Winter Wonderland

After getting spoiled last week with unseasonably warmer weather, it had me thinking of spring but reality set back in this week with the return of colder temps and snow .. ugh! A definite reminder that winter is still here :(

Being back in a winter mode, I looked over past Walt Disney Classics Collection releases for winter-themed releases. The first one that came to mind was the Winter Scene from Bambi. This Open Edition release was released in November, 2005 consisting of Bambi, Thumper and Flower & Burrow (a 2-piece set).

This charmin
g scene also included a Frozen Pond Base (released in January, 2006). The Base had complete openings (all the way through the porcelain) in which the Bambi and Thumper pieces can sit into making the surface of the ice of the base and the sculpts flush.
Flower in the Burrow will sit on top of the ice base.

The classic winter scene was sculpted by one of our premier sculptors, Kent Melton, and it marks the first time Kent has had an opportunity to sculpt Bambi (he was always hopeful he would have a chance).

I gotta pull this scene out. Love it. Flower sleeping inside is fantastic. Wish they would make more pieces like this with scene completers.

I don't have this scene but always liked Flower in Burrow. It's an amazing piece and one I think that would make a great stand alone to display in the winter months. It's one of those I keep saying I'm going to pick up and haven't yet to date :(
