Am I The Only One Who Didn't Know?

Do you know what a "doyenne" is?

I bet most of you do... but I didn't.
I had to look it up on an internet dictionary.
Then I had to find one that would pronounce it for me.


I read that homemaker "doyenne" Martha Stewart 
is going to develop some sort of mini-shops 
within the J.C.Penney stores.

Check out my blog next week when I share my terrarium.
I might even share a photo of me making it.
After all I am a "doyenne" too!

Yes, I am the "old woman" in my group,
and we can both (sorta) wear yellow!
Btw... I am much younger!

Okay... back to Martha.

Wasn't she selling things for Macy's?
So now it appears that Macy's just may be 
suing "doyenne" Stewart.

If you have some time on your hands 
and want to read more about that, 
just click here.

But I bet you'd rather know a little more 
about saving money at J.C.Penney.
If you even shop there...

I am not really sure that lowering their prices 
is what people really want from that store.
I for one, would like more.

Anyway... back to the big news.

All merchandise will be marked down by 40% 
and they will have Every Day, Month-Long Values
and Best Prices after the initial 40% reduction.

Sounds kind of like WalMart to me.
But apparently they will go through all merchandise 
prices from last year and actually reduce it.

Not last years merchandise, but the prices they 
charged for those items last year, and then those 
reduced prices will be the Every Day prices.

Still sounds like a "sale" to me... 
"Month-Long Values" and then the 
"Best Prices" for all the clearance items.

Now, if you really have a lot of free time 
and just need to know more... 
go to this Yahoo article for more details.


I'd rather you just check out the following link!

Interesting. I think poor Martha has had her day in the spotlight. There are so many bloggers now out there more talented than she is. She is great--but I think time to retire maybe?!

I have had my ups and downs with her, but on a whole I think she did a lot for those who wanted to make beautiful home.

Hi Bunny,

Thanks for you visit and telling me about the groomers and the shots. I didn't know that!

I like Martha....she is what she is.

Darling post!

Thanks for the scoop on the JCPenney prices. I'm a fan of Martha's decorating style and have a couple of her books. I also read her biography before she was charged with insider trading. I'll always be a Martha fan. I did think it weird that both she and her daughter dated the same man (not at the same time though). That's a cute pic of you, by the way.
