does it have the chops?

maison21 is on the fence on this one- he loves the idea of a budget version of a lalane sheep bench for those of us who somehow didn't manage to score one at the yves saint laurent auction, but he's a bit put off by the velveteen face and legs- a little too stuffed toy-ish to be taken seriously. metal, wood or even resin painted to look like bronze might be preferable, he thinks. then again, maybe he's being too picky, as the stuffed animal loving kid inside him kinda wants one anyway...
gentle ewe bench, $525.00, from the source perrier collection

*** m21 apologizes- somehow, between posting this last night, and this morning, when he went to buy one (after being tipped off SP was going out of business- thanks vicki!) source perrier has sold out of the bench! m21 is going to leave the posting up, and if anyone sees this offered elsewhere, would you please let us know?

Christian--these goats are phenomenal!!I would get some, but I think that Jones would be jealous. Have a great week-end.

My, but those are a bit unusual....and I just received an email yesterday from SP telling me that they are going out of business and selling what remains online @ an additional 60% off! Sad to see them go!

Hope you get one of the benches if it truly is your hearts desire! Have a wonderful weekend!

I love you, but thats frightening!

i think they kinda look creepy.
save your money and wait to get a lalane.

Just fyi, none of YSL's sheep were offered at the auction. The YSL bar and his hall of Lalane mirrors all were, but it looks like Pierre kept the sheep for himself. I know, because I was looking for them myself!

mary- i wonder if mona's instincts would kick in, and she'd attempt to herd them...

vickie h- thanks for the tip! i returned to source perrier this morning after i rcvd your comment, and found they are no longer available. if i had known, i would have bought one earlier- i really can't decide if i like or not, but 60% off would have helped make up my mind. oh well- there are other sheep in the pasture...

sketch 42- i hear ya- remember i said i'm on the fence! ;-)

rudy- you are right- i should take the advice i often give to clients and not settle for something i really don't want, just because it's cheap!

billy- i was bummed too, that no sheep were on the block at YSL (not that i could have afforded to by one anyway)!

I would love to see what Mona decided to do about them. Herd or Cuddel with...Hmmmm.

She really is a star with that smiley face.

They look like the sort of thing that may very well turn up on the HSN. With a little luck... your cable might be down.)

if these things are goats, then you should not read my food blog adventure with goats.

no, I can't do those, I don't care how chic the real ones are, those will scare you in the middle of the night when you go to the bathroom!
