great entry

It had its first clean for over three years just before I put it on the fireplace....it wasn't too bad really! It may go up to the loft when the room is revamped.....we still have bare plaster walls ( Farrow and Ball have an estate emulsion paint called 'new plaster'....we're well in)) and no curtains at the windows.....etc.etc. we may just be finished for Christmas....

Barbara I have put my copper kettle into the loft alongside lots of brass..it was taking too long to keep bright and beautiful...

Will have to see how it goes Joan... I am not particularly keen on cleaning brasses...can't imagine why!!

I am late to comment the last one, but I like both entries !!

Barbara, you should send all your copper things to my husband. He will clean them with great pleasure. Ours are always neat and shiny !! ;+)) lol

Nice reflections...you will have to do some interior shots when you are done with your house.

What a nice copper kettle. My eyes kept going to those little tea lights (candles in aluminum shells). At least that is what they look like. I use a lot of those to warm potpourri liquids in little ceramic thingies. I don't know the name of those simmering liquids, so I just put them in the potpourri category. Makes the house smell good.
Assuming they are candles, I'll just complain about the ones available now in stores here as opposed to what was available before China started making copies of everything. There was a time, seemingly not so long ago, when the little tea lights were made in the USA and would burn for six hours. Now, it's nearly impossible to find tea lights that will burn for three hours. Ones made in China are whipped full of air to increase volume and reduce wax content. Can you still get a good tea light in England? Can you still get a good copper kettle?

Great reflection entry!:)
Sep 29 2011 09:04 GMT hallo
It's a beautiful pot with lots of memories, which I think should stay where it always did :)

Thank you Sheila....that, and the copper coffee pot last Thursday came in a job lot from an auction many years ago...my Dad used to go to them and come back with all sorts of things :)

Great one

Cup of tea...yes, but not made with water from this kettle Wijnie...think I'd have food poisoning!

Thanks Larry...yes, they are little tea lights...I must admit I haven't really taken much notice of how long they burn...I tend to use them mainly at Christmas...dash, now you know I haven't moved them since last year!! I will take particular note when I next light one...I know that I have a big bag of them in a cupboard - somewhere -I'll find it eventually..! I used them for a similar purpose....in the bottom of an oil burner:)

Could be a while Jo....the plasterer is coming again on Monday to start the hall, stairs and landing....we must be mad, still in turmoil from the last job he did, and no end in sight yet.....although the carpet is chosen, the sofas are being made (12 weeks for that) someone has been about window blinds today, so we are a bit further forward...but not much!
