Still Have the Fever

As many of you long-time readers know, I have a full-fledged skeleton key fever. I don’t know why but I just can’t help myself! To me, they hold a mysterious story of what they unlock and who they once belonged to.

When my best friend, her husband, Walker, and I made an impromptu day trip to wine country on Sunday, we stopped into a cute shop called Picket Fences. I happened to stumble upon a little something that make my heart leap in excitement…

HOW GORGEOUS ARE THOSE?! They are seriously heavy and seriously awesome. There are five keys of various sizes and shapes on one solid key ring.

Now the big question is: where do I feature them in the apartment?

I could hang them on the front door but I am a little worried that if I slam it, they will break the glass window! But it would be sooooo adorable and awesome…Wreath2

Another option is for them to join the company of the “Our First Place” key, my Nana’s skeleton key to her childhood home, and the two other keys I have hanging on the gallery wall in the living room. I’m not sure exactly how I would hang it, but it would probably look cool with all of the other keys.GalleryWallKeys

The third option is to find a place for them in the kitchen, possibly near the awesomely huge opera house skeleton key I found at the flea market.WineCorkFrame2

I also think the key could look really cool featured somewhere in our backyard but nothing is calling out to me yet.NewPlantShelf

Judging by the number of keys I have acquired, I could also start a brand new key wall somewhere…. kitchen? Bedroom?

Anyway, the point is that I need your help!

    I think a key wall would be really cool! Or at the very least, a big huge frame with all of the keys arranged inside.
