Autumn/Winter Collection


I went for a walk last night and had to admit Autumn has definitely arrived, which made me a little bit sad as I was still waiting for summer!
However that does mean we can launch our new Autumn/Winter clothing collection which is very exciting. We were Very, very lucky to have a photo shoot with amazing photographer Lucy Woodrow, I think she has captured the Belle & Boo feel exactly. These pictures remind me of my childhood when I was lucky enough to play out all day in the fields, woods & sandy river banks surrounding my friends house. Thank you so much Lucy and a big THANK YOU to your beautiful model.


We have 5 pieces in the collection.

First meet Day Dress






Winter Spot Blouse & Shorts




Boo Crimson Coat





Release Party Dress






We also have some very fun illustrative shots of the collection which I will share shortly but for now we hope you love what you see.

Inbetween.....

....working on the book I have managed to fit in a few lovely weekends.
Last weekend we visited the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and played the game 'what would you buy if money was no object?'



My choice were 4 beautiful etchings by artist Norman Ackroyd....maybe one day :)


This weekend just gone we visited our 2 new nephews Henry and Noah born just 9 days apart, they really are a couple of cuties.


Also a BIG thank you to Daisy Bridgewater for featuring our lunchbox in her column in The Telegraph, we love you Daisy.

weird!


I was just using 'browse' on my laptop to find an old sketch and came across this drawing. I have NO idea why I drew this? I am wondering if there was an overlap of tracing paper when I scanned it in? or maybe just maybe Boo has a little life of his own and is a very brave bunny indeed!

New Photos


Today I finished a mammoth illustration for the book, I so wish I could show you, but I am under strict instructions not to, it's very frustrating. The good news is I am now officially half way through, only another 6 weeks to go.

I decided to take a break this afternoon and dust off my camera and take some photos of our lovely tinware. I realised when we received the following email from a friend in Australia....

"It arrived and super quick and it is beautiful. Really well made and love the fact that it is totally covered by images.
ps - not a dent on it so thank you to whoever packaged it up. Ava and I decided we would fill it with pom poms".

....that we didn't explain that the lunch boxes and money boxes are wrapped in illustrations, no 2 sides are the same, that is why it took me so long to get every edge to line up correctly.

We have had a great response to the new tinware, thank you so much for all the lovely messages, our Ava lunch boxes sold out within a week, but a new batch have arrived and are equally as sweet.

Have a lovely weekend every one x
