"The Art of Clean Up" by Ursus Wehrli

This has been a lifelong dream of mine.  To be able to organize things.  Maybe not to this extent.  Well swiss artist and comedian, Ursus Wehrli can organize just about anything.  In his upcoming book, "The Art of Clean Up" Ursus organizes things that we come across in our everyday lives.   He organizes by size, color, and shape.  A little OCD (who am I to talk)  but so cool!





  1. Getting organized it a BIG issue for me. I am making terrific progress. I have lived in the same home for 30 years. There are unopened boxes in my basement from when I lived in CA in 1981. I started getting organized big time in 2011. There's a lot less clutter around me but it is a never ending chore and problem. I admire people who can easily put their hands on anything in a minute. If I have to find something important before I even look for it, I panic. When 2 special friends visit they always get me to clean my closets; throw stuff away. Girlfriends get it.
    That being said I love the presentation. Just like the paint samples you posted, take all but the top 2 photos here, put them in cheap frames, hang them next to each other and you have a pretty wall to look at.
    Don't know how you find so much to write about and again I love the photos.

    1. Ann, organization is a major problem for me as well. My mom used to say to me that when you take something out then put it back. Everything has a place. I just have a hard time finding that place. My daughter is very organized so she helps me to throw out and donate.
      And I love your idea to frame the pics and hang them together. Thank you as always for your great comments! xoxo elyse
