I’ve been on a little bit of a copper kick. I think it’s because I can’t get on board with the whole brass trend since the 80’s and 90’s are still very fresh in my mind. So copper it is.
While out running errands with my daughter, we stopped by an estate sale (haven’t done that in AGES) and I bought a set of 6 copper mugs. That sort of set the ball rolling…
Oh, and I found a crusty old cutting board at Tancredi & Morgen. It’s one of those, didn’t buy it when I saw it and had to drive back for it, kind of items. I’m pretty sure a few of you can relate. 😉
Then I decided to start trolling Ebay after a 5 year hiatus! I wanted a tea kettle for what I’m hoping will be an extremely chilly fall and winter in California. This one was made in Finland and I absolutely adore the shape…straight and curvy lines. That lip around the bottom was made so it could be set on the old wood burning stoves. I just love that detail!
I probably should polish it, or not. It did get a good scrubbing and has made several pots of tea.
Have you bought anything off Ebay lately? I couldn’t believe it had been 5 years for me!
