Glass Painting Madness Part the Second

At the beginning of this year, I decided to renovate the kitchen (trials, tribulations and photos in a different post). After the major work was done (the installation of a new sink, the tiling, the benches) came the fun part - the decorating, the putting the icing on the cake. Okay, the putting the glass paint on the anything that would vaguely be improved by the addition of a little colour... The kitchen, incidentally, now has pale yellow walls, black tile splashbacks all the way round on the walls that have the sink and the stove, black tiled benchtops, dark wood cupboards, and the most marvellous cast iron red enamelled double sink, and lots of red accessories.

Thus, I now have a pleasantly garish kitchen window (decorated on one side only, as it's usually open), unique
sugar and tea containers, and a set of flour and dried goods canisters that not only cause comment (mostly good) but also keep the bugs out. Even the kitchen clock didn't escape!

Well, I wanted a kitchen like no one else's, with
strong and unsual use of colours...
