What Strikes My Fancy

This girl is on fire!!! (Couldn't resist a Grammy shout out to one of my favorite artists, Alicia Keys). Actually, I seem to be lighting things up a lot lately. Candles. Fireplaces. When everything outside my windows is swathed in white and the temps just won't climb....the flicker of fire is comforting, soothing, warming.

And what is striking my fancy these days are these old fashioned match strikers. They seem so old Hollywood and elegant to me. As well as little sculptural works of art.


So...baby won't you light my fire? What's striking your fancy these days?

What a fun idea--I love a good accessory! I have an Hermes ashtray that no one dares to use--too pretty (plus no one smokes anymore!) have a great day! Barbara

I already own the Aerin one...and now your post is making me want that purple one too! (not to mention that chic Chanel match box...lighting things up around here as well!)

Elizabeth, this is
something new to
me! I already collect
vintage silver {or silver
and glass} cigarette holders,
which look like tiny urns.
These would look
beautiful nestled in
with those....hmmm....!

Thanks for the lovely
images and info!

Happy Monday,

Elizabeth-
I love these match strikers! Just gorgeous.
I hope that all is well in your part of the world. I know that snow is a lot of trouble, but it certainly is beautiful until it starts to melt.
Happy Monday.

I've never seen these before Elizabeth.. what a great idea! Wonderful color and design. The stand boxes are so boring:)

Stay warm!

Happy Monday,

I'm currently obsessed with all things blue. And necklaces. Completely random, but that's what it is.

Want that last one, Elizabeth!!! So handsome. I love the idea of a dedicated match holder / striker. Right now, mine are just hidden away in drawers, and I can never find them.

I was researching something online and came across this post which I obviously missed. I adore matchstrikes and have several antique ones - clear ribbed glass (the striking part) with silver rims!
