Keep Calm and Carry On
The Budget Babe published this cool post last week and it's too good not to share. She blogs about Target's capsule collection around the mantra "Keep Calm and Carry On". According to Wikipedia, the popular phrase was originally a propaganda poster produced by the British government in 1939 during the beginning of World War II, but it was never used. Then in 2000, the phrase was rediscovered and subsequently re-issued by various companies and used as a decorative theme for a range of home products. Now, Target has jumped on the same bandwagon with a series of affordable home decor items that feature the phrase, including pillows, a tray and wall art. I have seen the wall art in stores, but not the pillow or the serving tray (which actually has a cute twist on the phrase with "Keep Calm and Snack On").
