Canada Day 2015

Once again Canada Day is almost here.  On Wednesday, July 01st here in Canada we will be celebrating Canada turning 148 years old.  So most of this post has either a red & White theme or something that has to do with Canada.

I grabbed the Canada Keep Calm I Love You mug off the shelf at a local second hand store since it was perfect for this post.  The postcards of the Mounties is so Canadian. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police formed in 1873 it's title was shortened down to the RCMP in the 1920's. 
Then we have a dress mannequin sporting a vintage homemade polyester dress in red with white polka dots.
This red flower brooch by Coro was a second hand store find too.
And what can you ask for more for a Canada day collage then Canada's crest and Canada written across the bottom on a record cover.

I went looking for a red and white paperweight in my collection and found I do not have one in the almost 200 that I have, so to represent red and white I'm using these red and clear paperweights.

You may be wondering how this book fits into my Canada Day theme well it's the trailer and camping idea everyone was bailing out of town on Friday hitting the road to find their camping paradise.   I'm sure many will make a extra extra long weekend on the Monday, Tuesday side of Wednesday or the Thursday, Friday side.  I love the cover of this book with it's 50's look.

I love old pictures and these ones are from an album I bought a couple of months ago the above pictures are from someones trip here in British Columbia going up the Fraser Canyon up into the Cariboo.  I have many memories of doing this route with my family when I was a kid in the 1970's.
Some Facts About Canada:
We are the 2nd largest Country in land mass which is made up of 10 Provinces & 3 Territories.
Provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland / Labrador.
Territories: Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut.
Canadian Sport: HOCKEY and more HOCKEY
Canada's National Animal is the beaver.

And of course our neighbors to the South of us in the United States will be celebrating Independence Day on Saturday July 04th I thought I would add the flag picture from my husbands family collection and some red, white and blue with the paperweight.
I hope both countries have a great holiday day.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
Have a great week.
