Avon Calling!! Or I Made The Paper!

Our favorite Avon lady, Deby, had a fabulous article written about her and Avon for The Athens Banner Herald. It's a great story about Deby's journey as an Avon representative and the history of Avon. She needed a picture of her delivering Avon to someone and called me. I, of course, said YES! I would love to do it!

Here's the link to the article: Avon Calling.

Interesting facts:

A MAN began Avon.

It began in the late 1800s. (Mary Kay, for instance, didn't start until the 60's!) So it's been around for a VERY long time.

Deby was, at one time, the 55th top Avon rep IN THE WORLD! I find that amazing!

I had someone call me, on the OFFICE phone, looking for an Avon rep! I was like, Uh, I sell insurance, but here's Deby's number! LOL

Maybe I need to sign up, too, though....


  1. You look beautiful! What a great picture and how FUN to be in the paper!

    Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

  2. Nice article! You look pretty in your cardigan!

  3. You are a great model!! I have some earrings that I got from Avon and I think I get more compliments on them than any pair I have...and they were only $5.

  4. Lovely! I know exactly why Deby called you--bright clothes, bright smile.

  5. How the heck did you find time to write a blog during the day?

    I need to re-think Avon. I'm considering it and JustJewelry.

  6. This is making me rethink Avon, too.

    Wow, Joy... you are so famous!

  7. I love reading about self-made women. So inspirational! You look beautiful in the photos - the colors in your sweater are so pretty!

    I'm not surprised she asked you to be in the photos - you are very photogenic. :)

  8. I love avon's lip-sticks, their anti-wrinkle stuff and of course Rich Moisture Cream!
    My Mom has worn it my entire life!!!
