Not Even Owl T-Shirt - Another Kiwiana Shirt

I've just got back from three weeks in NZ which means I've heard all of the usual sayings including one of my niece's current favorite - 'not even owl'.   I must admit that I don't particularly like this saying when my hubby uses it on occasion (especially after spending time with fellow Kiwis), but out of a young girls mouth I thought it sounded really cute!

If you love the Kiwi saying - Not even owl - then I hope you'll enjoy this take on it -

I love the use of the owl picture instead of the word - it brings a smile to my face when I look at it.   I'm thinking that I'll probably be buying a basic kids t-shirt with this design on it for Christmas this year,…

T-Shirt of the Week - Pirate Sheep

As it'll be Talk Like a Pirate Day again on the 19th September I thought I'd better look for a t-shirt that related in some way to pirates for this week's t-shirt of the week and when I found this one, well ...... check it out -

I just couldn't resist a pirate sheep was just something I found funny, but even though I laughed I can actually strangely hear a sheep saying Baarrr! can't you?

If you want some more serious pirate t-shirts to wear while you talk like a pirate then be sure to check out the pirate t-shirt selection here - pirate shirts.   Personally I think it's a chance to grab out your pirate costume and give it an airing before Halloween strikes, make sure you have all of your accessories and that the costume still fits since last year etc.

However you're celebrating the 19th, make sure to have a great time.

T-Shirt of the Week - Keep Calm and Bazinga!

This week's t-shirt of the week is one that all fans of The Big Bang Theory will love, check it out -

I love this shirt as it incorporates two fun and popular things - the Keep Calm phenomenon that everyone seems to love and one of the funniest shows on television at the moment.

For those who need it explained - just watch the show!

T-Shirt of the Week - Scooby Doo

I love Scooby Doo, in fact I've yet to find someone who doesn't like this cartoon dog that's scared of his own shadow!    I think it's time to all band together and wear a Scooby t-shirt like this one which is this week's t-shirt of the week.

T-Shirt of the Week - LOL

This weeks t-shirt of the week is a LOL shirt.   Now I must admit that it really irritates me when people say lol, because lets face it lol means laugh out loud and so if they're saying lol they're not laughing out loud are they?

However, my daughter says it all the time (she's a tween) and so do her friends so somehow I ended up popping it on a ringer tee and I thought it looked pretty good -

I've actually started to really like the look of the shirt now because it does make me think of my daughter so maybe she'll see one under the Christmas tree this year!  

Do you know someone who uses the word lol a lot?   If so then they'll love this shirt.

House MD T-Shirt

It's so sad to know that there will be no more House to watch as I loved the show, but you know you can always get a shirt in celebration of the doctor with no concept of bed side manners.

I'm sure there are other House tees available, but this is the first one I've seen and it has probably his most well known saying on it -

Now tell me did you like to watch House MD? Although at times the storylines could go a little awry in general they were pretty good, but the one thing that was always on form was Hugh Laurie's character Dr House himself.

Apparently Hugh Laurie was starting to get problems with his leg after walking with a limp so often on set, hopefully the end of House has come in time to stop those problems from developing into something more permanent because there's no Dr House to fix it for him!

TV Test Pattern T-Shirt

I love the TV test pattern shirt, I actually can still remember the very first one I saw years ago - it was purple with the well known test pattern across it.   The person who was wearing it had been given it as a gift so he didn't know where I could get one.

A few years passed before a funny television show about a few geeks hit television sets around the world - I'm talking about The Big Bang Theory.   When the main character - Sheldon - was seen wearing a television test pattern shirt on an episode you could suddenly find them available again.

Unfortunately I was unable to find one that was in my size at the local mall, but fortunately there are lots of places to find the shirt online like the one above.

I'm not sure exactly what it is that is so appealing about the shirt, there's just something very retro about it.   Now if only I could find one that shows the girl that used to appear on British televisions as one of the test patterns, thanks to Google I've dis…

Introducing T-Shirt of the Week - Leave Only Footsteps

I've decided I should introduce a t-shirt of the week post, so every Monday if you want to check it out I'll have a new t-shirt of the week for you to enjoy.

