finest paperware...



Would you believe these cups and saucers are actually paper? Made by Rebecca Wilson, the project is meant to shed light on wasteful consumerism and our "throwaway culture". The ironic thing though is that I kind of really love these paper cups. Is that bad? lol... She does have a really good point though.

It is a bit ironic - that said, these are so gorgeous I can imagine you would try your very best to use them as many times as you could!

p.s I look like a lobster, still, but mostly now just my face and shoulder—yikes—when I can actually go out (tomorrow) I will go buy some spf 60. Lesson learned!
