Vintage 365: Super fun Keep Calm and Get Your Craft On t-shirt

Day 61 of Vintage 365


Ok, while it's too soon to bust out the lawn chairs and picnic basket just yet, March's return means that (Mother Nature willing!) in a matter of weeks we'll soon be able to bop about outdoors without the need for a jacket - or even long sleeves. (Yay! I adore my cardigan collection, but sometimes - especially after a frightful Canadian winter - a gal just wants to feel the sun tickle her skin again!)

Though I veer towards short sleeved blouses in the warmer months, sometimes I encounter a t-shirt that's too fantastic to pass up. More often than not said tees feature a vintage image of some sort, and when that old school element comes via a creative take on one of the most iconic posters of WW2 (the classic - and once again much loved - "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster), I'm (so!) all over it.

Being a creative/DIY kind of of gal myself, this great, vibrantly red Keep Calm and Get Your Craft on t-shirt marries two of my loves: vintage and crafts together into one delightfully well prices t-shirt (it retails for just $12.00 from etsy seller The Bold Banana, and is available in ladies sizes small through XL).

Indeed, beyond the charming aesthetics of this fun top, I love the sensible message it carries. Sometimes, when life is bearing down on you, there is much to be said for taking the advice that comes from the motto Keep Calm and Get Your Craft On. A little creative therapy can do wonders for the soul, and I think this snazzy t-shirt could definitely go along way in that direction, too! :)

  1. What a cool shirt. Very appropriate since March is National Craft Month in the US.

    Hope things are going well for you. Best Wishes,
