This here be a basket, woven out of rolled up pages from a newspaper. I then painted it vigorously. It can hold some fairly heavy items, although I haven't yet mustered the courage to test it with my large dictionary. The handles are made from some small branches I lobbed off our almost-bare-at-the-bottom evergreen tree in front of the house.

It could have been earthy, but I decided to give it a fire-inspired colour scheme. I imagine some extra-spicy chai addicted faeries would get a kick out of it. (Get it? Fire? Chai? Spicy? Ha ha...?)
