Color Me Organized
I have been “tripping the light blogosphere” as of late and stumbled upon a great organizing website called Chez Larrson. Here is the link to the site:
One of the tips that I LOVE is to organize by color.
Don’t these red pens look ooo-la-la cute in this little jar that I got from goodness-knows-where?
Or what about these green pens in this green tomato pickles jar?
Or how about this old Planter’s peanuts container that I covered with illustrations from a vintage literature textbook?
(Notice that the pens and pencils are all in the orange/yellow family.)
All of these crafty creations belong to the bookcase that sits by my kitchen table. There is this little nook therein, which is my favorite, because it has a few sentimental objects:
a photo of my great-grandparents, grandpa and mom
the knobby, broken-off gingerbread from my Grampy’s old bookcase
a small pineapple paperweight that was a present from my Southern-gentleman friend, R.J.
a blue plant holder that belonged to my Grandma Ruth painted with a Currier and Ives winter scene
two vintage books: The Bobbsey Twins and Alice in Wonderland
fairy dust from my mom (which I am saving for either our (eventual) Fairy Party or for a Hayden/Riley emergency!)
And who is with me while I delve into this miniscule, borderline OCD world of not only organizing but photographing my organization?

FYI: I know it is obnoxiously luxurious of me to have time to do such tedious, yet entertaining tasks, so don’t hate me, okay? Please. I could be sooooooo much worse! Right? Right? Aw come on! 🙂
