Super clever idea! We used to keep,ours in some ornamental animals and they got covered with soil and webs and who wants to,risk getting bit from spiders hanging out with your keys? This provides a practical,way to hide keys that keeps them clean and easil accessible, especially if you need to get them at night. Such a clever idea. I am impressed and it looks fairly easy to make. Another great housewarming gift too!

This is so smart! Who would look under a plant? I think people usually look under a rock or a brick. Perfect and deceptive!
