Our friend Virgina del Giudice sent us a lovely vacation email with the subject line: “Improvising“:
We were on vacation in La Pedrera, Uruguay (very beautiful place!)
My husband and I rented a forties garage converted into a cozy little appartment for two. The kitchen was small but perfect for improvising nice recipes like croquettes with the seeweed across the street. But we did not have fancy stuff, so I improvised this salt little dish with a shell. I was happy when I used it!
Sea shells indeed make lovely vessels, often with memories attached!
Poking around, we found these pretty oyster shells holding salt and pepper…
