Easter

I feel like I've been willing Spring on since Winter began... so I'm so glad its finally here. 
And spring of course means Easter is just round the corner! Before Mandy went on leave she worked on these GORGEOUS new Easter tins.



Set of 4 Easter Tins - The lids of these tins have a lovely egg pattern border, are embossed and are just so pretty! The tin with the red base features a lovely new Easter drawing too. Sold as a set (without the mini eggs!) for £8.20.


And then my personal favourite is this little tin basket with the Hello Chick image on the lid. Cannot wait to do an Easter egg hunt with this one..

Also perfect for Easter is our three new spring tote bags. 

Repeat Boo Bag - It's 15"x15" and is printed on both sides. Very sweet!  £14
 

 Boo Book Bag - at 15" x 15" it will make the perfect library bag! A beautiful Boo balloon image on one side and on the other side is a printed label for you to personalise  your bag.

Lastly, our smaller Hug Bag (10" x 12") that features a Belle Hugs Boo print on both sides. £13.

We still have all of our previous Easter goodies for sale as well such as art prints, tags, and cards.

In other news - we're very honoured that Sara named her latest bunny after our Boo!
Sara rescued Boo from the RSPCA after he was abandoned there for only having one ear. He is now living happily in Sara's vege patch, which makes us very happy too!
Boo is the handsome fellow on the left! 


Love Clare

Mother's Day

Mother's Day always catches me out in the UK. Instead of being the 2nd Sunday in May, like in Australia where I grew up, it comes along on fourth Sunday of Lent, and I never seem to remember this so am constantly caught unawares coming Mothering Sunday!
I made a vow not to do it again this year and having these lovely cards and prints around to look at has been a good reminder for me!




And then the lovely prints to match (all available mounted and framed)




Do you have any plans for Mother's Day?

And speaking of mothers... some lovely mothers have sent us these pics of Belle & Boo out in the world!



Love, Clare x

Changes for Spring!

As you will have noticed things have been a bit quiet on the blog for a while. Combined with the move from London to Bristol, working, and the imminent arrival of her twins, you could say Mandy has been quite snowed under!

With Mandy now on maternity leave, Belle and Boo will still be very much running and we want to keep you up to date with all the news at Belle and Boo and, more importantly, updates on Mandy, so this is where I step in and say hello!

I’m Clare and I’ve been working alongside Mandy as a designer for Belle and Boo for a few years now and I'll be on blog duty for a while. Some of you might remember when Mandy first introduced me here, and I run the Belle and Boo twitter too, so I may have already had a chat with you on there! While I know my blog posts won’t compare to those of Mandy’s I’m looking forward to getting to know you all and can’t wait to share all of the comings and goings at Belle and Boo (and there is definitely a lot going on in the upcoming months!).

Looking out the window I’m greeted with daffodils in bloom and not a cloud in the sky, so it seems rather fitting to share our Spring clothing collection which is now online at the webshop and Etsy store.


Up the Hill Dress, which is printed with the gorgeous Belle and Boo ‘Up the Hill ‘ repeat print. £37




Fly A Kite Dress, which is a favourite in the studio, is a gorgeous 50’s inspired dress that has a secret kite pocket on the back! £44




Lily Dress – A-lined smocking dress with our ‘I Grew These For You’ image screen printed on the skirt. £44 (Modeled here by Kate's adorable daughter)





Boo Pocket Top – A-lined cotton blouse, with ‘Up the Hill’ printed sleeves and screen printed Belle by a sweet little Boo pocket. £30





Up the Hill Camisole – printed with the ‘Up the Hill’ repeat print it has a gorgeous cross over back and a sash. £33. So cute, and like the Boo Pocket top it is a perfect match for our shorts…





Fly A Kite Shorts – gorgeous poplin shorts with featuring Belle and Boo flying a kite and yet another lovely kite pocket! £24

We can’t wait to see pics of your little girls all dressed up for Spring, so be sure to send us photos if you purchase any of the outfits.


I’m off to make the most of this Spring sunshine. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Love,
Clare
