Canada Day Is Coming

With Canada Day on July 01st quickly approaching I decided to do the following collages with a red and white theme or an item totally Canadian.

  • The red and white vase said 70's to me I like how the white kind of swirls into the red.  There was once a sticker on it but has been removed before I got it.  Who or where it was made is anyones guess.
  • I found the glass and metal flower frog holding my Canadian flag at a second hand store.
  • I'm going to guess the tin with the Mountie on the horse at one time held candies or small biscuits.
  • My paperweight was handcrafted in Ontario, Canada by Tarax Infinity Products Ltd.
  • I went into my material closet and pulled out some material that was only red and white.  The middle piece is a vintage piece from the box of material I received that had been my grandmothers.
  • My Poppy made it simply because it's red.
  • These are small red and white Pyrex refrigerator containers.  I'm not sure if these ever only came in white or if the pattern has been worn off long before I found it?
  • The Maple leaf bottle at one time held Maple syrup.
  • The local produce in season at the moment are these wonderful Strawberries.
  • This old CN Train Station is in Fort Langley, British Columbia, Canada.  The old fort is just up the road and was the Hudson Bay Companys trading post at one time.  This is one of the historical sites to be found around British Columbia.
