Putting the horse before the cart

This year I dragged the family all the way to Aylmer Ontario for Christmas holidays. That is the very small town I grew up in. There is not much going on in Aylmer. On Tuesdays, from farther back than I was alive, there was a market. It was a farmers market, which slowly turned into a resale junk market and is now mostly dead except for a few cheese and deli meat vendors, fabric people, and a few used furniture guys. We went on Tuesday to get a bunch of stuff for Christmas, and we saw this green sink hanging out by some couches. I took this picture of it, and we left.

I posted the pic to Instagram, with the caption to the effect that I loved the sink, but we left it behind, though it would probably still be there next year when we came back.

Then this happened:

 We paid $14 for this sink. It is made in Canada in 1954, has the original water spout but not handles, and is in excellent condition. We are going to sadly have to rip out our glorious pink bathroom, but now that we have some sink inspiration... I might be ok with that. Now to find a matching toilet!!!

Merry Christmas :)
