Guest Post: The Israel Museum

            My latest adventure has taken me to the Israel Museum located in Jerusalem.  The museum boasts an expansive collection ranging from ancient artifacts to modern art classics.  The grounds also have an extensive sculpture garden with a breathtaking view of the city.   Here are just a few snaps I was lucky enough to get:

            Stay tuned for next week’s posts as I explore some of the famed antique markets and design shops.  I hope you are enjoying a small taste of the Middle East!

  1. Thank you Madelaine for sharing a part of the world I have yet to have an opportunity to visit. I especially love the Arabic facade
