A few years back I got this candle holder that I absolutely love. It has held candles of many colors and 'lived' in many spots around my house. At our other house, it usually resided in the fireplace. I used it for tall pillar candles that smoked and sputtered almost as much as a hearth fire would have. Here at this house my candles are more demure because of the many little people that visit me. They simulate flame with a flickering light. They still look lovely on a dark fall evening but something is lacking. I miss those wild flames and the smell of melting wax.
