Keep Calm and Carry On Necklace

The Keep Calm and Carry On necklace available HERE.




Have you ever seen the posters that say "Keep Calm and Carry On"? The one above is a reproduction from sfgirlybybay I just had to learn more about the history behind it, I love the saying and often say it to myself when I feel I just need to Keep Calm and Carry On! It inspired me to create my new hand stamped "Keep Calm and Carry On" necklace.

Here is a bit of history for you:

In the Spring of 1939, with war against Germany the British Government's Ministry of Information commissioned a series of propaganda posters to be distributed throughout the country at the onset of hostilities. It was feared that in the early months of the war Britain would be subjected to gas attacks, heavy bombing raids and even invasion. The posters were intended to offer the public reassurance in the dark days which lay ahead. If you would like to learn more about the history behind the signs you can visit here

So the next time you feel a bit stressed why not do what I do say to yourself, "Keep Calm and Carry On!!
