Thrifty Thursday: old tin kettle

Hello friends. Pictured above is an old tin kettle, found at a local thrift store for only $1.00. How awesome is that? The handle is white ceramic with a beautiful blue crosshatch design. That obvious rusting is a plus, right? Oddly, looking at the kettle's bottom, there are several of what appear to be shotgun holes! 'Looks like someone used this kettle for target practice. With the spray from a shotgun wad, it's fairly easy to hit a target at least one time, lol. No doubt, it now has a better and safer home with me now. It is a nice old decoration item. Do you like collecting old kitchen ware?

On another note, Alabama is experiencing yet another late-winter ice storm. The icy sleet fell all through the night last night, leaving us with about 2" of frozen roads this morning. Schools and many businesses are closed. We had made a quick store-run in the AM of Wednesday before it all started. You all stay safe and warm. Prim Winter blessings,


  1. Hi, Danice. It looks great , boy that's a great find. I love to find things like that, I would love to have one just like it. I love that handle. My daughter goes treasure hunting , I'll have to post some of the things she had found for me. Have a blessed day and Happy Findings !

  2. Are you sure it's not copper? Yes we're at about 10 inches now. Warm Blessings! Amy

  3. On second thought it does look like copper. Thanks Amy.

  4. I'm going to take a wild guess someone tried to make drainage holes to make a flow pot. That would be cute, however you would need to put an addition pot inside first. I that would leach too much copper into the soil for most flowers.
