Hello people. It's been a while since I bored you with kitchen stuff so I thought it was about time to do it again.
Not sure if I showed you the finished sink base. It was a standard base until we easily modified it to accept the soapstone farm sink.
This color is SW's Curio Gray, an old historic color that they still have in their fan deck.
The other cabinets are a little lighter and very neutral. Behr's Riviera Beach. I did a dark Minwax walnut stain on the edges, then a coat of dark cranberry. You can see the red through the chips and the stain on the edges. The same stain that covered me and half the kitchen a few days ago.
We went to Volant for Amish farm goods and stopped at the antique shop and James Creek. I found this 8" wide x 34" old wooden oven peel. The tapered end is delicate and so very thin from use. I needed something long and narrow for the side of the fridge and this is perfect.
James Creek looked very nice, better than a month ago, and the shop was filled with Fall colors. Since Homespun Weavers have changed to a more limited and modern line of wovens, I grabbed several small pieces at 40% off. When she told me a month ago that the colonial lines were discontinued, I should have grabbed the larger cloths then.
We stopped in River's Edge to see Wendy (Judy), who worked at JC for many years and was a joy to visit with. I have always called her Judy since that's exactly what she looks like to me. A Judy.
And speaking of discontinued, I'm sure you've all heard by now that Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly is finished. The fall issue was its last. I just renewed for two years.
That's it. Still car shopping, narrowed down to another Escape or Subaru Forester. The Escape comes in a wild gold called Electric Spice. That may be the deciding factor since I am used to, and want, a car easily seen in the parking lots. I've helped many elderly folks that I found roaming the lots find their vehicles and am not ready to become one of them.
Have a good week.
Thanks for visiting.
