Antique Giveaway on Cote de Texas!

 

I’m so excited to be having another giveaway!  Yes!!!  Last night, we named the winner in the Spartina 449 giveaway – Cassandra – she won a bucket bag!  Congratulations Cassandra. 

Today, our sponsor Bonny Neiman Stylish Antiques has donated an antique from her collection HERE.   Have any of you ever web shopped at Bonny’s?   I’ve been a customer of Bonny’s for a few years and tonight I went around the house looking for things I have bought from her to show you.   The thing I like best about Bonny’s antiques are the prices.  They are amazing.  Everything is very, very reasonable.  Whenever Bonny gets a new shipment, she sends out an email and l always click onto her website to see if there is something I just can’t resist.

Remember this living room I recently redid for a client?  Next to the sofa on the right side is a French writing table.  I bought that from Bonny.  Now, at that time, the finish was lighter and I wanted it really dark, so before she shipped it out to me, she restained the desk to a deep, rich brown.     I wish I had a close up picture of it to show you, but when the table arrived, I was thrilled.  The finish was perfect, its lines were graceful, the legs were curvy and thin – it was perfect.  I wanted to keep it for myself!

 

image

I’m addicted to the antique and vintage marble grapes.  I’ve bought them from Bonny for myself and clients.  These were actually going to clients but ended up staying in my house instead.

 

image

Another addiction of mine is vintage and antique globes.   I bought this beauty from Bonny.  It was too pretty to put with all my other globes, so I keep it on this table where it stands out.  I know, sick, sick!!!  

 

Below, I picked out a few of my favorites for sale at Bonny Neiman’s right now:

image

Napoleon 3rd Slipper Chairs
These would look so great flanking a sofa or a fireplace.

 

image

French Oak Gateleg Table
I have three of these tables, myself.  I buy gatelegs for clients because when they are open – you get such a large expanse to style upon. 

 

image

Vintage Italian cut Marble Lamps
I love these kind of lamps!

 

image

 19th Century Swedish Mora Clock
original paint

This is unusual that it would have the original paint.  So many on the market today are repainted.  This particular clock is really pretty too, LOVE it!

 

image

Antique Swedish Secretary
I really want this!!!!  hahaha!  Oh, this is dangerous to look at all these antiques.  HELP!!!

 

image 

Vintage Shell from Belgium
OK, I can probably afford this!  You can’t have enough shells – IMHO. 

 

 

image

I told you this story before, but in case you missed it:  Bonny sends out emails about her different antiquing adventures.  A few months ago, I wrote a story about a house for sale that was designed by Pamela Pierce.   Bonny took all the pictures from that story and picked out antiques she had for sale that would replicate the look of Pierce’s various rooms.   For this breakfast room, Bonny chose her own set of leather chairs, pictured below:

 

image

These chairs really are a great match to those that Pam used.

Leather chairs  set of 6.   To read the story, go HERE.

 

THE GIVEAWAY:

Bonny has generously donated this antique marble compote for the giveaway! 

To enter the contest, all you have to do is go to Bonny Neiman Stylish Antique’s web site HERE and find one antique that you would like to buy, if money was NO object!  How fun is that?? 

After you pick out your dream antique, come back to the blog and leave a comment telling me which antique you picked!  That’s it!!!

The contest will remain open until Saturday night at 11:59 pm.   I’ll pick a winner then.

 

A huge thank you to Bonny for the giveaway!!!

  19. How on earth do you pick just one item from such an amazing selection?!

    It took a lot of agonizing but I finally decided to go with the Belgian Farmhouse Kitchen Worktable with 2 inch Thick Marble Top. It could easily adapt to several looks that I am mulling over in my mind.

    Thanks for such an amazing giveaway!

    P.S. You asked me to let you know when I finished my garage makeover since we were both challenged in that area. I was thrilled with how mine turned out! Please check it out. If you need some help getting started on yours, let me know! I've learned a lot in the past week!

    ReplyDelete

    So, if money was no object, there isn't anything that she has that I didn't like. :)

  123. Soo many beautiful things to only pick one! I love the Italian Wheat sconces...they are beauitful!

    ReplyDelete
  124. Oh my goodness, this is not what I was supposed to be doing on a test morning! My mother is always telling me that I need to settle down on the house decorating/slip cover sewing/Marburger foraging/High Fashion Home stalking because "SOUTHERN LIVING IS NOT COMING TO VISIT YOU!" But can't a medical student have dreams? I loved the antique English marble top server. I have a beautiful antique globe that was recently displaced from its perch in favor of some terrariums (which I have already almost killed- here's hoping patients are easier!) and the server would make a perfect new home!
    What beautiful things- thank you for posting!

    ReplyDelete
  125. I love the vintage female study done in conte. It's colors are so serene. It would be perfect in my friend's powder room.

  130. Oh my stars, the choices! I would have to go with the Vintage Italian cut Marble Lamps because I've been looking for perfect lamps for my end tables for what seems like an eternity. I do admit to drooling over several of the items though, the marble top stand and Italian horse print included!

  131. So many gorgeous antiques, loved looking at them all. My dream antique would be the 19th Century Swedish Mora Clock and then to have you come over and help me decorate a room with it!!!

