This is the miscellaneous picture books shelf in our living room. Yesterday there were about twice as many books all haphazardly jammed onto it; these are the ones that didn't get sorted into some other, more logical place or category. I never (never!) thought I would organize books by color, but now I think it actually makes sense--for the miscellaneous picture books, at least. The kids love the new arrangement, too: Leo helped me line the books up; and even three-year-old Milly can put them back (when she wants to, that is).
[If you think I'm crazy: I saw this brilliant and beautiful book, Apples for Jam: A Colorful Cookbook by Tessa Kiros (Andrews McMeel, 2007) at Williams-Sonoma today. The recipes are organized by the color of the food. Thankfully, there's also an index (I checked).]
