Keep Calm and Carry On


Hello Sunshines! I have always wondered about this specific phrase. Where did it come from, what does it mean. Who said it, what is it!

There are so very many versions of this phrase out there in blog land and so many variations to this iconic " WWII English Poster" that I have finally found just a lovely and beautiful video about it and the true story behind not one poster but three.

Tonight I have found a wonderful site here, telling about this story and am adding this interesting video, a piece of history, for your viewing pleasure.

It is truly wonderful in many ways. I am such a lover of books. Here is a link to Barter Books in the UK.

I hope you enjoy this little story and video as much as I have.  Hugs Kat =^.^=

  3. Hello Ellie! Spring has sprung along with allergies now! Wo Hoo BUT camera in hand I will be walking about town and taking more pictures for you! I have been a very busy Kat painting and moving and shaking, things change for a reason we all know! :) And sometimes we never find out why things are the way they are but a reason for everything! More news soon! Take care, hugs Kat =^.^=
