100th snail giveaway!

I am now working on snail #108. As promised I am giving away the 100th snail and here she is.

Vadoma the fortune teller snail
Vadoma the fortune teller snail


The base is from a limb I saved from a Cherry tree that was stuck by lightning in my mom's yard 5 years ago. One other snail has this same base. I have covered the bottom with felt dots to prevent it from scratching any furniture it is placed on.
The snail and mushroom cap holding the gazing ball were hand sculpted by me. The beautiful rug and the tarot cards were made by GreenGypsies. Click her name to visit her etsy shop. It is full of amazing things!

You could win Vadoma.
