I’m writing today to give a special Grazie Mille to one of my favorite bloggers: Saxon Henry of Roaming by Design!
This month Saxon shared the news on her fab blog announcing to her readers that The Antiques Diva® & Co is now offering Italian Tours! If you didn’t catch Saxon’s article on Antiques Diva Italian Tours make sure to do so now!
While I love Saxon’s blogRoaming by Design, I’m also a fan of all Saxon’s work (and Saxon in general as she’s one of my favorite travel companions and client-turned-friend). Did you know that she publishes a number of blogs, including her life story – topromise.com/ ” target=”_blank”>The Road To Promise? She’s also turned her passion for social media into a career – her new Social Media consultancy firm, Adroyt, founded with the dazzling Richard Holschuh, is now in full swing!
I simply can’t get enough of Saxon Henry! Make sure to visit both these sites for more Saxon Henry fun!!

We’re only into the end of our 2nd month and I’ve already traipsed thrice across Europe, dashing to Amsterdam, Den Haag, Antwerp , Brussels and Paris. Sometimes I don’t know whether I’m coming or going and whether to say Bonjour, Goedemorgen or Guten Tag!
Meanwhile as I’m on the road, The Antiques Diva & Co keeps appearing in different places around the world wide web! First it was a mention in tours-122004 “>Apartment Therapy’s article on French Shopping Vacations and Tours followed shortly thereafter by a few of my articles appearing in the Bonjour Paris newsletter.
Meanwhile, I was honored to spend a weekend in Paris with social media maven and journalist Saxon Henry. While we were out and about in Paris she posted about our wanderings on Roaming by Design, telling details of our meeting with passemeterie-artisan tory/ask-antiques-diva-salon-des-antiquities-de-bastill/”>Remy Lemoine whose work graces the interiors of some of the world’s top designers. When Saxon & I weren’t gallivanting about, we took some much-needed down time in the city of light and one of our favorite nights in Paris occurred when I decided to don an apron and whip us up a 5 course dinner!
On top of all of this, I was delighted that the Italian Luxury Linen company blog Belvivere did a feature on The Antiques Diva & Co! Mrs. Conti had me blushing like a bride over the praise she lavished on our European Shopping Tours and the inventory in our Online Store.
Speaking of online stores, the Belvivere linen shop is divine and a visit to CEO Jay C Conti’s website is a wonderful lesson in linen. Recently I was honored to be asked to write a testimonial for Conti’s upcoming book, “The Luxury Bedding Makeover System -A Step-by-Step Workbook To Dress Up a Beautiful Bed & Revamp Your Bedroom Décor”, which unravels the mystery of thread count, teaches the language of linen & deciphers quality in bedroom decor.
“I went to a talk in Singapore about owning your own business and the speaker used you – The Antiques Diva – as an example. I was like “Wow!, I know her”…. I’ll never forget going to your beautiful home in Amsterdam. It was so well decorated and all of the food and every detail was just right. I’m sure your business must be great if you put as much love into your business as you do your home.”

I’d like to claim the idea was my own but must confess the credit goes entirely to Ms. Parisbug! Why not line your shower curtain hooks with Eiffel Towers? While I think these shower hooks came equipped with their own Tour Eiffel’s you could “Do It Yourself” Diva by buying key chains and hooking them onto your shower curtain hooks at home!
Now that’s what I call a Diva Idea for decorating your bathroom!
