over the past year i’ve been making much more of an effort to be organised, and making sure that what i need is to hand. i’ve always been a bit of an ‘organised chaos’ type of person (chaos is a bit excessive a word!) so it’s not been a huge stretch to properly organise things in my life. i’ve gotten rid of some things i simply don’t need anymore and simplified other things such as storage items.
orla kiely plant pots c/o flamingo gifts
one of the things i needed to simplify was the storage/organisation of my art supplies. specifically my pens, pencils, crayons and smaller paintbrushes. i’ve previously had them in various cups and jars but i knew i could organise them better. thanks to these orla kiely plant pots, i now have just what i needed!
yes, they are plant pots, but as soon as i saw them i knew they’d be perfect to hold my pens and related items. although made to hold herbs, they are fantastic for organising pens, pencils and paintbrushes due to their generous size and design. i think they’re made from enamel too, so i know they’ll last a long time. in addition to that i just absolutely love orla kiely designs, so if nothing else ..they look cute!
