Words, Words, Words

The design blogs are currently obsessed with this Keep Calm and Carry On print, and I concur. These simple words carry something serene and relaxing. Fliers donned this message and were posted throughout England during World War II. This homage to the encouraging, soothing statement is warm and welcome in this modern day.

I would love to wake up to this Wake Up and Smell the Coffee print. Second only to the comforting aroma of fresh coffee beans percolating in the kitchen.

As the only member of my whole family who lives outside of Washington, D.C. or Alexandria, VA, this Make Your Own Path print is comforting and reassuring. Hand letter-pressed by Doug Wilson on a vintage map from his own collection. Truly one-of-a-kind and unique.
My mom was right. Doug Wilson expresses the same sentiment with this hand-pressed print.

All of these and more can be found in the Keep Calm Gallery.
