Terra Tee Project Preview's First Tee-Shirt

Give gifts that give back. Check.
Going green this holiday. Check.

No matter what your check list is this holiday, we thought you would like to get a PREVIEW of the all-new Terra Tee Project.

The Terra Tee Project, an organic T-shirt company with a global mission, will soon announce the debut of its environmentally-minded t-shirt line.

With the purchase of each Terra Tee, a donation will be made to one of several charities dedicated to improving our quality of life on this planet - from cleaning up the air and water to protecting the animals and the earth. The debut collection will feature four t-shirt designs in styles for men and women, one for earth, air (pictured), water and life.

With a hint of retro and a nod to sophisticated artist design, each tee was inspired by California’s miles of picturesque coastline, wild meadows, and blue skies, and will be made right here in the USA of organic cotton.

The product of the long-time dream of a gal-on-the-go and mother of two, the Terra Tee Project was created by Jennifer Capaci as an extension of her commitment to leaving a living legacy for future generations.

Look for the launch of the complete debut collection in early fall.

Celebrate the Art of Living in Orange County

You’ve done the Home Tours and the Open Houses, been through countless showcase homes, but you have never experienced a house like this.

On September 13, 2008, all five senses will come alive when the doors to Château de l’Eau open to reveal the first-ever 2008 Art House presented by Orange Coast, a celebration of art, design and architecture created to embrace and inspire and provide support and funding for local arts education. This unprecedented 8 day event, incorporating five evening soirées, is made possible through the collaborative efforts of Cuvée Estates, Covenant Hills at Ladera Ranch, the Capistrano Unified School District Foundation (CUSD), and Orange Coast.

From contemporary art to Plein Air landscapes, fine photography to sculptures, the 2008 Art House will be a comprehensive installation of mediums and techniques used by artists in and around Orange County. Visitors to Art House will have ample opportunity to roam at their leisure and experience original works by such well-known local artists as Nathan Fischer, Susan Marcley, Toni Danchik, and Susan Volpé on display in 29 rooms throughout the expansive Chateau d l’Eau custom built French Chateau, a stunning 8,143-square-foot French chateau-inspired residence conceived by distinguished architect and builder Michael Schrock of Costa Mesa-based Cuvée Estates located behind the gates of Covenant Hills at Ladera Ranch, CA.
