Discover | A Copper Kettle
Today proves the old English proverb, "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb," to be entirely accurate. For a moment, I thought it was time to wear flats again. To don skirts without stockings and forgo boots. But not so. On this particular Monday, I'm wrapped in a chunky cable-knit sweater that makes me feel utterly British as I watch the blustery wind whip snow in artful swirls across our yard. There is nothing left to do but cozy up under a blanket and wait out this month.
On a blustery day like this, we can't help but pine for a mug of something hot.
Tea. Coffee. Cocoa.
Husband and I were given a lovely enamel tea kettle as a wedding gift, but he hates it because the kettle lacks a whistle and we always forget that it is on the stove until we begin to smell smoke. Since moving out of our old apartment, I've pulled out my trusty electric tea kettle from college and we've taken to boiling our tea water in this far less romantic way. Lately, however, I've been dreaming of bright copper kettles (in addition to warm woolen mittens and brown paper packages, of course). Something both stunningly beautiful and ultimately practically with a proper whistle and an elegantly sturdy handle. This photo is of a vintage beauty on etsy. But the Simplex Copper Kettle from Sur La Table is also quite nice.
What do you think? Do you have an electric or a proper stove-top kettle?
