I'm pretty darned excited!  I just got off the phone from talking with my Amazing Cousin with the magical carpentry and building skills and it looks like I am going to be getting, in my NY kitchen that he is remodeling for me, a real live un-chipped-and-in-mint-condition vintage one of these (or similar to this one, anyway...it does have the all-important drain board, which is what I am mainly after.)  It's perfect for the age and style of my house.   I have been lusting after these for years, and now it looks like all that drooling over magazine and innernet photos has paid off =-) I have one word for this news: WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So... I'm thinkin' I need an airplane ticket...cuz I wanna seeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =-)  I mean, I really don't think I can stand it until June...seriously, right?!?!???

How wonderful to have an Amazing Cousin who can remodel your kitchen and locate the perfect sink for you!

He was storing it in his sister's (my "twin" cousin's) basement for years! Can you imagine?? It was just waiting for me!!=-) If he had had it in his basement, it would have been ruined in the flood... Serendipity??? Yes! =-)

Hello, how lovely to meet you... I love the way you write with an accent, I especially love the word 'purty', this is a word I am going to say everyday for at least a week. I'm thinking it means pretty, but actually I don't really mind I'm going to use it when at all possible, x
p.s nice sink!

what a great vintage piece! I am envious! Do you have a country house in NYS? I am a new yorker myself!

why just this weekend I saw a stainless steel sink with a drainboard...
Our first house had a gigantic porcelain sink with doble drainboards..and it was a deep sink too
i am so envious of our find....Don't you wonder why they haven't caught on or why they went out of style...they are so practical and now energy saving..air dry those dishes

I even washed my babies in that sink
thanks for saving the critter
