This weekends fun find.... the cutest little hand carved Welsh Love Spoon.
A little history....
The carver of a love spoon would incorporate certain designs into his spoon, meant to convey a special meaning to the lucky recipient of the spoon. The spoon is symbolic and it tells the recipient that the he wishes to keep her and provide her with food and with everything else that she may need.
A heart told her that he was giving his heart to her.
The links in a chain told her how many children he wanted. A chain could also indicate the linking of their lives together.
A diamond shape cut into the spoon expressed the hope of good fortune and wealth.
The keyhole told her that his home was hers.
How sweet is that?
