How To Tell If It’s Wednesday . . .

The Boston Advertising Agency of this commercial was looking for authenticity – so they chose Mary Fiumara, the mother in the commercial, that lived on Prince Street in Boston and the little boy is Anthony Martignetti who also moved to Prince Street from Italy a few years before being chosen for this commercial. Mary was a second mom to everyone in the neighborhood, Anthony said in an article after Mary’s death at age 88 in 2016 – that she would ask him everyday “How you doin’ Anthony?” “can I buy you want an ice cream?” A real South Side of Boston Mom.

When planning a marketing campaign – sometimes the most simple and truest events in life become the best experiences for others to watch. In 1985 Prince Pasta Company tried to recapture that same experience – with failure! It has to be real – it has to be authentic, has to hit you in the heart – enough to share and talk about it. I believe it failed because it did not have the two people that shared a neighborhood, that have that care and concern for each other. My take away from studying this concept of marketing, don’t just look for all the pretty, the glamour, and the luxury of an image or a setup. Yes, it is beautiful to look at, but mix in – The Real – The True – The Simple that speaks to hearts and makes people want to share – just like they share all the cute puppy and baby sleeping images – that’s the real life.

Wednesdays have always been “Prince Spagetti Days” in our house growing up – what about yours?

Home Decorating In The 1940s

grab a cup and a seat Grab a seat and cup of coffee . . . it’s always on!

1940 Retro Decorating Style

Overshadowed by World War II, home design in the early 1940s was quite creative. As the European designers and artists fled to the United States, bringing many new ideas, development of new designs remained at a stalemate until shortly after the war ended. This was primarily due to material shortages. As production picked back up, people were ready to start new lives, which included Redesigns of the homes, especially rooms that would accompany guests.

Fabrics
Floral patterns were popular for bedrooms, living areas and wallpapered bathrooms. For the kitchen and dining room we had cherry or apple motifs, gingham, or checks, with roosters and chickens. I am still loving the roosters!

Furniture
While primarily mix with the 1950s, it was the 1940s that introduced chrome dinette sets with Formica tabletops, as well as glass drawer pulls, and chrome and vinyl stools, into the home. Bentwood furniture – made by soaking or steaming wood and bending it into curved shapes and patterns – were coming into fashion.

Flooring
Linoleum – especially in bold geometric patterns – was top choice for the kitchen. The material was strong and lasted many years, despite the fact it required lots of regular maintenance to keep it clean and shiny.

New Technologies
The 1940s brought to market the wooden radios and phonograph consoles, as well as fabric covered televisions to add luxury to a room. Families would often sit together to hear or see shows with their fashionable TV Trays (my grandmother bragged that hers had wheels), and guests would be included for momentous events.

Colors
The decade was riding on the edge of two primary color palettes. Art Deco – included the ’20s through the early ’40s and reflected a shift to lighter and brighter, more neutral shades with metallic undertones. Pastels were a huge favorite for home interior decorators.

Overall Look
While the mid- to late-1940s introduced many new design concepts and materials, most households still kept it simple when it came to the overall look of a room. Primary focus was put on the family – open space was key. Even in modest homes, updates were often made to “enliven” the look in the home turning the focus from wartime; sad and dark rooms to peacetime; happy and colorful interiors. Clutter-free was key, even in family rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms as everything had its place. Living a free and simply life with clarity and purpose . . . That’s the Life of The Successful!

Don’t Worry . . . Be Connected!

Wednesday-Quotes

Many women today constantly worry and ask themselves, “Are my career and children in conflict with one another?” Women now dominate the workplace, and at the same time they want their children to thrive. That tension creates guilt and lack of faith. Women wonder, “Is my success at work disrupting my children’s development?”

The key to overcoming this worry and fear is to stop multitasking – it doesn’t work, and to be present in the moment. In other words, when you’re with your children, really be with them. Make it quality time and connect at a deeper level. As a former teacher one pet-peeve that would upset me is when a child waited all day to see their parent and the parent shows up to pick up the child with a phone on the ear – not connecting with their “eager-to-see and love-you- child” .

Turn off the cell phone, computer and television so that you can devote all your attention to your children. Read to your child, go on great adventures together – even if that’s just consist of a trip through the backyard, and always tell them how much you love them. Do whatever you can to build memories with them.

If you’re going away on a business trip:

  • make a calendar
  • for the two weeks leading up to the trip
  • mark off the days together

This will help young children understand how days begin and end so that your time away won’t seem so long. Older children will experience less anxiety while you’re away because they’ll have had adequate preparation for the deployment. Then, while you’re away, set a time each day to do video conference calls (https://www.skype.com) with your children.

If you don’t travel but must work long hours, having a daily video conference with your children is a great way to build connection during the day. Ultimately, the more love and connection children feel, the less worry and fear you will have about impeding your children’s development.
