A Poem by Joy Sullivan 

“Cutting to the core of human experience, Joy writes poems to sink your teeth into.”

This gift-ready keepsake poem, by Portland based poet Joy Sullivan, reminds us that life is juicy, bright, and often bittersweet. Joy writes poetry for people who long to be moved.

Summer says,
“I was introduced to Joy on social media by a longtime friend and artist, Amy Elkins. Amy asked me to send her some encouraging words to help her settle into her new life in Portland, Oregon during a shocking heat wave. I was so surprised by her poetry - I felt transported, renewed, and sometimes gutted. 
After gifting her poems to my people one holiday season, and seeing how her words moved my friends and loved ones, I knew we had to induce you, too!"

We’ve curated these poems and encased them in a floating table-top frame with an antiqued bronze finish for you to treasure yourself or to gift. Choose from: Howl, Want, Burn, Sister, Love song, Wood frog, Of wildflowers, Praise the woman, or Tips for traveling west. 

Poems are printed on 8 x 10" cardstock
Frames measure approx 9.5 x 11.5"

I recently discovered this amazing website and ordered necklaces for my daughters. I received them in 2 days! Not only did they arrive quickly, they were carefully packed and beautifully wrapped. I wanted to peek so bad but resisted because I wouldn’t be able to duplicate the wrapping. This website empowers, features and recognizes women artists and honors their work.
They cared so much they asked for feedback and responded when I provided it. This will definitely be one of my go to sites for gift giving.

We all need that special thing for our ourselves/lover/sister/friend.

The sweet thing is that the research is done on where to intentionally drop our cash! I simply love the products, stories behind who creates the products and the fact that I can depend on the best curated collections.

This all makes Pennylark Finery my go-to place - and why I’m getting ready to put order number four out the door. Thank you, PennyLark Finery!
