Filling 'er up

We've finally allowed ourselves to begin acquiring things for the new house. We are firm believers in waiting to buy as you invariably change your mind. But we're close enough now to start looking for good deals on things that we are very confident we want.
The first item purchased was my kitchen sink:
Ignore the wonky cabinet - that's temporary and came with the sink. The sink is in great shape (although a bit dirty) and we found it on Craig's list. Amazing what you can find there. I was incredibly specific in what I wanted for a kitchen sink: white porcelain over cast iron, double drainboard, single basin (shallow), and big enough to fit my favorite cookie sheet in a flat position. Whew! Took 5 years to find one in good enough condition.

Now we're looking at cast iron tubs and bathroom sinks. Habitat for Humanity Restore is a great resource as is Craig's List. Wish us luck!
