a small key



“The key to your universe is that you can choose.” ~ Frederick (Carl) Frieseke
“In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
“A small key opens big doors.” ~ Turkish Proverb

You must have known I acquired 8 antique keys will on vacation. I plan them to be parts of quilts.

Keys are very magical. Thanks for posting those two great quotes. I use them in my work all the time. I'm always wondering who used the keys and what door they did indeed open.

aren't old keys just the best? There is something so special about them. I love how elaborate they can be.

wonderful quotes! Old keys are steeped with mystery and stories. Who lost them? What did they open.....

Wise words indeed. This reminds me, I've recently found a key ring loaded with vintage keys; need to use them in some projects.

Oh I love old keys too, they are mysterious in themselves, great quotes too. I love your staircase walls.
