Hello dear readers,
A few weeks before celebrating the 8 days of Hanukkah, Kids in the kindergartens all over the country make menorahs to bring home to their proud mothers.
These menorahs are usually a piece of long wood with nine round candle containers glued or nailed on it (with teachers' help). Day 1, the server candle, called the SHAMASH is lit and when it burns it is used for lighting the first candle. On day 2, the server candle is lit and then it lits two candles and so on until we reach the last day 8 when the server lits all the 8 remaining candles The server candle always stands higher or apart from the r
And why all this information? It's the time craft stores carry small candle containers of various shapes and materials in packets of 9 pieces and these are very useful for miniatures. Last year I bought metal containers which are in reality jewelry findings. I made my hanging flower baskets from them.
Still working on the opposite wall of my Book Nook project. I'm taking things slow and easy.
Blessings and good wishes to all. Stay safe and healthy!
