French Market Baskets

I spent the weekend creating a piece of art from junk for our youth pastor, 
making some more French Market Baskets 
(I have a booth to fill now!) 
and working on some furniture.
Here’s the sculpture….from concept to reality….

Very organic…I was pleased with how it turned out.

Here are the baskets

I haven’t gotten to this one yet…
I love it though…don’t you?

Art & Soul was in town this weekend and Saturday evening was vendor night. 
My SIL and I went to that and I found some nice stamps and French brocante
