The Placed Flower Collection started out as a cover from a box of safety matches.

Safety Matches?!

Phillumeny: The hobby of collecting match related items such as matchbooks, matchboxes, and match-covers. Before the Internet, travelers often brought back matchboxes as souvenirs from other countries. Match factories caught on to the attraction and started issuing special covers after WWII. The hobby became especially widespread from the 1960s through the 1980s. Now with the use of the internet, enthusiasts are able to share their collections worldwide. As for me, I don't collect the actual match-covers, but instead, collect the digital images.  Below are a few of my favorite and here is my Phillumeny Board onPinterest.
