A story passed down through generations of Alcott descendants concerns Louisa’s “sausage” pillow and its use as a family signal. When the pillow was placed upright on the couch, it meant that Louisa was happy, but when the pillow was on its side, the observer had best beware, for Louisa was in one of her “moods.” Many visitors to Orchard House have commented on just how useful such a pillow might be in the modern world. Whether or not it’s used in the same way, it serves as a happy reminder of Louisa May Alcott and her home, and makes for a unique and fun gift.
