Keep Calm and Carry On

I have an Etsy addiction, I’ll be the first to admit it, because I love things that are hard to find or one of a kind. My absolute favorite Etsy seller is Pressureless who personally silk screens the infamous poster, “Keep Calm and Carry On”.

It’s been in home magazines such as Domino (R.I.P.), House Beautiful, and countless shows on HGTV but have you heard its history?

During World War Two the British government pasted this quotation all over the city as war time propaganda to convince citizens to keep living their lives despite the upheaval.

Normally only shown in red Virginia based Pressureless offers these in an array of colors from basic red, to fun blue raspberry and even fancy gold. They match every d├ęcor and remind you to keep calm and carry on, despite how stressfully your life has become.

To purchase your own visit their Etsy page:

Note: I personally have purchased three, and every time the shipping is prompt and well packaged. There are many Etsy sellers who offer a similar product but this seller, I’ve found, has the best quality and price.
