You, me and the kitchen sink

It wasn't until late yesterday afternoon that I realised it was actually Thursday.  Thursday is our kitchen sink day, so although it's one day late, here is Serena's kitchen sink.  Serena blogs at serenassecretgardens.  Thanks for sending your photos, Serena.

Serena writes:

"Here are a couple of pics of our kitchen sink and our kitchen. With a steady flow of kids and WWOOFers (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) the kitchen doesn’t often look this tidy. But i make sure it does at least once a day! The little red guy in the corner is our voodoo man knife block. We have a bit of a red theme happening in the kitchen.

Hope you like it."



Melissa's kitchen will be featured tomorrow and Catherine's on Sunday.

  7. VERY similar colours to our kitchen - neutral, creamy and black - with red accessories (eg, my prized Kitchen Aid).
    The knife block is cute as well as practical. :-)
    Thanks for posting,

  15. Have you ever noticed that photos of kitchens in magazines never have anything left on the countertops or benches? Nice to see some real working kitchens for a change! Anna

  16. I like the red theme! There is a happy look to this kitchen. I think perhaps people laugh a lot here. My nephew who has his own organic farm on an island in Auke bay in Alaska, was just here in Ohio for a few days on his way back to Juneau from being a WWOFer in Spain. He's been doing this for years. The CSA farm I belong to also has WWOFers. What a great movement.....I have all my knives on a magnetic strip beside the stove. Maybe I can put a red magnet up there...

  17. The red looks lovely in your kitchen - also really like the lamp, it's a nice soft accent.

    Paula - I've seen the Voodoo man knife block at King of Knives in a local shopping centre here in Toowoomba, Qld.

  18. Serena, your kitchen is lovely! The voodoo man knife block is very interesting....I've never seen anything like it! Thank you for sharing your kitchen with us. :)

  19. Me again! I noticed your olive oil tin (nice and large with a lovely illustration). It could easily be repurposed as a quaint plant pot - I have seen something like that done before, and plan on doing it myself.
    I checked out your Blog and have bookmarked it. :-)

  21. I love the red and white theme! My kitchen needs a redo and i have been putting it off. I think i will go with the red and white theme too! The VOODOO MAN KNIFE BLOCK is the very first thing that caught my eye too! JUST GOTTA LAUGH!!

  22. I like the cream and black. I had always thought to paint our cabinets white, but I like the cream, too.

    What to do, what to do.

    My young sons and I got a good chuckle out of the "knife guy."

  24. LOVE THE VOODOO MAN! So UNIQUE!

  25. As was mentioned before, it is so wonderful to see a working kitchen. Those magazine kitchens are never laid out for real people to work in.

    I have red in my kitchen too, and the knife block would be perfect.

  27. I love the idea of having a little lamp in the kitchen - makes it look so cosy ... think I will steal this idea if you don't mind Serena!

  36. I love Mr. Stabbed Man in the corner. He's so much better than a bulky wood block!

  39. Serena - I love you voodoo knife block! Need one of those myself now that I've seen it. What lucky WWOOFers you must have - I checked out your blog, you have a beautiful place. I was a WWOOFer years ago, which is how I met my husband who was over in Canada from England!