This week's t-shirt of the week is called Leave Only Footsteps and is a very stylish way of sending an eco-friendly message to everyone who sees you wearing it -

I think the t-shirt is really cool - don't you?   Of course I have to say that because it's one of my designs, but I love the purple tinge I've added to the sand as I think it makes people do a double take and hopefully that'll spread the message a bit more.

New York T-Shirts

New York, New York, everyone loves (or should that be hearts?) NY don't they?   One thing is for sure they do love to wear a New York t-shirt or two and there's so many to choose from.   The classic I heart NY is so last century let's have a look at some other New York tees -

What do you think of this selection of NY t-shirts - do you see one that you like?   All four of these t-shirts are made by Zazzle which means they come with a 100% customer guarantee so you don't have to take my word that they are great quality - you've got nothing to lose by ordering one yourself.

I do like the NYC t-shirt on the top line, it's pretty cool whereas I could see my hubby wearing the apple t-shirt - I'd love to know which one is your favorite.

If none of them appeals to you then check out a bigger selection of New York t-shirts here.

Wear a Chocolate T-Shirt on July 7th!

July 7th is Chocolate Day so why not wear a chocolate inspired t-shirt?   It will certainly get worn a lot as there are a lot of different chocolate holidays to celebrate every year and who doesn't want to celebrate chocolate honestly?

I feel I should give a little warning before Chocolate Day gets here though and I just so happen to have found one in the form of a t-shirt that I'm sure you'll love .....

I should mention that I have this t-shirt and it really does get a lot of people talking to you and they all agree with the sentiment (well all bar one, but she was in a bad mood at the time!)

Let's see what other chocolate t-shirts we can find for you to help celebrate this delicious day (or to wear any time really)

Well as February rolls on so does Margarita Day which occurs every year on February 22nd.   Who doesn't love a margarita?   It appears that lots of people enjoy margaritas which is why there's lots of margarita merchandise available including, you've guessed it, t-shirts.

I hope you've enjoyed these fun margarita t-shirts, one advantage to wearing a shirt instead of drinking a margarita on National Margarita day is that a t-shirt doesn't leave you with a hangover!!!!

Sheldon Cooper T-Shirts

If you know the name Sheldon Cooper then you would've watched the hilarious television series - The Big Bang Theory.   I must admit this is one of my favorite shows and is guaranteed to brighten up my day when I watch it.

Sheldon wears a lot of cool t-shirts and now he features on quite a few like this C-Man one -

If you enjoy watching this show and want to buy one of the t-shirts that Sheldon wears then there are lots of sites available that offer you the chance to purchase one online, my favorite site is the aptly named Sheldon Cooper Shirts.

Let's face it any day is a Sheldon Cooper t-shirt day!

Gumdrop T-Shirts for Gumdrop Day

When it comes to cool holidays to celebrate I think something sweet and tasty like gumdrops is definitely one I want to mark in my calendar, I'm sure you'd agree.
It's great to have an excuse for eating gumdrops, but why not wear a t-shirt as well?   I really don't need much of an excuse to buy a new tee so it's a gumdrop one for me, but which one?   I do like the sentiment behind the first one featured, but then this next one is very simple and to the point -

Save Ferris T-Shirt

Do you have a Save Ferris t-shirt?

Buy This at

This t-shirt is an absolute classic as it's from the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off.   This 1986 movie has become a cult hit starring Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller who decides it's too nice a day to go to school so he plans a great day off.

I was thinking of this movie today because it's being parodied in a Super Bowl ad starring Matthew Broderick who decides to take a day off from his day job as an actor.   The ad made me laugh and reminded me what a great movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off was.

I definitely need to buy a Save Ferris shirt for my hubby's birthday next month as it's his favorite 80s movie - will you be buying a Save Ferris t-shirt?
