If you have been over to Susan's at Between Naps On The Porch then I am sure you have met Jean Claude! I have wanted a Jean Claude forever it seems like. At least 6 years or more. All the Jean Claude's that we ever found were always well over $100! Hence the reason why I never got one. This past week I did find Pierre on the Williams Sonoma site but geez he is $80 and well just not quite whimsy enough for me. He seems like a stuffy pig chef if you ask me.
Meet the newest member to our family Pierre! The boys and I had to run over to Costco across town....urgh... and so afterwards we decided...I decided...to stop in a store called Garden Ridge. I had not been in one in over 7 years and they were starting to close up shop but I guess business picked back up because they took over the old The Great Indoors. We spent over an hour just looking around. I found a patio umbrella and some new cushions for the patio once we have the $$ and I finish revamping our existing set. On the way to the register to purchase some fabric...yes they even have fabric scraps....I stopped dead in my tracks. There was Pierre! I picked him up and he had a price tag of $40 which I thought at first was rather expensive because if HobLob had a Pierre he would be 40% off sometime this month since he is poly resin. I quickly got over the fact that I was NOT at HobLob and that all things considered $40 was pretty inexpensive for Pierre. Pierre hopped right in our cart along with my 6 yards of decorators weight fab for less than $20. I would show ya a pic but I accidently deleted it a minute ago and well to add it back in I would have to redo all the pics. Not gonna happen.
Oldest is already putting Pierre to good use. He reminded me that Thursday was Pizza day at school and for me not to pack his lunch!:) Pierre has yet to find a permanent home in the kitchen but I think he will fit right in where ever he ends up!
