Laura of Lapsus Humanus emailed me two pictures of her scallop shell pot.
After reading Decorating Pots with Seashells she ran out and bought a kilo (Laura lives in Italy) of sea scallops - served them to company in the shell with bread crumbs, garlic, parsley and a little olive oil. Then, she sent them for a spin in the dishwasher. And here we go!
Laura actually used a wicker basket which apparently works well also, and she adds, "Oh yes, and in the background, I have affixed shells to the wall of my kitchen in random places. I think I've gone completely coastal!
Thanks so much Laura for sharing your scallop shell pot -it looks fantastic!
