figurines. They look out of place. The rest of the painting on the figurines is very nice. I was going to break them up into gifts sets. I'm thinking about doing something to darken the blotches like the other reviewers did so they are not so noticeable.
Just got these last week, and what a nice surprise! They're even better than I was expecting. Order them, and you won't be disappointed. They are worth every penny.
Not to sure...
I really wanted to love these but as one reviewer stated the figurines looked like they had large chips or splotches all over them! I was reading the reviews when I saw a reviewer "tea-dyed" them. I remembered making primitive faux snowballs using snow glitter mixed with cinnamon. I applied glue & sprinkled on the snow! They look much better now!
These pieces are alot bigger than I thought. They are pretty and remind me of something from my Grandmother's time. I gave them a 4 because the spots of snow on the pieces look like polka dots all over instead of snow. But the glitter is just right and the faces on the children are so nice and not fake looking like some pieces I have seen.
