  24. Oh wow! I remember reading a rant on someone's blog the other day about people putting too many photos of their projects in one post. But your project just proves that no matter how many angles you look at a project there are so many more things you see. I absolutely love your project, and stand by my opinion if you have made something as gorgeous as this, then why not be proud and show it off!
