Today, much to my horror and sadness, my kettle died. Hubby says that I probably put about twenty years of use on it in the year and a half that I had it. I drink a lot of tea, and the kids like to have hot chocolate a few times a week. Today I went to use it for my second mug and nothing happened. I was not happy to have to use a regular pot to boil my water on the stove for the rest of the morning.
In rememberance for my beloved kettle, I made today's turtle using the base, the dome-shaped lid and some tea bags. I snuck in two coffee beans for eyes too.
Now I have a shiny new kettle in the kitchen waiting for me to use it!
