how do i love thee . . .

I am in love . . . with our new sink.
So in love, in fact, that I did a whole photo shoot.

Lucky for you -I only posted 2 of the 19 photos on my camera. I am not sure I love it because it is the most awesome color ever - "vapour orange", the name even sounds awesome, doesn't it? You can't tell from the photo, but the wall is a deep beautiful blue so it increases the awesomeness of the sink color. Or could it be because we bought it on a special order which we have NEVER done before because we've always been kind of cheap. Or it might be that I love it so very, very much because we ordered it on April 28th, and it just got shipped to our house this week!!!!!!!! It took 149 days for a sink to get from Wisconsin to Arizona. I suppose they had to mine the iron, mold it and cast it after we placed the order. Or I might love it because it got delivered on a day that the cabinet guys were here in our house with all their specialty saws and tools and offered to rebuild the cabinet to be a perfect fit for the sink. Lucky day.
We took out our old sink when we tore up the floor of our bathroom. We have been sinkless because it was supposed to be delivered oh so long ago. It's been kind of embarrassing when guests ask to use the bathroom and I have to say yes, but you'll have to wash your hands in the bathtub.

Oh, and I love this guy too. Maybe even more than I love the sink. (yes, it's Dave under there. Not a random plumber.)

I LOVE it too! 149 days is insane! I look forward to a time when we can afford to be funky and not cheap. I LOVE stuff like that. I want people to come into my house and feel the creative juices...it is so not that right now. Not close.

I'm learning something about you that I've never known. You have a funky streak to your decorating style. I thought you were more conservative but the last few home improvement projects and your Christmas tree last year shows that you have a lot of bold decorating spunk. Fun! I'll bet the girls love the bathroom.

It is amazing what we "fall in love" with! Looks astonishing! Hope to see it some day!

I need to see this sink in person. It looks absolutely lovely. I think someday I would like to splurge on an expensive sink.

Sink me! (only funny if you have seen the Scarlet Pimpernel) How can you spit in a sink like that?!

Cindy, that is the coolest sink ever. I've never seen such a thing, maybe you're on a roll and will add that funky style to the rest of your house. How fun. I love the color too.
