Chanukah Party, fine art print for sale
Tonight marks the first night of Chanukah, and if this holiday crept up suddenly on you and you are unprepared have no fear. This traditional celebration lasts eight nights so you still have a full week to order presents and decorations for your holiday table. Many Jewish people make a bigger deal out of the last night when all eight candles light the menorah. Some interfaith families combine Christmas and Chanukah celebrations. Tomorrow is the United States postal deadline for priority mail shipping to receive by Saturday December 24th so be sure to fill your virtual shopping cart with some great finds for gifts or your home.
White Porcelain Menorah
By Ceramic Artist Celeste Welch
This one of a kind, very special Hanukkah candelabra has been beautifully designed, sculpted and signed by the artist.  The glaze finish on this piece is a glossy white which catches the light and reflects it beautifully.This menorah has an heirloom quality and will be cherished and enjoyed for years to come. The copyrighted image on this hand crafted sculpture from renowned ceramic artist Celeste Welch has adorned living areas across the country and has been featured in the giftshops of both the Hirshhorn Museum in (Washington, DC) and the LA Museum of Modern Art.


A great gift appropriate for people of all ages are these dreidel soaps! They are about 2 inches wide and about 2 inches tall. They would be great for your decor, kids' bath time or for an unusual Hanukkah hostess gift!


Iced Gingerbread Chanukah Cookies
A delightful set of Hanukkah cookies will make the Festival of Lights even brighter! Order a set of delicious gingerbread cookies iced in pale blue, gold, and white almond royal icing, accented with glittering sugar! This set includes cookie menorahs, Torahs, dreidels, and Stars of David. All cookies are made fresh to order and decorated by hand.The cookies are wrapped in cello bags and safely nestled in tissue and all tied up in a recyclable box. This is a great gift to have shipped direct to that faraway grandchild.

Another great gift idea are candles! What ideas do you have?
