1920s kitchen sink and a beautiful basket

by brae  

I love the 1920s porcelain Kohler kitchen sink by Jacqueline Kerr Deiber that I bought for the Heritage.  But, the legs are shorter than the drain pipe, making for a rather wobbly sink that likes to tip forward...and fall down.  Bad.  :[

To fix this problem I bought a bag of washers from Home Depot.

I attached one washer to the sink.

I then glued the leg into the hole.  The washer blends in perfectly with the leg so it's not noticeable as an extra piece.

Now the sink can stand up straight.  :]

I received a beautiful basket from Lidi at Basketcase Miniatures.  We did a post-holiday swap.  :D

It's so beautifully made that I just had to spend some of my mini time today playing instead of building.

Looks like grandma has been in her garden.

She picked some beautiful flowers (these were made from Bonnie Lavish kits).  I love this basket!

This is lovely beyond words! I, too, have found myself cruising the aisle at The Home Depot to see what I might use someday in my dollhouses. Thanks for sharing.
