Hookahs and gifts

 Hello dear readers,

I hope everybody enjoyed a lovely seasonal holiday and that we are all back to our usual activities.

Many people who come to the daycare center are of Moroccan descent. I made and taught how to make these simple hookahs that will be part of a Moroccan-style tiny corner.  All the hookahs are made from beads and metal jewelry findings found in my stash.

I received wonderful gifts for Hanukkah and Christmas, too many to show in one post.  I'll show some here and in the following posts.  

Gifts from Ricardo. Arrived by surprise exactly in time for Hanukkah.

Everything you see in the photos was made by Ricardo himself, including the little box by the coffee maker, filled with real coffee. Thank you so much dear Ricardo for your thoughtful, very generous gifts, and thank you for being my friend.

Another lovely gift came from a friend of my daughter Galia, who admired my work in miniature.  It's an embroidery kit.  It's too large for a miniature but I'm happy with the canvas which will be used to make a small Orientale carpet to go with a hookah.

I wish you all a lovely week with blessings.

  3. great gifts and the hookahs look wonderful.

  4. Las cachimbas están muy conseguidas.
    Los regalos son preciosos.

  5. Your hookahs look gorgeous - and what a clever way to create them. It's so nice that you're inspiring your "pupils" with something familiar from their culture.

    And such lovely gifts from Ricardo, yes, he is the most generous friend. How sweet of your daughter to spoil you with this embroidery kit and what a clever idea how to use it. I only wish my package would finally arrive... *deepsigh*... but as it's still less than 3 months we can still have hope... *evendeepersigh*


  6. The hookahs look great and thank you for showing how to make them! I have only made one attempt on making one and it took me ages to figure out how to do it. You have received lovely gifts, especially the coffee maker with the box.

  7. lindos trabajos y lindos regalos, te felicito!

  8. Great hookahs! and gorgeous gifts, enjoy them 😍
