Hanukkah and Chruistmas gifts (2)

Hello dear readers,

After the long wait,  nothing was lost or damaged.  I am very happy to show you the beautiful gifts from two great blog friends and one beloved granddaughter.

The first parcel arrived on Sunday. It was brought home from the post office by my daughter Galia. it was the parcel from dear Birgit.  You can imagine both Birgit's and my relief at its arrival. Nilly, my other daughter, surprised me by coming to visit a little earlier.  A visit from both daughters at the same time was a cause for celebration.  We sat down and happily opened the parcel, drawing out treasure after treasure.  Then we had tea and devoured the marzipans before I had a chance to take photos.

Craft stuff and delicious"have-been" marzipans.


Solly:  Why didn't you stop them? The three of them shamelessly ate all the marzipans and left nothing for us.            

Baalatova:  While they did it,  I silently confiscated the beautiful glass robin. Like you, it also has wings.  You'll be able to have a lot of fun flying around together. We'll keep the robin.

 from the German Christmas shop of Käthe Wohlfahrt


On Monday, Faby's parcel Fabiola awaited me in my post box with the lovely handcrafted items by Faby.  I'm very sad that my own gifts for Faby haven't reached her yet.


Another parcel for Hanukkah, I received from my granddaughter Tali who for the time being lives with her husband and 3 little kids in a charming and very beautiful city, Utrecht in Holland.


I haven't started yet on a new BookNook. While waiting for the strict lockdown to be over, and having plenty of new lake shells from the Sea of Galilee, as well as seashells from our Mediterranean sea beach, I decided to make more shell items.  I also made some flowers again and used beads for 3 of the flower vases in the photo below.

I also used Birgit's craft supply to make a little tree.  The tree trunk is a Rosmarin branch and smells lovely.  I touched it up with a diluted brown acrylic paint, when dry, I stuck to the branched pieces of the ground green foam.


I wish you, my dear readers and friends, a nice weekend and good health with blessings.

Hehehe, I had to laugh when you told us about the marzipans: thankfully we can still see the empty box, wherein they travelled, as proof you've actually got them LOL! Oh that poor soul, Solly ;).
    Your Christmas robin is beautiful, Drora, Birgit knew you would love it and she spoiled you so much. Faby has sent you her lovely selfmadegifts too, enjoy.
    Ah, your granddaughter lives here in my country, in The Netherlands, how nice, she sent you also lovely miniatures, enjoy them too.
    Good to notice you're making plans for next mini projects, such as collecting shells again, making mini flowers and you've even made a mini tree with the help of Birgit's craft supplies, fantastic, keep on going, and stay busy!

But what matters is that it arrived safe and sound and with the most perfect timing, how lovely that your daughters were there to help you with the marzipan. And dear Solly should not be sad, Baalatova was very smart to take her hands on the robin, the two will have fun flying around together. And it's great that the craft stuff inspired you at once, the little tree turned out awesome and using this rosemary twig is a very smart idea.

  17. What wonderful gifts!! It is a bit stressful waiting for the gifts to arrive and worrying that they have been lost, because they represent so much hard work and joy to give. . I hope your present arrives soon. I love all your seashell creations and the tree.

  18. I was diagnosed a couple of years ago with COPD and I was beyond scared! My lung function test indicated 49% capacity. After having had the flu a year ago, the shortness of breath, coughing and chest pains continued even after being treated with antibiotics. I've been smoking two packs a day for 36 years. Being born without a sternum caused my ribs to be curled in just one inch away from my spine, resulting in underdeveloped lungs. At age 34 I had surgery and it was fixed. Unfortunately my smoking just caused more damage to my already under developed lungs. The problem was that I enjoyed smoking and don't want to give up! Have tried twice before and nearly went crazy and don't want to go through that again. I saw the fear in my husband and children's eyes when I told them about my condition then they started to find a solution on their own to help my condition.I am a 47 now who was diagnosed with COPD emphysema which I know was from my years of smoking. I started smoking in school when smoking was socially acceptable.. It was not known then how dangerous cigarettes were for us, and it seemed everybody smoked it. On searching, internet we saw a testimony of a brother, Nathaniel, how he was also cured of COPD lungs. By a doctor Akhigbe and the brother also wrote the doctor contact on the testimony. I contacted the doctor I was writing to the doctor and my husband was writing to him too. The doctor told us what to do and the next week I received the herbal medicine and the following instruction. It was really unbelievable after I finished the medicine. Dr Akhigbe herbal medicine is supernatural, that is how I was able to get rid of my COPD lung condition through the help of  Dr Akhigbe with his  herbal medicine cure. Here is his email   [drrealakhigbe@gmail.com}   He has the right herbal formula to help you get rid and repair any lung conditions and other diseases, his medicine will cure you completely and permanently with his natural organic herbs,We received the medicine through courier delivery service. I wish anybody who starts smoking at a young age would realize what will eventually happen to their bodies if they continue that vile habit throughout their life. It's a lesson I learned and never to forget in my life now I promise my God myself and my family never to smoke again.. All thanks to doctor  Akhigbe, the real herbalist doctor with natural herbs who have cured different people with their different problem.
    God bless you Dr Akhigbe for your good hand work on my life.  

  19. My health was horrible before I decided to try the Protocol Of taking Dr. Omola pure herbal mixture. I felt there was no hope for my health and I was to try the Protocol, thinking it wouldn’t work because I have visited so many hospital but same result. However, I was convinced by a Instagram friend to try the herbal medicine because I wanted to get rid of Herpes virus. The herbal mixture that was given to me was really quick and easy to take, within 2 week I was fully cured from Herpes. The herbal medicine really work and I will like to share this great doctor contact with you all email him dr.omolaherbalhome@gmail.com or WhatsApp +2348118116254 you won't regret it, I promise.

IS CARD CASH LEGIT has been the question on everyone's mind. But I am here to inform you today that , programmed ATM debit and master cards have been technically made by the Novelty Group Of Hackers to facilitate living and thus Make everyone rich which is the primary goal.

  23. I WANT TO USE THIS OPPORTUNITY  TO SAY A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO Dr Ogberaese, My name is Leonard Shirin i am so happy to share this testimony on how Dr.Ogberaese  healed me from genital herpes. i was detected with genital herpes around 10th may 2019, and ever since that day i have been looking for a way to end this virus from my body, but the more i try, the more i was told there was no solution. Few months ago i saw a testimony of some people on how Dr Ogberaese   cure them from HERPES VIRUS, i also heard about it on media when a young lady also gave her testimony saying Dr Ogberaese cured her oral herpes. I was left with no other hope than to contact Dr Ogberaese and give him a try. I contacted him  and told him what i was going through. He said he could heal me, that he is going to send me a herbal medicine and He sent the medicine as he promised. I took this herbal medicine for 1 week and it was obvious that his medicine was for real, because the herpes started clearing from my body. Later at  the 2 week, i went for medical check up and i was surprised when my doctor told me he found no trace of the virus in me again. At first when he told me, i was so shock and still did not believed until he gave me my test result. to make my story short i am now free from herpes, after many months of sorrow and my sickness is gone, i thank God for leading me to this man, and i want to also lead you to him if you have any illness like HIV, HPV, hepatitis B, asthma, cancer, Diabetes, COLD SCORE,TOOTH ACHE  FIBROID and AUTISM.  You can email him on drogberaese54@gmail.com or whats-app  him on +2348073818653.  visit him on his website:  https://dr-ogberaese-herbal-home.jimdosite.com
