Key Dramas

The first big argument my husband and I had once we started living together was about keys. My husband is a tidy person, if he sees keys lying around he will put them somewhere safe and logical, so he hangs them on the key hook in the kitchen. My mind didn’t use that logic though. If my keys weren’t exactly where I left them I’d assume they were in my bag, admittedly I didn’t always check, but being the only adult in my household for almost a decade makes you certain about these things. So in the first few weeks of living together I may have been locked out once or twice or made myself late tearing the house apart trying to find my keys, not looking on the key hook of course because I didn’t put them there. There may have been some shouting. As you can see I’m not that reasonable or easy to live with.

I’m much more reasonable about keys and key hooks now, but I’d prefer one of these designs than the small brass hooks the previous owner of our house installed.

I do like clouds and this cloud key holder by Suck UK is no exception, it has three strong magnets on the underside so your keys hang below like strange bolts of lightning.

Have a little sparrow as your key holder and you can slot him into his bird house when you get in and never lose your keys again. Available as double sparrows for £19.99 or a single sparrow for £12.50 so you can have one for each person you live with.

Alternatively hang your keys on these wild animal ends, choose from heads or tails or get both and put on opposite sides of the wall so it looks like they are walking through. The Pack Rack is by Steph Mantis who also does really cool magnet versions.

I think I prefer the tail ends, what about you?
