For those who don't want to splurge on Christmas decs. this year, but could use something to "fill" the pretty vessels they already have, these are ideal. And they are back now in both colors, a bronzey natural shade, and in burnished gold:
They are solid and weighty, and just so cute! I have two sets in gold, but am looking at that beautiful natural shade. I use mine in both fall and winter in various bowls and trays, and it's interesting how something so simple is such a wow. The acorns in bronze I would not hesitate to use all year round. This versatile set is one that is definitely going to escape my ongoing purging of decor!
(Apologies for this tiny picture-- I don't know why it came out so small! To see a good depiction, look at video with Alberti and Valerie, but bear in mind, these look (and feel) even better in person.)
ETA-- OK, here's a not-that-great shot of the "bronze" version, but I'm hoping it comes out more normal size:
This bronze looks like carved, aged wood-- nice to put in a dough bowl maybe!

Super, @Beauty Maven -- hope you love them! They are so cutely chunky and made to last. I just caved and ordered a bronze set to mix in with my gold!

@SPURT, glad to hear your good experience with the bronze set-- I can't wait till mine come.
@corita, exactly. The fact that neither color has glitter (yet is so quietly effective) was a big selling point for me too.
Im sure you'll enjoy the bronze---they're very realistic looking....

Oh-- guess what. I got my gold ones out (to play with, ha, after all this talk) and put them in one of my wood bowls. Lo and behold, I noticed the finest, tiniest gold glitter on the wood afterwards!
I've never noticed that before! Mainly b/c it's not like any other of Valerie's glitter. (I have her Christmas set of gold glitter birds, and they do have obvious, chunky, loose glitter that comes off on everything.) The gilded painting on the acorns and pinecones looks smooth and polished-- no obvious glitter (I thought, mistakenly.)
So I stand corrected, and just want to let anyone contemplating the gold version that there IS a little bit of shedding, at least on mine.
