Perhaps a few weeks back when I came across a box of twelve vintage (would they be anything else?) match boxes on etsy. They look pretty familiar...
Even the little box they came in identifying them as "noel matches"... just what every home needed back in the 60's?
Now you can see why they looked familiar! I had found a box of these a number of years back and added a couple more here and there over the years to total 15. Mine were all gold boxes and the new find, a mix of gold, red and green... the colors of the season are a fun addition.
25 match boxes and a metal tray... hmmm.
Some aqua labels, which just happened to be the right size, and a black sharpie.
Can you see where I'm going with this?
Today (well last Saturday when I did this) is only the 7th of December!
And all those matches? Well I could pile them back in those little boxes or better yet..
We'll use them to light some holiday candles!
