I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

merry christmas to me

I do love my house, but when we bought it there were a few things that we didn't like. 1. no real closet for the master bedroom. Which we took care of last year. 2. the acrylic sink that came with the house was scratched and stained. It was also a double bowl which I have never liked. For Christmas I asked for a new silgranit sink with a single bowl. I really wanted a farm house sink, but would have had to cut the marble and modify the cabinets to get it to fit so I thought this was the next best thing. Well DH does NOT do Internet shopping. So after I picked this out I got a note for Christmas saying this is what I was getting. Well since we were in no particular hurry I waited until the web store had a sale. This arrived last Friday and DH spent last evening putting it in and doing the plumbing. 3. Is remodeling the upstairs bathroom which is going to have to wait for quite a while, but for now I love my new sink. :cD

Pretty sink! So nice to get what you want and save money too!

The sink in my new to me house is the same style as in my last house - with a big bowl on the right and a small scrap bowl that drains to the disposer on the left. I do like those old farm style sinks as well - especially those with the built in drain boards... I always have a drain board sitting out - full of stuff... that never gets put away... LOL

When we built our new home, I wanted a single compartment sink and I love it. The farm sinks are very expensive and require different set-ups with countertops and expensive to replace too.
Is yours chocolate brown? IT's very pretty.

What a nice sink! I love the single bowl as well. Lucky to have a DH who can do the work himself!

That is a great new sink! I grew up with an old farm sink - my Mom actually moved it from her old house to the one that she built!!! It was great for giving the little kids baths (and little dogs too!). I didn't realize how trendy/expensive they had become until I recently started to look for my own - yikes! Yours is a great modern compromise!
