We love this tableau from a Texas dance hall table from the late 1800‘；s：
The Moon to Moon table evokes a more orderly， perhaps planned carving of names， or even a poem…；

Eating alone is a disappointmentaccent pillow case baby floor，but not eating matters more，is hollow and green， has thornslike a child of fish-hookstrailing from the heart，clawing at your insides.
Hunger feels like pincers，like the bite of crabs，it burns and has no fire.Hunger is a cold fire.Let us sit down to eatwith all those who haven’t eaten；let us spread great tablecloths，put salt in the lakes of the world，set up planetary bakeries，tables with strawberries in snow，and a plate like the moon itselffrom which we can all eat.
For now I ask no morethan the justice of eating.

The possibilities are endless!? Painting on burlap is not?the easiest thing unless you know the trick….use Tattered Angels High Impact Paints or Decor & DIY Paints. ?The High Impact Paints were developed?specifically for painting on burlap and then it was discovered they were perfect for many other surfaces?and applications. ?The new Decor & DIY Paint is also a great option for painting burlap and other?porous surfaces. ?Burlap is loosely woven making it a bit?difficult to paint on and the fabric itself loves to pull the paint in, so choosing the right paint is key. ?You will also want to choose lettering and stencils that have some thickness to them, soft and wispy are not the best option when?applying to burlap as the thin parts seem to?disappear.
