The thing I like most about organizing is that "All's Right with the World" feeling that you get, for a little while, anyway. The thing I like next most is that doing a little organizing makes you want to do even more.
A couple of years ago, a good friend and neighbor gave me some lovely vases as a birthday gift. They are blue ceramic - one with the word "harmony", one with "serenity". I love them, but unfortunately discovered that they don't hold water very well - not sure if they leaked or sweated, but I put them on the shelf to use as bookends, until the day when I would remember to find and buy some plastic inserts.
That day didn't come, but.... as part of my organizing, I decided they would be a perfect place to put my collection of bamboo knitting needles. Voila!!!
Before I put them in their new spot, I used a permanent marker to mark the sizes on the ends. That way I won't have to find my magnifying glass to check the tiny print on the sides of the needles with the sizes. I really like these needles, though they are cheapies. I bought them on ebay from a seller in Hong Kong - got a full set with all sizes for ~ $20 including shipping. I liked the first set I got so much that I ordered another in the shorter size.
