Set of 3 Lit Indoor Outdoor Mercury Glass Spheres w/Timer by Valerie
These are actually very pretty
Got these a couple of weeks ago. They are very nice. I put them on our back porch. They twinkle and just add the right touch. You do need 3 c batteries for each one. FYI.
very pretty if when not lit very pleased with them
I would love them even more if there was a remote to control them from the inside. My husband thinks they are the best. Please consider a remote??
These are beautiful. I bought two sets, may purchase more.
A Lovely Surprise !!
I purchased a red and pink set of spheres when Valerie first introduced them and although the glass was beautiful when lit they were washed out because they had clear lights and I had just wished color coordinate lights had been used.I wanted the purple but decided against it because I did not want a washed out look but finally I gave in an ordered purple. SURPRISE! SURPRISE!! They are beautiful lit, not washed out at all. A color coordinate light set is used and they are gorgeous !! I just love them.
I got 2 sets of red white and royal blue. pretty but need lots of batteries
Love these Spheres
I have three sets of these spheres. Colors are not spot on but they are still great. I do not put them out in the weather. They will not withstand rain, I live in Florida. I have had two larger ones to quit working. I use them for decoration but am careful with the new Cobalt Blue ones and keep them under cover. They are stunning but be careful. Impossible to keep moisture out.
Stunning Mood Lighting
I purchased these Mercury Glass spheres in amber and silver. I have the silver set hanging from my patio in the back yard, and I have the amber set on the spikes along the walkway to the front door. I have also arranged them with a centerpiece on my living room coffee table; they are simply stunning no matter where you place them. I have them on the timer setting, and one month later, the batteries are still charged. I buy the batteries at the dollar store to avoid the expense.
In constant use since August, 2013!
Placed all three on a high shelf over window in bedroom, then set timers to turn on in sequence throughout the night. Each in turn gives a soft glow to the room...not as much as a lamp, but more than a nightlight. I started out with the largest globe lighting first and progressed down to the smallest globe to have "comfort light" all night. When the batteries start to lose power they get progressively dimmer after 35-45 days (then it is more than a week before they stop lighting altogether, at which time I just recharge the batteries. Love 'em.
I got mine last year in black. Love them all year round. I hang mine from our pergola and they are so beautiful. They come with hangers and they are great for mood lighting. I live in Chicago and leave them out all year round. Great investment by far.
So great are the Patriotic ! Red is large, white (sliver) medium blue small!!! Thanks for making this set !!
Outdoors = Fading Color
When I received these I thought they were absolutely beautiful, however I've had them for over a year now with some so in my backyard, some in my house and those that are outdoors the color has completely faded away. I bought three sets for outside and I can't tell what colors they were originally anymore!! Of course I can't return them now so I am stuck with these plain milky boring glass things in my garden. I suspect I will have to toss or maybe find another way to reuse them. I would have expected more from something with these high prices and from QVC!!!!!!!
