Take a look at this little guy.
Why, it's a little ceramic squirrel, holding an acorn-full of strike-anywhere matches. And he seems to have a textured base upon which to strike said matches!
Do you die? I die.
It's called, well, a match strike, and it's totally a real thing that people used to have in days of yore.
Darling Jonathan Adler has resurrected the idea and oh how I adore him.
Form, function, etc. We still don't even have things like bedside tables at our new place but we have a match strike.
Er. Or should I say, we have multiple match strikes.
After I learned about the concept, I immediately went hunting for more, and then I accidentally bought this amazing little bronze kangaroo off Etsy.
That face! That pouch!
Do I actually need to say anything to justify this purchase?
I didn't really think so.
