Cheaper looking in person
Christina from Powells Point, NC– Verified Buyer
I bought this hoping it would look as classy as it does in the photo, but it is much cheaper looking in person. Along the bottom left and bottom right are a lot of words about copyright, order numbers, etc. But the kicker is that it is covered in glitter. I don't mean the quality shimmer glitter on nice greeting cards. It looks like a school child dotted this calendar in blobs of Elmer's glue, outlined certain parts, and then cheap flaking silver glitter dusted over. It's along the edges, running into the golden frame. Big blobs of silver dots ruin the pretty blue sky. The carousel has parts oulined in silver glitter lines. Even some areas of the crowd and trees have random blobs of silver dotted glitter. I'm afraid to even open the bag it came in for fear of releasing a mess. Not worth it to return it, I will keep the vacuum nearby and hopefully get off most of the loose glitter from the artwork itself. It's such a shame because they took a beautiful image and really made it gaudy and tacky with cheap glitter. Nowhere in the description does it mention the inclusion of glitter, nor does the enlarged image show glitter - especially the big blobs in the sky. It's instances like this where less is more ring true. I would have much preferred the image shown, versus the cheaper looking one I received.
