Heaven you are wondering...what in the world is she talking about???
Ok...I'll share some super exciting news with you.
The other day I was talking with my friend Melissa Riche, who is the uber talented
Public Relations Director (did I get your title right Melissa?) for
Annie Sloan Unfolded.
Melissa is the lady responsible for making sure all the major and minor publications and media are aware of
Chalk Paint™ brand decorative paints and products.
Not to be constantly confused with paid ads.
Melissa gets the Annie Sloan Unfolded product line noticed for FREE!
Now thats a talented and hard working lady.
OK...back to our conversation...
Annie Sloan Unfolded – the US distributor for the amazing Chalk Paint™
will have a booth at Haven and we have a lot of great giveaways and competitions taking place at the
Most of you have already heard of Chalk Paint™, and a lot of you have already blogged about it – in fact it’s thanks to bloggers like you that Annie Sloan’s unique decorative paint has become such a success with DIYers. So Annie Sloan Unfolded wants to give something back (cuz they rock that way) to thier existing fans, and introduce new products and paint to those who haven’t already experienced it first hand.
So here is how they are going to do that..

Every attendee at Haven will receive a sample pot of Chalk Paint™
say hello to pretty Diane..she hand paints my charts for The Empty Nest
Along with a hand-painted color card.
Here is what will be happening at the Annie Sloan Unfolded booth.
|Add Hello Beautiful!|
Firstly, we’ll be launching the latest color in the Chalk Paint™ color palette.
It’s called ‘Florence’ and it’s a gorgeous jewel-color shade of green with a hint of blue. Like most of Annie Sloan’s colors, it takes its references from 17th and 18th century colors.
It’s similar to the old ‘verdigris’ which was used extensively on Italian furniture of that period.
I know you will love it – this will be the color everyone is talking about this fall - and you will want to use it right away to add a serious pop of color to a room or a piece of furniture.
My head is swimming with ideas on what I will be painting in Florence.
The Empty Nest will have this beauty in stock next week.
Can you spell
Secondly – we will have some great giveaways with a total of
35 major prizes.
That means you have a one-in-seven chance of taking away something extra special from
