Four of the existing Cinderella fireplace sets have six panel sets for the Cinderella Fireplace tiles, consisting of two 4.25-inch square tiles each. One other set consists of seven panels, with the marriage scene panel from Sleeping Beauty being included as the final panel. These are the six Cinderella-only panels.
Scene 1: Cinderella helps her step-mother and sisters to prepare themselves for the ball.
Scene 2: Cinderella is found in tears by her godmother who transforms her rags into a gown and gives her a pair of glass slippers.
Scene 3: Cinderella attends the ball unrecognized by her step-mother or sisters. She dances with the prince.
Scene 4: The clock strikes midnight. Cinderella runs off, losing one of the glass slippers which is found by the Prince.
Scene 5: The Prince searches for the owner of the glass slipper.
Scene 6: To everyone's amazement, the glass slipper fits Cinderella, who pulls its match from her pocket.

Fairy tale tiles were installed in three bedrooms at 'The Hill'. Other fairy

It could be a tile from any of the fairy tale tile sets.
Colors vary slightly between runs so your final tiles probably won't match the color exactly. If you want to change colors slightly, you can. See How to Order Tile
The fairy tale tiles are decorative tileuse and can be installed on walls, backsplashes, showers, and fireplace surrounds. No special treatment is necessary; the colors are permanently fired into the tile. You can clean ceramic tiles with any household non-abrasive cleaner and a soft cloth or sponge.
Laying out your tile beforehand will make installation easier. Use only unsanded grout when setting your tile. Sanded grout and hard scrubbing with abrasive cleansers can dull the finish by putting very tiny lines. The color will not come off; it is baked in.
I include detailed installation guidelines with your final order.
Even after you've decided you want the fairy tale tiles, you have several choices, which are not mutually exclusive: Swans or no swans (one either likes swans or one doesn't, there is no half-heartedness about swans), story description tiles, or only the story tiles themselves, side panels or the horizontal panels, or both.
