Shadow Shot Sunday.....and the kitchen sink...

When you have it all
you naturally have the kitchen sink

isn't that how it goes...

well...
and maybe a toad

but what you really have is an
over-active imagination
a thrill for the ride
a never-ending
quest for the junk
and the dust of the road
you are a dealer
of antiquities and such
a collector of fine trash
a designer of domains
a dealer in strange
a picker...

so keep on reading into yesterday's post
and you'll step into the realm
of one dealer's nest
the love
and the passion of
this person's trash
and of course
the sink

what else !

Check out the others shadows over here...
and please keep reading yesterday's post to see the rest of this magical shop
and the love of the trash and the hunt
to fill this wonderful space
of an Alice in wonderland
my friend Barb Connor's place...

A cast iron sink, and a working one at that, is nice and stylish in an antique kitchen. It seems wonderful outside, just the ticket for obtaining life-giving water for the outside growth. Excellent!

Thanks for a sweet smile in my face reading your never ending beauty proses.

I missed this. Sowee, my dear crazy friend, like me. I wasn't here as I was too bz w/ daughter's 18th BD last week-end.

Hope you have an enjoyable w/end.

XoXo as always

Great shot : )

Lovely shadow! Time to be able to use that sink out doors soon.
Love your poem as well.

Hot Fudge said...

What a beautiful image - and there's an outdoors shot in your previous post of an arched window in a timber building which is stunning in its simplicity. It reminds me of an Andrew Wyeth painting - you're an artist as well as a poet!

Laura Hegfield said...

Interesting shadow!

Chasing Purple Dreams said...

What cool shadows those taps cast. Great shot.

Greyscale Territory said...

Love that deep deep cast iron sink and the shadow of the old tap is so defined! Great shot And your poem is great! "Fine trash" - love it!
Strange Autumn weather here! It was 27 degrees centigrade by mid afternoon yesterday and more of the same today! Yet we've already had winter blasts earlier in the week + rain! Who knows what's next! And the Autumn leaves are rather pale and crackly very quickly! Not the usual strong colours! They are lost too!

Work is heavy! I just had to have some time out this weekend to do chores (if nothing else) and this morning I am off to Schnapper Point to get shots while hubby fishes and then I'm back to marking again this afternoon!

You still sound so bubbly with Spring in your spirit! Great to hear!

Wonderful to touch base with you again dear sister - if only for a little while!

Happy weekend and BIG HUGS!

Sam said...

So pretty! It would make a lovely painting with the pretty light and the different subtle tones of white and grey. It looks like it's warming up a bit in your neck of the woods!

Hi Sharon,
I just linked my post and I wanted to make sure to say hi -- I have a feeling you'd definitely like where I was today. I thought of you whilst there.

I like the old kitchen sink and its shadows. Nice that it doesn't have any dirty dishes in it to be washed!

EG Wow said...

I very much the strong shadows you have this week. Mine were less so, but this is the kind I strive for. Well done!

Americana Lady @Americana By Candlelight said...

Wow, you are lucky to have it all and the kitchen sink too! What a wonderful world, Joan

nana_ang_poppaphil said...

Wow, I love this photo. Kitchen sink..my husband sometimes tells me that my handbag contains "everything but the kitchen sink"

Hey Harriet said...

What a charming old sink! And I just checked out the pics from your previous post and I'm so jealous that we have nothing like that over here. I could get lost in there for hours. Maybe days! Have yourself a great week Sharon!

I love your sink, what a great addition to the garden.

Spadoman said...

Very nice Shadow Shot. I didn't participate today as i have some other shenanigans going on at Round Circle.
I've been very busy, that's why my visits this past week have been scarce.
Hope all is good with you.

Peace.

Birgitta said...

You have always great shadow shots and I love your words!

Crafty Green Poet said...

I like the way the leaves have worked their way into the shadows,

Carin said...

Trash can be so lovely, as proofs your shadows of this old kitchen sink. In fact in my family they placed such a kitchen sink in their new kitchen! Beautiful!

MyMaracas said...

What a great find. I have just the spot for it too. Wish you weren't so far away - I could happily live in that shop.

Sarah said...

Lovely old sink-and I did read on down-lovely! The shadow looks a bit like a sewing machine(an old one of course) but upside down.
