Bricks and Baskets - 2 B's for Tuesday

Greetings everyone and happy Tuesday to you all!
I added bricks the inside and outside of the lower part of the conservatory. If you were curious that's 288 bricks and no they don't fit like a glove. Instead they screamed, shout and raise cain. So i had to cut and scrape the side and bottom rows. Its all good now I'll all done with that part.  Hehe Take that bricks...

If you remember in my last post I made veggies and in the spirit of trying something I weaved a paper baskets. Then the bug bit and I made a few of them. Poke the picture to see a larger image. I made one with floppy looking handles from scrap paper then a few with wire handles. Those I attached on the inside by gluing scrap paper over the wire. Of course I could not resist modeling the veggies in one after I added some gloss to the egg plants. I'm thinking of keeping one in the conservatory on the ground some where like the vegetables have just been picked.  That's it for now I'm off to go get into some mischief and play toss with the pups. Have a great!

Thanks Lil, I actually love those tiny bricks. I have a while jar full of them and have used them for other projects like the street shops in earlier posts. With a little wash of paint they really age well.
