Keep Calm and Carry On.


I’m a sucker for cheesy motivational slogans. Also, I’m a sucker for World War II/Nazi history and the whole era surrounding it. Finally, two of my loves go hand-in-hand.

The poster was initially produced in 1939 during the beginning of World War II, and was intended as a "last case scenario" to be used only should the Nazis succeed in invading Great Britain, in order to stiffen resolve. Two-and-a-half million copies were printed, although the poster was distributed only in limited numbers.[1] The designer of the poster is not known. (Wikipedia)


So, hey everyone, let’s pretend as if the Nazis might invade our lives. And remember – just keep calm and carry on. Tim Gunn approves this message.

If Tim Gunn says it, then it's so. I have been inspired by Keep Calm and Carry On posters since I first saw on in Vanity Fair a couple months ago. I went looking around online and found http://keepcalmandcarryonusa.com .
They had posters in a variety of colors (still love the red) and plenty of other products too. I might visit again when I'm Christmas shopping this year. Glad to find a kindred spirit.
