Introducing Lazy One®

Lazy One® is a brand from Utah, USA. They specialise in lounge and sleepwear for the whole family. These funny, animal themed designs come in pyjamas, nightshirts, slippers, socks, boxer shorts and even giftware. 

Tam's Treasures is proud and happy to bring you this new line of apparel and giftware from a company that takes pride in it's products as well as wanting to be a "green" company.

This is from their own website: 

About Us

All right folks, here’s the scoop on Lazy One. The following is the truth, the whole truth and nuttin’ butt the truth: Lazy One is nestled within the Rocky Mountains of Northern Utah and began with a man, his wife, and their dream to provide the world with what was sorely needed--comical boxer shorts. Armed with the original philosophy that “humor is funny,” they began “moosing around” with ideas, ultimately producing not only “cheeky” boxers, but also pj tees, sleepwear and more, all featuring original--and strangely endearing--designs of wacky wildlife.
As business boomed, it soon became apparent that two people and a 600-square foot storage shed were no longer sufficient, and the company exploded into a spacious warehouse and a team of talented employees. Joining forces with resorts and other recreational hot spots, Lazy One products quickly became popular (and functional!) souvenirs for tourists, clients and other “wild things.” As a result, the Lazy One product line continues to expand, meeting the needs of consumers who appreciate both the fashion and the funny. As a herd of nature lovers, Lazy One continually strives to “go green” as they move toward becoming a plastic-free company. Hangers made from recycled paper and an emphasis on recycling are all top priorities of Lazy One. In a nutshell, Lazy One is all about keeping folks feeling warm and fuzzy, from super comfy PJ’s to cozy slipper socks-- all served with a hearty dose of hilarity.
At Lazy One, we believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of laughter. And since the mind craves humor like the body craves comfort, we take great pride in combining both comedy and coziness in every product! So go ahead—sleep, sprawl, and snicker with Lazy One.

For the Birds!

Bird Tree T-shirt
I love this time of year. Not just because daylight is longer but I love the mornings. I love laying in bed listening to birds happily tweeting their morning songs.

Birds are a beautiful reminder that warmer, sunnier weather is just around the corner. After a long cold and wet winter there's nothing nicer than waking up to sunshine and beautiful tweeting!

The Mountain® have created some lovely bird t-shirts featuring the artwork of today's most popular wildlife artists.  The vivid colours and realistic images are a perfect combination with the top quality t-shirts by The Mountain®

With warm weather and Father's Day just around the corner why not pick yourself up a bird t-shirt today?

April Showers

April showers bring May flowers. While it's raining, it's dark and gloomy so bright, colourful pop art by Dean Russo is just what you'll need until those May flowers start blooming!

He has a fondness for Pit bulls and a lot of his designs are inspired by real rescue dogs. So if you're looking for a Staffordshire Bull Terrier T-shirt (Staffy Tee) you'll be spoilt for choice.  Don't worry though, you'll also find pugs, retrievers and other dog breed t-shirts.

You'll also find cats and other zoo animals in the Dean Russo Collection.  T-shirts are available in adult and kids sizes.

2016 Year of the Monkey!

2016 Year of the Monkey

February 8, 2016 through the 27th of January 2017 according to Chinese calendar is year of the monkey.  There are 12 recurring animals from the Chinese zodiac.  Monkeys are considered clever, cheerful and energetic.  People born under the sign are considered wise, intelligent and confident.

People born in the year of the monkey are called Monkeys in China. Coincidentally, I (Tam) was born in the year of the monkey and my sister-in-law and I have long running nick names for each other Monkey Woman & Monkey Girl. Long story and didn't actually come from the realization I was born in the year of the monkey either.

Did you know chimpanzees often called monkeys are not monkeys? They're actually from the ape family. Traditionally though people have called chimps and other small primates from the ape family monkeys. Monkeys actually have tails, so technically chimps and orangutans are not monkeys. 

Of course we have a collection of monkey (and ape) t-shirts by  The Mountain®. So if you're a monkey and proudly want to display this fact then you can purchase them from Tam's Treasures here.

Move over Indiana Jones!

Cobra Jones by Michael Cahill 10-4200

Michael's artwork and collaboration with The Mountain® mean you can dress as a Centurian, a Viking or even a Biker!  Why not get festive wearing an Elf Costume to your office Christmas party this year?

All of Michael Cahill's t-shirts can be found at Tam's Treasures and if you love these as much as we do, Michael has been commissioned by The Mountain® to do more.

More about Michael Cahill:

Michael Cahill originally grew up in Southern California, but his passion for painting, history, mythology, and the exploration of far off places have taken him all over the world. Michael's love of reading anything he could find started at a young age, and through reading he felt compelled to draw and paint the images that his imagination was creating. Inspired by the stories of pirates, great explorers, adventurers, fantasy books, science fiction characters, and everything in between - led him to paint all the time in order to show others what he was seeing.

Jumping forward in time, Michael was at university working on his economics degree, when he was contacted by a small visual FX studio that had seen his artwork and wanted to bring him on board to help with their Visual FX workload. That moment was all it took to change his direction, and Michael never looked back.

Now having spent 20 years working on award winning projects as an Art Director, Illustrator, and Production Designer for some of the biggest media companies in the world (Warner Brothers, Microsoft, and Nintendo) he's begun to branch out into the world of art licensing.
He's first series of paintings to be released by The Mountain are based on his love of personas. Wouldn't it be fascinating to be a Viking, Centurion, Explorer, or even Christmas Elf? His paintings encourage us to have fun with our personas, while also being eye catching and quite the conversation starter.

Currently Michael resides in Queensland, Australia with his family, and when he is not painting - he enjoys surfing, exploring his new homeland, and hanging out on the back deck with his two wild kookaburras.

Some of his current (and upcoming release work) work can be previewed at his website:
