Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Even farm magazines got into the Christmas spirit a hundred years ago. Since Grandma didn’t write anything specific for today, I thought you might enjoy this old Kimball’s Dairy Farmer cover.

Isn’t that sweet? Oh, for a simpler time….with simpler toys.
We’ve lost something over the years. The holidays were so much less commercialized back then.
May you and yours have the very best the Holiday Season has to offer!!
I love doll houses – I even have a duplicate of the one I had as a child. Merry Christmas Sheryl !
Wow, it’s awesome that you have a doll house that is identical to the one you had as a child. I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas.
Hi Sheryl. I also hope you’ve had a great Christmas … Not over yet! Jane
Love me a good dollhouse. Merry Christmas!
Doll houses are a wonderful way to encourage children’s imaginations. I hope that you had an awesome Christmas.
The spirit of Christmas is so strong in that long-ago photo. Merry Christmas to you Sheryl and thank you for all the wonderful sharing.
And, Merry Christmas to you. I’m so fortunate to have gotten to know you and other wonderful people via our blogs.
Kimball Company of Waterloo, IA. Just down the road a piece.
I thought that it was interesting that the magazine cover indicates that the Kimball Company was located in “Waterloo, Iowa, U.S.A.” The U.S.A. at the end makes me wonder if the magazine had an international circulation.
My folks subscribed to the Prairie Farmer magazine. They had a photo contest my folks entered with this picture of me. It won $5 for them.
The picture is wonderful. Thanks for sharing it. I can see why it won. You were adorable. I wonder how long the pig stayed in the wagon before jumping out.
Wishing you & yours a Very Safe and Merry Christmas. 🙂
Thank you–we had a wonderful Christmas. I’m a little late responding to comments–but I’d like to also like to wish you a Merry Christmas.
Such a lovely dollhouse – they would have been lucky kids!
It is a beautiful dollhouse–and it looks like it was handmade which make it even more special.
