Pretties and Pretty Messy

You know when that pile of stuff you're planning on doing something with some day?
You're going do something, but don't know what.
Well, it all (at least three things) came together one day.
I took a frame, a butterfly my hubby caught a long time ago
and an old song book I picked up at a yard sale and...

Now for the pretty messy.
Maybe I need to look at this photo differently.
First I see...what the heck! 
Since when did the laundry basket become a trash can too!!
Maybe I need to see it as multi-tasking?
Being resourceful?
At least the floor is clean?
We know where to look if we are missing somehing.
(Which we already almost always find our missing items in dear son's room.)
Any tips on making helping our son (who is old enough to know that everything has a place and there is a place for everything) keep things in order and his room clean?  PLEASE!?!
