I am on an organisation MISSION this week – sorting toys, paperwork, clothes, artwork … you name it! I’ll be blogging about it in detail when I get a second but in the meantime am just sharing some of my favourite ideas in a snapshot.
These hanging shoe storage pockets make a great home for all those ‘bitsy’ pieces – much better than the floor!
And a good ole dishwashing rack makes a great place to store favourite colouring books and pencils.
I have admired these cupboards for some time now and thought you might all love them too. They were designed by Marie-Louise Groot of The Ever-So-Stylish-Netherlands brand Kast Van Een Huis when she was decorating her nursery and could not find shelves or cupboards she liked.
Marie created unique facades that hide shelves and hanging space inside.
A room can be converted to a whimsical small town whilst remaining practical. You’ve got to love that!
When I was little, my sisters and I would create all kinds of teeny tiny dolly furniture from cotton reels and matchboxes. If only we’d had one of these fab book shelf conversions to house them all in!

This one comes complete with carefully chosen wallpaper, wooden train track garden path and stacked books for stairs. These home owners have also added a roof line and chimney using thumb tacks and string. Oh the possibilities!
I can’t crochet. I can’t knit, and I can’t really sew unless we count the turtle cushion I made in Year 8 Home Economics class (yes, I am that old).
If I could crochet, this would totally (like, totally) be my next project. A crochet playground! How amazing is it?

Terribly talented Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam is the artist behind this incredible Rainbow Net playground at the Hakone Sculpture Park, Japan. The idea for the crochet playscape happened by accident, after Toshiko observed two little kids interacting with a crochet art installation she had on exhibit.
For the moment, I might just try a crochet square coaster … or maybe a scarf …
