WOW! Can't believe it took all that pewter! :) I love these posts as always. LJ needs a "like" button like facebook so one can just hit "Like". Also, is that a real egg? What kind? If not, what's it made of?

Coool. That's one big-ass claw!

I see several molds in the background... are they all claws? What are they for?

PS: can I have a boot full of treasure too?
