Love Spoons

Some of you might not be aware of these, luckily for you, I am going to tell you!
My gran gave me the two love spoons in the picture above when I was about 18 years old.

These wooden love spoons were given to loved ones in the 17th century as a symbol of love!
The idea behind giving a love spoon originated in Wales. Back then, they actually used these spoons, today they are given as gifts or collected and not used for dining purposes.
I wouldn't mind more beautiful love spoons instead of a bunch of flowers. Flowers die. Point made. :)
