I hope you all had great and relaxing easter holidays!

Fortune and Prosperity

...these are the colors to express luck and wealthiness in traditional China
(we all know the furnishing and decoration in chinese restaurants..)

Red and Gold also are used in wedding dresses and wedding decoration in China!
Take it as a little feng shui statement, to put the working tools into such a promising vessel!
