Room No 824


Have you seen this ad in magazines lately?

Those are my grandmother's keys on top of the ad and I've always loved that heavy gold thing attached.  Back in 1987 she went on an Asian adventure and during that time, stayed in Taiwan's Grand Hotel.  This was their door key!  She loved it so much she asked if she could keep it, which they let her, but for $25.  Well, if you look closely, you'll see the same gold key in the ad.  But the best part?  It's the exact same room number!  824.  Such a neat coincidence.

Ok, that's pretty freaky how coincidental that is! But that key is really cool.

Oh, and thank you for being my ONE and ONLY follower of my Cayenne Paper blog {sniff, sniff}. xoxo ;)
