Skeleton Keys

Some of the keys I brought home from my father's collection.
He never walked past a key on the sidewalk...
I am linking this post with Rubbish Tuesday.

I have a collection of pretty little keys like that too...they mostly belonged to my mother in law. Actually..you have just reminded me... I have a collection of my father's now too! But he collected just about everything! My favourite image of yours is the second.

Great collection!
I'm sure it is quite a treasure to you too.

Those are really neat keys. And, how far have we come... now we can use a card to access a lock or use a fingerprint. Crazy.

I haven't seen a skeleton key in ages. These are neat old keys.

Skeleton keys are always a good conversation piece.

Fascinating subject they are. I was shocked when I was told that there were only 12 different keys for the original houses built in Stratford!

That was a net collection. My husband had a collection of railroad keys, but sold them.

Fantastic old keys! It makes you wonder what they all went to!

I've never seen a key on the sidewalk, come to think of it. :) I love old keys. A friend of ours once gave us a vintage jail cell key.

Thanks for stopping by to comment on my RT post.

Those are gorgeous. Things certainly are not made like that now days.

I love keys. Dad learned how to be a locksmith by mail!

Amazing old keys! As a child I have collected too (but my old things are all lost in the trouble of life)
