The beautiful old Swedish matchbox labels collection of Björn Stenberg from Sweden

The AMAZING Antique Matchbox collection of Mick Lilley from England

I was in touch with Mick for several times via Facebook and he told me that he collects antique matchboxes and that he has a unique collection. Until I found his collection presented on the Bjorn Stenberg's website (that he has himself an amazing collection of old Swedish matchbox labels) I couldn't realized what he is talking about. when I saw it, I was amazed by the quantity and diversity of his unique collection. He has items that a collector can only dream about. 


A cute Japanese label of 3 Guinea pigs (Cavia) that I wanted to achieve for a long time! Yehhhhhhh! and finaly my friend Yecheal Biskovitz gave it to me

The guinea pig (Cavia porcellus)

Also called the cavy, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genusCavia. Despite their common name, these animals are not in the pig family, nor are they from Guinea. They originated in the Andes, and earlier studies based on biochemistry and hybridization suggested they are domesticated descendants of a closely related species of cavy such as Cavia aperea, C. fulgida, or C. tschudii and, therefore, do not exist naturally in the wild.

On the other day my lady took me to the hunting

She managed to hunt a pheasant, so I took my Penny-farthing  
bicycle and rode quickly to bring the pheasant

Since I was so efficient I got the honor to stand on the podium

And even received a Certificate of Excellence

At  the evening we were all very tired, so we made a good shower 
and went to bed
