Set of 3 Lit Indoor Outdoor Mercury Glass Spheres w/Timer by Valerie
I remember putting these in my cart and then removing them...putting them back in my cart and removing them yet again. I put them in my cart and finally purchased them and I love them! The timer is the best invention ever! I own the blue and chocolate and then we purchased the dark blue for our son and he loves them!
PS: QVC really needs to add an "everyone" button as a choice in the "Who would this be a perfect gift for?" because I think they are great in any room for any of the listed!
I received these today in amber. Even better than I expected. I plan to use them year round in different places in my home. Looked at them so many times and glad I finally purchased. I may get more in chocolate.
Bought for myself. Use the small ball in dining room on shelf with self timer so it's on at night. Have the large one in my bedroom on timer to have on while watching my iPad in bed, just enough light.
I love these
I have three sets - in three colors - and wish I had more. They are a delight. Mine seems to last just as long as they say (battery life) and are so beautiful as the day fades into evening, and beyond. We have some outside in the trees and others inside. They have earned my recommendation, definitely.
I ordered these in silver. Put them on candle sticks on the mantel they are absolutely beautiful. You won't be disappointed!
Batteries Last a Week
Like my spheres very much, but don't like the battery life. Used mine for the harvest season and the batteries on some lasted only two weeks and others only one. These were new batteries. Nice, but expensive to run.
I have bought 3 sets of these spheres all in different colors. My company absolutely loved them and also wanted to purchase them.
I used them as part of a centerpiece on my dining room table. I was very pleased with the look and function.
I have these along the steps to my deck outside. They are just so lovely and have not missed a beat coming on with the timer even as a few cold nights have set in this fall. Thanks Valarie!!!
Better invention than sliced bread!
Can't believe they are back in gold. I hope QVC forever stocks these in all colors. Bring in the soft green, periwinkle, and pink for Easter for sure. So, I just ordered my eighth set! Have kept 7 sets and given one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love these so much more than the mercury mason jars and the spheres that can't go outside and the all small spheres.
Wouldn't be Christmas, any holiday, or anytime of the year inside or out without these, so thanks Val!!!!!!!!!
I have watch Valerie talking about how you could take these out year after year...I just took my out and after a year it is not working...very upset! I have been trying to get them return and replaced for a new ones...very upsetting!!!
Love! Love! Love!
I have multiple sets of these spheres (every color but pink) and I love them. I've had several spheres outside since the beginning of May and they still look lovely. Some of them faded a bit but they are still very attractive when they're lit or just hanging in my flowers during the daytime. The only color that really faded was the purple. They turned a lovely shade of pink.
I guess I've been extraordinarily lucky because I've never had a sphere that didn't work (and most of mine came from the Q outlet which means they were customer returns). I also only had one break and that was when I was removing the whole battery box and trying to reinsert it. I've had them fall from their hangers outside and land in the grass, flowers, etc. None of them every broke. By the way, they are glass--the one that broke looked like an old-fashioned glass Christmas ball.
As to the "black spots" that some reviewers mention. Those black spots are the holes through which the light sparkles and shines. I've given single spheres and whole sets to friends who love mine and ask about them. I decorate inside and outside with these spheres every season.
