Meet the Sponsors...

Every Month Moon to Moon has a lovely selection of sponsors hand picked from emails every month requesting a Slot. Many of them are from large corporations and high street chains, that I do not feel reflect Moon to Moon or its readers interests. So I turn down the larger companies to highlight the smaller businesses who I feel comfortable and proud to work with....

I am extremely grateful to all the sponsors, long and short term that have supported Moon to Moon, and so have decided to start a monthly post, highlighting these wonderful artists and small businesses that I am proud to work with.....

Beyond Marrakesh 

Beyond Marrakesh is a small company based outside of Marrakesh and run by the wonderfully lovely Danielle. Beyond Marrakesh is my longest standing sponsor and I have seen Danielle's beautiful shop and stunning Guest House (check it out here) develop. I have the most beautiful Handira from Danielle's and even my boyfriend is obsessed.... the warmest winter blanket ever!!!

Wedding blankets, a vast selection of beautiful Moroccan pouffes and Beni Ourain rugs make Beyond Marrakesh a one stop shop for beautiful Moroccan goodies....

Soul Makes

Soul Makes is another small business that has been a Moon to Moon Sponsor for the best part of 2013. I first became obsessed with Soul Makes after receiving a stunning Jasper necklace from the talented maker Mac back in Spring. I wear it everywhere and get so many comments on it!!
My current love and dream list item is their beautiful Night Hawk necklace .... Swoon!!
Cosmic Bath and Beauty

Cosmic Bath and Beauty is a small etsy shop that is run by the talented Michelle. Michelle hand makes all the beautiful, affordable, natural products in the shop and has grown quite a collection. 
Island Coconut body Butter is currently the product at the top of my wish list.....yum...
La Vie Boheme

  la Vie Boheme jewelery is another independent shop owned by jewelery maker  and all round design talent Alice. I selected Alice's shop as I love the romantic, antique feel of her jewelery.... being a total long earring fan i love her beautiful intricate earrings...

Uchizono Gallery
Last but by no means last is Uchizono Gallery.  Uchizono has become a bit of an obsession of mine recently, Shop owner Rachel really has the most beautiful collection of jewellery including a drool worthy collection of vintage Squash blossom necklaces. Check out the gallery here... but we warned you will be there for hours!!

If you would like to be a sponsor of Moon To Moon and feature in the next 'Meet the Sponsors' post, then email me at

Kinfauns: The Home of George Harrison and Patti Boyd

George Harrison painting his home in Kinfauns, 1967

Kinfauns was the bungalow home of Patti Smith and George Harrison, it has since been demolished and another property stands in it's place. These pictures are from 1967 when George and Patti painted the house in a huge psychedelic mural inspired by the book Tantrum Art.

One of My Favourite Photos of George Harrison: Sat in the lotus position in front of the fireplace at kinfawns

The Home of... Hannah and John...

I love this selection of Photographs from Kinfolks 11th issue. This Venice Beech home is lived in by Hannah and John and their children and really looks like such a warm, friendly place! I love the abundance of natural light and organic furniture.. and even the breeze block walls look good!!

Hannah and John run the Venice Beach branch of General Store an equally beautiful shop that has the most enviable triangle bookcases and natural home wears...

Wishing you all a Happy Easter with Plenty of yummy chocolate :)
