Teapot and key
Below it on the shelf you can see a key stitched in outline. This is the only interesting key I have (plenty of Yale and boring double glazing keys of course) and it's in my collection of small and interesting things.
Laura Kemshall does excellent things with keys, both printing fabric and stitching them into her work; it's a recurring theme. Keep your eyes open on the Sixandfriends blog. I love keys too and the one above is going to be the key to someone's heart.....not sure just yet how I'm going to symbolise that one!
I'm also working (as we speak, one hand on the keyboard, the other on the iron!) on a postcard which will be pinned to the shelf and which says: "Your courage, Your cheerfulness, Your resolution, Will Bring Us Victory." Of course it will :)
Oh, and just peeping out next to the collected Jane Austen novels, is The Joy of Sex!
