Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Since Grandma didn’t write much a hundred years ago today, I’m going to share some adorable pictures of baby caps and bonnets that were in the December, 1913 issue of Ladies Home Journal. According to the magazine:
Something pretty for the baby’s Christmas gift usually means a piece of dainty hand work. Illustrated are two lovely crocheted caps lined with soft silk, and two others which are made of handkerchiefs.
