Valentine's Day Approaches

Bookmark and ShareValentine's Day draws ever nearer and it's time to think about a lovely gift for your sweetie!!  Don't settle for the same old flowers and chocolates that you fall back on every year!!  Do something REALLY romantic and imaginative and commission one of my custom, hand-made lovespoons!!   Even if your budget only extends to something simple, it WILL be heart-felt, beautiful and romantic.  Beat THAT with your wilty roses and over-prices candies!!

If you think I'm full of stuff and nonsense, then just have an eye-ball at this lovely little Celtic style knots and hearts spoon carved from recycled old-growth fir.  Here's a wood that doesn't get the credit it is due from carvers (mainly because it isn't easy to get or to carve) but is STUNNINGLY elegant!!  This piece was recycled from an old 2X4 that I salvaged when I replaced the roof on my little 1914 built shack.  The grain is straight as an arrow and tight as a ducks back end; it really is remarkable wood!

This spoon is warm and lovely and although pretty basic and simple, it is tres romantic!  

I've got a good supply of ready made spoons on hand and there is still time (though limited) to commission a custom design.

Even if you can't be Welsh this Valentine's Day, you can still be romantic and inspired!
