Inspiration Overload or…a Day in NYC

Last Wednesday I took the PATH from Jersey City where I had also a fun day on Tuesday to New York City and visited my friend Julie Fei Fan Balzer. I love spending time with her. Not only is she an amazing artist, always happy to share and help with her never-ending knowledge and input, but also as a real friend. It is just the best to hang out with her.

Every time I visit her I get struck by the beauty of her art – in real life even more awesome. These two pieces were my favorite :)

After some chatting we went to MoMA. Not before takings some elevator photos- as those are Julie’s daily routine. As you can see…this needs practice – LOL

I love MoMA and every time you go there is something new to discover. This time Julie gave me her 1 Dollar tour…which she never got- although the tour was worth more…oh well…lol- ssssshhh ;)

Edvard Munch: The writing on the pre-study touched me – and it somehow for me belongs together with the painting

Geschrei: Ich fühlte das große Geschrei durch die Natur

Scream: I felt the big scream passing through the nature

Anthropologie Tree with nice mirroring building

Speaking of Anthropologie- which is one of my most favorite inspiring stores, there is no visit to the States for me without going to Anthropologie. This time I have been in 3 locations- LOL. NYC, Montclair – NJ and Palm Beach-FL – call me obsessed ;)

These boots were calling my name- until I saw the price tag- ahem, then the voice got more into whispering mode ;) . But aren’t they just beautiful?
