Keep Calm and Carry On

It was an important icon during WW2 in England,
 and it remains as iconic today.

It helped keep a hungry, frightened and tired nation's eyes focused;

reminding them they were defending freedom.

Oh, but what fun we're having with it now!

I decided to put together a bunch of the alternative
 "Keep Calms" for our amusement.

There's two that are just perfect for me:

(Keep Calm, stand on one leg and carry on
listening to Jethro Tull - Ian Andersen, the flutist for the rock band
stood on one leg often whilst playing his flute.)

Here's two for my tea society sisters & fellow bloggers:

Here's the perfect one for my MIL:

There's the perfect one for my husband:

And one for my brother-in-law Pat:

And one for my older sister :

Here's the perfect one for my niece Delaney:

Here is one (at this crazy busy time of her life) for my little sis:

And what she should wear
 when doing what REALLY makes her keep calm:

There's one for my sister-in-law Jenn:

And two perfect ones for my niece Darien:

Here's an awesome one for all my teaching friends, such as  Dina:

And a good one for my nephew Tony:

Here's a good one for my niece Reagan:

For my elder daughter:

Here's a good one for my brother-in-law Tony:

There one for my younger daughter:

And my younger brother:

Here's a perfect one for my son-in-law and older brother too:

And here's one for all you crazy GOOFY 50 Shades fans:

I hope to have made you smile just a little bit!

Lastly, if I was able, I'd make one that says:

As always, thank you for your  visit!

Stay warm, safe and dry!

  17. Dear Michele,
    My husband is a big, big fan of Ian Anderson. That mug is hysterical. He would get such a kick out of it. Fun post.
    Churchill inspired his nation.
    Have a happy day, Ruthie
