Organised Collections

There is a group on Flickr called Organized Collections that I just love to browse through. It appeals to my inner neat-freak... which perhaps is not so 'inner'! There is something so fascinating about neatly laid out items, no matter what they may be. A lot of the collections people put together are so carefully thought out, in themes of colour or subject matter. They really appeal to my eye for some reason and every now and again, I remember to photograph some of my own to add to the pool.
