Great Spider-Man

Love this painting of Spider-Man.


Like so many things, this superhero is better in colors (and not just red)!


He’s also got two spiders on his chest, and as we know, two are better than one. 


I also appreciate how he stares down evil with the tilt of the head and those over-sized eyes. 


There is still plenty of evil in this world, and we need every superhero we can find to vanquish it!  😉

The Passover Menorah

It’s Passover this week, not Chanukah. 


So what’s with the menorah?


Well my friend, John Akkus (of Akkus Silver Touch), made this beautiful piece for me. 


I love the fine handiwork of copper, brass, crystals, Jewish symbols (Stars of David) and bold colors of this amazing menorah. 


John sells his art at the annual Suglarloaf Festivals in the Spring. 


I am so glad I found this wonderful menorah–it is beautiful all year long (through Chanukah and Passover). 


Thank you John and nice job!  😉

Theater And A Bagel

We stopped in at the Flying V Awesome-A-Thon yesterday. 


How can anything “awesome” not be good? 


Flying V mixes it up with the arts and culture. 


They combine theater with wrestling!


Essentially, this group tries to add adventure and combat to the more staid dramatic performances. 


Anything that brings theater more alive is definitely a good thing. 


We got to sit in on the event organizers doing a live podcast and could definitely see their enthusiasm for “Shakespeare and training” and becoming a success story.  


Anyway, they did have some snacks at the event, and this colorful bagel was definitely the standout. 😉

Out of Control Ice Cream

I’m not sure how you control yourself around this Alpaca Ice Cream.


But somehow I managed not to get any…this time.  


I promise!  


LOL


These are made with fresh hot waffles wrapped around your choice of ice cream and toppings. 


As you can see these are pretty big and scrumptious!


Anyway, they have a store in Rockville and I absolutely must stay away from it. 


Oh, maybe I just go in once for a taste.  😉

Three Ladies

Just a beautiful artist plate that I picked up in Israel. 

Loved the colors and simplicity of this. 

I got a “aged brass” (gold) plate stand for this.

Enjoy looking at this now in our living room and also remembering our wonderful trip, thank G-d. 

Also, I wonder if I know these three ladies from somewhere.  😉

Rainbow Cake :)

Rainbow cake is happy. 


Price is not bad for $3.99.


Calories are horrific at 750!


What happened to the broken blue part of the cake at the bottom–maybe that’s where another 50 calories got lopped off. 


Anyway, it’s Friday and I want to wish everyone a happy Rainbow Cake weekend and a Shabbat Shalom!
