Kitchen Tiger

This is cheating really, but Inspire Me Thursday's theme this week is Kitchen and I couldn't resist posting this little creature! Its cheating because a) I didn't make it, I only painted it. It's also quite old. It was originally given to me by a friend, as a kit to make a plant pot to grow cress in but now is filled with kitchen utensils. Tigers are one of my favourite animals, though rabbits certainly make better pets!

Have you ever read any of Jim Corbett's books? He was originally a hunter who shot man-eating tigers in India but eventually came to admire them so much he became a very strong environmentalist, naturalist and conservationist. These are very old books but give one a sense of what India was like under British rule as well as showing his great love for the tiger and also birds.

that's lovely - things like that can become really precious, I used to have a tacky mug with a parrot head in the bathroonm for toothbrushes that my brother gave me, really garish but i was so sad when it broke.

he's very cute! I used to love growing cress and mustard, they are yummy in sandwiches!

That tiger clearly disapproves of utensils in the head!

Oh but he's so cute, even if you "only" painted him...you didn't have to make him to love him -- you gave him his lovely coat and you've filled him with utensils. A perfect "kitchen" share for Inspire me Thursday!!
