Penney's, Anyone?

I heart JC Penney's. There - I said it. Its a new love that started today. I can't tell you how many years ago was the last time I placed foot in a Penney's. My best guess would be about 13 years. My mother in law showed me the light. She busted our her JC Penney's catalog when I was asking her where we should get new sheets for the guest bed. After we took a look at the sheets I decided to see what else they had to offer. I was able to find many items that I have loved from Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel at a fraction of the price. So far, here is my wish list:

1.) Pedestal table plus 4 chairs (for the kitchen). We'll use our Pottery Barn table as the dining table.
2.) Entry table
3.) 3 faux topiary decor (yeah, I don't need it but I really liked them)
4.) side table for our leather chair which will be going in the living room

And the grand total you ask? Roughly $1,000. Lets just say a very similar table and chairs alone at Pottery Barn was $1,200.

On a side note, Rob and I ordered a huge sectional today in San Francisco at Customs House. This place is awesome. They custom make furniture at a fraction of what it would cost at retail stores. We got to decide how big it would be, how deep (cushions), fabric, color of couch and legs, firmness etc. Our couch is going to be so pretty and comfy! Oh and Rob ordered his 60 inch Plasma TV from some store in NY that he was referred to us by Keith. Apparently this place has great prices so if you are in need of a new TV, let me know and I'll get you the name. Also, NY has no sales tax (or if it does, for some reason we weren't charged any).

Next on the list: patio furniture!
