In honour of my having reached
100+followers I thought I would like to give away
a few Welsh Goodies
The person who is my 100th follower is having a seperate parcel of Welsh goodies
The picture above is a Welsh Lovespoon
The custom of giving lovespoons as tokens of affection was widespread from the 17th century
The spoons, no matter how elaborate are carved from one piece of wood.
The different symbols on the spoon have different meanings.
Nowadays they are given as a token
of gratitude or respect
Along withe the lovespoon there are
A couple of Welsh tea towels
a Welsh oven glove
and a few other bits and bobs
On the evening of June 1st
(birthday of one of my grandsons!)
I will put all the names of my followers,
who write and say they would like this gift,
in a container and get someone to take one out.
Thank you all
for deciding to follow me
for all of your helpful and kind comments.
