menorah 2

December 1, 2013

The Hanukkah menorah belonged to my mother’s father.

The mats below were made by Jordan in 1997 and Peyton in 2000.

My mom passed away December 10, 2004.

    I love to see the use of things passed along. It is like inviting the spirit for a visit.

    Candle light is beautiful in any celebration. I am sure the mats were a treasure and still are.

      They are adorable mats. The one Jordan made was created 2 months after Peyton was born. I absolutely love them.
