“Mood Pillow”


The story of the Mood Pillow, as related in Little Women, is that when a “sausage” pillow such as this was placed upright on the couch, it meant that Jo March (aka Louisa) was happy; when the pillow was on its side, the observer had best beware, for Louisa was in one of her “moods.”

This pillow is such a fun and unique gift!  As such, it is also one of the most popular items in our Museum Store.

9” W x 21”H; zippered cover for easy washing.  Assorted colors; for details regarding pattern selection, please phone 978.369.4118 x107 or view samples here.
