Wow...all of these are super. I especially like the warm glow of the menorah on the fourth night. Sadly, I don't have the privilege of an Ikea. Wish there was one close by.

Very pretty! Love those candles

Those candle shots really appeal to me. I too love IKEA, but trying not to spend $$ so I have to steer clear.
And yes I did beat you to the post. Woke up at 4:30 today (on a freakin' Sunday). Grrrrrr. Have a great day today Tamar.

Great shots, a little different take on this season for me. Your Menorah and candles are wonderful. The door does indeed have character I love the sharply defined shadows that our low sun this time of year makes.
IKEA is wonderful, I've never bought anything there but I always take my camera.

It's always an adventure for me coming here. I get to savor aspects of your Jewish heritage that are not a part of my Christian Christmas. I love the door and stripes.

The dreidels look fun! Makes me want to give em a spin! The candles have been so comforting to look at all week. And that door is fabulous! Love the rustic look of it.

Love seeing your pretty, lit Hanukkah candles! The door shot is really nice - I love that there's so much interesting architecture and detailing to look at as we walk around our neighborhoods!

But your life is all about Chanukah & all it means - so your decorations ARE standard! :)
I love IKEA too, but it's always so crazy, busy I don't know how you could ever relax there??

Great photos this week! I love the Hanukkah decorations.

I adore the dreidels - very festive and the reflections from the menorah works perfectly.

I WISH we had an Ikea - not sure why because I have more than enough furniture and stuff in my house it has spilled into the garage and attic - so perhaps for inspiration.

Very nice set. I really liked the Striped shot of the candles and also the Favorite Things shot from Ikea (very interesting piece).

I really think you SHOULD move into Ikea : ) A cool girl like you could only make the place BETTER!

I am glad you are a teacher. I was thinking of you on Friday and praying for you and your class!

Your candles are gorgeous. Happy 4th night. Love to you.

Ikea - a dangerous store (can't help spending money there!)

I have no favorite. Each one is so so beautiful and dear to my heart. Fantastic job.

Your Menorah candles are so pretty

I love the candle shots... so pretty!

I know what you mean about IKEA. :) The only thing is with the IKEA here, it gets so crowded and busy that sometimes I can't wait to just be over and done with the shopping and leave.

These are great! I do love the festive look of the front door. Your sparkly shot is wonderful!

Emily S said... {Reply}

What a pretty menorah! IKEA...if only fewer people were there when I was there I'd be able to tolerate it more. I'm so not a crowd person!

Katie said... {Reply}

These are all beautiful! I love that card, it is really funny!

I love Ikea too, but I don't get there nearly as often as I'd like (but my wallet and small and crowded apartment thank me for that!)
