HAVE A LITTLE ART...Carole Shiber s hand painted coasters are truly like no other. She sketches a leaf or flower, has a cookie-cutter die made out of it in Brooklyn, New York, has them cut, then artfully paints each one of them. Not only are they works of art, they perform well their intended functions: protecting the surface from moisture or heat marks.. They make a truly original and appreciated hostess gift, and provide a little art wherever it s placed. Scatter some around your home or office and notice the difference!
