Visiting the exposition again

Hello dear readers

Yesterday, I brought some members of the family who were unable to get there before, to see the MiniArt exposition.

There were not many visitors and we were able to enjoy ourselves, looking at leisure and finding
many interesting and inspiring items.

One of the most creative artists is Moshe. He is over 92 years old and still creating.  I already posted about this incredible man. I just want to show you what he does to pistachio nuts.

Aren't these adorable?  They could make great woodland creatures.

These pitchers with an iris, will be given to each of the children who take part with the show.  I hope they'll like my surprise gift.

Afterwards, my husband and I invited the rest of the family to lunch at one of the most popular restaurants in Jaffa.

You can see the variety of salads served.  The reason we chose this place is that it's not
far from the museum and the vegetarians among us can get a good meal there. We had fun
and it was the nicest way to celebrate the New Year holiday.

I wish you all a pleasant weekend.  Blessings

  13. Dear Drora, the food in the restaurant looks delicious, yummy! Happy New Year to all members of your family, I think that they must be proud of you with your miniatures in the exhibit. I like the miniature gifts for the children, so colorful. It's great to hear from you :)! Hugs, Ilona

  15. Moshe is a great artist.

    You have a beautiful family.

  16. What fantastic creations that getleman makes! And how genrous ofyour to share your wonderful talents with the children Drora, your flower vases are onderful.

    Good food, good family good fun!


  17. So good to see you enjoying yourself together with the family - and I bet the juniour miniaturists will be over the moon with your beautiful pitchers. Moshe seems to have a young heart... his work is amazing, his nut people are funny and stunning at the same time. Did you know that similar figurines are typical for Christmas traditions in southern Germany? They're made of dried plums and nuts and because of the plums they're called "Zwetschgenmandl", they're supposed to be lucky charms. There's always one stall only selling loads of these plum guys in all variations at the famous Christmas Market of Nürnberg. In my opinion a good example that human creativity can work little wonders with nature's materials wherever they are to be found... ;O)


  18. dear Drora, I love what that man does with the pistachio nuts, I never saw this before :)
    You must have had a wonderful day with the whole family, it looks so cozyin
    the restaurant with all the delicious food !!
    What sweet presents you made for the children, iI think you made them very happy :)
