still keeping calm


Just a few days ago I mentioned where to find the clever rubber stamps invoking the popular British war rally poster. For some time I've been seeing versions of this poster printed in many colors, or printed with a change in wording like "stay calm and eat cupcakes," and of course used on lots of items besides the posters.

Now these collectible charms have arrived in the mail from Stef and Mark, the husband and wife team at Home Studio. The mini poster words and sheet music are hand applied to the front of Scrabble tiles, just two of their wide variety of images. And they are having a Memorial Day special through Monday.

One more variation on the theme comes from Teresa Sheeley's Etsy shop, where she offers her take on delightful motifs like crowns and chandeliers and birds and tea cups. She makes her tea towels by printing her original designs, like this one with a much larger crown over the popular saying.

On Memorial Day, when we pause to pay homage to so many Americans who died in war to preserve our beliefs, this saying still can remind us a little of what we owe.

My credit card thanks you. I just had to scurry out & buy both of the stamps.
Love them!
