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.

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.

Love my Local is a great website for bamboo cutting boards done by a Vancouver artist. They make the perfect cheese platter for your  Canada 150 celebrations!

Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) is a large part of Canadian history and an excellent source of Canadiana. The ultimate being the HBC Canoe which is a collaboration with Langford Canoe.  The HBC line offers Towels, mugs, t-shirts and  blankets with the signature HBC stripes.   They also carry all the Canadian Olympic branded items.

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 and Craft Ontario shop in Yorkville are other great destinations to buy Canadian designer goods.

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.

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!

    Curtis Wilson’s flag is absolutely beautiful and should be our national flag! Fantastic art work.
