How on Earth did you manage to create that conch shell?? The detail in this tells me you have a problem… and the microscope! :crazy_face:

You did a wonderful job on this amazing piece! The thoughtful detail is just delightful. I love book nooks and yours is an exceptional one. Would love to do one but I just can’t seem to get it off the ground.

This is so cool! The attention to detail and the distressing and aging of the furnishings has made this a work of art!
