What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Light, Wisdom, and Divine Inspiration


Though we are not Jewish, Beloved and I have long talked about getting ourselves a Menorah. We love the design and the tradition and the symbolism, and we’ve spent enough time in Jewish households that we feel like it’s part of our tradition, too. Since Hanukkah officially begins tomorrow evening, I thought it was a good time to share with you some of the lovely, creative, unexpected Menorah designs I’ve come across in my travels.

I wish everyone a Gut Yontiff!

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  1. Glad I don’t have to choose. All are very artistic and pretty and probably more appropriate than any thing we do.

  2. There are several nice ones, but I like the one as a tree mostly, it is really beautiful Donna 😀

  3. I loved almost all of these. I’m not Jewish either but I’d love several of these designs if they were tweaked into being secular candelabra.
