Thursday 13: Oh, Canada!

Tomorrow, July 1, is Canada Day. As you may (or may not) know, I was raised in Canada by wonderful Canadian parents--! wasn't born there (that was Northern California), but happily reared in Beautiful British Columbia. Super, Natural British Columbia. It was lovely, and I still (very much) enjoy going to B.C. to visit family.

In honor of Dominion Day (which is what I remember calling the holiday as a child...), I thought I would post 13 images of Canadian "things" for my Thursday 13. It's a pretty random collection, but I found all of them on two of my favorite internet places--Etsy and Pinterest, and they're all items, frankly, I wouldn't mind having! (Well, except for the last one... not sure *anyone* needs that! But I had to include just for the humor factor. Or, I should say, humour factor!)

Enjoy these images, and happy Canada Day to you!

Canada boots (Roots, eh?)

Tartan high-tops (RCAF plaid)

Well, if you didn't know much about Canada, you would now think it's all about maple leaves, geese, mounties... there is of course much more to it than that... much, much more!

When you think of Canada, what do you think of?

To play along with other Thursday 13s, go here. And have a great Thursday!


  1. You know what's silly? When I think about Canada, I think about how the Canadian athletes always have the best Olympic gear. And I think about Tegan and Sara. And natural beauty.

  2. I'm not Canadian, but I LOVE that maple leaf pendant! What a fabulous accessory to add a little personal touch to an outfit.

    My experience with Canada is very limited. Last summer on a cruise to Alaska, one of our port stops was in Victoria. The city was beautiful, and I would have loved to explore more, but we only had a few hours, unfortunately. On the same cruise, we spent the day in Skagway, Alaska and had the opportunity to go into Fraser, which is probably the tiniest town in all of Canada (I assume). I love traveling and Canada is somewhere I'd love to go back to!

    Happy Thursday!

  3. I'm a US American, but...Oh, Canada, I stand on guard thee!

  4. Maple marshmellows? Love it!

    Happy TT,

  5. How kind of you to remember your roots...bless you. I do realize the value of living in this country. We are fortunate, indeed.

    Have a great Canada Day and 4th of July!!! This way you get double for your money...

  6. Let me share an investors viewpoint of Canada. Here some of the greatest recent Canadian success stories. Lululemon Athletica, Silver Wheaton, Goldcorp, Royal Bank of Canada, Encana, Canadian Oil Sands, and the fading famous Reasearch In Motion.
