In Honor of My Mom: Organizing in Blue

blue pencil holder with six sections of various heights

Six years ago — can it really be that long? — my mom died of pancreatic cancer. And as is my custom, I'm sharing some blue organizing products with you today — in honor of Mom, whose favorite color was blue. And let's start with the Multiples Pencil Holder from Anthropologie.

magnet - tile from Turkey with blue flowers

I think Mom would have liked the ceramic magnets from Gusto Istanbul. This is one of three patterns currently in stock.

bookend with the word London, in blue

I've mentioned Susan Bradley's bookends before, but I hadn't noticed this design — a London typography bookend — until just now.

hooks like oversized clothespins

Swabdesign brings us this clip hook called Pince Alors; it comes in four colors, including blue. The hooks are like oversized clothespins, wall-mounted, with all sorts of potential uses; see the images on the websites for some ideas. [via Shoebox Dwelling]

garden tote, blue

This garden tote from Loll Designs comes in eight colors besides the lovely blue. [via Better Living Through Design]

laundry hamper with blue owl

And finally, I'm completely enchanted by this hamper from Papa Totoro. [via Apartment Therapy]

Love your traditional blog dedicated to your mom. My first mothers day as a blogger I wrote about my mom too. Love revisiting it!
Happy Mother's Day!
