Hey ya'll, just a little warning to order sooner rather than later if you want any of our teeandtoast goodness; as there we be NO SHIPPING FROM THE 10th - 15th NOVEMBER!!! the time has come for us to recharge our batteries, ignore the emails for a day or two, read a good book & have some fun! (i hope that happens), as it is actually harder than you think - no doubt i'll still be thinking & trying to do things whilst on a short road trip to... CORK!
we are super excited; 1,2,3 ...woohoo :)
so up until then we'll be working harder to get your orders out before we leave & feel free to order to your hearts content while we are away, as on our return we'll work extra hard to get the back logged cleared :)
Check out these vintage Dracula & Frankenstein original print tshirts from 1974. We think these are the coolest thing to wear this October.
For a limited & spooky time these are only £12.
LAST CHANCE TO ORDER... Time is running out, but if you order by today, you should have them by the weekend. (UK / IRELAND orders only)
Happy halloween X
In a recent edition of GIZ MAGAZINE i came across this wonderful illustrator called Anneka Tran
Anneka is a freelance illustrator based in Staffordshire, England. She takes inspiration from anything, whether it be a smelly puddle in the street to an old man’s beard; her work is all about having fun and creating playful characters.
we ♥ her style.
Yesterday we got a lovely package in the post. A new batch of our wonderful tea cozies arrived freshly knitted by our delightful 82 year old knitting queen Mary. How amazing is she? Each time Mary sends us a batch, i am always surprised by a woolie rainbow of colour. so grab one while you can... stocks never last long.
visit our tea cozie page
we have been meaning to add this to teeandtoast for a very long time, but finally it is here. the new mums & babies page on our website has more products for very little bundles of joy. babygro's & long sleeved tee's printed with our most popular baby friendly designs are now available. GO CHECK THEM OUT!!!
our latest model for teeandtoast is 1 year old Malcolm from LA. he loves yogurt, as well as playing "go fetch" and running around in circles. he is the gorgeous son of my wonderful friends Lena & Rodd, who where over visiting during a whirlwind adventure from Korea to LA! thanks for letting Malcolm model for me, & thanks for coming to visit!
This was a little job i did at the start of the summer for my big brother Paul and his golf pal's, who where over for an Irish golf tournament. (i don't think they won - but they should have at least got a prize for the best golf polo's!)
Next year there will be 12 of them, so i'll have to put my thinking cap on for an even better design!
As I pottered around the house recently I noticed all the decorations are kinda all about me. gnomes, mushrooms, snoopy, pigs, fairies, vintage fisherprice toys, butterflies, teapots, toasters & lots of rainbow coloured objects. So I felt sorry for my other half and thought what things would he maybe like to fill the house with... surfing, mountains, rivers, maps... grrrrrr! it's all very outdoorsy stuff.
so I came up with this little doodle to add a bit of "my guy" to the house. he likes mountains & occasionally he climbs them. he especially likes climbing snowy mountains, I imagine (as i'll never be there to wittness such events!) that when he climbs to the top he puts his arms in the air and screams "Victory!!!!" just like his favourite character from Entourage, Johnny Drama.
So he hasn't seen it yet, i'll let you know how long it takes for him to notice his mountain that is now situated under a fairy... with a mushroom on one side & a hummingbird on the other!
We recently had a quick little photo shoot whilst on holiday in Donegal with some of my family. A big thanks to my silly billy models - my wonderful nieces Evie 10, Jasmin 6 & Hariot 2. Believe it or not, there was a bit a shyness to begin with but then they got into the smiley swing of things.
Keep an eye on the website as we will be uploading lots of lovely picture soon.
for some reason koalas was the 1st thought that came into my head when i heard the title of this fun illustration competition. i was going to have a big scary monster down below, but i thought little koalas hugging on for life was endearing enough. hee hee.
rand renfrow seems to be the brains behind the test everything zines. each month he gives a theme and calls for hand drawn submissions. so the theme this month is "Hugs Will Save Us" and you can only use the colours orange & black.
Fingers crossed our little koalas will make it through to the final 16 that get printed into a zine, but if not it was good to draw new friends :)

International T-Shirt Day
June 21 is the day on which T-shirt fans worldwide will celebrate International T-Shirt Day for the second year in a row. There is already a virtual party room available online at www.t-shirtday.com, where t-shirt enthusiasts can get information about this year’s festivities surrounding the event.
Celebrations officially start off with an “Open Runway” held in both Boston and Berlin, Germany. On this open-air fashion runway, T-shirt designers and T-shirt fans will have the opportunity to show their personal designs and looks centred around the world’s most universal clothing item.
In order to wet the appitite for the holiday, T-shirt blogger Adam Fletcher started a countdown to T-Shirt Day which consists of daily contests, riddles and promotions on T-shirt blogs and T-shirt shops around the world. See his schedule here.
I'm not sure if i've blogged about this restaurant before or not, but it's worth blogging about twice anyway! Made In Belfast is one of my favourite places in Belfast and a definite place to put onto your to-do list if you are a local or a visitor to the city. It is quirky, eclectic and decorated with a mish mash style that gives it a very unique personality. I love how they serve their chips in enamel beakers and the wine glasses hang from a chandelier, but most importantly it ticks these boxes, EXCELLENT food, FRIENDLY service & ENJOYABLE atmosphere.
I was there on saturday night with a hen party (i should probably apologise to the other customers if we where too loud, but we were all just having the craic!) and the bride-to-be Sam choose the best meal on the menu - i'm still dreaming about her delish salsa monkfish. so i am trying to persuade the boyf to go out for dinner this week just so i can order my own. I think it might be a done deal as i also keep raving about their Bailey's cheesecake - and he's a sucker for cheesecake, heh hee hee :)
Anyway this weekend it is Made In Belfast's 1st birthday, so happy birthday guys and congratulations to Emma the owner, you have made something Belfast should be proud of.
MADE IN BELFAST
There was a knock on the door this morning, i thought it was going to be my hungover brother saying hello and looking for his t-shirt order. Instead it was the postman with a giant box. As it had been my boyfriend Paul's birthday yesterday - i just presumed it was for him, but NO there was my name. It was for MEEEE!
The senders of the parcel are my wonderful and dearest best buddies Amanda (panda) and Corey, originally from Kansas (Panda was my old room mate at University of Kansas... KUUUU! That's how we met!) but now these folks live in the fab city of Chicago.
Anyway the parcel arrived filled with belated xmas prezzies, postcards from their travels and bits and pieces to let me know that these guys are always thinking of us... aww so sweet, and really cheered me up as i am feeling a little bit blue today. The funny thing is - for those who read my twitter, yesterday i said : "i wish i was magically being whisked off to renegade craft fair in Brooklyn this weekend. http://www.renegadecraft.com/"
It must be magic as the parcel contained some Renegade goodies from last years Chicago's fair. A wonderful renegade t-shirt and this hilarious card :) Isn't that just a lil bit spooky?
THANK YOU PANDA & COREY! I love everything - and I was a good girl not to sneak-a-peak at Paul's prezzie!
