A couple a weeks ago was held the 2013 Miss New Westminster Ambassador Pageant in New Westminster. I was asked to make 5 spoons for last year's Miss New West and her 4 ambassadors. For a year, they all represented the City of New Westminster at a host of local events and traveled to parades and festivals throughout BC and the Pacific Northwest.
They called me Loving Spoonful... but they are not the first ones!
Meet my friend Louise from The Printed Peanut.
We shared a table at the February Blim market and had a blast.

A French girl I met a few weeks ago asked me if I had a grapefruit spoon for her boyfriend, because this is what their love story started with... They spent the first night together, and as she was getting ready to leave the next morning, he tried to make her stay for breakfast by showing her his grapefruit spoon and how to eat one with it. She stayed for breakfast that morning, and 3 years later, she lives in Vancouver and he is coming to visit her from France in a few days!
Special Valentine issue. So sweet!

The Anthology is a celebration of all things beautiful — fashion, design, travel, and the arts —

As I found out yesterday, she also wrote the featuring on The Loving Spoon on Vitamin Daily about a year ago.
Thank you for your beautiful post Kelsey!
Oh my. It's getting better and better!

Moulin à parole is a french expression used to describe someone who talks a lot (literally word mill).This ladle went to a girl in France who's name is Carole, and she was called Moulin à Carole by her family because she talked a lot when she was little!The alphabet in the bottom reminds of the alphabet noodles in the soup from when we were kids!
We shared a table with Sean Karemaker at the December Blim market.
He's a very talented artist, he draws, paints, makes sculptures, comics books etc... check out his blog here!I was going to rewrite this story but it's perfect as it is:
"I moved to Vancouver two years ago. The only person I knew at that time was Ideh. She helped me and my sister a lot with everything. Now both of us love her like she is our sister. We thought by giving her the spoon and the knife she'll have something special from us for forever. We are best friends now. I always see Ideh as an angel."
What a beautiful little story :) Thank you for sharing it Armineh!

My friend Kate was looking for a present for her sister who is going to live in Australia for one year. She needed something personal and small, that she could easily fit in her suitcase and travel with. They met at Vancouver's airport yesterday, in between her flights, as she had a lay-over here on her way to Australia. This spoon is to wish her luck during her year of adventures!
We have news!The Loving Spoon and Mellifera bees created a holiday package including one customized spoon, one 4oz vanilla-infused local honey, and one package of organic English Breakfast tea.You can buy it here!
