Polaroid poop on WOYWW

I'm back at my desk and all alone, at last!!
Here is my desk,
all busy with arty farty things.
To get myself back into the swing of things
I've been doing some sketches in my new sketchbooks.
Gotta love Santa.
One sketchbook has a very special cover, thanks to
the wonderful Lunch Lady Jan.
I love it.
 I decided to do a sketch of my favourite pens.
Yes that is a Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver pen in the middle :)
It's been a long hot summer but at last there is a breeze
cooling us down a bit here.
I think the heat got to me a bit this year as I did
more than a few crazy things.
One thing was very special.
My girls had been complaining that their 
loo roll holder kept falling off the wall
(it was one of those suction thingys)
 so I decided to get them a new one.
Well of course, it's my motherly duty to give them 
nice things and so I set about finding a
very special loo roll holder and....
voila, the Polaroid Poop machine!!
Yes, I found a loo roll holder in the shape of
a Polaroid camera, complete with lens and buttons.
Big Miss refused to use the loo as she was sure
her bum would end up on the internet.
I just can't understand the kids of today,
no sense of humour.  
I have a giggle every time I pass their loo.

There is also the ipad versus blonde trouble
but I'll leave that for another day.

Today was also my first day back to art class
and I did a little bit more to my birdie painting.
I drew in the birds head and put a little light
on the branches. Still a long way to go but it's 
looking good so far.

I'm keeping it short and sweet,
don't want to overdo it on my first day back.

So why not hop on over to
and see what's on the other work desks
around the world.

  8. Lolol, I want one now! That would make me snigger each time I paid a visit. Where on earth did you find that fab loo roll dispenser?
    Love the sketches of your eons, great so glad the cover fitted one of your's always a bit nerve wracking sending things off sight unseen, if you know what I mean!
    Good to see you back, I've missed your madness :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 26 xx

  9. That is a really fun loo roll dispenser! Love it!

  10. I love the look of your bird painting .I can't wait to see it when it is finished. Happy WOYWW! #80

  11. Hi Vonny thanks for popping over....I love the loo paper holder - it's probably something fun I would love to do. Your sketches are so real life, and of course I just love the parrot painting. Have a great week RobynO#20

  12. I think that loo roll holder is a blast! Where did you find it? I didn´t think kids were so shy concerning the internet..
    Your painting will be wonderful!
    Thanks for your earlier visit

  13. I love the sketch of your favorite pens, and that cool cover that Lunch Lady made for your sketch book. I also got a big laugh when I saw your daughters' new polaroid toilet paper holder. Blessings!

  14. I think the roll holder is very funny! Great gift cover, love the new sketch journals, and your painting is so rich with color! :)

  15. I love your sketches. And I am so glad someone has a pen fettish just like me! :-) April #66

  16. Love looking at your paintings the colours are always so vibrant and just pull you in to look at more of the finer details

  17. Great to see you - and your painting - again, I love it!! The loo roll holder is fabulous, how can the girls not like that?!! Thanks for visiting. Helen 8

  18. I love the loo roll holder - it made me giggle! I also love your painting - it's stunning - such beautiful, vibrant colours. Your pen drawing is amazing too - what great talent you have. Thank you so much for stopping by my desk earlier, I hope you have a great week,

  19. Ah Vonny love our land and it's amazing bird life, which you have amazingly portrayed thus far...well done!!!
    Love also the pen set including sonic screwdriver :) beautiful cover by LLJ. Mm no sense of humour obviously :D
    Shaz in oz.x

  20. I love your pen sketches. Polaroid loo holder.............fantastic it's something I'd buy and use I obviously share your sense of humour. The painting has some wonderful colours on it. It'll be fabulous when it's finished Thank you for visiting my blog. Anita 49

  21. Welcome back Vonny! It seems we have both just returned to our studios after a break! That is quite a selection of sketchbooks you have there... any favorites? Love your pen sketch but the loo roll holder cracked me up! Good job I don't have a weak bladder or I'd have needed to use it! ;0)

  22. Right off I noticed your journal pages of pens. They look so real I could reach down and snatch one off the page. That Polaroid holder is a scream, how funny. Love the painting in progress, vibrant beautiful colors. Thanks for the visit earlier! Judy #79

  23. Hi Von, thanks for the visit. I love the pen drawings when I first saw them I thought it was a photograph of the real thing, it's brilliant. Angela x 33

  24. Love your painting. Corymbia must be in flower all along the east coast. Could not stop giggling over the Polaroid paper holder and you have immortalised the moment.... brilliant. Let me know what you think of the "Stillman & Birn" Alpha series sketchbooks. So many different types of sketchbooks and people give them a good review. But I think I would trust your opinion. I wasted $30 on a Fabriano Venezia Book and the paper was such a struggle to use. Now I have started making my own books (time consuming) but at least the paper is good. Have a lovely week.

  25. Wow your pens look real enough sketched to pick off the paper. Your painting is stunning, those colors so bright and cheery. The paper holder lol, that is a flat out kick! Thanks for visiting me earlier!

  26. I love your pen sketches - forget the sonic screwdriver... you have a FREDDO pen? :D

    Your bird painting is already gorgeous, those colours. Wow. Fabulous stuff.

    p.s - the toilet roll holder made me snigger.

  27. Love the loo roll holder! Your art work is looking fab and I'm trying to get my head round the idea of your weather, while shivering in the UK! Have a great week, Chris # 11

  28. Wow ~ you've been busy! Love those sketches, and painting too!

  29. Hi Vonny - good to see you. Sorry it has taken all week to get round... life! You know the sort of things!
    Great sketches - great you are back at your art class - am loving the bird painting. That loo roll holder is something else - it would go SO well with John's new, posh, all singing, all dancing, loo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Glad you like the crochet efforts - took that wavy one to church yesterday - it survived 2 minutes and was snapped up by someone in aid of Parental Care Ministries. Need to start again - obviously popular!!!
    Thanks so much for the lovely bookmark you sent in with the Christmas card. It's on my desk as |I write! Not found its way into a book yet - still being gazed at in awe.
    Take care. God bless.
