Elankat-you are correct, I have never purchased a handmade quilt. I was stating my own opinion on it and I think there are likely many people like me who also were not aware of the costs associated with the time and expense that go into it. Thank you for clarifying but I will stand firmly in my original comment that to ME I find this price tag steep. Off to research quilting now.... :)

These are very pretty but honestly I find the price tag very steep. Maybe in person I wouldn't give it a second thought but I do find it to be a boundary if I was purchasing it online. With that said I do love the colors.

I am sorry, I don't get it. It's at BB&B -- agree with above poster, how original is this?

Love Bottles of Hope! I love the story of his inspiration equally as much as the beautiful light fixture. Great job on it! Can't wait to see more of your work to come.

Love this design, love the re-use to make this beautiful light. Love how this light inspires me in so many ways.

I have had a heart shaped rock in my wallet for years (a small one). I love this and it's so nice to hear I am not the only one slighly obsessed with the heart shaped rock.

I do love it but don't find it original.

I missed the price point...

I love this, I love honey and can't stand the mess that comes with it. I agree that a teddy bear doesn't do honey justice. Would definetly buy this!!!

I love the glass top, I could stare at this for hours.

Being a house that has children (and young ones at that) I could never see it in my own and would secretly envy anyone who could have it without risk of injury. Very nice!

Sorry, but I don't find this to be terribly original--see Melissa & Doug make your own monster puppet (velcro) or seen at Hallmark (not sure of the brand) magnetic Pug with interchangeable Tiara crowns. There are many other makers on the market of similar concept.

In my experience in the toy industry as well as a Mom to two young children this would be better suited for a younger child.

I didn't see what the product would be stored in when not assembled--would the packaging include a self storing bag? Another mommy concern would be the pieces found all over the house.

With all that said, I love the colors, I love the concept I just think if you could get it down to say 18 month or 2 years this would be much better.

@Redbeard--did you read the comments before you posted? If you scroll up a bit you will see that someone else pointed this out -- and then the designer explained this is an homage to Droog.

As someone who has shivered at the sight of those full bottles this is a beautiful way to take all the emotions and turn them into a symbol of hope.

Simple twist on a classic - beautiful!
