Trend Spotting

It's always fun to leave your surroundings and notice something new. While antique shopping in Texas I couldn't help but notice tons of items among the thousands of dealers- but one style kept catching my eye. A mirage of cubbies, drawers and files; stacked, lined up and piled. Whether wood, metal, glass or even plastic there is something about the power of numbers. One slot is good but more is better. Every item I shot here I think of as a work of art all on its own. Filling each compartment with stuff is always desired, but leaving these pieces alone make for interesting conversation too. Perfect for the crafter of course, but imagine these used for tools, wine bottles, tea cups- or as I prefer, left alone.
