AKD IN WINTER WONDERLAND

The urge to hibernate is primal.

In the 19th century when researchers discovered that French peasants living in the Alps curled up together and went to sleep for the winter, waking each day only to eat the smallest amount of bread, it made a great amount of sense to many people.

Sadly these days none of us can literally huddle under our cozy bed covers for the next three months!

So to help prepare for the transition from the warm sanctuary of slumber and into the cold veil of darkness in the mornings to come, we have been hunting and gathering a few winter luxuries in preparation for taking the edge off the chill factor and to feeling a bit fabulous rain, hail or shine!

Make this winter your wonderland!

TO INDULGE

Burn incense to ignite the allure of wafted scented smoke from the hand-cast porcelain dome, or strike a match to a candle and transform the 'Censer' into a brass torch that emits a soft glow during the long dark evenings.
