Happy Hanukkah with Treasure


Made by Heather from niftyknits, This little cute Meerkat is traveling in a world and has arrived to Jerusalem!

Started his journey and the UK, living la vida loca with Arosha and calming his nerves with Oowl, the globetrotting meerkat has arrived to our home to celebrate Hanukkah with us "us" – hubby, me and our 5 cats).

After his long journey, Treasure wanted to take a nap on the large bed. The house cats came to say hello and smell the guest traveling the big wide world.

Finally, the guest meerkat to the cats had cuddled together for a nap.

In the evening, it was time to light the Hanukkah candles and the Shabbat candles. The little meerkat was much exited to see all the lights shining in our window.

After lighting the candles, Treasure checked the table, set will all the tempting dishes of Hanukkah. Traditionally all the Hanukkah food is fried, but little Treasure wanted to keep his figure, so he nibbled from the non- traditional brioche (which apparently had the least calories).

After having a good time at dinner, it was time to do some work. Treasure sat in my beading tray and watched me finish the gift that he will carry around to world and back home to Niftyknits.
