Keep Calm and Carry on decor...


Hi Everyone,
I think everyone has seen these 'Keep calm' posters by now, Keep calm and Bake, Keep calm and eat a cupcake........ Well I found this original 'Keep Calm and Carry On' canvas in a local shop! I love it. I thought I would share where it now lives. In my living room above the fireplace. I have to admit in the time I have lived in this house I have never had a picture above the fireplace, I didn't really miss one not been there, I thought about it, but nothing ever said it needed to live there....but this new picture does,I think it looks perfectly at home,what do you think?
Can you see the other picture frame? This is a project I have had in mind for a while. As you know I love cakes, anything cake related, well I found some beautiful cake wrapping paper it is yellow with cakes on it, with sparkle glitter on the frosting, It is hard to see in the photos but it really sparkles in the light. I decided to frame the paper..... very simple and affective. I am quite happy with my little decorating project...... lol
My house is quite cottage in design, but I wanted to add a little retro colour into the mix, to brighten things up a bit... I am also working on some colourful cushions for the chair in this room, I will share those in another post. Hope you enjoyed the mini tour of my living room...
See you again soon

What a great canvas. Never seen something like that, the Keep calm and eat a cupcake sounds also great to me. maybe I keep that in mind and design a cross stitch pattern for that :-)
The frame with the cake wrapping paper is very original, love that idea but never seen such wrapping paper here either.
The Flower Pot Pendant is again a beauty, you're very talented !
BTW I love your new header and your name writing in that brown color looks just as chocolat words ... yummie !

I love your canvas. These posters from the war years still seem relevant today and what a great addition to your living room.

Enjoy your weekend.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It is very nice to meet you. I have the "Keep calm and carry on" sign on my sidebar. I think I like to read the same kind of books as you. I am going to come back and read your reviews.
Enjoy the weekend>
