Cote de Texas Christmas Giveaways!!!

My Faux Holiday Table for the Houston Chronicle

 

Getting into the Christmas spirit, I am so thrilled to offer a few giveaways today – as a special thank you for all your friendship, support, and loyalty this past year.  Blogging to an empty room isn’t much fun – having readers is what it is all about and I am so very grateful for each visit you make, each comment you leave, and each email that you send my way.    When I first started Cote de Texas - soon to be three  years ago  (!) – there were very few design blogs out there.   Now, it is a vastly different landscape filled with hundreds of wonderful ones to read.   I realize you have plenty of options to choose from now and I am most thankful and truly humbled when you stop by.   So, onto the giveaways!!

The first giveaway is something everyone needs during this season – a Linen Keeper.   A what?   The developer of the Treasure Linen Keeper Portfolio asked the same question the first time she saw a vintage linen keeper from the 1950s.   The portfolio, a folder where you can store your freshly ironed linens, measures 14"x20” with a 2.5” expandable spine.   It is acid free, which makes it perfect for also storing larger photographs or documents, along with placemats, table runners, napkins and tablecloths.     The Linen Keeper will protect your valuable textiles from wrinkling and yellowing and it is easily stored in a drawer or cabinet.    There are several different categories of covers from which you can choose – and all are just $40.00.   But, one lucky reader will receive the Linen Keeper of their choice! 

To enter – all you have to do is go to the web site, Queen Anne’s Place, HERE, pick out the Linen Keeper you would like, come back to the blog and leave me a comment telling  me which one you picked out.   Be sure to include your email address in your comment.      That’s it.  Act fast though – the giveaway closes Friday night at 12:00 pm.  

The runner-up will receive a special giveaway from moi! 

                                  

Brown Zebra

The Treasure Linen Keeper Portfolio – this one is  my personal favorite!  There are several different skin covers in the Animal Print Collection to choose from.

Blue & White

You might like this one from the Asian Collection.

 

Brown on Beige

Or, you might prefer this cute one under the Polka Dots section.   And I also liked the Toile Collection covers too. 

Good luck!!!  Remember, go HERE, choose your cover, come back and tell me your choice in a comment!   There will be one Linen Keeper for the First Place winner and the Second Place winner will receive a special gift from me!!!!

The next giveaway comes from The Skirted Roundtable.   Many months ago when Linda Merrill of  Surroundings approached me to join her in hosting a design podcast – I was thrilled and leapt at the chance to have another venue in which to talk about decorating.   I suggested Megan of Beach Bungalow 8 as our third partner and the unlikely ensemble of East Coast class, West Coast hip, and Southern drawl was hatched.    Linda came up with our concept and name (which is great on so many levels) and she is our trusty editor and moderator.   Megan and I are Lucy and Ethel.  

This April will be our first anniversary and to say we are shocked by what has transpired would be putting it mildly.   Our guest list has exceeded all of our wildest dreams – and we hope to continue next year with entertaining and informative guests.   Or maybe you prefer just the three of us!    This week we take another stab at holiday decorating, focusing on different blogs and their Christmas decor.    After this week, The  Skirted  Roundtable will be on vacation until the first week in January when we welcome Stephen Drucker, editor in chief of House  Beautiful magazine as our first guest of 2010.

In sincere gratitude for all the listeners who have supported The Skirted Roundtable this past year – each of us is having a giveaway:   there will be three First Place winners in all.  One winner will receive a gift from Linda, one will get the gift from Megan and the third will get my gift!!!   To enter – go to The Skirted Roundtable blog page HERE and leave a comment on THAT page.   That’s it!    We’ll pick the three winners Thursday night.   So hurry and leave a comment – and go ahead and listen to the newest podcast while you are there!!!!

 

Here’s wishing all of you a Happy Holidays, a Merry Christmas, and a wonderful & healthy New Years!!!!

  9. Boy, I wish I had known about these before I had to re-press all of those Thanksgiving napkins! As I've been re-reading "Winter House", I'm loving Charlotte Moss' green lampshades and green velvet upholstery, so I think right now I'm feeling the green toile pattern. Hope you're having a wonderful holiday season!

