Canada 150! Celebrate with some interesting Canadiana
Happy Birthday Canada! #Canada150
This week we are coming up to Canada’s 150th Birthday! I thought I should highlight some of the fun items you can find to celebrate.
This Canada pillow done by Cat Studio, sold at Root’s Canada stores, is a nice pictorial of Canada from coast to coast. They also have a Canada 150 line of clothing apparel to sport you patriotism. http://www.roots.com/ca/en/celebrating-canada150.html
The Drake General Store is always a great destination for Canadiana. They even have an x-Oh Canada shop on their website to source anything from a Royal Canadian Mountie mug t0 a tea towel of all our provinces. http://www.drakegeneralstore.ca/x-oh-canada#
This Charles Pachter collaboration with HBC is a clever twist on the original HBC striped blanket and looks wonderful as a throw on a sofa or bed for a brilliant pop of colour.
At the Art Gallery of Ontario you can find unique houseware items by Canadian designers. Shop AGO
The Gardiner Museum gardinermuseum.on.ca/shop/ and Craft Ontario shop in Yorkville are other great destinations to buy Canadian designer goods. craftontario.com/shop/craft
To celebrate the First Nations heritage west coast Kwakwaka’wakw artist Curtis Wilson’s flag is a work of art that represents all of the First Nations people in Canada. It is a lovely addition to any flag pole.
For that cheap and cheerful touch to a back yard BBQ check out these great chairs at Canadian Tire for $39.
We are truly blessed to be Canadian and we all should celebrate this freedom we have to live in such a spectacular diverse and accepting nation. Happy Canada Day! Enjoy your celebration whether it be watching the Fireworks over Toronto Harbour, a backyard BBQ, or a cottage retreat. Wishing you a safe and happy long weekend!
