Molly Costello's Homolumionous Calendar 2019



With 2019 looming I thought it might be a nice idea to do a series on Independant artists that have calendars coming out for the year ahead, so if like me you are totally unorganised and rely on one to help you manage your life, at least you will be looking at a thing of beauty!!

This weeks calendar is Molly Costello's HOMOLUMINOUS calendar. So what I hear you ask is Homoluminous, Molly explains....

"HOMOLUMINOUS explores the ways we are emerging into a new type of human community, one that is glowing, connected, and more equipped than ever to achieve collective liberation. By practicing empathy, gratitude, grief rituals, growing our food, showing up for each others struggles and honoring the power of our imagination, we come to realize that we are the resilient body that our ancestors dreamed up to heal this world. We are the living light. We are HOMOLUMINOUS."




HOMOLUMINOUS 2019 Calendar's are now live!!✨You are now able to pre-order copies for yourself on Molly's website. 

$2 from each calendar will be donated to Chicago Community Bond Fund  It is likely to be a small batch so make sure you get in quickly if you want one!




To purchase the Calendar , and see more of Molly's beautiful work, including my favourite print below,  you can visit her webpage Mollycostello.com or find her on Instagram

There will also be a ltd number of Tapestries to accompany the calendar available in Mollys shop over the next month (see below)

Bedding : Garbo & friends

Garbo & Friends


How beautiful is this bedding from Swedish Brand Garbo and Friends? Although predominantly a children's bedding company the good news is that the Stockholm based company also produce most of the prints, including the Fauna print in the top picture, in adult sizes too!

Their sheets are a luxurious blend of 60% linen and 40% cotton, perfect for delicate skin, warm on winter and cool in summer.

Garbo and Friends latest offering is their woodlands set, covered in beautiful little oak leaves, acorns and a few hidden apples..... just like sleeping in the tree tops.

You can find Garbo & friends via their website, they are also on Instagram

One of Stephens famous Raw Cheesecakes
The Cakes in Stephens words.....

This journey began on Valentine’s Day of 2014. My wife, Tracy had a vision of a rainbow raw vegan cheesecake, and I knew that making her one would be the perfect way to celebrate our love.


Creating that first cake was a mind expanding process, as colors made from scratch with organic fruit and herbs emerged more vividly than I had imagined possible. She was thrilled when I presented her my rainbow love cake, and when we shared images of it with our community the response made it clear that I was onto something. A new desire was born within to create food that was art.

Poppy and Someday.... Eye of Ra..... Isis

Isis: The eye of Ra by Poppy and Someday
I am not big on make up, mainly because I am really unconfident at applying it so tend to shy away from anything other than a splodge of mascara (that ends up smeared across my face because i forgot it was there) but I am getting to the point where actually I would like to not look like a zombie in photographs and maybe make a bit of effort.

And so maybe it is perfectly timed that Poppy and Someday and Eagle Eye Healing have teamed up to make what must be the most beautiful make up I have ever seen..... Isis!

Isis our first Eyeshadow and is Lapis Lazuli and Pyrite. Associated with the third eye chakra, the Lapis Lazuli can be traced back to ancient Egypt where royalty believed in its power to stimulate openness to the spirit world and infinite possibilities of the imagination.


Isis is the first product from the new line Eye of Ra, a collaboration between Kari Jansen (Poppy and Someday) and Jessi Campbell (Eagle Eye Healing)......This ceremonial make up is ideal for opening your third eye and tuning in to your intuition. 

Composed of powdered Pyrite and Lapis Lazuli, this eye shadow can be worn soft or made darker with a little water or natural primer.  
The brass container is handmade by Peter Goebel, The Lapis Lazuli inlay and custom eye design on the lid by Moon Pi. Comes with handmade little brass spoon and a scroll with instructions.

Bumper sticker love.....

I brake for wildflowers bumper sticker by Maria Schoettler

I don't (yet) drive, but in September I will resume my driving lessons!!!!

I am embarrassed to say I have been learning on and off for 20 years..... yes 20!!! I really am THAT bad and that nervous behind the wheel.

I have spent a lot of the last 20 years dreaming about my dream car (a red and white Citroen 2cv Dolly... a car I have wanted since I was about 5), the tartan throw that will be covering the back seat, the hours I will spend cruising to Low Rider by War..... it will be awesome..... and these are the two bumper stickers (along with my National Trust membership) I am going to decorate my baby with.... The 'I brake for wildflowers' sticker is from Maria Schoettler and is just the cutest, the below 2 Jimi Hendrix Bumper stickers are available on Ebay or Amazon

Hopefully this little dream will give me motivation, if not .... I will just have to get a greenhouse to pimp up :)

You can see more of Maria's beautiful work via her instagram @maria_schoettler and more Car pictures on Moon to Moon here
