after that, it goes back on the china cabinet for another 364 days!
it manages to gather quite a bit of dust during the year and the top is a little white-ish as a result!
we bought it at a shop in underground atlanta back in 1994 when we were living in georgia. it was one of those amazing candle places, where they dip and dip and dip and layer all the coloured wax on, then peel it back to craft the wonderful shapes and effect.
it's been burning every christmas day since 1995 and we gave it an extra outing last saturday night at our christmas party.
i don't think it'll ever burn out!
