to market to market

Friday in Tel Aviv. Warm clear sunny day and hours and hours to stroll around leisurly- what could be better. Went with Shanee windowshopping-,real shopping and tasting.

The Carmel market in Tel Aviv has been in the same place for ever- since Tel Aviv stated about 100 years ago- most of the vendors are generations of the same families. The amount of fruit and veggies are mindboggling. All sparkling like jewels- cherries- apricots,peached,and tomatos to name a few.

Here are a few pics of quantity:




cherries,bakalava and candy....

obviously I have some serious sugar issues!

Onto rings: am still in love with rough stones: diamonds,aquamarines,tourmalines.....













and this little stone- i stared at it vertically for over a year, not turning it in the obvious direction- gets the "duh" award"







and on a completely different note: my kitty cant resist hanging out in my bra. The minute it is off, she has to hop in it. Really odd. i find her sometimes with her little arms through the straps!!



that's all from the Holy land...

Those markets look wonderful. Great jewelry as always and the "cat in the bra" is priceless.
