Sample poem:

Happy 60th Birthday Mum

In Bournemouth town there lives a mother
Superior to any other.
Sixty years of age is she,
Though looking more like twenty-three,
The secret to her youthful glow
Is golf and gym and veg, you know.
Yes, Beryl has that mystic art
Of always looking very smart.
Her hair: perfection on a head
As soon as she gets out of bed;
The home immaculately neat
(As long as Colin wipes his feet.)
Now, anyone who crosses Beryl
Is truly in a state of peril,
For Mrs N has such a glare
You really wish you were not there!
In fact, you’d very likely say
That lady’s like a Milky Way:
A firm and solid outer part
With soft marshmallow at the heart.
She’s the lynchpin, axis, core,
The lighthouse guiding you to shore,
The rock that’s there whatever weather,
And keeps the family together.
So Happy Birthday Mrs N
Beloved Mother, Wife and Friend.

I wanted one of my husbands poems to be transferred onto a keepsake for his birthday and this was absolutely perfect. Despite the poem being quite lengthy Joanna responded promptly to my queries and gave me options to consider. The finished product is absolutely fabulous and is even better then I could have imagined. Thank you so much! Ps For anyone considering ordering I’m certain you won’t be disappointed. 😃

These drinks coasters are the perfect complement for my drinks trolley destined for the new gin themed summerhouse. Quirky and different they would make a great gift so will no doubt come back for more! Bespokeverse Has some amazing prints so worth also checking out the other items.
