A Recipe for Friendship
A tablespoon of loyalty
A drop of conversation
A drizzling of good advice
And a dash of inspiration.
A teaspoon of adventure
A pinch of hopes and fears
An ounce or two of thoughtfulness
And a hint of mopped up tears.
A grain or two of listening
A sprinkling of bopping
A slice of raucous laughter
And a smattering of shopping.
A chunk or two of chocolate
A splash or two of wine
A soupcon of supportiveness
And dollop of good times.
Stir it well then bake and serve
As often as you wish;
No ‘Use By’ date applies you see
To the perfect friendship dish.

The poem is created by printing the black background onto the highest quality GF Smith A4 card (330gsm) using Dura-Bright waterproof ink. There is no mount around the print.
Each print is lovingly produced to order. Unframed prints have a 3mm white border if chalkboard style and arrive flat, wrapped in cellophane, in a super stiff envelope.
For an extra fee we can frame the print for you. The lightweight wooden frame we use is slim and matt black. It has a hook for wall hanging. The front is perspex.
Each frame is hand finished in the UK by Fine Art Trade Guild commended framers. The product is dispatched in a purpose-made picture box.
The print is H30 x W21cm (A4) and when framed is H32.5 x W23.5 x D1.2 cm.
