Morning Darlins, welcome to saturday morning! 
      We are having Santa Ana winds here in So Cal.. 
      Only one word for it HOT*** 
      I know the beaches will be standing room only!! The cinema sounds like a plan for this afternoon, where it is cool…
      Last week I started looking for the vintage linens I had in mind for a apron skirt under the vintage sink in the butler’s pantry. I wanted to see what might fit etc.
       Well…that lead to completely taking every thing out of the housekeeping cabinet to find them. What a project that turned out to be!

       I found them!
      I found this oversized European vintage slop sink in Los Angeles in an Architectural Salvage store. 
      I saw it sitting on the floor and fell in love with it.
       I love the curves of it, one sink is deeper than the other.
       It is huge and very heavy..
      Knowing I had a vision of a large scale sink for the butler’s pantry, I had to have i!
       It is centered under the new french windows…
      The sink will go through a restoration process. 
      I can’t wait to see it finished… all shiny, clean, white and the perfect piece for this space.
      I’m hunting hardware now, I need two back mount faucets, I love plumbing hardware too… it is the jewelry for the piece!
        I think I am leaning towards this vintage eyelet piece… It is actually a old slip/skirt circa 1900, used to go under a lady’s riding skirt. It is 4′ wide allowing for a nice gather…

      I can’t wait to infuse Lavender into the water when I’m hand washing vintage linens like these,
      in my restored little gem!!!
      Hop over to SECOND SHOUT OUT to read more on today’s blog about vintage slop sinks in my Saturday’s Designing with vintage series and visit

      Have a beautiful Saturday

      OMG, I just love it too. Never would I have thought of this, so bravo to you !!
