No, this turtle has nothing to do with organizing. But I'm just back from a short vacation in Florida, visiting family and an old friend — and this was one of the many painted turtles and dolphins in Venice, FL. They're on display until Spring 2014 — then they'll be auctioned off.
But even on vacation, I can't help having an organizer's eye, and noticing products that provide interesting options for containerizing. So when my friend and I wandered into The Tabletop and saw this neoprene bowl, I pulled out my camera (after getting the shop's OK to take photos). The bowl is hand-knit in Italy, and the baskets come in various sizes — but it's the largest one that really caught my eye. Now that I'm looking, I'm finding neoprene baskets on the web — but usually in smaller sizes than this one.
And I also noted these bread bags by Stelton, which could certainly be used for more than just bread. They come in various colors and sizes.
