lighters are overrated:)




Here's some matchbox geekery for you! Found all this goodness on flickr - Mid Century Modern - Sticker, Label + Stamp Club (pool). I especially love the pipe smocking cat:)
These make me wish I had a gas stove (although, I remember how stressful it was ,as a kid, to light it).

Brilliant finds. Loving the line-up of rainbow-coloured ladies with matching neckscarves and shoes. Beautiful. xx
