I like keys. They can be elegant and tall or short and stocky. Some keys are decorated like fine china and others are purely utilitarian. Keys lock away secrets or open the door to new possibilities. I grew up in a small town and we rarely used keys. We only locked the house if we were going on vacation, and then we had to search for the key.
Years ago I bought some vintage keys at a flea market. I put my keys into a shadow box, strung up with pretty velvet ribbon and attached with pearl head pins.
Interestingly, lately I have seen vintage keys popping up at home decor stores.
I must not be the only one who loves keys!
