Keep Calm and Carry On

I have been seeing these posters pop up on a lot of design blogs and I have found them to be really adorable. But I did not know the back story behind these inspiring messages. Apparently, during WWII when the UK was being bombed daily the government posted these all over the country in an effort to lift spirits. I love the sentiment! And I learned about this on Rachel Ashwell’s new blog! Yes, the creator of Shabby Chic is now blogging! Check her out here.

Dream Bed

How can you not love the idea of crawling into this bed at the end of a long day? Or imagine spending an entire rainy day reading in bed! Rachel Ashwell has been creating fantastic lines for years and if I could decorate my entire house Shabby Chic, I think I would!
