Basin instinct ...

I want a farmhouse sink. Just one deep basin. Porcelain or metal, it makes no difference to me.

Okay, I know I am being heavily influenced by the beautiful basin that a dear friend just installed in her new lake house kitchen. It is gorgeous!

I would be willing to settle for this restored, vintage, cast-iron lovely that was featured on the DIY Network.

Or, I would happily accept either of those above. The metal one at left, photographed by Dan Mayers, has two really deep wells. Better Homes and Gardens featured the wide stone sink at right. Heaven, I tell you!

I can just image the joy of bringing flowers from my garden to a vintage charmer like the one above.

And, this one shown in Southern Living magazine is very similar to one my grandparents had in their kitchen. It has all the charm and character that drives my desire for a farmhouse sink.

One day ...
