113 / Great-Grandma's Vintage Jewelry

On 3/13/13, my great-grandmother would have been 113. I'm lucky enough to have some memories of her. She was a lovely lady who kept bowls of favorite candies for each of her children in the cupboards. She wore a girdle two decades after women burned their bras, loved gladiolas, and I have benefited from her excellent taste in brooches. Bet she never dreamed she'd be getting 113th birthday wishes on a computer.
