Remember how I said I didn't collect anything? Well I guess I lied. I collect menorahs. I didn't think about them since I just put them out during Hanukkah. I was cleaning out the holiday shelf and found 2 of my 5 menorahs. The rest are at Dad's, so I'll have to bring them over before the first day of Hanukkah. Plus I have to figure out where to put them. This is why my collection is in boxes. No room.
But ever year since I started really celebrating Hanukkah I buy another menorah. So which one will I buy this year?
I like this traditional menorah. I like the clean lines and the fact that it doesn't look like any other one I have.
Or how about this one to commemorate our wedding? It's a little campy for me, but it would make me smile each time I pulled it out.
Or this oil one would be very traditional. I don't know though. It could get messy.
I'm ambivalent on this one. I like how it looks like art and not a menorah. But I want a menorah to be a menorah. I really don't like the $200 price tag!
Honestly I tend to wait til after Hanukkah and buy one on sale. When I get the whole collection in one spot, I'll show what I've got.


  1. The first one is gorgeous, but the wedding one is just too entertaining.

    I can kinda understand how you feel about wanting a new one every time the holiday comes around. My Mother has to get a new nativity set every year.

  2. I love the first one!!
    But, you're right - the second one would make you laugh over and over every time you pulled it out.

    I think Menorahs are really pretty - what a great thing to collect!


Shiny! I love comments.
