  1. It was lovely meeting you at Meet The Blogger London! I’m in love with these coaster designs – utterly beautiful. I’ve been searching for ages for some gorgeous coasters (surprising how hard they are to find) and these are perfect. Thanks so much for the intro – they’ve been added to my wish list 😉 x
