Spirit Of Christmas at The Warehouse & other stuff

Been a busy week
I pulled my friend Allie in to help me.
Butterflies and fish decoupage all week.

Up to our eyeballs in gilt and paint.

Until our brains boggled.

Actually, it was Allie I started out with 20 odd years ago in the same warehouse
We briefly had this William Hill.

We were just teaching ourselves to paint and decorate furniture.
From there to

That's my son Jay and I outside Liberty ...that little boy is now 40!

anyway ...we made the transition in just about 20 years!

At the moment you will find a small collection of our pieces around the atrium in the London store.
This huge room is their Christmas room from September onwards.

Our decoupage 19th century chests are quite mad.
But they are surprisingly popular

The first one we ever did?

yep...wound up in one of the most prestigious interior magazines on the planet.

I know...crazy hey?

and ever since they have been spotted in magazines over here

One of our gilt cabinets

 a bamboo table we were commissioned to do for House and Garden Magazine
 and this.....

Spirit Of Christmas

The date is set for our ever popular open evening at the warehouse.
It's always in the diary of locals who come along every year.
Numbers are swelling by the year , so you may want to make an early start.

We open at 5pm.
Glass of something.
English and French antique collection.
Quirky gifts.
Arundel cards, notebooks, diaries and Christmas wrap

but never fear if you miss this event
You can find us in Arundel High Street on 
Arundel By Candlelight Night

Outside the Burger Bar/ once Lloyds Bank

and here's some of our latest pieces.....

Oh I'm loving this
1950's Italian Smooth

and a mirror made from 2 windows from a 19th century French house

Italian 1930's chairs..leather

French 19th century chairs we've had upholstered in linen

 This 19th century tole grape hotte would make a wonderful log basket

French wooden boot lasts

1930's English chair
Low to the ground you just sink into it.

Here's the link to all our latest pieces

have a great Sunday


I'm putting on my walking boots, plugging in my latest
Audible book and escaping for a couple of hours.

 but dont tell my boss
I'm already on a written warning......

some of my recent Arundel walks.
Been some dramatic skies.

That varnishing can wait until tonight!

It's Coming! & Nass's Fundraisers

A quick post and a break from our Iran trip
But I'll catch up with that later in the week.

Ill make this snappy .....
Or my boss will give me a 2nd written warning.
Yes, folks Nass really is that harsh.

Doesn't look it does he?

We are busy working on a few Arundel goodies ready for that C time again!

We will have our usual evening of fun, frivolity and the odd glass of something nice.

It will be either late November or early December
If you would like an invitation just let us know.

Check out our FB page... give us a like and send a message
and we will put you on the ever expanding list

We will certainly have everything out on the Arundel By Candlelight evening.
So please do come round.
We get lonely on that night.
Everyone wants to be in the High Street or Tarrant Street.
So much so we have been known to CLOSE EARLY!!
Can you believe it? 
When the town is so rammed.

Its on Saturday 2nd Dcember

This year we have our first Christmas wrap

We will have Arundel Christmas cards, notebooks and diaries

 and general Arundel cards that would make a lovely gift

and a little aside

remember Nass ran the 10k?

Hi raised £1,000 for The Brain Tumour Charity in honour of a friends son 
£1400 for the little 1 year old in Boston who has been in and out of hospital since birth.

Thanks so much for everyone who sponsored him

Apart from anything else it helps with his MS
He needs a challenge.

Whats next I wonder??

Have a great day
