Poetry of Merrit Malloy

             My most favorite poet is Merrit Malloy who published 21 books between 1975 and 1985. She is tagged as "the one who hits home the most". I discovered Merrit Malloy's poems back in the 90's and enjoyed her work so much that I collected all of her books, which at the time were pretty hard to find and costly for second hand.
        Since she is a favorite of mine I just had to create some of her work into vinyl wall quotes. I currently have only two but am working on some more designs to make the collection bigger. 
        The one featured today is OLD PHOTOGRAPHS and can be purchased in our eCrater store, Walls That Talk.
          




















       I have to mention the big surprise! One day while checking our orders I noticed the OLD PHOTOGRAPHS quote had been purchased and when I was checking out the buyers information I was totally surprised to see the buyer's name of Merrit Malloy. I thought this can't really be “the” Merrit Malloy! As it turned out it was and she has requested to see more of her work designed for vinyl wall application. She said everyone loves them! I better get busy and get to creating! Stay tuned for more to come.

  1. OMG! How cool is that, having the quoted one actually buy their own quote from you!? Congratulations! What a thrill for you!

  2. THANK YOU so much for this ! I absolutely love Merritt Malloy's work. She meant so much to me as a young girl. I have looked for her books many times, and have even wondered if she is still with us. Thanks again ~ it warmed my heart to read even a couple of her old poems; brings back so many memories. Love, Ronni
