A picture of some gorgeous ceramic paper plates by designer Virginia Sim sent me to her website, an odd mix of her advertising and art works, and practical inventions. My favorite, filed under “Passionately Curious” is her system for catalogueing her shoes by pasting a polaroid image of the shoe right on the box. You don’t need a polaroid camera to do this; take pictures with a digital camera or your cellphone, email it to yourself, print the email out and cut out the image. Then paste it on your shoe box. Or any box where you can’t see in: Fill the box with stuff and snap a photo of what’s inside, to paste on the outside. An image is worth a thousand words.
