    I’ve never actually seen them being made. Wonder how smelly it gets.

      I think with the original ingredients it would have been pretty stinky. I think me having no sense of smell would have its advantages ;-)

    I remember him, he is a great story teller, very fascinating. I almost bought some candles, but there was a warning… they smoke… (I should have bought them any way, for my son, to use in the backyard, when they sit out at night)
    Wonderful picture.
    Also from the girl with the pigs :)
    I read that you went to school ‘next door’, what a place to visit. I think I would go many times, just to see, how things were made in those days.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

      Smoking candles inside is a bit of a problem. Some substandard oil in and oil burner has caused problems in my house :-/

      He was quite a story teller, I can almost imagine him living in those times and coming forward in time to tell us about it.

      In my school years I visited often. The museum is very much improved since those days :-)

    Yes, this I remember well, too. He had fun talking to Elaine and her dog. :)
