It is. Welcome :)

It seems as if you played with Etoys, which is an authoring  
environment aimed at elementary-school children written on top of  
Smalltalk. The boundaries between Etoys and the underlying system are  
not rigid, but typically one works either in the one or the other.

The Stack-related Morphs are experimental (and the experiment is long  
over). In the proper Etoys image they are not even shown.

I just redid your example in that image using a Playfield as holder  
for two buttons and a string. Storing the playfield as morph and  
loading it back worked fine (although the "save in file" menu is  
considered advanced usage and hence hidden by default). See attachment.
