‘Way Back When’sday: Child’s Food Pusher Utensil

Babies in the Victorian Era had child-sized utensils, just like children do today.

The child’s table service below is on display
at the Bernhard Museum in Auburn, California.

Child's Table Service

While touring the museum, the docent pointed out the utensil
to the left of the cup. It’s call a food pusher.

Food Pusher

This special utensil helped a child transition from eating with the fingers
to using silverware. The youngster would use a food pusher to load
a bite onto a fork or spoon. Clever, isn’t it?


What unique utensils from yesteryear have you discovered?

Mailbag Monday: How to Send a Laugh

Do you have a friend who could use a laugh?

Here’s a simple three-step plan for sending one via snail mail.

1. Buy a bag of Laffy Taffy

2. Slap on some address labels and the appropriate amount of postage.

3. Flip the package over and add a label with a note of encouragement.

4. Drop the package in the mail.

Laffy Taffy 2

The idea for sending a laugh came about because one of my friends who writes witty romantic comedies was on deadline and feeling the stress. I wandered through our local dollar store in search of just the thing to send her. I saw this bag of Laffy Taffy, and my hunt was over.

Question for You

Think of a friend of yours who could use a laugh.
What would you write on your encouraging note?
