top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>Perhaps I should have written Dear Diva Viewers, for today’s blog is light on the text and heavy on the travel pictures dedicated to my cyber-friend Judith at Studio Judith. She’s a mixed media artist and interior designer whose rather diverse portfolio includes everything from Airstream Trailers to Park Avenue Penthouses and whose works have appeared in everything from House Beautiful to HGTV to Sew Somerset. Of course, the work I enjoy most of all are those pieces of art and dreams she shares on her blog.

Judith recently did a series on Lake Como prior to my June trip to Italy and I think it might have been 3 of her posts on Como (Dreams of Another Place, Another Time, Como Dreams and Dreams of Lake Como) that inspired my husband and me to detour to Bellagio en route to Florence! Thanks for the inspiration Judith!

So Judith, these photos taken on my recent trip through the Lake Como area are for you! Alas, I looked high and low but Clooney wasn’t anywhere to be found – the pics of Bellagio, sans George, will have to do!

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!
