madonna inn

madonna suite chair
Jeff and I spent Saturday night in the Madonna Suite at the Madonna Inn. Since my ideal hotel room involves hot pink carpet, rocks, crystal chandeliers, and waterfalls in the bathroom, I was most pleased.

It was our second wedding anniversary. Long-time readers may remember that we stayed in the Caveman Room on our honeymoon. I definitely think the Madonna Suite was the right choice for this trip; it's sort of the Caveman Room, grown up a bit.

Creatively speaking, I'm in a nose-to-the-grindstone kind of mood. I'm trying to finish up the Big Toy (did I mention he was big?) and get started on some new, exciting stuff, too. I think I'm going to take an official break for a few weeks (as opposed to the unofficial break I took for the last two weeks, heh) and get stuff done. I may post on flickr in the meantime. See you in a bit!

Happy anniversary!

The Madonna Inn is my Disneyland - one of the happiest places on earth. Just can't go wrong with a waterfall in the bathroom.

If it weren't for the fact that you've obviously been there I wouldn't have believed that such a place existed! Wow! It's the Yosemite Room for me. :)

A very happy anniversary to you both!!!

Right after I graduated from college (a bazillion years ago!) I tagged along with my parents on a two-week business trip to California. My mom and I played while my dad was stuck in meetings... (I figured it was my last chance for a free vacation before entering the real world...)

One of the highlights was stopping in and eating at the Madonna Inn (although, I don't remember for the life of me which restaurant it was in which we ate!) It was so nice to be reminded of the Madonna with this post... Thank you!

Hello Jess, OT (off topic) have yo considered an electronic version of your book to sell online, I belong to the Knifty Knitter loom group and a member there is requesting a copy, and when I searched the web , it seems others that got it state they were fortunte to get one of the last ones, so just a thought on the electronic version, get it done once and you would have the electronic file forever to sell whereever (eBay etc)

My husband and I also stayed a the
Madonna Inn. We got the Mountain Cabbin room. We also got to meet Mr. Madonna at dinner. He came by our table and asked what we were having for dinner. Loved it!!!!

First went to the Madonna Inn in about 1960, I think... maybe 1965. Clearly this is Madonna Madonna, and not Virgin Madonna!! (took me a while.)
So what do the rest of us need to do to encourage you to reprint Unusual toys to knit... Saw a great example via Flickr, tracked you down... and piffle! sniff, sniff.
Glad you enjoyed comic con.
