No64 April Blog
30 April 2018
Well it's been an eventful month here at No64 HQ with birthdays, new kittens, our first ever Annie Sloan Workshop, and our 'new to the UK' brand, FUHR Home arrived!
Ester & Erik – Kittens & Candles!
These beautiful fluffy bundles arrived a few weeks ago, we were only going to have one but of course had to have two when it became time to separate them, we just couldn't do it and we had to have a brother and sister!
I was working on a joint property styling project with the uber talented interior stylist Robyn Hedges of property & holiday home rental experts New Forest Escapes and she happened to mention these kittens, the rest is history! :)
The boy, the grey one, had provisionally been named Eric, a name we loved and so we kept it and named the girl Ester and as, for those of you who visit us regularly will know, our favourite Danish candle brand is called Ester & Erik!
They've had plenty of visitors, their first in the shop being Maisie Chamberlain and her friend Livvy, who just adored them!
And we got a lovely mention entitled 'New Paws at No64 Biscuit House' on the Milford on Sea news site, which you can see via this link - http://www.milfordonseanews.org/
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Workshop
We're so excited to announce the arrival of Annie Sloan Workshops here at No64 HQ. Glenn is still in training to deliver them on his own and last week, on April 25th, he observed our special guest host deliver a workshop to 6 of our lucky Annie Sloan fans/customers.
It was a fabulous day, 3 hours in length learning about the paint itself, painting techniques and finishes, the use of waxes to finish and stencils, and much more.
We'll soon be releasing news about further workshop dates here, which were going to be from June, but we've just had some fabulous news of another guess host and so we'll be releasing a May date very soon!
Birthday Celebrations at No64
At the end of February it was the No64 1st birthday, this month it was our turn! We won't share our age but I guess it is kind of interesting / sweet that Glenn & I are less that 24 hours apart in age!
We were born in the same year, Glenn on April 16th and me on the 17th. We met, briefly, in 1980-82 but then Glenn moved away, after losing contact we were reunited 30 years later and the rest.......is history :)
FUHR Home of Denmark arrives @No64BH
Our first order from our brand new 'new to the UK' Danish brand, FUHR Home, arrived this month too, and it's already been a smash hit with our customers.
The leather bags shown above are stylish and beautiful, we have 6 of the range shown in stock currently but they're disappearing very quickly. They range from travel bags, to satchels and laptop cases, and backpacks. And they're unique, currently we're one of only ten UK stockists, something we're so so proud of.
On our website the FUHR home section is brocken down into 3 sections, as well as Leather Bags & Satchels we also have Furniture & Lighting & Cushions & Pouffes - do I have a personal favourite piece yet? I'd have to say it would be the leather Valencia Stool / Foot Stool it's just gorgeous!
If you'd like to learn more about this amazing new brand please have a read of the article we posted by clicking here or click the following link to be taken to the FUHR Home section on our website - FUHR Home
Well I'm sure, like me, you recently thought Summer was here, when we had one day of sunshine, but now of course it's freezing cold again, don't we just love the UK weather!
It won't be long now though, this time next month we'll be alfresco dining, complaining about mosquitos, and laughing at each other's white bodies!!
Thanks for supporting us as ever, and for reading, until the same time next month....
Lots of kisses,
