{friday faves} skeleton keys

happy friday!!!
today's faves were inspired by my amazing friend sofia who commented on last week's ff post {old doors} saying "I see an old door used as table for favors with old vintage keys and locks" . vintage keys of course...i love that.  so to continue with her idea i gathered a collection of different ideas where old skeleton keys are perfect way to add a vintage touch to your wedding.  
can you guess with one is my ultimate favorite one?

want to diy with skeleton keys? 
why not try rubber stamping the skeleton key onto a manila tags for guest favors or cute place cards.
