My colorful event

Hi dear friends
On Saturday, I was with my twin sister : Havatzelet hHaramati  in her house, we held an event called in Israel "open house".

              Do not ask me who is who, lol

It happens twice a year, Rosh Hashanah (new year) and Passover, in many places in Israel.,
To exhibit and sell our art.
Like many places in the world, before the holidays, people like to spend money , lol.
Most of the "houses" invite guest artists to introduce their art.
My dear sister, (my best friend) invited me to show my jewelry.
The weather was wonderful, the garden looked great, everything is blooming, including the Amazing special purple wisteria.


 We  both make art.
Her knitted are great, her hand burning  and painted wood are fabulous  and her colors painting on wood are happy.
Is it coincidence that we both make art?  I Do not know....
We grew up in eclectic House, very colorful, our mother was very creative, Which is really not surprising that our works are colorful, optimistic and happy.
My mother's garden:

 The event was very happy, lots of people came, this event pretty exhausting, but fun :)
The photographer of the event is my wonderful husband, Leon :

You can visit my shop , and enjoy the colors of spring.


On this occasion   I want to introduce to you - my good friend, who came to visit me on this event, her name is Sari Glassman - she is  a Glass Artist, her beads are colorful and happy, I love them.

I recommend you to visit her shop.

I wish you all the best :)
Happy Passover.

NALAGA'AT (in Hebrew) - Touch Please

A month ago, I went  through one of the more exciting experiences I had.
At the Jaffa port in Tel Aviv, there is a   deaf - blind center called  Nalaga'at.

A group comprised of people who are both deaf and blind and therefore only know to communicate on a one-to-one basis with the help of personal tactile-sign language interpreters.
In the center there are 2 restaurants and a theater.
One restaurant is in the foyer, the other restaurant which is in a separate space is called  BLACKOUT  - A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE  of dinning in the dark escorted by blind waiters.
" When the eyes do not engage in the eating process, one’s ability to taste and smell food sharpens. There is so much to be “seen” when eyes are closed…" says the blind. 
Once in a lifetime experience.
We went  to "Not by Bread Alone" show.
"if there is not hand-shake I do not know you exist"  that was the opening sentence of a deaf-blind actor.
I had tears in my eyes, so simple so true.
Throughout the play, the actors  (some of them) talk about the moments of happiness, their dreams and memories, love and passion.
They play, dance, move, I sat transfixed at the sight of the signs with a touch of each other. I was fascinated, from the way they communicate.
During the show we hear a drum beat used to sign players to change a scene. They feel the vibrations of the drum  and I felt my  heartbeats.
They give us their feelings with a lot of humor, and remove any confusion .
 At the end of the play the audience is invited to go onstage -After several minutes of confusion, we got on stage, and with lots of love, we shook hands.
I left the show, very excited,  with  appreciation to these people, and understanding that their needs are no different from  our needs,  with an  attention to things around me.
I was thrilled from this experience - Thanks with love .


In my world
I see a colorful blossoms,  I hear the birds chirping and smell the jasmine flower, the spring is here. 
What a great pleasure.

Enjoy the every moment of the Spring  ♥ ♩ ♭ ♫ ♪ ♥

have a wonderful week
