Organizational Heaven

I LOOOOOVE organizing.

I am an organizational diva wanna be. My kitchen has one drawer for metal utensils, one for plastic utensils, and one for outside barbecue utensils. Oh the joy I brought my boys (when they were much younger) as they would "plant" a plastic item in the metal drawer and wait to see how long it took me to find it!

The shirts in my closet are organized by short sleeved, long sleeved, and color, and face lotion had better not plan a visit to the eyeshadow/mascara drawer, or we will need to have a little talk. I've been known to lurk in the container/basket aisle at the store. Organizational heaven is where I want to be.

Can you imagine my joy when Jessica sent me this:

While searching flickr. I found the following lovelies:
Vintage Flair made the gorgeous organizer below. Beautiful vintage wallpaper and papers were used to make this wall hanging.

Pink Paisley incorporated vintage doilies and embroidery into this hanging organizer.

Sunny Days Here is the creator of this super cute organizer with slots specifically for markers.
I just had to share with you this organizer by Whimsy Love.The bright colors are perfect for your child's room.
There are areas in my home that are not always organized, but I will keep working on it. With items available like these, who wouldn't want to be organized!
Let me know what you think about the larger print I've been using. Do you like it, yes or no?

Beautiful and I understand exactly what you mean, honey! You are much loved to have received so many lovely things. I have my pencils and pens organized also. Can't do it without organization, which drives Jack nutsy!

There is something soothing about sorting and organizing. It probably has a lot to do with removing the clutter! :D

I love the bigger print, and I love to organise events, my workplace and other people but at home I am a complete mess... ;D mind you 3 other people constantly pulling out toys, magazines etc don't probabaly help... you have given me a fab idea of something to do with some vintage embroidery though...

Hi Ele! boy I liked your post. This is great. I love organizing and I love the vintage organizers you showed. It gives me ideas!!!! Loved your other post about the kitchens too! Hope your day is lovely!

Betty said...

Ele, Come organize my kitchen! I actually just spent an hour in my studio reorganizing. I guess I could probably spend the same time in the kitchen but it's not as fun.
I love the big print you're using as I'm half blind. LOL

Fleur de Bee said...

How fun! Oh yes...type A, Aries, Perfectionist, borderline OCD/GERMAPHOBE you name it...thats me. BUT I can make a mean mess haha! Cleaning it up is fun because of all the creative storage I use so it makes it pretty!


Monica said...

Organized = Happy!
I was laughing reading about your kitchen drawers. We are very similar and my hubby gets in trouble all the time for putting stuff in the WRONG drawers I think he does it on purpose!
The larger print is just fine :)
Hope your weekend was wonderful Ele!

Brooke said...

Hi Ele,
When organizing looks that pretty you can't help but be organized.
Cheers Linda
