suddenly instagram.

3 days ago, i felt like i fully entered the 21rst century . . . i finally got an iPhone AND i joined instagram all in the same day. for a self proclaimed Luddite, these were two pretty big moves. i was convinced by my jet setting friends that i would love both of these things, and they were so right. as much as i hate to admit it, the iPhone 5 is a pretty near perfect device and instagram, well, it’s just so satisfying. if you want to follow me and see what inspires me or what wilma and i are up to, go here (raedunnclay on instagram).

(i used these linen napkins at a luncheon i had at my studio today and just threw them over the back of a chair when i was cleaning up. later, the light was hitting them just so . . . sheer beauty.)

serenity now.

this most amazing little beach is on the way to my studio (and less than 5 minutes from my home). i try to stop here many times a week so that wilma and i can collect our thoughts, soak up some inspiration, and run along the shore. it’s the perfect precursor to a day at the studio, and such a vital part of our routine.

on cloud nine.

i love when i see something that literally takes my breath away. that moment when you feel like your heart actually skips a beat. most of these moments, for me, come from seeing something out in nature that is so extraordinarily beautiful and unexpected that it catches you off guard. i had one of those moments this morning when i went out on our bedroom balcony to this view. the blast of energy that went coursing through my veins will get me through this long day with ease and remind me to look UP every now and then.
