Luck of the Limerick Contest

February 13, 2013

We can’t be modest when it comes to our emails. Let’s face it, they’re awesome.

This month we want to give you the chance to get in on all the fun of creating one of our emails by helping us write a Limerick about one of our products. Here’s the contest: Write a Limerick for one (or all) of these four products. If we pick your poem, you’ll be featured in an upcoming email and win the item that inspired you!

Trinity Wooden Cuff Bracelet This eye-catching cuff cuts against the grain of traditional jewelry design–instead of metal or plastic, it’s crafted from natural hardwoods.

Warm or Cool Face Mugs Bring some color to those cheeks with this customer favorite!

Butterflies Pop Out Clock Time flies when you’re watching it pass on this dreamlike clock.

Spiky Owl Bird Feeder Day or night, this charming feeder is bound to be a hit–and a hoot–with backyard birds.

The Rules

  • Your poem must be a Limerick. Need some help writing a Limerick?

    Cuff Bracelet

    I wind myself around your arm,

    No reason for alarm

    Place me on your wrist

    you only need a gentle twist

    I told you I’d do no harm!

    Buy me a clock black and white,
    that looks of the bite of a butterfly’s flight
    when the day is a bore
    I’ll just look at them soar
    and imagine where they shall alight

    Cherry, Walnut, African Rosewood
    Entwined on on your wrist, you’re sure to look good
    Pair with an A-Line skirt
    Or a sassy T-Shirt
    Then go paint the town like you should!
