Stacks start off small .. . . perhaps just a crumpled piece of old
sheet music under a vintage crocodile purse.
At this point, it's still layering.
When multiple books form a pedestal for a pedestal -
you've moved to Serious Stacking.
When the stack of books in the corner reaches four feet tall :
you've reached Olympic proportions!
You are now creating sculpture.
Some of you - dear bloggy friends - are now beginning to recognize the
same elements from previous posts .. .. . always the books, the vintage
luggage, the Louis Ghost , some hats and a few woven baskets.
The simple explanation:
I have a small house / a small life and just a few simple possessions ... . .
which I really love
AND enjoy rearranging (um, stacking ) because it allows me to
change the look and feel of my environment.
I'm not that interested in owning a lot of stuff.
(Been There -Done That)
... . .. just in getting creative with what I have.
This last pic is a classic example:
I needed a high trunk / table at the foot of my rather high bed.
Didn't have on that worked .. . . . so, I made my own.
Two large open weave baskets form the first two layers -
a woven breakfast tray was added, with stacks of vintage leather books -
then came a few more books and
THREE vintage hats ( you've seen them all before: top hat +
pith helmet + straw )
No need to purchase a new table ... ..
Just keep stackin' -
