Cabin Fever....

As the days get shorter and the nights draw in I find myself finally feeling comfortable in my skin again. I am not a big hot weather person nor am I a fan of the summers revealing clothing (on me) and how exposed it makes me feel. So when Autumn arrives along with the chunky cardigans, boots and scarves I feel finally at peace. But I also find myself craving the smell, taste and sight of the forest, and around this time of year my Pinterest account gets full of the most beautiful A-frame houses. So whilst sat curled up in a blanket (and sipping a fine Single malt), I thought I would share a selection with you guys.

Hope you are enjoying the season, what ever it may be in your part of the world xx

The 'Third Eye Hat" from HoneyWood and Lone Hawk

These stunning "third eye" hats are the result of a collaboration between Lone hawk hats and Honeywood vintage..... and I don't know about you but I just adore them!

I have never really been a confident hat wearer but my aim for this winter is to finally pluck up the courage to rock a hat ..... I may have found the perfect one to help me on my way. Each hat is a one off, having been handmade and hand embroidered by the talented duo.....

These beauties, plus many more stunning designs, are available online through both Lone Hawk hats and the fabulous Honeywood Vintage

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 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

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
