Key Art...

I have finally got around to a little art piece that has been on the drawing board for ages. I bought this frame from a discount shop months ago, waiting on finding some vintage skeleton keys.

Unfortunately, the real thing is a bit spendy - if you can even find them. I settled for the three largest of these:

         (Purchased from Twilight Crafts while at the Esk retreat.)

I used some paper scraps with text (that I already had) that fitted ...

and Voila! More art for my house. Which I need. 'Cause you can still see bits of the wall in some places.

So I had a little accessory re-arrange and made my linen chest vignette a bit more Autumnal.

Roll on cooler weather. More time for projects!
Stay warm.
