Polly Put The Kettle On
Polly put the kettle on, we'll all have tea! One of my favorite Mother Goose nursery rhymes - here is a page out of one of my old song books. Cute!
I have always loved the vintage Hallmark cards in the "Dolls From the Land of Make Believe" series. This page, below, is from my book about Hallmark cards that I wrote about in this post:
I have never had one, so I was delighted to find this one at an antiques shop in Angels Camp. The front:
..and the back:
My name may not be Polly, but I do put the kettle on - every morning - for my tea. I switched to tea from coffee for the sole reason that coffee the way I like it was costing me at least three Weight Watchers Points every morning, and drinking two cups of tea only costs me half a point. I don't get all that many points per day, and I just couldn't spend them on coffee. I miss my coffee, but I am making do for now.
So, the tea kettle whistles for me.
"You know how to whistle, don't you..?"
