Who can keep calm at a time like this!!!

The first time this sign was pointed out to me, was by the lovely Victoria! How perfect for her and her fabulous husband. Two of my favorite brits.



This is a reproduction of the original Keep Calm and Carry On poster produced by the Ministry of Information 1939.

Keep Calm and Carry On was a motivational poster produced by the British government in 1939 during the beginning of World War II, but never used. It was rediscovered in 2000, and now graces the wall of such places as diverse as the prime minister's strategy unit at 10 Downing Street, the Lord Chamberlain's office at Buckingham Palace and the United States embassy in Belgium. um, not to mention Victorias.

If your dying for a poster, or even a t-shirt, go to this fun site "Keep Calm and carry on", and get one for yourself.

So, now that it has resurfaced, and gained a huge fan club, why not play upon the idea? Well, Jennys Bakeshop, on etsy, has done just that. Paying tribute to an iconic image, they designed their own take on it with a bit more incentive than simply "carry on" to "keep calm", there must also be a cupcake involved!
