meet your match



I'm a match collector (seriously, it's getting out of hand) so these little beauties caught my eye. Leave it to the Swedes to come up with some serious design genius! Sold at The Swedish Museum of Architecture in Stockholm. Anyone planning a trip? Buy me some!! Found here.

I love them! Too pretty to use.
Anthropologie has some great extra large matchboxes. I also like the idea of wrapping those industrial sized campfire matchboxes in pretty paper.

I like how each one is unique- inside and out- but that really they should be in a set since they look great side by side!

Those are so cute. I am terrible at collecting anything but I wish I could collect tea cups. That's my dream.
