Order is beautiful....


I had a quick re-shuffle of my art and design books (thus far) after feeling inspired by this and this . Although my small collection of books (excluding novels) is not in the same league as the two that inspired me..I dream that one day it will be! More space plus more money always equals books :)...some day.

Today I am working on orders for mav and camilla . And at last (!) my new packaging has arrived so I can get all my orders to date from etsy sent out tomorrow!

For all who have not discovered Innocent drinks yet..please check them out!! I am in love with them for so many reasons..their products are wonderful, as is their ethos, packaging, image branding and spirit! Sign up for innocent news and be sure to receive a smile each time an email appears in your in-box .....

You have a lovely blog, and I adore your jewelry! What a fun way to organize books, makes it a bit tricky to find what you need though...

Shari said...

oooh! You organized your books by color. They look so great, abigail. I am inspired to try it with my books ( and I have SO many). Innocent drinks look really good. I wonder if I could ship you an Izze in exhange for an Innocent? Which flavor would you like? xox

Ahhh..by colour.
Thats ok. If they were alphabetical i would have made some obnoxios comment about having too much time on your hands...
My books are arranged horizontally by numerically ascending ISBN numbers cross referenced vertically by the number of hours it takes to read the book.
:p

Super system you have going there bro, very workable!!...is that another way of describing a messy pile that is somewhat falling over?...sounds good to me :D
Love to you, H and the bikes xox

mav said...

books by color?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
i have never even attempted to think about this. unreal. i love it so. i don't think the innocent drinks are sold here ... if you exchange with shari maybe i can hear from her how they are and we could do an exchange later on.
cheers girl!

Mav, I sent a wee email to Shari, saying how much I would love that!..but the innocent drinks are all fresh, and need to be kept in the fridge..not sure if they would travel?

You will all just need to come here to try them and say hello to me while you are at it!! :D xx

ah yes... color order... divine!

did you know andrea zittel COVERED all her books in colors so that she could do this? [to extreme]

there was also this artist here in SF that re-arranged a whole small bookstore [adobe books] in color order... sigh.... with envy!

Hey Abigail!!!
Ugh Yeah I love love your jewelry!!!! Do you lazer cut it all? I was looking at everything and dreaming at your etsy shop earlier today for about 40 min. then realized the time had flown.....and love your blog as well too :) thanks for stopping by mine! :)

Abigail said...

Hi Roxana..nice to have you here!! No lazer cutting (as yet anyway)...I pierce it all by hand with a trusty saw, and a tiny blade :) Glad to hear you like my jewels!! xoxo

Karen said...

Oooohh! How nice! I might be inspired to do the same on the cloudy cold day...

even before i read what your inspiration behind that shelf and photograph was, i immediately had to think of andrea's post of that particular project.

sweetness. and yes, order [with just the right dose of chaos] is beautiful.
