Palm Springs: Part 3

On day three of the last day of our trip, we decided to sleep in, have breakfast and go on our merry way.  I made sure to take more pictures of the Tropics hotel before leaving.  There was so much more we could have done and seen but we were both coming down with colds and were ready to go home by day three.  There is so much potential at the Tropics hotel.  They are in the middle of a renovation of their hotel restaurant and bar area, but we however think they could go a little further and maybe update the rooms.  The interiors and furnishings of the rooms were pretty standard and really nothing special.  Definitely not even photo worthy.  However here are some exterior photos I thought I should share.

We came across Anna Nicole's cemented hand prints located near the pool.  

After coming home and doing a little research I found this clip online of her  visiting the hotel. I see she had a somewhat similar stance on the hotel rooms.

This really made me sad.  This poor tiki is rotting away.

I love the name of the bar and hope it keeps with their renovation.

Our big purchase from the trip, was more inspired by the trip itself and not even purchased in Palm Springs.  After reading this blog by Sara at No Pattern Required, and seeing how expensive vintage sputnik chandeliers were priced at in the vintage stores of Palm Springs, we were sold on the idea of purchasing one from Lowe's instead.  Being that we are renters at the moment, we will have to wait until we purchase our first house together to display the lamp.  We are however happy we purchased it when we did as there were none in the store we visited in San Diego and nearest store only had two in stock! We figured the best idea would be to purchase one now in case Lowe's ends up discontinuing them in their stores.  I can't wait to put this up!

Till' Next Time,
