Hundred-Year-Old Holly Centerpieces

Sunday, December 21, 1913:  Went to Sunday School this morning. Spent the day in a lonesome way, any how this afternoon seemed that way.

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Sounds like a boring Sunday. Did Grandma consider making of the holly centerpieces featured in the December, 1913 issue of Ladies Home Journal?
