What did the tag on the magic key that worked say?

I do enjoy your bit-by-bit descriptions of design/decorating projects you undertake. I think we all do. (Brother Mat? Is this close enough to architecture to make it interesting to you too, even though there's still the "taint" of brocante involved?)

Ooooooh! I love "secret keys" and yes all those keys hold their own story. I wish we could discover them just by holding them tightly. But maybe our imagination is a happier experience than the reality. Am so enjoying this particular story.

How interesting. Love the decorating project and finding solutions for tiny rooms and three flights of narrow stairs.

Keys! Imagining the stories behind the keys. If only keys could talk. Susan

Sooooooooo fun! Did I come into this late and miss earlier references to this tiny house that's now being prepared???

love this post .... I love when a key finds the lock to which it belongs and opens the darkened space closed for some time-love this project too-did you paint the chair?

Bet this place would make a marvelous writer's retreat!

My mind works in such strange ways, and I have the dumbest question. Why did the key go back to the basement? Why did it not stay with the desk?

A lovely twist on those keys we all see! Were there any treasures inside the desk?

Lovely post Corey. x
P.S SO happy that Thierry has found love!

Oh, Corey, I can't wait to see it all! And the project started with the beautiful, antique key that went to the front door of the tiny house. I'm going to love it!!!!

What a magical, wonderful story...so easily could be a children's picture book with grand illustrations...
You take us all on some of the sweetest, memory making journeys, ever. Thank you for another blessing to start the day.

And, to Thierry. I send all good wishes for ever so much pure joy and happiness.


I wish I were a fly on the wall. Or a slave running errands up and down the stairs!

That is a great story! All of those antique keys became so useful.

A wonderful post!

Love this! Wish I was there! xo

LOVE when that happens!

and we all love following you on this project!
heaven sent!!

A very good question, actually!
