Pretty: Organized

I was gonna say something, but just can't remember what it might have been.  Oh, well, in the meantime, I'll just start on another subject.  This may become a new blog series.  When I can't think of what it was I was going to blog about, I'll just post pretty pictures that may show some organizational skills.  I'll just call this series "Pretty:  Organized"  (I had to hurry and get that typed and saved before it slipped my mind.....again!)

 Birds in my garden are always pretty to watch. Their organizational skills continue to amaze me.  They can get so much done in so little time.  First they scan the crowd for a likely mate, do a lot of flirting and courting - seemingly in an hour or two.  Then they build the house, have the kids, give them their basic living-in-the-real-world-skills and scoot them on their adulthood way!   Wow, that was quickly done.  They know what they want and know how to go about getting it in a very organized fashion.     They can be counted on to be there in the morning, singing me a happy wake-up tune, and they who...who me at setting sun.

 Whether flowers in the garden or organized or not doesn't matter one bit to me: always pretty regardless their state of bedlam.   Therefore, they should always be included in my Pretty: Organized blog series.

Grandmother's Books

Groupings almost always show organizational skills - don't you think?  For instance in these books, boats and bottles!   How to get them all aligned in the space allotted where all are visible and ready to grab at a moments notice.

Boats off the coast of Italy

Blue bottles at Oak Point

At a busy street-side restaurant, the tables are ready for diners.  Time is money!

Tires ready to grab.  I can just see Danica Patrick's little feet stamping now if she lost a lap caused by a race car team without organization.  Jobs are immediately endangered when the timing is off in tire changes. The team has to have that skill honed to a fine art.  

And finally....what I loved about this picture.  Not only that every cottage in this row is so beautifully kept - that should be a given in every community - but look at the placement of  the mail boxes.  All together now, one, two, three, four, five.  How many stops did this postal employee have to make to get the post to these five cottages?  How many steps did he save?  How can this simple ingenuity save the system thousands.  Instead of cutting services,  couldn't they just get the system organized.   Couldn't the public be asked to participate in cost-cutting by getting their neighborhood organized?  What we do and how we do it?  Pretty:  Organized.


  1. Very nice photography - and how I'd love to see an owl like that watching me. I hear them in the woods near us sometimes, but haven't seen one for a long time.

    1. Thank you Sande. Who came to visit last year and stayed with us for a couple of days. We loved having him.

  2. Oh how I need to do some organizing..........but when we get organized, does it mean we have to throw anything away?? I hate that subject........I hate to throw away!! But at the same time, need to get organized..........I buy bins and bins........but still packed in my sewing room.....and you know I can't stop buying........that's just not going to happen!!! It makes me to happy to bring home new idea's and fabric.......


    1. No Karla, don't throw anything away, just pass it along to me! But I've found that everything has a place and everything in it's place saves me a huge amount of time when I go looking for something. I'm so glad you are who you are.


Thanks for stopping by...
