Mosaic coaster

I haven’t talked much about the gifts we received for Christmas. We were really grateful and very thankful for those that generously and selflessly demonstrated the Christmas spirit of giving.

One of our favorite Christmas gifts, which we continue to admire and marvel at most every day, is a set of mosaic coasters made in my home town of Madaba.

They really are beautiful. They were given to us by Mark and Brigitte when we were in Jordan. What is unique about them is that they display Jordanian themes. One theme is the black Iris -– Jordan’s national flower. How cool is that?

We are so happy with this generous present that we are thinking of getting yet more of those coasters when we go to Jordan and giving them as gifts to friends and family abroad. They definitely make phenomenal gifts for both Jordanian and non-Jordanian alike.
