Everything is Illuminated

Illuminated

Last night we celebrated the first night of Hanukkah with friends. We stuffed ourselves with latkes and the kids lit candles and we sang songs and spun dreidles. By some stroke of luck we managed to get ourselves invited out for nearly every night of Hanukkah which means I'll be making the salad for the next eight nights. Tonight we're off to my son's old preschool teacher's house for an evening of Hanukkah songs, more candles and more latkes.

Inspired by all of this glowy goodness I made an Etsy treasury last night filled with illuminated masterpieces. Feast your eyes! And happy Festival of Lights!

Those lucky people - you are a kick ass salad maker. If I were there, I'd bring the donuts. I'm really good at buying those!

p.s. i absolutely love how you have different labels for each of the transliterations.

I've seen the movie Everything is Illuminated. Bittersweet and humorous at times.
