Have been coveting this for months...

Inspired by the "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster produced by the British government in 1939 during World War II with the intention of raising the morale of the British public under threat of invasion, I love this poster from the KeepCalmShop on Etsy:

I love the vintage typewriter, love the "stiff upper lip" British-inspired phrasing, love that it reminds me to dial it down and keep the words coming. I want to hang it above my desk.

I also love the the KeepCalmShop's Etsy store's bio: "During an economic drop we saw a decline in people remaining active in things they loved to do. Money should never be a boundary to the creative desires of the heart. So we wanted to send a message of encouragement to all, to 'Keep doing what you love'.... and then the love of doing it will follow."



  1. And yes again. I can't decide what color I want! I like the green but maroon would look good in my house.

  2. I love this post. Exactly what I needed to read.
