I like copper things. I like how they shine, and I like how they age with a green patina. This copper tray is one of my favorites. We picked it up years ago at a yard sale. Even though I've put a stop to the purchase of new (or used) tea stuff (for the DH and me - he's an enabler of the habit!), I was excited when he made an exception to the rule and came home with this copper kettle, a thrift store find. Look closely. It's Revere ware.
