My oldest daughter, who lives with me, loves to celebrate birthdays.  This is what I found on my kitchen table on Tuesday morning.

I collect items from an old Cincinnati dairy, French-Bauer – I remember watching their horse-drawn milk wagons when I was a child.   At one time, they also had a restaurant in downtown Cincinnati.  This is a tiny 4-1/2 inch ice-cream spoon from that restaurant and the name engraved on the back, “French Bros.-Bauer Co.” dates it to the mid-1920s before the name change.  This is a nice addition to the china pieces I already have.  My daughter definitely knows what I like.
