Keep Calm and Eat On

This week I broke our final cereal bowl from our set of everyday dishes that we registered for for our wedding. [It has been almost 10 years! :-D ♥] We still have nine mugs, nine small plates, nine pasta bowls, (why nine? I'm sure we registered for twelve...) three dinner plates (oh, how they dwindle) ...but that was the last bowl. *sniff, sniff* Pier 1's Palermo pattern:

I've been looking for replacements that I *love* for two years. Eh. So I'm going to decorate my own to hold us over!

Enter my latest historical pop culture obsession - the 1939 British Keep Calm and Carry On poster:

I decided to use my Silhouette SD to make a template of this for me etch "Keep Calm and Eat On" ;-) onto a glass bowl!
Ta da! I am pretty pleased, although getting the template to work correctly with the rounded surface of the bowl was SO HARD! I have three more bowls...but this was so labor intensive that one was enough for today. :-P


  1. OK... same thing happened to us with the bowls! I searched and searched for another set that I loved. Every time I found one, I would face the fact that with four kids they would continue breaking all of them. So, finally, I bought several four packs of plastic bowls from Target. They were $1.99 a pack! I am NOT kidding. We LOVE these bowls. They all stack compactly. They are microwave safe and dishwasher safe. And they are completely unbreakable! We even bought matching cups. My husband loves them so much that we keep saying we wish they made plates!

  2. Thanks, Heather!
    Emily - CHEAP, MICROWAVE-SAFE *PLASTIC* BOWLS?!?! I have been looking FOREVER! (My kids eat oatmeal every.single.morning = microwave-safe is a must!) Does Target still have them?

  3. That is so cute! What a great idea!
