Dear Diva Readers,

top:5px;float:left;color:white;background:#781300;border:1px solid darkkhaki;font-size:100px;line-height:90px;padding-top:1px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>When my friend Gina posted pics of her living room on Facebook recently I was smitten with her living room makeover and instantly queried, “Where did you get that rug? – It’s the essence of modern chic!”  Gina’s reply had me stunned – “Would you believe, dear Diva” she wrote, I bought it at JC Penney!” 

I remember the JC Penney Catalog from my childhood – lying on the floor in front of the TV with their giant Christmas catalog open, flipping to the toy section.  I remember my mom buying undergarments there and that, spanning my entire childhood, my winter pajamas were from JCP.  When I got my first job right out of university and needed a professional coat, I bought a long, black wool coat for $99 at JCP.  I’ve even had my eyebrows done in the JC Penney’s hair salon … but JCP does home décor?? I never knew… and from the looks of that carpet I’ve been seriously missing out!  It’s time for me to rethink JCP! 

This Cindy Crawford lattice carpet has my name all over it!

And priced on sale between $39 and $379, depending upon size, it doesn’t break the bank!

Though in general I prefer to go with real fur, I was still smitten with this Faux Fox Tail pillow for only $16.99.

Another Diva-Find – this pair of Nail Head trimmed Storage Trunks in a gorgeous oyster color on Sale for $189!

It’s definitely time to rethink JCPenney!
