When we first walked into our house about 4 years ago - vacant, yet hopeful -- there was the original kitchen sink. It looks much smaller in the picture than the 4 foot across width it actually is. I remember this glimmer of possibilities that stirred at one of the first glimpses of the treasures this house held for us. So -- this is pure "Vintage with a purpose"!
What to note here:
- Notice the matching rug in front of the sink & under the cat dishes -- the large one is vintage, the smaller a place mat I found that matched fairly well.
- The sink skirt is polka dots -- and below we store enamelware buckets of just about every size -- all for use.
- The dish drainer is vintage & wire & used every day!
- The window is covered with an old lace tablecloth -- hung with clothespins.
- The ice cream parlor chair in front of the window is a favorite place for our cats -- perfect view of the apple orchard or meadow.
- The sunflower picture was made by my 22 year old son when he was in first grade -- almost vintage!
