{review & giveaway} Flower Tile Coasters from Whimsical Wares CLOSED

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

I must say that I am a huge tea drinker. There always seems to be a a cup full of hot steamy herbal tea at my desk or on the coffee table. This indulgence however has taken its toll on my poor wooden coffee table, unitl now that is. Drum roll please.
: Introducing :

Melanie from Whimsical Wares was kind enough to send me one of her wonderful Flower Tile Coasters. These coasters are quite substantial, measuring half an inch thick and four by four inches around. An uplifting flower print is stamped on their smoothed top surface, which is a breeze to wipe clean. I was so happy to find the coasters are mounted on four tiny cork 'supports', making them completely scratch free.
I made myself a cup of tea the evening I received this lovely coaster, and was very impressed with the quality and workmanship that went into its production. All four corners and sides were sanded smooth and the design beautifully stamped. My table remained cool and free of any moisture, the coaster even absorbed some water that had found its way onto the bottom of my cup. I love my Flower Tile Coaster and would highly recommened Whimsical Wares to anyone looking to spruce up their entertainment area. Whimsical Wares also offers hand etched glass Mugs, Pint Glasses, Tumblers, and Wine glasses. As well as an amazing selection of her adorable coaster sets. These are perfect for gift giving or as a reward for yourself !

Melanie's designs are inspired by the imagination of her three children, as well as her faith, and "each piece has a touch of whimsy." And being the generous woman that she is, Melanie has offered to give away a set of four Flower Tile Coasters to one of my lucky readers !!!

I love it, I love birds and rabbits so the bird cage and bird bath coasters are my favs, but also the very Beatrix Potter looking rabbit coaster is sweet too.
