Today was one of those mornings I woke up with a stomachache: I had to find papers for my car that I misplaced. Whoops. After forcing myself to get out of bed and telling myself that perhaps I could find them by picturing them visually in my head and voila, they would appear in that place, I went over to start cleaning off the office desk in the attempt to find them. I did, eventually find them (go Olivia!), but in the process, I also found an old memento. My NovelKey. NovelKeys, which are handmade in Providence, Rhode Island, are keychains that look like little books and have quotes on them. The one I have is Edith Wharton (one of my favs) and the quote on the back says, "There are two ways of spreading the light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."

They have a huge variety of authors, poets, statesman, etc. that it would be odd if you didn't find one you or your friend didn't like. Some of my favorites are,

I think these are an adorable little "I'm thinking of you" gift for a friend, or for yourself. They happen to be a beautiful pewter color, too, so they look great as a keychain. I love mixing modernity and traditional, classic pieces of history. I think NovelKeys is a great, classic, and very smart and creative independent company. They definitely hold the key to creativity!

PS. Also check out, NovelTeas, MusiKeys (love these too!!), and NovelStops.
