I have been asked many times, "Who are Mavis & Harriet anyway?"
Well, it all started many years ago....
Once upon a time, there were 2 little 4 year old girls, best friends, one sweet brother and a mom.
The girls were constantly wanting the "mom" to play with them, babies, dress up anything!! Well, the mom decided why not make playing time fun time for her too:). So... she had them playing beauty shop, they would give mom a facial, blow dry her hair, put her makeup on, curl her hair all while mom could relax on the couch and read a magazine just giving enough orders to them to let them know she was really playing with them. They loved it! She loved it! I had to name everyone so I called my daughter "Mavis" and her bestest friend we called "Harriet", sweet brother came in from time to time so we made him Mavis's husband "Henry". I was "Lucy", an old woman, grouchy, demanding, always wanting to know all their business! They would serve me wonderful treats from their little french cafe they called, "OOOoo La La". Everyone was happy and this continued for several years, in fact we still play this! I remember playing at the beauty shop every Friday afternoon while my mom had her hair fixed, cutting out pictures out of magazines, paper dolls....
I thought, if I ever have a business we will use the name "Mavis & Harriet" to remind of us that the most important factor is to have fun!!! I have to say, I am having a blast with "Mavis & Harriet and Henry" too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
