In Honor of My Mom: Organizing in Blue for 2015

small fabric bucket with blue polka dots

Eight years ago today, my mom died of pancreatic cancer. It’s an especially poignant day this year, since May 10 falls on Mother’s Day. My mom’s favorite color was blue, so this is my annual tribute to her: blue containers and other organizing-related products. Let’s start with this small fabric bucket, which comes from Nik J Designs.

4 magnets, in blue and yellow, with bicycle designs

These glass magnets come from Tanner Glass. These caught my eye because I remember Mom insisting I learn to ride a bike — but I was never very good at it.

Greg Stefan Studios has a wide variety of small glass trays.

Nom Living provides lacquer trays in a range of shapes, sizes and colors.

Finally, Mom would probably have liked the Evolution Photograph Bookend from David Linley, as long as she didn’t see the price tag.
