Spring/Summer 2011

It's that time of year........NEW clothes whhoooooo hooooooo.

This is our concertina brochure for our wholesale customers.

I wont say too much else just show you lots of pretty pictures.

My favourite is the Reversible Parade Dress a parade of Belle & Boo children on one side and lots of Boo's on the other.

Our Blue Princess Dress perfect for spinning, lined with our repeat Belle & Boo fabric.

A pretty Boo White Top lined with Belle & Boo's (the denim shorts are to follow shortly)

& by popular demand we are bringing back our Boo Pinny.

All items come carefully wrapped in tissue with a special dress up Belle postcard. We only have a small amount of each item and once they have gone they have gone, so don't delay get yours today!

We have been lucky enough to have had some press about them already.

& don't forget it is Mothers Day this Sunday (in the UK)

A little bit of Autumn in Spring

At last we have the full set of season cushions back in stock, yiiippeee I have missed seeing them all together. To celebrate this and the arrival of spring we are offering our autumn cushion for a limited time only for £34 (just over 20% OFF)
If you miss the offer don't worry we have a permanent offer which allows you to go mad and buy all 4 and save a whooping £37.

I have been sent the most amount of lovely emails and photos lately, here are just a few pictures of Belle & Boo in autumnal Australia.

I have had a super couple of days, my mum came to stay and I took her to the Museum of Childhood, as we have a very interesting dolls house, that we wanted to talk to them about (more about that later) I always take LOADS of photos when I go there, but these were my favourite 2 toys this trip, especially Christopher Robin and friends.

Then yesterday we went to the London Coliseum for a Good House Keeping 'Swan Lake' offer.

First we had a talk from the orchestra, the make up and costumn artists, followed by a fascinating half hour where we were allowed to watch the ballerinas rehearsing. Next a delicious lunch and then great seats for the matinee performance. It was so magical, at one point I swear in turned into a moving Degas painting. We ended the day with warm scones in Bill's yum.

I had a lovely weekend, first to 'Pick Me Up' at Somerset House, where the open studio was Anthony Burrill

and then to the Primrose Bakery for cupcakes and pink lemonade.

I highly recommend both!

Boo Bags

At last we have some tote bags back in the shops. We love these bags they are screen printed and sewn here in the UK. They are strong, wash well and are just really good quality. All the new bags feature Boo, I think they would be perfect for that egg hunt on Easter morning.
We have a big Boo bag.

& a small boo bag.

Also my favourite, this repeat pattern Boo bag.

All the bags are beautifully packaged and come with a free surprise badge.

HOWEVER how about buying one of these gorgeous wooden Boo brooches to go with a bag?

These arrived cut and etched from good quality plywood and then I was let loose on them, attaching brooch backs and varnashing and lots of fun with the packaging, I love packaging!

I think they are a brilliant price at just £5 the perfect Easter present.

Shown here on our new spring blouse (available at the end of this week)

I have had a couple of fun days out lately, first a quick trip to sunny Brighton.

& then my yearly trip to the AAF it is such a great day out. We took my friends little girl and had thought she might be bored but there was so much for her to look at and do and did anyone else notice there were the most amount of dogs there this year?!

The best bit was when Greta aged 2 and a half pointed at an abstract painting and said 'look Jackson pollock' !!! afterwards we went next door to the childrens Zoo, I have never been before it's great, really well maintained and thought out, I highly recommend it.

Lastly a BIG thank you to Cathy for featuring a review of 'Bubbles Before Bed' in the fabulous Anorak magazine.

oohhhh lastly, lastly I just noticed our Etsy sales are at 9999.

I wonder who will be the lucky 10,000 customer?
