Shiny Copper

I love surprises!!!
My brother-in-law and his wife Jan stopped by 2 days ago and brought some goodies for me/us.  
They're currently remodeling/updating their home, and replacing some of their old stuff.
Old for them...NEW to me.
I received 2 copper teakettles and 1 copper coffee pot.  Jan displayed these pots in a vignette above her kitchen cupboards and I always admired them.

I got busy and cleaned them as much as I could to a shiny new life.
 I soaked them in vinegar and scrubbed them with lemon wedges dipped in salt;  rinsed and dried.
And for now found a new place to display them.
I love gifts like these where I can give new life to them!

Have a wonderful day!!!
