this is the first house i've ever lived in that does not have a window over the sink. i really miss that because i spend an inordinate amount of time standing at the kitchen sink. being vegan means i rarely put down a knife because i chop a mountain of fresh fruit and vegetables every day, all day long.
but leslie, aka the hostess, asked for a picture of my kitchen sink view and i gladly obliged. after all she is the most polite blogger i've ever met. nothing against the rest of you guys, but she really is.
up close and Boring.
looking to the left, a little more exciting because i can see my new drapes.
slightly behind me, to the left.
a close up of this little bamboo shelf from the 1890's. and those peacock salt and pepper shakers, my very first purchase from an antique store.
i purchased this little bookcase/shelf from the same antiques dealer that i got the wicker table from that is in the dining room. lovely pat closed her beautiful shop which was so sad but what a day it was for shopping. something along the lines of disneyland for adults.
ok, now over my right shoulder.
this gateleg table is very, very old and was handed down to me. which sounds so much nicer than the truth, which is that it was given to me by a woman that my dad dated after he and my mom divorced. shortly after she gave it to me, he broke up with her. see, handed down sounds so much nicer.
and my favorite view...slightly to my right, where i can keep an eye on him.
hopefully a beautiful view is in store for you this weekend.
we are going bowling saturday night with a bunch of friends so no such luck for us!
