I love the the simple beauty of old skeleton keys. I often wonder what doors they've unlocked over the years. They seem to hold mysteries and answers simultaneously. My daughter's old armoire came with one, I photographed some at Madison Bouckville, and even collected a couple for Steampunk accessories. They've clearly been on my mind. Last night I carved some new stamps inspired by three little keys that have been sitting on my dresser beckoning me. I have a couple of plans for them, but first they needed to go on the cover of a Moleskine journal. What perfect reminders that we already have the keys to whatever we dream... a fitting place to jot down our plans and thoughts, don't you think? I made one to replace the journal I just filled up, and I'll have some in my shop, too.
I'd like to believe that the doors you wish to unlock are just waiting for the key you already hold. Have a wonderful start to your week!
