On The Vintage Table

One Piece Standing


Folk Art Rooster from 4EnvisioningVintage









There it is. A very striking piece. You think you have never seen it, but in fact you have. This time you see it as a single work of art.  No fanfare, no pretense, a lone piece, just standing on the table. You are mesmerized.




When there is just one, that is all. And with the table as the pedestal, it is like a museum's cherished prize. And to think this one piece is simple folk art, or just a cup and saucer. Just by itself, beauty on the vintage table.

It is a party. (Not a "getty", which is short for a get-together.) All these carefully, hand-selected, vintage items, and each getting a turn on the table. A party, when at the end of the night, each of us takes a turn to stand on the table to rise above the crowd, and we become the one announcement.

Enjoy these single pieces, all from the EveTeam, an elite vintage shop on Etsy.

It's true... these items in a placement are like works of art. They're "found sculptures". Wonderful post! Creative imagination + wonderful vintage... the perfect team!
