There is so much stuff out there, that sometimes it's hard to get REALLY excited over one brand/thing. But every once in awhile I see something that literally makes me stop clicking and scrolling and I catch my breath a little bit. 

That was certainly the case with The Awesome Project: "an experimental initiative of Madalina Andronic (illustrator) and Claudiu Stefan (designer), producing unique, limited-edition porcelain objects & jewelery, with a touch of Romanian folklore." The pieces are designed and painted by hand, and just simply stunning. Who knew there was something out there that combined my love of home/kitchen goods, jewelry, and illustration?