  132. I love the antique English sundial! I know exactly where I would place it in my garden!

    ReplyDelete
  133. I would buy the round scrubbed pine mirror today if it wasn't already sold. I have been looking for just such a mirror for several years.

    Thank you for sharing this website with us. I will definitely be a regular visitor to Bonny's from now on.

  135. The Mora clock... always wanted one and that's an awesome one!

  136. It is so hard to choose; she has such a beautiful selection! I like everything.

    But

    Money no object? I would chose the little French 19th Century Bamboo Box. Such an elegant little thing. I have a weakness for boxes And bamboo, so that little jewel just about did me in.

    P.S. I also love the antique skates. I am going to dig out my grandfather's skates and make a similar display!

    Thanks, Jeanette

  137. The store is full of so many gorgeous antiques it would be difficult to choose. I have a slight chair addiction, so that would probably be what I would choose. Thanks for the giveaway!

  139. Bonny Neiman has beautiful things and you have good taste too! I am new to Cote de Texas but had a good buddy from Houston who loved to decorate and I see glimpses of her style on your site. She died of breast cancer 2 yrs ago but I still hold her and things "Texas" dear to my heart.
    About the giveaway- I just became a subscriber at the time you posted a giveaway from Julie Neill in New Orleans. I love her chandeliers but was too late for the giveaway. The Niermann Weeks antiqued and crystal one would look great in my dining room and you didn't mention that we couldn't choose a "Sold" item.
    I choose that!

    ReplyDelete
  140. Easy. I'd buy that gorgeous pair of antique French doors and ship them out to my friend, Brooke, who is building her dream farmhouse in California!!

    ReplyDelete
  141. If money were no object, I would choose this: 18th Century Period Gustavian Server (Inv. 137). The size is perfect, the colour is perfect: that Swedish bluey-grey-greige that works so well in a mostly-white interior. Yep. That's my dream antique. My birthday is Sunday... ;D

  142. I love the antique marble compote and will cross my fingers. I love Bonny's website and eye for gathering the perfect pieces.

  151. As a former competitive figure skater I would have to go with 19th century ice skates. I have other pairs, but never thought to mount them in this way.
    Thanks!

  154. If money were no object I would choose every French market basket she has, love them. But if I am to choose one item, the antique English sundial. My garden is crying for it...

  165. Yummy! What a wonderful selection. I think I'd have to go for either the French 19th cent. Harvest Table with Leaves or the 19th cent. Wide Plank Harvest Table. Wouldn't those Belgian farmhouse table and kitchen work table make fabulous islands? Alas, I don't have the room.

    ReplyDelete

    Thanks for the chance to win the beautiful marble compote.

  170. I have a love of antique planters....I don't own any as they tend to be too far out of this gal's budget, but they are oh so pretty! So, with a blank check, I would take the 18th century French planters in a New York minute!

  173. I love the French lantern (inv 24). I am redoing a 60s ranch house and it would be wonderful in the entry. I am combing 60s glamor with some modern pieces and the lantern would work beautifully and shed the perfect light on the scheme. Thank you for introducing me to this wonderful antique shop. They have great stuff at amazing prices. I'm sure I'll be purchasing from them for future projects.

  175. If money were no object I would splurge on the Antique Marquetry Box. It's absolutely stunning. If only there were a picture with it open. I'm also dying a little over the French Eglomise Iron Base Low Table.

    ReplyDelete
  176. I absolutely love the square, French 19th Century, turned legged ottoman. This piece would be so versatile in a home. I can think of three different places that I could use this piece in my home.

  179. I would choose the Antique French doors. Ideally I guess you would actually have them installed as doors on a closet or something. Even just leaning against a wall in my house, though, they would transport me to some idyllic spot in the country with a soft warm breeze...

  180. The Belgian Industrial Clock Face, would be what i would love to have in my living room...i have been looking for something similar for over a year..
    thanks for the opportunity

  184. I would love the Napolean 3rd Slipper Chairs! I would cover them in Kilim and place next to my fireplace in my family room. I saw some done by John Derian and have been dreaming of nothing else.

  190. I LOVE the Turned Leg Harvest Table. I may change my mind since I'm going to go through her site again!

    ReplyDelete
  191. What a great store, Joni! Thank you for the intro. Looking for room on a credit card now to buy the trio of stone fragments on stands from the church in France. You know that I already own about 100 antique alabaster grapes sitting in a giant clam shell...and I repro the grapes. If I win the compote, you know I'll be repro-ing that, too.

    ReplyDelete
  192. If money was no object I would buy the vintage club chairs with the windowpane linen upholstery.

    ReplyDelete
  193. If I could chose anything, I would chose the statue of Nike. I would set her in an entry, on a round table, surrounded by books and things I loved, draped in a lei of flowers in the summer and shells in the winter (I am, after all English and Tahitian, and adore anything classic...then can't help myself and add flowers and shells!). I would see her every day as I stepped in and out of my front door, and she would remind me that the day is mine, and we are all the goddess of our own lives...Vivre la Reine!

    ReplyDelete
  194. I would love the whole set of Antique French Herbiers. I have the perfect wall for them!

    ReplyDelete
