At Winter’s Gate

Featuring FINCA for B&B Collaboration

In November, at winter’s gate, the stars are brittle.
The sun is a sometime friend and the world has
tucked her children in, with a kiss on their heads,
till spring.

-Cynthia Rylant

I’ve said before that I don’t miss all of the cold and snow we would get when I lived in Michigan. It was fine if you could stay indoors by a cozy fire but that didn’t happen often because of this thing called work. It’s still so funny to me how things here in the south come to a stand still at the mention of the “S” word. I get it, they have little to no experience with it so it’s a big deal…but it’s still funny for someone who grew up in Michigan where heading out in 5-6 inches of snow was the norm. We didn’t start watching for school closures until the forecast called for 8 or more since we lived in the country. Then all of the dirt roads and drifting snow became a problem for cars and buses alike. I do miss it though, the sound of it falling in the quiet of the evening, they way it captured the glow of Christmas lights. It seems a bit sad knowing there a people who haven’t, and won’t ever, experience that. So for the next three month, forgive me if sentimental ramblings of snow, winter and Christmases past find their way into my writings!

Today I am featuring FINCA, who graciously shared a few items that I used with the Christmas Fence they created in collaboration with Atelier Burgundy. Items include the Nutcracker Set and the Bronze Hanging Bells. You should definitely go check out FINCA’s mainstore where there are beautiful things for indoors and a whole area of landscaping items as well.

Just a shout out to B&B Collaboration, a group of designers and bloggers taking part in a new way of matching creators and bloggers to showcase items old and new. Contact Heavenly Villa, owner of Shutter Field to learn more.

Stay warm!
