I'd often thought how nice it would be to have my own website, a place to present my handcrafted items - from Victorian photo albums and miscellaneous gifts for the bride, to handmade olive branch wreaths designed to bring the nature of Israel into your home. Although these items will be offered soon, this site has come into being as a result of yet another craft - photography.
Looking back I realize that photography was one of my first loves. I envisioned taking pictures and writing inspirational sayings on them but never imagined that more than 20 years later that's exactly what I would be doing.
The journey from Medford, Massachusetts in the USA to Moshav Bustan HaGalil in the northern part of Israel has been quite an adventure. My life and this website will never be the same.
Entitled 'The Nisanit Series', these original photographs were taken in the garden of our home in Nisanit, a community which once stood in the northern Gaza Strip. This is what remains of our little oasis.
I am grateful that through these photographs I have been given the opportunity to take from the past and look to the future.
We invite you to watch the slideshow and walk with us through our garden, down the stone paths lined with roses to where we once sat under the flowering bougainvillea, enjoying the first fruits of our apple and pomegranate trees.
