Sam & Ellis

Hello, hello the babies are in bed, Russ is away camping, I have a non alcholic beer and a whole evening clear in front of me so time for a little 'twin' update. The boys are now 5 and a half months old, the past 2 months have flown by and they are getting so big. I adore this picture that my friend took when she came to came to stay, Sam is on the right and Ellis on the left,

They not only look very different but are very different in characters, Sam loves his food and is already on 3 solid meals a day, he is boistrous and strong and desperate to sit up by himself. Ellis is a chatterbox and a little more dreamy he spends alot of time talking to himself whilst gazing at his big hands. They have really started to notice each other and there are lots of BIG smiles and giggles and last night a proper little converstaion was going on I wish I knew what they were saying. Here are a few more of my favourite pictures.

Love Luxe Launch

Belle and Boo were approached by Rosie at Love Luxe to be involved in her blog launch party at Goldney Hall in Bristol and of course we said a big "Yes, please!". So Kate, our fab MD,  styled a table for the launch using our party range and lots of other pretty things. We're all so pleased with the end result of the table, which, Kate couldn't have done without the help of Fosters Event Catering (who supplied the afternoon tea), Rachel at The Rose Shed (who supplied the dainty vintage inspired flowers) and Eat Sleep Cake (who supplied the much talked about cake!) and Floato for the gorgeous helium balloon. Big thank you too to Rosie, the other stylists and all the photographers involved on the day for making it such a lovely event to be apart of.

Wall Stickers

We've had wall stickers on our minds lately... because we've been busy designing some new ones! Some are from existing artwork and others have been drawn up especially.  We've been dying to share them with you for ages but we have to keep our lips sealed for a while longer.  We're hoping to get them launched in the next few months. Exciting times ahead. 
I've got one of the samples up on my fridge at the moment, can you guess what it is?

 Wall Stickers in the home...
Some lovely folk have shared some pics with us of our wall stickers in their home and we wanted to share them with you too!

 Boo watches over baby Eilish as she plays her super cute vintage piano.
Thanks Jane for the pic!

 Boo also watches over Baby B's cot! And that's a Boo cushion and cot quilt we spy there too!

Thanks Nina for the pic!

Noah daydreams of flying from his cot with his Hot Air Balloon stickers! 
(Is anyone else jealous of Noah's bunting curtains? Because I am!)
Thanks Jessica for the pic! 

Amy-Jo's Cowboy and Indians nursery brings a smile to her whole family!
 Thanks Tania for the pic!

 Arielle is a very spoiled bubba (and cute to boot!) indeed! She has our Donut wall sticker above her cot as well as 4 art prints on one wall,  our letterpress boo limited edition on another wall and not forgetting her Boo cushion
Thanks Nikki for the pic!

 The lovely ladies at She Dressed In Black have decorated 'Twee Towers" with lots of wall stickers! They have the Donut sticker in their retro pink kitchen and the Hot Air Balloons stickers in the playroom.

Belle & Boo are now selling lampshades that are made using fabric from our collection. Yippee! This is particularly exciting for those of you doing Belle & Boo room make overs as you can have matching lampshades to the blinds/curtains/blankets/pajamas that you may be making with the fabric!
The shades come in a variety of sizes and you can choose if they're for a lamp base or a ceiling light when you order.

The designs available are:
Classic Belle is available in 3 sizes. 
(20cm x 18cm, 30cm x 24cm and 25cm x 25cm.)
  Hello Boo is available in 2 sizes. 
(30cm x 24cm and 25cm x 25cm)

 Pirate Games is available in 3 sizes
(20cm x 18cm, 30cm x 24cm and 25cm x 25cm.)

Ava & Friends is available in 3 sizes
(20cm x 18cm, 30cm x 24cm and 25cm x 25cm.)

 Each shade will be made to order by Ruth, who runs Quincy Lampshades from of her home just outside of Bristol. Because each shade is made to order you will have to allow 1-2 weeks for delivery...but they'll definitely be worth the wait.
"Quincy Lampshades was founded in 2011 by Ruth McAllister, who, inspired by the brilliance of modern quilting cottons, produces a range of beautiful, bold and winsome lampshades at her kitchen table with love. Having discovered that her grandfather was once a lampshade-maker too, Ruth is determined to bring an end to beige and boring lampshades and bring colour, fun and individuality to home lighting."
