It's rather a mystery

I know, I know... ANOTHER block? Last one for a while, I pinky swear! This one has been sitting half finished for a week but I managed to finish it off this morning. I like the placement of the sentiment (it's from an old book) because the 'a' makes him look a little cyclopsy :)

The rusty wire is actually new, as are the little crown at the top and the photo corners. The rusty hand forged square head nails on the sides are old things.

And HERE is the etsy listing for this piece.

Lastly, I have started on the little batch of 221B tins. I thought that some progress photos might be fun so here you go...

I'm now off to sand, carve and paint that jumbled mess of tattered pieces.
