Dressed Pots & Pans



May I invite you at my table,
let me serve you food and wine,
let me get my special plates,
my long legged crystals, my shiny silverware.

Because today is a special day,
because today the sun came up,
because today the air filled our lungs with endless
amounts of air,
because today children were born from happy parents,
and because today I meet some friends.

Today is a special day because no-one died and
no-one cried,
because parrots repeat what you tell them,
because there are cookies in the shape of flowers,
this is a day worth celebrating, a day worth happy faces,
worth our best dress our silk stockings our gold green Sunday shirt.

Today we don’t eat, we dine,
today we don’t walk, we dance,
today we don’t sleep, we dream,
today we don’t smile, we laugh,
today we don’t wear boots, we wear crystal Cinderellas,
today we celebrate life and we are dressed for the occasion.

Surprise your heart with your eyes and see that tomorrow will be another very special day...

Do you like your gold shiny? 

Do you remember antiques

Have you ever met Marcel

Do you agree lace is lovely? 

Meet the family

Do you believe broken porcelain brings luck?  

Do you recognise this face

Are you afraid of black

Sparkly like silver or shiny like gold

Would you like to take a seat
