Key It Up

There is something magical about keys, right?  They lead to something. . . somewhere.  They symbolize love, hope, even mystery and power. . . And what a great shape, too.  Whether new or vintage, the shape can add just the right interest to a wall, a corner, a room or even an outfit.  Aren't these painted vintage keys adorable?  I can see them as necklaces or hanging from a chandelier.

An array of vintage keys hung directly on a wall.  Simple and even elegant.  Would definitely make me want to take a minute in that corner.

Resourceful style is my favorite thing.  How about this key lampshade for creatively using what you have to make something unique and beautiful.  Love it!

Add a vintage touch to your next event by tying a key to the place cards.  It's unexpected and will be something your guests remember forever.

Love this fabric with keys as a motif.  I would love to have a stamp or two in these shapes.

Sometimes a statement is all about having something in large quantities, and that principle applies to all these keys hanging together. . . would make an amazing canopy or garland!

This artist was inspired by the key shape, too!  We agree.
