I have a real problem when it comes to antique skeleton keys. I cannot leave an antique shop without buying at least one, and I'm always on the look out when perusing garage sales and thrift stores. I seem to have amassed quite the collection over the past few years, but I just can't help myself from looking for more.
For me, the part romantic part creepy aspect of a skeleton key is just perfect for harnessing the feel of fall. Here are some very lovely options brought to you via etsy. I'm salivating a little just looking at the photos.
