Holy hanukkiah, Batman!

I think I just found my new menorah.

I love your Barbie Deam House tag.

Haha. The title is too funny. A long time ago my sister and I were watching the TLC show "What Not to Wear" and the fashion victim man went into a typical men's dress store. When he saw a wall full of sweaters he announced "Holy lot of colors, Batman!" My sister and I still crack up about that!

Would it be bad to want it on my table - just because?!

Katie said...

That's really awesome. Is it really a menorah? Because I'm not Jewish but I want it. Is that wrong somehow?

Raina said...

No, it's not a menorah. It justs happens to hold the right number of candles and look quite fabulous doing so.

A few years ago, I co-opted a great Pottery Barn candle holder for the same purpose. ;)

I love any kind of stick or branchy thing... My mom used to fill giant vases in the corner with branches and THEN SHE WOULD STICK FAKE FLOWERS TO THE LITTLE KNOBS ON THE BRANCHES. Sorry for yelling, but it was warranted.

I wonder if I'm ever going to get over that.

Raina said...

That's OK, Erin. It sounds very traumatic and psychologically damaging. Kinda like my mom and home decor parties.

Hot damn - that is gorgeous...though hmmm - in my house the boys might turn it into a weapon and not appreciate the deliciousness.

I'm having a "Hitchcockian" moment Raina. I opened that very same West Elm catalog today and that branch jumped out at me. The first thing I did was count the number of candles...BINGO...#9...found my new Menorah!

Raina said...

Yay, NKP! Great Heeb minds think alike.

I have a menorah that looks very much like that! I got it from the Jewish Museum shop. I can't wait to use it this year!!
