Balconies

Two very talented blog friends won first and second prize on a balcony contest organized by one master miniaturist blogger, Pedrete.


This beautiful balcony won 1st prize.  Loly made it from scratch material and shows how it was done
in her blog.  Run visit.


This came in second.  Pilar made this beautiful balcony scene. Go visit.






This balcony facade was a birthday gift from my husband. It was bought in Lima, Peru, from a local artist.
I have a special softness for old balconies.

Last night we celebrated Hanukkah eve.  The first candle was lit by the server candle. We sang Hanukkah
songs, ate the most fattening treats and exchanged gifts.  The children received Hanukkah coins and played  traditional games.  A good time was had by all.  I love the eighth day when all 9 candles are lit on the last evening.  In Jerusalem the orthodox Jews place the candelabrums on the window sills and it's a view worth seeing.

A warm welcome to my new followers.  I am very grateful for your attention.

Anna - Please let me know if you have a blog I can follow.

  11. Drora cariño, quería decirte que confundiste el nombre de la persona que organizó el concurso y que también está confundido el enlace a su blog, te lo pongo para que lo puedas corregir cielo, ya que no pueden ver los balcones en el enlace.
    El chico se llama Jorge Cubells y el enlace es este
