Bathing Beauties

Rarely is a bath had in our home without this little blond doll as a companion.

Sneaky as any of us privacy and relaxation seekers might try to be, when she hears the sounds of water flowing she disrobes and cheerfully climbs in to join the splashing fun-- without the slightest notion that she might not be invited.

I will admit that when I chose this enormous white cast iron sink and positioned it in front of the large window that looks out over the fields and our neighboring horse friends,

it was mostly this little scene--the bathing of babes-- that I was envisioning. (Not mounds of dishes...which it what it usually contains).

It does this mother's heart good to spend an evening in the kitchen making little bottoms clean and then wrapping them in warm towels from the dryer before tucking them into fresh white nightgowns and sheets.

These are the sorts of things that my dreams are made of.



  1. This is a good photo to file away for future reference for the kids.

  2. That's what my dreams are made of too honey.ox, mom

  4. i whole heartedly agree.
    based on what i hear from ness, i would pretty much want to move into your home. i can't wait to see the "after" pictures of your remodel.
    what beautiful babies you have!

  5. Your babes have the most beautiful baby blues!!

  6. That is such a cute picture! Your sink is great - a perfect two baby size! I also used to give my kids a bath in the kitchen sink - much easier on the back. Did you trim Avery's hair?

  7. Some of my favorite pics are of my babies when they fit in the sink.

  8. I really love your's just great. Really.

  9. Adorable! I wanted to let you know that I am finally working on the Dreaming Tree pattern that I purchased from you about a year ago. I'm actually making 2 of them - 1 for my adopted daughter and the other for one of her "sisters" in the orphanage that is coming home too who is exactly the same ago. I'm painting custom frames for them too - I can't wait to share pictures with you.
