Oh No! It's Back To School!

Teacher Shirt
Geez... the first day of school comes earlier and earlier every year! When I was a kid we never went back to school until the beginning of September. The academic year ended the first week of June and began the day after Labor Day. I remember those Labor Day evenings when it was the tradition to scrub off the summer dirt. We had a full three months off for summer vacation, so by this time we were definitely ready to head back to the classroom (I'm sure my parents were ready too!).  I believe the difference in our schedule was that we never had a Fall or Spring break, but rather only two weeks off during the Christmas holidays. I liked it this, work, work, then play, play, play! I guess too it really needed to be this way since we didn't have air conditioning in the schools (nor at home) back then. It would have been unbearable attending class in the oppressive summer heat in St. Louis.  Now days the schools in our area are air conditioned and the first day of school is earlier and earlier each year. Most of the neighboring school districts have a start date some time during the first two weeks of August. So the good news is you still have time to get a fun custom tee from Zoey's Attic for your school aged kiddo's first day of class!

New Birth Announcement Poster Prints!

I love giving (and receiving, in case anyone wants to know!) personalized gifts. I especially love a personalized welcome for a newborn. Also, in my gift-giving experience, it seems the new parents love to receive such thoughtful keepsakes to commemorate this most wondrous life changing event. I have previously given my friends and family personalized baby bodysuits for an only child or festive sibling sets for families with multiples.  One of my favorite gifts to send is the custom birth announcement throw pillow. It really is fun to select a design and colors that will coordinate with the new arrivals' nursery, making it such a very personal gift for a family member or a close friend. Zoey's Attic also offers a birth announcement canvas which can be made in a variety of sizes. And now they even have these amazing birth announcement designs with all the birth stats on a photo print ready for framing. You can choose sizes such as a mini 5 x 7 inch print or even a larger poster size 16 x 20 inch print.  And if needed, Zoey's Attic can make a special order custom size print for you.  You can also choose the design and custom color (over 60 color variations) the canvas or photo print poster to complement the room theme. The paper used for printing is Vibrance Photo Matte with excellent photographic print quality. It also has a bright white surface with a luxurious flat matte to showcase the beauty in the artwork. These unique and very special birth print posters are the perfect gift sure to be cherished for a lifetime.

Celebrate With A Bang!

4th of July T-shirts from Zoey's Attic

So last year I confessed that I don 't like the Fourth of July holiday. Now, please don't get me wrong... I love celebrating my awesome country and I love most of the festivities of the day, but I just don't like the fireworks.! So there, I said it..I'm afraid of fireworks! I am excited, though, that Independence Day falls on a Friday this year, and therefore we have an extended three day weekend! Friday will be all about family with generations of loved ones gathering for the annual summer barbeque. Saturday, my immediate family will cheer on the St. Louis Cardinals from The Budweiser Brew House Deck at the new Ballpark Village.  The Brew House Rooftop is an awesome venue for watching the baseball game and I'm so excited to share this special day with my family! I'm excited too for the stadium hot dogs and nachos, a MUST for any Cardinal home game! Sunday will definitely be a day for rest and recuperation! So if you happen to be making a special announcement this holiday weekend or just need a special tee for all the 4th of July activities, Zoey's Attic has got you covered!

First Father's Day

I fondly remember my husband's First Father's Day. We spent the day at one of his favorite places to visit, the Missouri Botanical Garden. It was a delightful June day in St. Louis, not as oppressively warm as it usually is on Father's Day. While touring the flowering gardens, an elderly woman also enjoying the magnificent colors and fragrant scents of Shaw's Garden approached my husband and wished him a happy Father's Day. Then she also told him his daughter was more beautiful than any of the flowers in the garden. My husband, on this his very First Father's Day, beamed with pride! I was so thankful for the encounter with this woman (unknown to us) for adding to the joy of his special day. Her kind words have held a cherished place in our hearts ever since that very 1st Father's Day. So if you ever have an opportunity to make someone feel extra special...just do it! You'll never know the impact your kindness will have on someone, even a total stranger. And if you are still looking for that special gift for Dad or Grandpa, Zoey's Attic can help.
