Safe Keeping

One of the first things we ever brought up the house was an antique, heart-shaped lock that we found in Maine. We loved it the moment we saw it and had a stand made for it back in the New York. We love how it represents safety, from belongings to the heart, and we seem to gravitate toward other pieces that seem represent security, somehow...
