A collection of matchboxes

Possibly my favourite possessions - a matchbox collection handed down to me from a lady who worked as an airline hostess for many years. She used to travel the world, picking up matchboxes from hotels and restaurants along the way as a souveneir. There must be at least 50... I just can't decide what to do with them, they're too cool.

Could you make them into an artwork for your wall?

I thought of that, but I quite like being able to pick them up and sift through them - some have designs on both the back & front, even inside! I might take proper photos of them all first, then I could hang them...

WOW! That's really cool.

Thanks! I'll post some close up photos soon, maybe a flickr set if I get time.

I finally started documenting all of these individually... it's going to take a few days to upload them all I think, but check out the flickr set if you're interested!
