Once Upon a Time...
“Once Upon A Time Every Child Had Warm Cozy Pajamas
and Listened To A Bedtime Story While Tucked Snugly In Their Beds.”
I just came back from my first public 'show' of my quillos and am delighted to tell you that it was a resounding success! Not only that, but I had an opportunity to visit my Mom and spend some quality time together. You may not believe it, but I was so busy, I forgot to take pictures of my table display!
When my mother contacted me about selling my quillos at The Pajama Programfundraiser, I was not sure what to expect. Because it was a good cause that my Mom has sponsored for the past 9 years, and we got a chance to spend time together, I said YES! And I am so glad that I did. If you have never heard of the Program, you can check out their website for more information.
When I was setting up my booth, I was in a panic for a dish that would hold my business cards. Leave it to my mom to show up with a sterling silver "Calling Card" dish that belonged to my grandmother.
Rules for Calls and Leaving Cards
A lady would start making calls as soon as she arrived in Town, to notify everyone that her family had arrived. She remained in her carriage while her groom took her card and handed it in.
Cards from visitors were placed on a silver salver in the entry hall--the more impressive names displayed on top. The trays had a pie-crust rim so the cards would not slip off.
What a perfect way to display my cards!
Because I was able to sell so many quillos, I will be giving one away again!
I have 3 nominees for the "Spread the Aloha" program and will be announcing the recipient in my next email.
If you know of someone who could use some comfort while undergoing chemotherapy, or suffering a loss in their lives, you can nominate them using this link.
