Last Minute Diva! Cote de Texas presents The Urban Market

top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>If I were to give a divalicious award for what The Antiques Diva™ considers to be the “Best Blog in The Universe” – Cote de Texas would be the bright and shining winner! Written by an Interior Decorator in Houston who has perhaps the best eye for design I’ve ever seen, I anxiously await her frequently posted blogs and when they pop into my inbox, I pour myself a cuppa tea, settle in and view the eye candy. I’ve tuned many Antiques Diva Shopping Tour clients on to her blog, and inevitably they come to me a week or two after the introduction with photos of “must buys” that they found on her site!

And by sharing Cote de Texas’ shopping tip, it also serves as to+you+1.jpg”>to+you+1.jpg”>to+you+1.jpg” border=”0″ />an introduction for you to add this “Texan Antiques Diva” to your RSS Feed!

Cote de Texas, HAT’s OFF TO YOU for a wonderful job! You always inspire me both as a blogger and an interior decorator!

Last Minute Diva – Verzamelen in Stijl!

to 10px; CURSOR: hand; TEXT-ALIGN: center” alt=”” src=”” border=”0″ />top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>In the thick of the throes of frustration over my computer problems, I neglected to pass along an antique shopping tip from The Belgian Beauty! Better late than never — this weekend, March 29 & 30, 2008, why don’t you head to Amsterdam’s Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky for the Verzamelen in Stijl!

A vendor planning to be there and who has caught my eye is De Sluis Art Deco with their beautiful vintage jewelry, while Goede Sier has a collection of Amsterdam School silver that I’ve seen in their stall at Amsterdam’s De Looier’s which looks quite interesting. Meanwhile, Kanne & Kruike has me intrigued enough by their collection of Art Nouveau & Jugendstil that I’ve half a mind to cancel my weekend get-a-way to Antwerp and stay home here in Amsterdam to go to this fair. Alas, perhaps it was Freudian that it slipped my mind to post the notice on this fair — as maybe I felt that if I couldn’t go, I didn’t want anyone else too either!

Happy Shopping & Buy something for me while you’re there!

Tot Ziens!
