What's your love token?

The rest of what they had to say --

Young men would spend their time aboard ships carving these elaborate constructions from a single piece of wood. The more intricate the spoon, the longer the voyage. Different symbols embedded within the carving speak to a secret language between two lovers: flowers for affection, diamonds for wealth and good fortune, an anchor for a guy who's eager to settle down.

You may or may not be in a long-distance relationship, but like the Welsh sailors and their sweethearts, you believe in patience and loyalty. You're probably less into short term flings and more into finding the right person. Patient and down-to-earth, you might wait forever for your crush to notice you and steadily work to win their heart. It goes the opposite way too. No fly-by-night wooing here.

If you're looking for a similar love token for your honey, you're in luck. You can still find love spoons at craft festivals or you can buy a how-to book, get a hunk of wood and carve your own. If you're looking for something a little less time consuming, why not swipe some silverware from the school cafeteria and make matching spoon bracelets for you and your beau?
