Keep Calm.........It's Friday!

I am sure many of you have seen the Keep Calm and Carry On posters.  The story of the poster, if you don't know, the poster was used for propaganda in Britain at the beginning of WWII.  It was used to keep morale up and hint at keeping life as normal as possible.  Copyright laws for the poster lasted for 50 years so now the poster is public domain.  Since the rediscovery of the poster back in 2000 there have been many reprints and many variations which are quite funny.  Below are some of my faves.

The original rediscovered in Barter Books

perfect for the DIY'er

not your average bagged lunch

Tea time!
