I love you Mum!
Lizzie wrote this poem for and about her own lovely mum Susan (Mummy Mole!)
And whilst we might all be fiercely competitive about the title of 'best mum in the world' going to our own mums, we think this rhyme has a universal appeal!
Even grown-up sons and daughters look to their mums for the answers and they in turn seem to hold the umbrellas, glue and lanterns we need to make us feel better!
This acrostic style poem was written to say thank you and I love you to mums everywhere. The first letter of each line is foiled in a metallic finish and spells out MUM I LOVE YOU, which we think is a lovely thing to say!
The perfect gift for Mother's Day, a special birthday, or just because mums are amazing and we should remember to tell them more often!

Our frames are handmade in Brighton by a highly skilled framer specialising in hand-finishing. We've chosen a simple hand-painted white wooden frame to complement our poem prints.

My anchor when I'm drifting
Umbrella in the rain
Making things seem better, mending me again
Yes sometimes I falter
I guess that we all do, with
Love you'll patch and stitch me
Or stick me back with glue
Valleys might seem dark sometimes, but
Every day I know
You hold a lantern for me
Up new ways to go
