The kitchen sink

2 December 2009
This is not today's real post, it's below.

I find it difficult to post on a Thursday but I don't want a gap in the week's postings. I've been thinking about this for a while and now I think I have a good idea. I want to feature some photos from a reader's home each Thursday. My post will be two photos, plus any caption provided, the subject - the kitchen sink and the kitchen.

Please send me two photos, reduce the size before you send (about 450 pixels x 450 pixels, or thereabouts) of your kitchen and your kitchen sink. Describe what's in the photo and point out anything interesting. I will feature one reader's photos per week and include a link to their blog if they have one.

I'm really looking forward to this. I love looking at the functional interiors of family homes. :- )

NO more photos will be accepted at this time. I'll let you when I need more.


  1. Sounds really neat! I look foward to seeing all the pictures!

  2. This sounds like a great idea. Your readers may inspire us in our daily lives too. I'd love to send my photos but not today!!!! Thanks for the wonderful blog I'm trying my best to improve our family life here in Japan using your ideas.

  3. What a fantastic idea, it's lovely to see how other people have done their kitchens. ( also I am a wee bit nosey! )

  4. Oh my! I would be embarrassed to show pictures of my sink and kitchen. Although they are clean, they are in desparate need of repair and look horrible! It's a great idea though. One I look forward to seeing, because it will give me ideas of how to fix my kitchen up when the money is saved to do it!

  5. What a neat idea-seeing how everyone's sink will look the same and different too.

  6. Mine is half renovated at present - there is only a tub and the new 2nd hand sink bench unit is on the front veranda :)

  7. Rhonda,
    I have emailed you the photos - sounds like fun.

  8. Mine's an old china sink, typically French. It's being replaced next year when we complete the kitchen renovations, then the old sink will go in the utility room. I'll take a photo later - when my husband's not washing out his paint brushes in it!

    I love the idea of this feature on your blog, and look forward to seeing all the photos.

  9. Oh, my word!! I have got to do this! I will take some pics & email them to you. I promise you, it will be an eye

  10. I LOVE this idea!!!!!
    I'm always really interested in how other people organize their life, but especially their kitchen! Looking at the other comments, I'd like to say that I personally would appreciate seeing all manner of kitchens-- dream kitchens and real life kitchens, half torn up, stacked with dirty dishes or whatever. One thing that always bugs me about kitchen design is that a place for dirty dishes is never truly accounted for, yet it's a daily reality, that instead just eats up valuable counter space....
    I just posted a picture of my kitchen (ie: one tiny counter) mid-baking frenzy on my blog yesterday, definitely a real life scene.

  11. Rhonda ~ This is going to be a wonderful thread for us all to be inspired by. I look forward to seeing all of the kitchens, which are the heart of so many homes.

    I sent you some pictures of our little cottage kitchen.


  12. Oh, I love this idea. I'm in! You can expect an email from me once I get my dishes out of the drying rack!

  13. What a great idea! I'll be back to peek in:)

  14. This is a great idea, I love seeing inside peoples homes, seeing as I'm so nosey!

  15. I love this idea. I always like seeing how other people live.

  16. Nice, Myra!
    And YAY!!!! for Pittsburgh, PA as that is where I am from!!!!
