  39. This giveaway is fantastic! I, like most people, adore these signs and sayings! I actually would love the "Keep Calm and Teach On" sign because my mother is a teacher for second graders and lord knows she must be driven crazy every other day! It'd be a great christmas gift and I'm sure she would frame it and hang it on a wall near her desk in the classroom.

  42. It hard to choose, especially between "Keep Calm and Write On" and "Keep Calm and Ride On"...as I adore vintage typewriters AND bicycles, but I think I will have to go with "Ride On." ;)

    P.S. I'm a Lilac and Grey follower and I tweeted about this post.

  105. well, first i thought i would like the KEEP CALM AND SNAP ON print, as any photographer knows, there are many instants when this would be an essential tip..
    however, the KEEP CALM AND DRINK TEA seems to make most sense to me. while i enjoy other activites from the keep calm series, i think tea (boiled or iced) with a lemon wedge and a couple of ice cubes.. maybe a spoonful of honey.. would be exactly what i need.
    its just perfect.
