Tips - From Me to You
These are extremely high quality Placemats & Coasters - Elaine has backed them with lovely soft Forest Green velour felt for that additional wow factor.
Her paintings are adorable, each one is beautiful. You can either use the Placemat as a dinner setting or for something funky use the Placemat as a mouse mat!
For me its the eyes, Elaine amazingly captures them as if they are looking directly at you. These are high quality being backed in dark green velour felt so not to scratch any surface.
