Tea Time!

My poor six dollar kettle from Target has been such a trooper. It’s rusted, practically brown on one side (originally a stainless steel model…), and I think at one point had a big dent in it. It’s time for a new one.

Refinery 29 ran an article this morning featuring a few things that could help make your living space “more adult.” In this instance, “more adult” stands for “racked with expensive items,” but I took the bait, and look what I found!

Handmade-Copper-Tea-Kettle-2

This beauty is based on a prototype from the 1800’s, as in covered wagon days. It takes 20+ hours to make by hand and the product description says it will last long enough to become a family heirloom.

For a cool $399 this could be my next family heirloom! Now if I could just find 400 bucks laying around…
