House of 1,000 Cherubs


As it turns out, Jayne Mansfield's bedroom was only the tip of the heart-shaped iceberg. That bathroom!

Augh, this is my favorite post! I'm so into that kitschy LA style, I'm always on the lookout for such gems. That heart-shaped pool is killing me.

Ohhh my god her house is so cool. I really don't like thinking about some dickhole moving in there later and "updating it". If you haven't heard of the Madonna Inn, you should look at these untouched masterpieces: http://www.madonnainn.com/features.php
The caveman! If only they had a Jayne Mansfield room. Or a room based on Michelle Pfeiffer/Selina Kyle/Catwoman's apartment. So sick.

Kathryn-I love the Madonna Inn! I've been dying to visit for years. Thanks for posting that link though, I've never looked at all the rooms before. I think the "hearts and flowers" room is my favorite!

i looked into this home hoping it still existed and learned engelbert humperdink bought it and then SOLD IT WHEN HE THOUGHT HE SAW JAYNE MANSFIELDS GHOST. Thanks to this insanity this treasure has been eradicated. It no longer exists :((((((

oh my god. for some reason, after all of it, the inlaid heart on the outside fireplace is what got me?

I believe that's little Mickey Jr. and Mariska wasn't born yet. The little girl was another relative I think that was living with them. Sadly, the house isn't standing any longer. I almost wish it was.
