One of our Brimfield scores was an addition to our ironstone soap dishes. These heavy utilitarian dishes are my favorite for the bathroom sinks. They were often made for hotels and are sturdy and useful. I love that they are each aged to a different mellow white. Now we just need to find the perfect sinks to go with them: I am dreaming of a heavy porcelain double basin farm sink for the kitchen, a pedestal for one bath and aged marble for another. Slowly, slowly this home will be found in pieces and assembled to our liking. Some days it is hard to be patient, but I know it will be worth the wait. We are enjoying the hunt for the perfect treasures and trying to listen to what house has to tell us about our plans.
