19-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Tuesday, July 7, 1914: Nothing doing.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Since Grandma didn’t have much to say a hundred years ago today, I’m going to share some pictures of floral arrangements in baskets.
According to the June, 1914 issue of Ladies Home Journal:
If one can afford to have only a few receptacles for flowers, then baskets would well be chosen. Nowadays the shops show inexpensive shapes to meet every requirement, and the clever woman will not find them difficult to make.
