Handmade Tshirts and Intellegent Art YOU CAN WEAR

Too Often when I step into a retail store and I am looking for a gift for a child or even an adult and I notice there are T-shirts for all ages with such senseless garb printed on them. I certainly cannot see myself at 35 walking around wearing a mass produced T shirt with a riduculous saying like "it is all about me".. No mall sayings across my chest, please! Like a tshirt with the word JUICY across my chest for a mere $100.00!
It is not really who I am, I am not JUICY nor do I aspire to be and I am beyond the days of wearing a billboard across my chest saying, " I love getting ripped off at the mall!".

I have been really eyeballing some T-shirts for gifts, mainly for my loved ones... I just hit another wonderful Etsy shop! This one had to be aired out! I can sew almost anything I really want, but, tshirts to me are sort of a waiste. I like to buy them, especially with a design on them. I discovered another wonderful shop,Wait, I mean to say SHOPS.. This is another Etsy shop that offers products who say who I am, down to earth, organic and real! They also send the message that I would like to send with a little gift to the ones I love.  Handmade, with love and care.. I love that!
I found that these thoughtful artisans stock includes a little bit of something for everyone, right down to the beloved family dog!There is something for everyone at WrenWillow at Etsy where there is a cuter lighter side for of the life of the T Shirt! They have really intelligent designs in their other shop, T shirts, Pins and other thoughtful gifts in their other shop, ArtHistory101, where I was able to find an inexpensive thoughtful gift for a wonderful person in my life! FOR 3.00!
Not only did I get a small trinket for a loved one! I was given a little bit of an edumication! I mean an art history education! That EDUMICATION THING WAS A JOKE! ( i know I am the notorious one for the typos).. So, even if you are just stopping by for an art history lesson, or in the market for a wonderfully designed T-shirt, this is a place I deem worth your time, and must "stop by"!!

ArtHistory101's shop


They have wonderful work and it is shop where you can buy something for yourself, your friends, and even the dog, and it will run you anywhere from 3 to 30 dollars!


Great on the wallet and thoughtfully designed items! Hand dyed and screen printed t's! Let me stop raving, you have brains and eyes, go shopping and see this for yourself!  Keep up the good work guys!

Cannot leave you with that thought! Buzz Planet!

I will probably contemplate erasing that last post in about a week.. But, it is me this week!


 Soap so pretty and affordable that it is perfect to use, collect, and gift!

I have to talk about something I blogged about recently. BuzzPlanet!

I have to rave about this shop a little more. I decided to pick this sellers brain and talk about her creams and soap and I told her about my skin and issues with it.

I have to tell you, the woman who owns this shop is an amazing woman. For a few reasons. A mother of five boys, which to me is outrageous! You know this is a good woman to raise a bunch of boys! And a mother who with all that going on, has the time to make things, God Bless her!

She does not just make the soap and creams, she knows what every oil, mineral, and organic ingredient is used for! I am so amazed with her knowledge! I have recommend if you are a person who uses soap when you shower, this is the person to go to and buy it from. She is currently concocting my own blend for me which will cure in about 2 weeks, and I am dying to give you all the scoop on my purchase,  which I can guess is going to better than the wonderful experience I had just speaking to her.

I am so impressed with the wealth of knowledge she offered me about my own skin and what I should and should not use on it! It is important to me that my skin is moisturized and it gave me a great amount of relief and confidence that she is making soap and creams and really knows why she uses the ingredients. And it is not just because they smell pretty!

You Go GIRL!
