Belle and Boo

As a child I always loved dress-up paper dolls and think it is a shame that these days sticker book versions seem to have replaced the good old fashioned cut out style. I was so pleased to find this gorgeous version from Belle and Boo. Mandy Sutcliffe's illustrations of Belle and her rabbit, Boo have a lovely vintage feel about them and take me right back to my childhood. You can even download more outfits for free from Belle and Boo's wonderful blog.
Mandy has also created all sorts of wonderful art prints, books, stationery, homewares and even clothes. I particularly like the 'Bubbles before Bed' book which makes a lovely present for little girls who like to make and do.

I also love this 'Royal Party Parade' limited edition print. It would make a lovely reminder of the Queen's jubilee.
