Olive wood Nativity Scene


Hello all,

Today we enjoyed beautiful weather and decided to visit the
miniatures exhibition in Jaffa together with friends who were unable to go
there before.

Afterwards we took a walk down to the Jaffa flea market.  Jaffa is a part of Tel-Aviv
where the population is a mixture of Christians, Muslims and Jews. It's also very old
with several ancient cathedrals and churches as well as a sea port. It's one of the sites we
love exploring and take visitors along  with us.  Being always on the look out for miniature
finds, one of the shops caught my attention.  Look what I found....















We didn't make it to the flea market.  It got late and our friends preferred going to lunch in
one of the local restaurants.

I want to share with you photos of the works of an extremely patient artist who uses toothpicks
for building materials.

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful holiday, just as we are here.
Hugs and blessings
