“Start spreading the news…I’m leaving today…I want to be a part of it…New York, New York…” Frank Sinatra
I’ve just returned from a long weekend away in the big apple. It was my first time visiting New York City and it will definitely not be the last!
What an amazing city. There is so much to see and do. I feel like I only saw a small fraction of the city. What stands out for me most is the amazing art deco architecture. So much thought and care went into each building. The details are amazing! I couldn’t stop taking pictures. Here are a few of my favourite details. I can’t wait to start designing pieces inspired by these buildings. Gorgeous!
We were staying just 3 blocks away from…
I saw this shop on 5th Ave and just had to go in!
It was like a dream in there. So many different types of lace! I picked some up so I can make some new designs! Good thing they have an online shop! http://www.mjtrim.com
Here is a sneak peak of some that I bought.
We went to the Met and saw a jewellery exhibition called Jewels by Jar. It was a show of 400+ pieces of jewellery made by New York Jeweller Joel. A Rosenthal. The exhibition was really interesting. Unfortunately you couldn’t take pics in the exhibition so here is a pic from the Mets website. His works are totally encrusted in jewels!
So much to see, so little time! It was a fantastic little getaway before a busy next few weeks prepping for the One of a KInd Show! I am feeling refreshed and inspired!
