Christmas Candle Carousel

For me a Kerzenkarussel or candle-carousel is like a small, edited and modern version of a Christmas Pyramid. I find both these the candle-powered carousels so pretty and enchanting that I wanted to do a post on them.  Because the elaborate, wooden Christmas Pyramid doesn’t go with my Diplo Home style, I’ve been looking for a modern [read more]
