matches-groupWalking my dogs this weekend, there was a strong smell in the air of autumn. With that brings early nights and fires in the fireplace. Shandell’s has added a new  Must Have to it’s website Decorative Matches.

I was given a box of matches like these long ago by a friend to celebrate the holiday season. I saved it for years and finally designed a perfect prototype for us to make. What makes these great is that they are made in the USA, all from products that are made here. The only exception is the ink that I use. I have put 24 different styles on my website with more to come. I have a huge image library and will be adding lots of new images frequently. There are lots of vintage imagery of dogs and horses, they are my favorites. Please let me know what you wold like to see.

You can also have custom matches with your favorite picture on it made.

I had a customer last year give these as Christmas cards, on one side was a beautiful poem by her and the other was a picture of her family.
These make the best hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, teachers gifts and more…. Enjoy looking.
