Its Time to Cut Your Magnolia Trees!

No Comments 31 March 2010

by Claudia Bildirici

Depending on the weather each year, the Magnolia tree starts to bud.

At that time, you can cut these buds to display at your holiday table.

The branch is very thick, so be careful and make sure you have good cutters. If it has flowered, than it is too late to cut it!

1-Place the branch when it is just a BUD  in warm water.

Not a vase just yet!

2-In approximately one week it will bloom indoors.

3-Wow! You will love the results. Float them in a bowl or a heavy vase.This heavy branch may tip so use rocks at the base.

If its not your tree, please ask permission. I’m not responsible for any arrests made!

By the way, my tree is off limits! Enjoy. Happy Holiday.

After Passover, you can enjoy my  homemade biscotti. Check out  http://www.lottiebiscotti.com/.

Custom Mosaic Gifts!

My friend Hannah is one of the most talented girls I know! She makes bows for all of our daughters, bakes Challah every week and she has one really phenomenal talent that I just HAD to share with you all: She creates gorgeous mosaic gifts! It started as a hobby when we were kids: we all took art classes together. One summer we did mosaics instead of painting. I stuck with the painting and haven’t made a cent! She stuck with the Mosaics and has turned it into a career!

She makes everything from Shabbat trays, monogramed backgammon sets, picture frames, even a menorah!

Her pieces are so beautiful:





 

I really cant believe how good she is! The trays, the backgammon sets! Monogrammed! I die.

I am ordering a monogramed backgammon set for my living room stat. I already have an adorable picture frame with my baby’s name that Hannah gave me as a baby gift!

Her prices range from $30 for a small picture frame to Shabbat trays at $175, Monogramed trays start at $225.

Email her at mailto:mosaicsbyhannah@gmail.com to order.

Happy Passover! I bet Hannah makes one killer Matzah tray!!!
