Pat -

I can't describe the color of the Bird in Bloom's "box." It's not red...and I've forgotten the names of my Crayola crayons (that's because my brother always got the new ones...I got his old, used stubs...mostly black...no box...) mad.gif

It's sort of a dark flesh color...or a mauve that went bad...I can't explain it, I'm sorry. It's ok...very intricate and well designed...but it's a BOX...and I just don't get it. I imagine some (most) would say it's the prettiest of all, but again, individual preference takes over here. Also artistic mentality, which I do not have! biggrin.gif

Michele, one other request. Let us see the Birdbath, too. I want to see how bad it is (so I'll know what to look for when mine arrives.) Thanks.

Re: Lily--- I am no Strongwater expert but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night laugh.gif and some of the Strongwater boxes that I have are designed with the open work between flowers.
On the boxes it is OK because the insides are finished .

Mad is not the correct word. I actually got sick to my stomach. THEN I got mad!

I'm trying to calm down, Ann. It's not working.

Lisa -- Can you imagine the paperwork the SA's are going to have to do with all the returns...just mine alone! I hope they don't try to re-sell them to anyone else. (I KNOW that Vase and Birdbath will go back to Victoria & Co....probably be picked up by realgoldfinger!)

Martha - Will try to get a separate shot of the cat, but a close-up of this one was difficult. The kitty keeps focusing out. It enlarges in the members section? I'll try....be back soon.

Thanks Michelle I was thinking the colors would be more vibrant - at least they looked brighter in the pictures sent with the order form. I think the designs are pretty though. Will just have to check them over when they get here.

Lisa - when you say bonus points are you talking about the true rewards program? I don't get it. How does this affect quality of solids being sent out?

Lisa -I do have this on the list for discussion Aug. 4 under the catogory of "Fewer solids/ lower prices/ better quality.

As Brigitte says , I am picky. laugh.gif laugh.gif

Michele,

I'm very sorry for you ! So bad to hear about worse NEW solids sad.gif

I will order mine from Micky, and I really hope she then checks everything.

Ok Martha...they are in the Members Gallery. Jack...don't let them in too long. They are sooooooooooo bad!

The Kitty I'm keeping is perfect....no junk under his little nose. Really adorable! smile.gif

And yes, Astrid. From now on...strictly Micky. She knows how picky I am...and she's not just "all talk." She really cares.

Took a look at your photos of the bird house and that's what the first 2001 birdhouses looked like . Some of them were crooked and we just sent them back and got straight ones.

The only effect this has is on "dealers" that want to be the FIRST to have them on Ebay and sell them for much more than retail.

Don't understand the panic.

Ann

I think they will be beautiful when they get here. I only have one Jay Strongwater and that is the Fiery Fox which I really like. It just makes one a little nervous to spend a lot of money on the new ones and not know what they will look like when they arrive. Bottom line - they shouldn't have to be sent back at all. Just my opinion. Be sure to ask them about this Ann. Thanks.

I'm not panicking, Ann. I'm steamed. If I ran a company like this, I'd be damn certain nothing left the plant before I checked it thoroughly. With the prices he commands, he has absolutely no excuse for any of this. I'm sorry, but this is inexcuseable behaviour on Mr. Strongwater's part...especially the signing of that Vase. You can't tell me he didn't notice the unusual "feel" of it...it's his work. He's responsible for making sure it's done right.

The End....sorry to be so negative, but I'm still upset. And I must run...appointment to keep...

Luv you all! smile.gif
