Where it's Attic
You use your skeleton key to unlock the padlock on the attic trap door. Then you use your legs to climb the ladder into the attic. Then you use your stupidity to lose the skeleton key. Crap.
The cabin's attic is a mess of sheet-covered furniture and dusty boxes. People are such packrats.
You notice a stack of old photo albums piled under one of the eaves. Near the window, a music box plays an incessant tune in a minor key. A cardboard box labeled "wolfsbane (9 lb.)" sits near the trap door leading back downstairs.
You hear loud chirping noises coming from the rafters.
Turn off the music box
(as an accordion thief) When you think about it, a music box is a lot like an accordion. Remove a few key parts, and it stops making noise!