  13. The linen keepers look wonderful. It was hard to choose, but I like the Cherry Blossoms best!

    ReplyDelete
  14. My first choice is the green and white toile {but that is sold out}, so I would say the black and white toile.

    ReplyDelete
  15. How gracious Ms. Joni! :) I went over and they're great. Loved the green toile - but they were sold out, so I'd pick the birds and butterflies flowers and gazebo pattern under asian folios. :) So thankful for you! xo, Artie

    ReplyDelete
  16. How exciting and what a neat idea. I am a fan of the modern damasky one and also the brown dots on cream - yes, I think that is my pick!

    P.S. Can't believe you are having Mr.Drucker himself. I would be falling all over myself.

    I like the Dark brown on beige modern on the best.

  19. What a nice gift... since you have brought so many people together with a common bond and so many hours of enjoyment, you should be the one getting the gifts!

    If I was given the choice I think it would be the modern... but the Brown on Dark Beige Python was a close second.

  31. * "CHERRY BLOSSOM", so young & bright & happy, reminds me of my Mom & a verrry similar wallpaper to this, that she chose for a bay window in the kitchen, where we all ate breakfast every morning, when I was very young... We three girls (Mom, Sis n' I) just L*O*V*E*D that wallaper, and Daddy? Welllll, you can just IMAGINE his "reaction/opinion".. but he was SUCH a GENT about it all, cuz we 3 gals we sooo thrilled with it!

    What a fun, fun giveaway! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  49. There would be a serious void in my day if I couldn't check your blog! It's my first stop of the day. I am so excited to tune in and listen to Mr. Drucker!!

    The Animal print is fabulous. Obviously everyone else thinks so too since it is sold out. I suppose I'd go with the python on cream or zebra for choice #2. Never can go wrong with the animal prints!

    Happy Holidays~Ali

    Your pic reminded me that I wanted to ask how you refinished your dining room chairs. Is the cane stained a lighter color than the wood? I have some similar ones from my grandma, and I'd love to emulate yours. Thanks!

  72. Joni, how nice of you to have a Christmas giveaway! I love that Asian toile. Your faux holiday table is so pretty. I want those wonderful chairs! I haven't been able to visit SRT in some time.

I'll try to do that, so I can catch up with you 3. laurie

    And I'm headed over to the SRT now!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Joni, what a lovely item and great Christmas present! Thank you for giving each of us a chance to win the linen press. A toss up for me between the brown zebra and the large azalea print; guess I will go with zebra (you probably could have called this one, Joni, due to our similar tastes in what we find beautiful).

  113. I would have to start out with the Christmas linen keeper to organize my Christmas linens. Then I would have to buy the brown zebra. These are great! I have shelves in closets I don't even use and this would be a great way to organize and store linens. Summer linens in a floral pattern....

    ReplyDelete
  114. What an awesome time I have had following your blog and the Skirted Roundtable. Several months ago I was googling Pamela Pierce because I love her work as seen in Veranda. Your blog came up, and I immediately became addicted. You do an awesome job. The linen keepers are wonderful. Personally I would choose the black and creme toile. Thanks for all your inspiration.

  116. Joni, thank you for the blog. It makes my day to see an email from Cote in the inbox. Truly a bright spot which helps to feed my passion for decorating and design.

    Who knew I was remiss in my linen keeping! Leave it to you to keep all of us current!

    Choosing 1 is not easy because it is a great selection. Brown Zebe is a long time fav..even in the real thing.

  117. Modern Brown & Beige is chic!

  124. Wow! What an amazing idea, I had never heard of this. Thanks so much for this wonderful give-away and for your amazing blog. I don't comment much but you are such a wonderful inspiration and I just love reading every day.

    I really love the Red & White Toile. It would match my dining room beautifully. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I wish you and your family a blessed Christmas Season.

  134. I discovered your blog (the 1st I have ever visited) because I lost my house in the Tea Fire in Santa Barbara on 11/13/08. I have used my insurance money to buy a 1930 Spanish Colonial on the Santa Barbara Riviera and hope to move in next month. I will have no furniture which should be sort of fun and so look at all of your blogs gathering great ideas. I would love to win the Cherry Blossom...thanks! wendymedmunds@aol.com
