Spring and Mother’s day are here!

March 28, 2013 Leave a comment

Mother’s Day will be here before you can say, “Hi, Mom.” Are you ready for it? You can bet your Mom is anticipating it already with barely subdued excitement.  So what will you be giving her this year? A flower arrangement? A pretty, fragrant gift, yes. But after a few days, their loveliness will fade, and they will be tossed into the trash.  What about giving your Mom her favorite candy? It would be yummy for the tummy, all right, but then it would be on Mom’s hips for a lifetime. Not a very nice picture in your mind, is it?

With the selection of tees that we have on our site, you are certain to find one that will make Mom smile, if not laugh out loud, and without the added calories. Whatever reaction you would like to evoke from your dear Mother, just browse our “Family Shirts” page and see the variety of treats available here for Mom on her special day.

If she would like flowers, we have a lovely “Special Mother” tee that’s guaranteed to last a lot longer than a whole flower bed. If she’s got a good sense of humor, our “Mother is Right” tee might be the right shirt for her. (You do know she’s always right, don’t you?) Also, there’s an adorable “Mother’s Love” tee with kittens on it, if she’s into the cute, fluffy little darlings. And for the Mom who’s an angel, we have a (wait for it) “Mothers are Angels” tee.

Looking for something special for your Grandma? Well, we have those, too. A lovely “heart of the Family” one as well as a fun “What Happens with Grandma” tee.

Whether you pick a funny tee or a serious one for your Mom or Grandma, if you have put enough thought into it, your gift on Mother’s Day is certain to be met with sincere “ooohs: and “ahhhs.” And it just might come with a bushel of pecks for you!

Irish, St. Patrick, Shamrock, Green, Leprechaun, and Beer?

March 3, 2013 Leave a comment

Have you ever wondered how all these things are related to each other? As we loaded up our St Patrick Day T-Shirts, I did a little research, and here it goes: St Patrick had an interesting early life. He was born as British-Roman and was kidnapped by Irish at age sixteen.  After escaping he became a priest and went back to Ireland to advance Christianity to Irish, who were polytheist back then.  Now the tricky part, he used a Shamrock to explain the Trinity concept.  I do not think he related beer and shamrock in his teachings, but fortunately for beer lovers, a shamrock represents the Irish taste today for dark or light beer, warm-blooded Irish women, and a jolly good time at the nearest pub. Green is known to first have shown in the uniforms of the soldiers in the 1798 rebellion on March 17th.  Since then this day is known and celebrated by the Irish as the St. Patrick day. It is a national Holiday in Ireland and that starts explaining the beer. Now, how about that Leprechaun?  Well, I learned that these fairy tale characters were already in Irish folk tales but the combination of Leprechaun and beer provide a nice opportunity to explain what happens when you take in more beer than enough!   At teesnthings.com, we love the St. Patrick day, Irish, and Beer themed t-shirts. if you are getting ready to hit the nearest pub with your best Irish or Irish-loving friends, we have the t-shirts for you. Here are a few new irish t-shirts at the store:
