Monday Motivation: Gaze upon what is orderly

I came across a fun website that made me smile.  It's called Things Neatly Organized

I've always liked places and things that are neatly organized.  Libraries, grocery stores, hardware stores, museums, magazines, encyclopedias.  If things were lined up, stacked up, color coordinated, or in alphabetical order then I was in my happy place.

When I looked at Things Neatly Organized, I was reminded of all of the places in my home that bring me joy because they are orderly.  Not perfect, not immaculate - just orderly.  So today, don't look for something in your home that needs your attention to clean or organize.  Just note those orderly areas that bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart.  Here are a few of mine:

A set of Bible commentaries.

Tomatoes ripening on the kitchen window sill.

Knives in their holder.

Freshly canned tomatoes.

Stamps stored in a printer's case.  This hangs on a wall in my sewing room.

Skirts, sheets, shirts, and fabric waiting to be upcycled into items for my Etsy shop.

Antique wooden spools of thread.

Starfish lined up on the bathroom counter.

What orderly things in your home bring a smile to your face?

  1. Ahhh... those photos bring such peace and happiness. I love orderliness too; I wonder why I have such a hard time achieving it.


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
