A Drawer full of Keys!





We've all got em, some of us more than others. My sweet Jim cannot throw a key away, he just can't. I am sure we have the key to our first home, the skeleton key from our home in Belgium, and about every key to any lock made, hahaha....I came across a really neat site sometime ago and decided I needed a few of these for the journals I like to make and give away and to go on the endless collection of antique books I am so fond of. Craftygoodies has the site bookmarked, somehow I've messed something up and can't get the http....I know you'll love her site, so take a hop on over..

I am in awe of jewelry makers and I am determined to take a class as I am sure there is an easier way of me getting those jump rings on, haha...it was quite the site....i have lots of blings and things laying on my desk to complete but until then, here are just a few of what I've done so far....mine are a little shabby chicy (is that a word?) since thats what I like....Connie over at craftygoodies.blogspot.com decided we'd both post ours tonight so you could get a look a several different styles...I haven't see hers yet but I am headed over there once I post.....

Please excuse the low quality pics...I got in late this evening and just took so the quality is nothing to phone home over...at any rate I hope you enjoy, get a little inspiration and leave a note if you'd like...how would you decorate these???? I am really interested, I only have 2,427 more keys to go,,,hahaha....

I am redoing my site so if the colors don't match, don't worry they will, haha...Enjoy! Sandi
Thanks for dropping by!

What a cool way to use left over keys. I don't know why, but we seem to have a bunch of them in our house, too. Thanks for sharing this great idea! Very pretty! :)
