eat it


 

 
During the quite winter months of the new year, Angus + John have been on with a new product….”Eat it”. It’s an interactive wall chart designed to encourage kids (and fussy adults) to try out a few more fruit, vegetables and other wholesome foods.

There are 100 foods to try on the list from blackberries to brussel sprouts and cherries to chick peas. For those with small children you probably know how hard it sometimes can be to get your little one to try a parsnip or perhaps even a slice of cucumber. Eat it is designed to encourage a spirit of foody adventure.

Alongside each food there’s a related fact and an opportunity to rate that food by colouring in a smiley, sad or not too sure face.

Our first batch of Eat It charts arrived from our printers on Friday and we’ve spent the weekend bagging them up.

The price is £9.95 and you can get yours here. Eat it will also be available for wholesale customers via our distributor Luckies.

feed the birds


 

 
Thought I would post these great images from Camilla Engman’s blog of the Born in sweden bird feeder. With the snow and freezing weather it’s important to keep all those little birds alive. I also have one at home and I find peanuts are a favourite snack for the wee guys.

It’s all so Quiet


 
For the next few days I (Laura) will be running the shop while Angus and John are at ‘Home’ trade show in London. I thought I would like the time to myself, spring cleaning and organising (my favourite thing to do) but to be honest I feel a little lonely without the boys.

However I have a list as long as my arm so I am sure I will be kept very busy. As well as selling the Word Map at’ Home’ Angus will also be ordering lots of great new products for the shop. I love this time of year when we can start making plans for the shop hunting down new products and brainstorming new ideas. We will keep you up to date with what’s happening in the coming month.

london 2012


 
A belated happy new year to all blog readers.

We are straight back with a new product which will be launched this weekend. The Word Map of London is our latest word map and has been made in collaboration with illustrator and friend Alison Hardcastle again.

It follows the same principals as our best selling Word Map of the British Isles but this time takes our capital city as the subject. The research covered each of the 32 boroughs of greater London plus the city of London itself and uncovered many fascinating facts which are woven together to create the new print. We will add it to our site before the weekend and will be promoting the London map at th Home Show (trade only) at Earls Court from 15th to 18th January. More news very soon…

THE CHRISTMAS BREAK

It’s here again. The time of year when things can finally stop.

As much as I love being self employed and running snowhome I cherish the time on Christmas eve when I lock up th shop and take a break for 10 days. As usual the past six weeks have been very busy and I’m extremely grateful for that. Thank you to all who have supported Snowhome this Christmas and throughout the year,it’s not possible to have a good shop without having good customers ( and good staff ). Our tenth year has been eventful and entertaining, never dull! I hope that next year brings more of the same.
The shop will be closed from 1 pm on 24th December, we won’t be back until 4th January so no internet orders will be processed until then. To anyone who stumbles across this and takes the time to read it, I wish you happiness and good health for Christmas and the new year ahead.

holidays are coming


 
I got a bit of a surprise this afternoon when the Coca Cola truck thundered past the shop, a sure reminder that Christmas is fast approaching.
It’s been nice and busy for the past two weeks and I’m frantically re-ordering the bestsellers to keep the shelves full.

Our web sales have been really good since mentions in both the Telegraph and the Times recently. Our last dates for mailouts this year will be Friday 9th December for Europe and USA and Tuesday 20th December for the UK.

SIGNING

A chance conversation with my Auntie Anna led me to this guy and I’ve been enjoying his YouTube work. Quite a skill.

beards are in


 
Here is the snowhome family modelling the first batch of home knitted beards. Very warm and very sexy.

We are working on some nice packaging for them and expect to have them available to buy on the website in a few days. There will be a post to let you all know when they are ready and maybe a competition to win one…
