Instagram is without a doubt my social media platform of choice these days. It’s instant visual gratification and I have to admit the ease of snap, filter, and post has become much more appealing than the hour(s) of research, photo editing/graphic creation, and writing that blogging can take. There also seems to be more engagement over on Insta–something I really miss from the early days of blogging.
I’m always finding new accounts to follow and thought I’d start sharing some of my favorites. Last night I stumbled upon Matchbook Diaries, an account devoted to photos of–you guessed it–matchbooks. I’m incapable of leaving any sort of branded ephemera behind and as a result have become an accidental matchbook collector.
Naturally I completely nerded out when I discovered Matchbook Diaries and quickly found myself scrolling down the rabbit hole to see which matchbooks I already had in my collection and finding new spots to visit. Currently my matchbooks are in a big bowl on our coffee table, but seeing them lined up like this got my wheels spinning–wouldn’t they be amazing framed?
I’m not sure I could part with mine in such a permanent way, so perhaps this Danielle Kroll print I’ve had my eye on would be a better alternative!
Any other matchbook collectors out there?
