The second life of a centrepiece…

Almost everything you see on this table had a second life…

…the centerpiece's base is the bark that one day detached from a tree in our garden…

…the stick had been locked in a closet at home since the time we tried (unsuccessfully) to take up gardening…

...the jar is from a baby food that was devoured by some of Romina's kindergarten children…

...the rice it contains has been colored by the same children…

...and the same children, with their little hands and feet, painted the paper that Francesca then turned into these flowers…

...and finally, the Menu card was once a calendar…
