as a kid, i was obsessed with organising my things. everything had to be displayed neatly, or if it wasn't suitable to look neat, then it would simply be stashed away, hidden somewhere or had to go off with the declutterers. today it seems to me i had a slight neurosis back then, actually. i still do like tidiness and order, very much so, today. but i manage to not shift around my roomies or my boyfriend's things at home (all the time) (which helps with relationships, let me just tell you...).
of course it also helps that nowadays, i simply lack the time to have everything organised the way i'd like. for example, my jewelry is just thrown all together into one box. rings over bracelets over necklaces over studs.... meaning: i don't even get to wear all of it regularly, because i am simply too lazy to dig it out in the mornings. but it's definitely something that's on my to do list!
and this picture has haunted me for a few days now. isn't it the most fab way to arrange jewelry? in colorful, luxe ashtrays (possibly hermès, nah?), in porcelain bowls, on a nice tray?
