Nifty coasters

My friend Megumi sent these plastic coasters from Japan (purchased at FrancFranc). Aren't they cool? She always knows what floats my boat.

I love those nifty coasters. I've been on an Asian-style kick the last few days and these really hit the spot! I was just reading the other day about your previous post making coasters out of felt. Perfect timing!

Simple, practical, great style and quite possibly the most important aspect for me, they don't take up a lot of space!

Oooo, I love these! My fave colors and the print rocks...

What a treat to have her as a friend. It seems you get heaps of cool finds from her.
Japan is filled with all sorts of neat treats and wee delights.

Those are pretty awesome! They remind me of a deck of cards I have from Japan - very chic.

As an aside, someone keeps posting non-Modern Flora items (mostly kanzashi) to the Modern Flora Flickr group.

Oh, thanks for spotting that.

Those are great coasters. I live in Hong Kong and the FrancFranc store here is awesome. I might just have to make my way over there this afternoon and check out their assortment of coasters.

Love the color and design but I wish they weren't plastic since it is so bad for the environment.
