Ever fall in love with something you thought you would hate? I was shopping at a local thrift store the other day when I stumbled across this little oddity.

I picked it up, not really sure what it was (as it was taped shut), looked at it, walked away, came back and looked at it some more, and finally decided to investigate. After I pulled it apart I realized that it's a set of coasters!

My first thought was to poke fun at it and comment on the fact that it belonged in some outdated rental condo on the beach, but I slowly began to like it....and then I fell in love with it.

In conclusion: I love my new woven coaster set. I'm still not sure why, but I am glad I gave this unique little find a second chance.


  1. not going to lie, i dont know why either. i also dont know why you have a shark mug.
    oh i know! you could get a bunch of different coasters and make a wall collage type thing!

  2. I really love the coaster/collage idea! I might use it...and the shark mug is the result of a trip to SeaWorld. Yes, we are touristy people.
