I visited the Henry Ford Museum recently and
of course, I was drawn to the display of kitchens
through the years.
I wish I could have been a Kitchen
Anthropologist, I love to research
all the gadgets and wares of the various
Though I wouldn't want to live with
a pump and a dry sink, I still like the
look of it.
Looking through these displays, I realized
I own or have owned some of these pieces.
I loved the 1930's kitchen, I would not
want to cook in this in my busy life I lead
everyday but if I had a cottage I could escape
to and spend hours whipping up meals,
this kitchen would be perfect for me.
That sink is one that got away for me...
Years ago before I had a house, before I
was married, I saw that sink on the trash
pile of St. Mark's Church in my hometown.
I said to my sister I want that to be my
kitchen sink someday! We tried to pick it
up and even though we were young, healthy
and strong, we could not move it an inch. It
weighed a ton! I still dream of having that
sink ~ someday...
