18-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Tuesday, November 11, 1913: Nothing, nothing.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Since Grandma did “nothing” a hundred years ago today, I’m going to share some fun drawings from a November, 1913 article in Ladies Home Journal about the right way to hang pictures.
How Shall I hang My Pictures?
In the furnishing of any room the question of the proper selection and hanging of pictures is one which should be given careful consideration.
Probably the most common mistake in home furnishing is the use of too many pictures. A wall crowded with odd-sized pictures, usually of indiscriminate selection, produces the most confusing and annoying effect.
Hmm. . . the “right” way looks good to me–but I don’t keep up with decorating trends. Is this still the right way to hang pictures?
