My Farmhouse Kitchen Sink in Early Spring

This caught my eye when looking through old photos. WOW. This was a while ago before I had so much junk on my kitchen counter. Now I'm tempted to go back to that sparse look. The green vase full of daffodils came with my house. I found this old porcelain laundry sink on the side of the road when I lived in my former house. My sweet mother and I put it in the back of my car and I stored it in my barn for several years before I found my cottage. It's still one of my favorite things. Hope you have a great Labor Day Weekend. I don't think the weather is going to cooperate here. Sad face. xo

First of all.....I am a decorator for now 46 years! That is my favorite sink I have ever seen! And now, it is my favorite story of a sink I have ever known of!

The color of your paint in your is paint, isn't it?? Is the same red I have in my kitchen in Santa Barbara....I love my farmhouse sink, which is weathered copper...(unusual when we built this in 2000; and it is still pretty unusual)......but yours........sheesh! (I make sure mine is NEVER polished) Yours is the real thing! I always prefer the REAL thing!

LOVE! The paint! Was it there? did you pick it? I swear it is the same color as part of my kitchen!

I love your cottage....I loved your mother..her cat...and your dog. I cannot stand you not having neither a cat or a dog. call me a nag! I AM!!! (I'm sorry)

Oh, I meant to favorite decorator of all time......."Sister Parish" used to pick up stuff by the side of the road all the time!!

She, like you, had such a GREAT EYE!!

She saw some old shutters at the side of the road in Maine....stopped and picked them up....and sold them to Mrs. Bunny Mellon...!!

Pretty good???

It is the gift of an "eye"!! You have it, girl!!!
