The Now: Playing with Matches

Playing with Matches

Sometimes the littlest details in a room can have a big impact. Take for example matchbooks.  I quit smoking years ago and I'm certain I'm not a pyromaniac, but for some reason I love having them around the house! It seems like I am not the only one. Look at all of these fabulous ways of displaying your matches!

I got a ton of cool matchbooks when the waitresses at Cafe Lalo forgot about us a few years ago {literally left my friend and I sitting for probably 2 hours} and then argued with us when we just wanted to pay and go. While my friend was trying to pay for our meal I was busy swiping matchbooks. :)

I love the DIY box. Super cute! Happy Birthday Annie!

i've got the long tip electrical lighters bc they're easier to use when lighting candles, but there is something so cool about matches - in a totally non creepy way haha!

I started collecting matchbooks from my travels after I quite smoking too! I've got to get myself the little squirrel match holder - it's so cute!

My obsession with matches is OOC (out of control). I can't stop buying them when I see them. Oh well :) love these options!
