366 Challenge 162: Keyhole (also Ordlös Onsdag)



This is the keyhole to the chest I posted on Sunday. I was taking pictures of this keyhole for the 366 challenge, but then I only found the theme key in the list, so didn't use it. Today, when I thought: "Oh, it can be my Wordless Wednesday contribution then, I found the theme keyhole in the themelist, so now I am actually going to post it for both. But it's not as such a wordless contribution today *but I'll promise, not a word next week...*, I also realized that the chest has a little bit more story to go with this picture.

Part from being transported home from an auction by my father in law on a bicycle, my husband and his brother also managed to lock a baby sitter in the chest on one occasion! I hope my son doesn't inherit the adventurous side of my husband...

Normally Ordlos Onsdag contributions are viewed here, but today we have a stand in.

Otroligt vacker i färg och form. Det är så kul at upptäcka mer när man kommer ner på "djupet"!

Oj, de nykkelhålet började inte användas i går utan har funnits och slitits i århundranden, vilken platina!

Malin said...

Mimo said...

Ett sånt vackert nyckelhål. Man undrar spontant var det sitter. Ser ut som på ett blåmålat dalaskåp eller en brudkista kanske?

A great photo mia. Very nicely framed. The colours and especially the structure of the wood and the metal comes out very nicely. Even better so with a bit of history behind the picture.

(I didn't know O had it in him to do things like that. I'm SHOCKED! ;-) )

Vacker bild som gör att man blir väldigt nyfiken på hur resten ser ut...

Ninni said...

Fast nrä jag kikade lite mera på din sida så såg jag. Är nyckelhålet från brudkistan?
Fin sida du har!

Can you imagine all of the hands that have handled this chest and turned a key in this keyhole? It's a beautiful photo.
