Five years ago, my mother died from pancreatic cancer. In honor of her, I'm once again displaying some organizing products that come in blue, my mom's favorite color. Let's start with these rattan storage bins sold by Serena & Lily.
Iittala makes its ceramic Purnukka storage jars in two sizes and six colors, two of which are shades of blue. One place to buy them is Twentytwentyone. [via Retro To Go] Update on May 9, 2013: These no longer come in blue.
Kahler makes the Mano storage jar; it comes in various sizes and colors, including this turquoise one. You can get it from Illums Bolighus or from Horne.
I've mentioned Susan Faye's work before, but not these magnets with their brilliant blue.
And I have to end with this little felted wool bowl from The Felterie.
Note: Besides my mom, I've lost the following people to pancreatic cancer: a dear client, a client's mother, and a beloved colleague. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can always use your donations.
