Simple Match Storage

It's cold in Kansas City! It's that time of year again when I want to light candles everyday. I don't really do this in the warmer months, but there is something about the scents of fall/winter and the glow of a candle to make you feel cozy and warm.

I picked up this cute little blue and white decorative item while thrifting this week and thought it would be perfect to store matches in the living room. I was drawn to that cobalt blue, and it was only $1.99!


I added some matches to the inside. I then cut a strip of the part where you strike the match. I used double sided tape to adhere it to the bottom of the container.



It's so nice to have storage that is not only functional, but pretty! 



P.S. My orchid is on it's last dying days. I don't think the plant itself is dead, but all the pretty blooms are wilting and falling off. I typically have a super green thumb, but these orchids are giving me a run for my money! Tips please!

Hope you are having a wonderful week so far! xo

  1. Someday I will be able to have lovely lovelies on a low coffee table again, right? Sigh. So pretty. :)

    1. Haha! Yes, soon enough you will be able to, but until then, enjoy your littles while they are little! Every stage is fun and kids get better with age (in my opinion), but you must savor every stage. In the grand scheme of life, who really cares if a coffee table is pretty or not?! :)

    1. Hi Pat, I have taken your advice and moved it to my master bath. It gets good sunlight and hopefully the humidity will help it bloom! Thank you!
