I love this photo of an organized play area that blogger Jordan Ferney has incorporated into the main living area of her home. The key to this organized area is that everything has a place and everything is accessible to the little ones. The clear bins make it easy to locate things. I think an kid's art/work area is an essential part to any home. Of course I love the collected vintage globes on the top shelf!
I am now a stay at home mom but in my former life I was a French teacher--I have my B.A., M.A., and A.B.D. (next step to Ph.D. in French literature). I love teaching and miss it but in the meantime I am enjoying operating a part-time home organizing and design business. Contact me for more info if you are interested!
