While shopping at one of our local thrift stores I found this beautiful copper mold. My mother always had a few copper molds hanging on the wall of her kitchen when I was growing up, so they invoke wonderful memories for me. At less than $2, I knew I wanted it. Alas, I had no cash with me.
I went back this week and the mold was still there! Armed with some $$$ this time I brought it home with me. It's soon going to be polished up and hanging in my kitchen to remind me of one of my goals in life--to make a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.
The shell-shape is the same shape as the shells the pilgrims wear. I may never walk El Camino de Santiago, but I can be reminded that all of life is a pilgrimage each day when I see this shell in my kitchen.
Well worth the $2, don't you think?
