The Story:

Sugar and Spice "... and everything nice" in this happy moment of courtship. The young lovers are having an interlude of teasing and flirting on a lovely spring day. Spice has picked a small flower for Sugar. In a moment he may decide to write their initials on the honeysuckle vine. It, like the coin with the vine on it, is symbolic of their two lives woven together, yet remaining independent of each other. On the base all of the acorns are couples. There is a buckeye for good luck and an old chestnut, symbolic of their love which will be warm and long lasting.
