Here at Belly Button we love to look out for the first signs of Spring! Although we haven’t seen any in the Belly Button garden, I spotted these gorgeous pages from the Avoca Cookbook.

I think these pictures are so inspiring especially the blossom tree arch!

A little secret

I rarely get down to the shop to have a good look but they really do have a beautiful selection of gifts. Including gorgeous Caroline Gardner candles which are yummy! Also, Miss.Patisserie bath bombs that smell divine! Below.

News from Norwich

Being all the way up in Manchester the Belly Button girls never really get to see what’s happening at the Norwich Belly Button shop but this morning we have had news from Norwich! Julie and Jane our fabulous girls over there have sent us some exciting photos of the shop.

Oh! how we love it…

Beautiful Orla Kiely window! Try the graphic pear patterned mugs for stylish stocking fillers. Cocoon them in tissue and tie a big bow!

A really wintery display – we love the Bath House Bath Milk

One of our all time favourites Caroline Gardner has now designed a range of homeware products which are just gorgeous. Norwich has filled the window with them – scented candles, reed diffusers and other scented goodies. The packaging is the usual Caroline Gardner quality – sumptuous board and sherbet coloured vegetable inks.

virides – is our favourite scented candle. A fresh delicate fragrance of cut grass, pear and rose with a hint of jasmine. Candles are made from a blend of mineral wax and natural plant extracts, specially formulated to diffuse the fragrance without background aroma, the wicks are 100% unbleached natural cotton.

candles include 10% of fragrance for a longer lasting aroma and a burn time of approximately 40 hours.  One of the best things is each candle is poured into french made glass vessels in suffolk, england.

A pretty little selection of our Penny Kennedy  gift wrap collection. Don’t forget the girls at Norwich can also personalise your Belly Button card with a name or date just to make it even more special. You’ll even get an extra sprinkle of glitter…

The view from outside – the card gallery and a pyramid of our famous Chi Chi fine bone china mugs. It’s lovely to see all our designs together in one huge display.

The enticing treasure trove of cards, stationary packs, bows and in the background the beautiful hand woven Avoca socks! Definitely on our wish list!

More Caroline Gardner goodies! Also, our fun canvas made by the Manchester Belly Buttons!

I think that is enough for today, our hearts and minds are spinning from dreaming of the all the delightful treasures…
