New this week @ alamode...coasters

If I haven't already mentioned it, I'm working toward two big shows in December. It will be my 2nd year for both The Foundry Show and Craftland. These successful shows kept me extremely busy last year. So, I had hoped to be in front of the eight ball this year. I'm already a bit nervous as the weeks are flying by.

My goal this year was to expand upon my line of houseWARES. Adding to the decorative switch plates are now pillows and NEW coasters.


These seat belt "coasters" are actually over sized trivets. I'm struggling with the term as technically, the definition of trivet doesn't fit (these don't have 3 legs). For now, I'm calling them coasters. I trust that you'll tell me if I should simply get over it and call them trivets...won't you?

They are 8" x 8" square and made from the same reclaimed webbing I use for my bags and pillows. They are both stylish and utilitarian - great for protecting your table tops from warm dishes, and moisture while looking marvelous. I've listed a few in my Etsy shop and hope to have them on my website soon.

They currently come in 4 colors: red, black, lime, and blue. I'll also make them in checkered combinations. They are $12.00 each and will also be available in sets of 2 for $20.00.
