Greetings from Niagara Falls!


We’re home from our road trip to Niagara Falls.

And slowly we turn . . . step by step . . . inch by inch . . . back to the ordinary things like dishes and laundry.

(Extra points if you’re old enough to recognize that quote.)

I bought myself a souvenir before we even got there. Because I am a total sucker for vintage souvenirs, you know.

In a cute little antique shop in Canandaigua, I found these salad servers. They’re never-used and still in the box!


Space-age Styron plastic, that is. Were these a gift for somebody back home—the new mother-in-law, perhaps?—who thought they were just too nice to actually use?

American-made, of course.


Yes, I’d love to know what else MS Products produced!

And so pretty with the hand-painted scenes.


Looks like a view from the river—American Falls on the left there, Horseshoe Falls in the background. Such delicate details!

The back of the handles is all crystal-ly for a good grip.


Let’s add a spinach salad and wish we were still on vacation!
