Matchbooks

4/21/2011

My parents have collected matchbooks from all of their travels, and although I gathered some when I studied abroad, I have since lapsed. Ian and I started saving wine corks after our first get together at our apartment, but I would like to try to pick the matchbook collecting back up! I also collect perfume bottles and clutches (if that counts!). Tell me, readers, do you collect anything?

I actually don't really collect anything, boring I know! I buy a lot of cards, but I always send those out. My parents collect match boxes too though, they don't smoke, but have a big bowl of them.

It's also fun to have a beautiful dish on your coffee table to display your favorite matchbooks!

i've collected wine corks, and keep the ones of bottles i love. i've tried numerous times to keep the labels from my favorite wine bottles as well, but its too complicated, and i also drink too much wine....
steve collected keg lids in college. we still have the huge bag in our office upstairs.
oh, and i used to collect dolls (fancy kind) and pigs when i was little. i need to find that pig collection.... and my nutcrackers at xmas time. wow, i do have a lot of collections!
