Current obsession: Arranging things by their color

Image Hosted by

I used to do this with Smarties when I was a child. Lay them all out on the table and arrange them by their color. Then do a few statistics over which colors there were the most and the least. Then eating them in order so that there'd be one of each left in the end. I don't really eat Smarties anymore but I guess I'd do the same thing if I did. Actually, I used to do this with my clothes which were on hangers as well, but my collection of Petit Bateau ts are neatly piled in order of their color still. We all have our peculiarities, right? Anyways, I just noticed it seems especially popular to arrange books by their color. I've seen it lots of places recently. I say, anything goes. It looks awesome, don't you agree?

I did the exact same thing with Smarties chocolates as a child.

Needless to say I my clothes are arranged by colour, though there aren't that many colours to arrange by mainly black, white, grey, blue and the occasional red. But I actually have my books arranged by colour for years as well - I have all my orange Penguin books on one shelve and the other colours arranged accordingly.

Maybe it's a mild variation of autism? ;)

I'm glad to hear/see I'm not the only one being a bit perfectionistic when it comes to arranging. I still do the thing with smarties - but the orange are the best..! Althoug my cd's are arranged alphabetically.
You sure do have a lot of coloured clothes :)
