Every weekend I try to go to the Melrose Flea Market where somehow there is always a treasure to be had. Well this time on the ground I spotted a old scrapbook. Seeing how I love old photos I picked it up and to my screaming delight ( actually I remained calm and quit, you know the louder the scream the higher the price ) I found some old post cards of my favorite hotel the Madonna Inn. So your thinking how can this be, well take a look. The old place has not changed and I'm not kidding since these pictures were taken. The Madonna Inn is three hours north of Hollywood on Highway 101 in San Luis Obispo. You can't help loving this place in all it's bad taste, over the top color, and fake everything. Somehow I think I see enough good design and tasteful beauty to really appreciate the vulgarity.
