KITCHEN AND BATHROOM

Continuing my personal challenge 'something from each room in the house' now come with me into the kitchen which isn't brightly coloured. Light wood colour and terracotta cushion flooring. What could I choose, not a food mixer or pan, but some bright coloured  really sharp knives that I came across whilst staying with friends.  Well I had to find some, and got these in Marlborough. I love using them and looking at the cheerful colours when I'm doing boring things in the kitchen, or tears streaming down my face slicing onions!


Now come with me up the stairs and turn left into the bathroom.  A friend bought me these small natural soaps.  I couldn't resist painting them, it's a pity you can't smell them.  They last ages.  Wasn't that a nice thought.


Have a lovely week all of you and thank you so much for visiting my blog.

  1. I keep seeing these lovely colourful knives in the shops Polly. Always wondered what they would be like to use. Both great sketches with cheerful fresh colours.

  5. Crying tears of colors when you peeled onions, it's a bit like painting the watercolor :)

    1. The soaps do look a bit like marshmallows! Yes got the small Moleskine book, done one w/c sketch and am really very pleased with it. Searched on the internet for Moleskine and eventually found it in a Book Shop classed as a journal, and not in an art shop. I will post the result later. Thanks for suggesting it to me.

  7. Love the soaps ... but fair's fair, if we could smell the soaps we'd have been able to smell the trainers you posted recently.

  8. I have some ceramic knives exactly like these, Pink and teal blue I believe. I'd have never thought of painting them as you have... you've made them so appealing looking.

  12. These studies around the house are a lesson to us all that anything can be painted, we just need the imagination to do it as you have here... well done with your series Polly... the only limit is our imagination!!
