Recent Random Finds: Life-size Llama & friends

I've been a little tied up lately and I haven't been able to blog as often as I would like, so I have a bit of a backlog of recent random finds.  Please to enjoy.

Llama from Paul & Joe Sister.  Apparently the designer brought it over from France to decorate the store, but it is for sale.  For $3,500.  More than I can spend on a life-size llama, even one made from real llama wool.  But how great would this be in a kid's room... or my living room?  Want! 

I spotted this mirror at the open house of a gorgeous 1931 Spanish style home on Doheny just above Sunset.  It's a trust sale, and I believe the contents will be sold by Huntington Library? Really want! 

Stunning red bench, from a store on Beverly that I have somehow forgotten the name of - a first for me!

I do know that the store above is right by my favorite store on Beverly, E-Mosaik:

I just bought this "Eight-Arms Hook" from Anthropologie, $48, great for displaying jewelry, or for catching keys by an entryway:

Also spotted at Anthropologie, these amazing paintings in the background of a catalogue shoot. No idea who they are by, but I'd really love to know!

I stopped by a new store on Fairfax (previously on Melrose) yesterday called Jeff (529 N. Fairfax), and found another couple of items for my never-ending wish list!

Lucite towel or quilt holder, would also be great to display scarves or ties in a deluxe dressing room:

Incredible rocking... crib I guess?  With the right custom cushions, and maybe a paint job (maybe) I feel like this could actually be a great practical nursery item?  Love it!  $600:

Great brass coffee table:

How darling are these?  I've never seen anything like them!

Beautiful sconces, I believe $3,000 for the pair, or was it $3,000 each?!

Amazing eagle weathervane:

I introduced my parents to Wertz, and they loved it as much as I do.  "Heathcliff" went home with them:

As did these monkeys, which I really wanted to come home with me instead!

Love this painting:

This "cast iron Japanse lady" is kind of awesome:

Fabulous marble-topped table:

Really drawn to this, not sure why:

The "General" on the right was a gift to me from Mum & Dad, thanks parents!

Lastly this gorgeous headboard.  I can't for the life of me remember where I spotted it (bad blogger!), but I'd like to have something like it made one day...
