Description

This plaque is an excerpted version of Desiderata by Max Ehrmann and is designed with a script font. There is also a handwriting version available as well.

A tattered copy of this poem was tacked to our refrigerator door growing up and I have probably read it a hundred times. Even as a child I thought it was filled with wisdom and positivity. Rules for living a good life for sure.

This personally designed tumbled marble plaque is 8" x 8" tumbled botticino and can be ordered with or without the iron easel shown above.

Text:

Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; listen to others, for everyone has their story. Do not compare yourself with others, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Exercise caution in your business affairs but do not be blind to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its shams, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

About my marble plaques:

My plaques are crafted from tumbled marble. As marble is a natural material, it is GUARANTEED to have color and texture variations and other inconsistencies. The stones are a lot like people. None is perfect or like another, but what makes it different makes it beautiful.

Although I coat my marble plaques with a thin layer of acrylic, they are intended primarily for indoor decorative purposes or in an outdoor covered area that is shielded from the elements. To clean just wipe with a damp cloth. Do not submerge in water. Tiles may be used as cold drink coasters but should not be exposed to heat or used as trivets or hot pads.

I have been creating and selling my tiles since 2002 in local stores, wineries and online. I have created literally thousands of my tumbled marble plaques for as many satisfied customers. I promise that my attention and service will always be personal and focused on your satisfaction.

FAQs

I can personalize any order for a small $5 fee. Full custom plaques are also available with your words and your direction on how you would like me to design it for you. If you order a custom plaque you will have an opportunity to review your design as many times as you like before it is finalized. The custom order process is started once payment is received.
My plaques come in 4", 6" and 8" square. If you would like an 8" tile please message me and I can provide a listing. I can do tiles as large as 12"x 12" if available. Please message me for details and availability.
Although the marble is coated with a thin layer of acrylic to protect the surface, these tiles should not be used as hotplates or trivets. If displayed outdoors they should be kept in an area shielded from the elements. To clean just use a damp rag to wipe the surface.
While I don't provide gift wrapping per se, each tile is carefully packaged in tissue with a logo sticker affixed and shipped in craft paper shreds acceptable for gift giving. I've received a lot of positive feedback about my regular packaging so I'm confident your gift recipient will be pleased as well.
Wholesale orders are accepted as well as orders for fundraisers. Please message me with your request.
