Kettle Grown

The whistle on my cheap tea kettle recently crumbled into nothing. Instead of throwing it out, I found another option.

Scary Christmas!

You know, not everyone celebrates in the same old traditional way. Like my household, for example. We don't need nutcrackers, Santa figures, snowmen with wiggly smiles, or toy soldiers in our house to make us feel festive. Skeletons, 1960's reminiscent tinsel, and some Dollar Tree ornaments with hand-drawn messages do the trick for us.

You may have noticed the ratty brown thing on the tree. That, my friends, is a homage to the best holiday movie ever.
