Thanks to my new BBFF (Best Blogger Friend Forever), Mme Perpetua, for introducing me to the lovely porcelain creations of Raquel Masri, which you really should check out if you know what’s good for you (and I think you do).

I kind of resent this statement (“Keep calm and carry on.”). It sounds somewhat dismissive to me. Sort of like, if you’re calm about what’s going on right now (or during any wartime — which, to me, is a time of great unrest and injustice to some/all), then you’re not paying attention.
Maybe I’ll write more about it on my other blog.
But, for now, enjoy the ceramics. They’re cool regardless. 🙂

Famille Summerbelle consists of Julie & Simon Summerbelle and their adorable daughter Ophelia. Their designs, as you will see below, are intricate, whimsical, and always impressively crafted (see, particularly, Julie’s papercuts!). The following images are graciously borrowed from both their online store and their blog, which I encourage you all to visit immediately. And often. Just trust me.
