Reader Response: W Magazine

Dear Diva Readers,

I love nothing more than interaction with my Diva Readers! Recently I had an email from Catherine Hong, Online Director of W Magazine, and I knew I needed to share her divalicious tip with you about their great new feature online at the W site!

For those of you who aren’t yet W readers, dash quickly to your local newsstand and pick up a copy of this glossy oversized American fashion, art & culture magazine or better yet, subscribe today so you don’t miss one diva-worthy issue of W magazine!

Ta, Ta from Me and Hello from “W” magazine!

Hello to “The Antiques Diva,”

I’ve been recently turned onto your blog by a few friends and I thought you might be interested in taking a look at something new we recently launched on the W magazine website, tours_archive” target=”_blank”>the W House Tours.

It’s a small archive of some of the most interesting homes we’ve photographed in recent years.
Thanks so much for taking a look and I hope you enjoy.

Best regards and keep up the great work!

Catherine Hong
