My Matchbox Display

My matchbooks from Waiting on Martha (that I posted about here) came awhile ago and I love them! The only problem was I didn't really know where or how to display them, and ended up hiding them in a drawer, which is a huge shame given how adorable they are! Then the other day I was thrifting at Value Village and a pretty pink depression glass bowl caught my eye from a distance. When I got close, I realized it was actually an ashtray and I thought 'what a clever, witty little holder for my matches this would be!'. At $3, this baby came home with me and is making me happy every day!

What a good use for an ashtray. Those are probably becoming rare these days!

What a pretty display! It's funny how we never see ashtrays anymore in homes, but I'm loving how you used yours...it looks like art!

Pretty! Funny that match boxes can be so cute, but those dots are great!

I love those matches since the first time I saw them on your blog. I wish I could put them on my coffee table but the parent in me says NO lol. I don't even want to think about what my kids could do with them, yikes
