News from The French Nest!


Hello darling customers of The French Nest! I can’t believe it’s summer already! I just wanted to tell you about a few new things we are carrying at the store and give you an update on the Pawhuska French Nest. Also, I’ve included a new Chalk Paint® workshop schedule. I hope you all enjoy this beautiful summer and find the time you need to get a few paint projects done. Remember we have lots of project ideas for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® and would be glad to assist you with color selection and anything else “Annie” that you need. We can also assist you with any of your decorating needs. Just come in or call and set up an in-home consultation.We are carrying a great new line of dips and mixes from Southern Sisters Gourmet! We are already re-ordering as we have run out of quite a few flavors. The “Southern Chicken Salad” is out of this world delicious! We will have more in soon. We will be featuring these during our open houses we will be holding throughout the summer!

We also have two new lines of candles. From Capri Blue’s Muse Collection we have six fragrances – Volcano (the number one best-seller for this company), the number two best-seller is called Blue Jean, and we also have Aloha Orchid, Rain, Modern Mint, and Citrus Pomegranate. They have been poured into the most beautiful vintage reproduction cut glass powder boxes. These candles are exceptional in their quality and fragrance. Stop by and check them out!

Himalayan Candles is our other new line. These are in a beautiful vintage look dish with a silver etched lid and some are in a colored mercury glass jar with a fleur de lis pattern. They come in two sizes and the fragrances are Rain Barrel, Red Currant, Prairie Grasslands, Wild Rose & Oak, Ginger Patchouli, Honeysuckle, and Bougainvillea.

I can’t forget to tell you we are carrying the fabulous Corkcicle Canteens in 2 sizes and the Corkcicle Tumblers in two sizes. These are perfect for refreshing summer beverages and they come in 7 different colors! Come and pick out your favorite color. We’ve just received some really cute new cake plates, oil and vinegar container sets, and much more. Our darling aprons, greeting cards, birds, and mixture candles continue to appeal to everyone! And don’t forget we do custom floral arrangements!

We have made lots of new friends at our Pawhuska French Nest! All of our Chalk Paint® is fully stocked there and this month we are beginning paint workshops. Be sure to check out our schedule. We are in the process of planning some fun summertime events at The French Nest Bartlesville and Pawhuska so check us out and like us on Facebook. Stop by anytime to see “what’s new”. The Dallas Market is just around the corner and we will return with all kinds of new goodies! We will let you know when that happens!


ANNIE SLOAN CHALK PAINT® BASICS WORKSHOP IS AN INFORMATIVE CLASS USING CHALK PAINT®. You will learn 4 to 5 different paint techniques and how to use the clear and dark waxes as well as our new black wax and white wax. You will leave with all the confidence and knowledge needed to transform old and outdated furniture into something amazing! This paint is unlike anything you’ve ever used before! In this class everything is provided for you and you will leave with your sample boards that you have painted. You only need to bring yourself and wear something “paint-friendly”. It is a 3 hour class and we provide drinks and snacks. Cost for this workshop is $99.00.

BRING YOUR OWN PIECE WORKSHOP. Let us guide you through painting your own piece of furniture. Transform a piece of old and outdated furniture into something amazing using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. You will be taught only the technique to paint your piece. You may bring a small piece of furniture that can be completed in a 3 hour time period including drying time. You must be able to carry it in and out again at the end of class time (and it has to fit through our doorway). You may have someone (husband or other strong person) carry it in and pick it up for you at the end of the workshop. Recommended pieces would be – small end table, nightstand, dining room chair, small chest. If you are unsure just ask us. Please wear something “paint-friendly”. Cost for this workshop is $75.00. We provide the paint and wax needed to complete your project.

We can combine the classes and teach them at the same time. In other words we can teach a “Basics” Workshop along with a “Bring Your Own Piece” Workshop. Come by the store or call to reserve a spot for a workshop. You must pre-pay to reserve your spot and to let us know how many to prepare for. We accept cash, check, Visa, Master Card, and Discover. Fees are non-refundable but may be transferred to a future class if you need to cancel. (There must be a minimum of 3 students to hold a class). Attendees will receive a 10% discount on Chalk Paint® and any other in-store items purchased on the day of the workshop!!!
