Sorry I've been MIA, we lost a precious grandmother on Saturday morning and we have been spending time with family and reminiscing - celebrating her life! The Daffodil is from her yard... and SOOOO reminds me of her.
Oh, the window sills! Feast your eyes!
If that doesn't make you smile... I don't know what will! The old sink with double washboards is fantastic! Lori from Connecticut emailed me this photo... here's the email that came with it:
Here is my photo of the window at my sink. I find myself at the kitchen sink many times throughout the day as it has a southern exposure and I need the sun shining on me during the winter. I am afraid my neighbors probably think I am a nosey neighbor...haha. My window sill is not deep enough to put a pot on so my honey made me a shelf. The brackets he found at a tag sale and I kept them just the way he got them, a little shabby. If you can see my sink in the photo, it is original to the house. It is a large deep sink with a double washboard. I absolutely love it. When we redoing the kitchen my honey said he would get me a new sink and I yelled...No! I love my old sink. The curtains I made from a tablecloth that was on sale for $2 at Marshalls. I tried to take a full on photo, but with the sun shining in (and me not knowing much about photo taking in a sunny window) the photo was washed out, so I took the photo from the side. Here is a link to my blog but I am sure no one would be interested in family stuff, but there are entries for my decorating in my dining room and living room. Oh and if you want to cheer yourself up you can check out the albums page for the Beach Walks, Patio Construction and Flowers 2007.

Then I found this from Carolina Eclectic:
Beautiful! The email that came with the photo (little does she know I read and love her blog! I've added her to my left column of daily reads):
My name is Carolina Saunders. I saw your post about kitchen window sills. I posted a couple of pictures
about mine some time ago. Who would have thought that Flikr had a group dedicated to pictures of what is on peoples sill. Anyway, I am attaching the picture I posted. I have two small figurines made from zinc (I think). I call them Las Chiquitas, which means the little ones. I get a lot of enjoyment out of looking at them, I don't know why. My blog is called Carolina Eclectic, but I have another blog dedicated to my random thoughts.
Then there is my squirrelly sister:
My sister's window sill... before her family came down with the flu.
And of course... the after, a photo she took this morning. She is hilarious.
I'll post more photos tomorrow...
