#183 Kettle Turtle

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!

  1. Sorry about your kettle, but this turtle is so cute. That plug tail and the coffee bean eyes are real smile makers.

  2. Aww a fitting memorial! My brother installed an insta-hot on my kitchen sink for my bithday, no more waiting for water to boil!

  3. Thanks. :)

    I've never heard of insta-hot Mandy. I'm going to have to look that up!

    I think my new kettle is quicker than my old one. Quieter too. I'll get used to the new look I guess. I really liked the look of my old one.

  4. Sweet! This is one of my favorite turtle posts! The tail is perfect!
