Oh Canada

O Canada! Our home and native land…

Oh Canada indeed!

Every post on Pinterest seems to be about the 4th of July…

So here’s my take on easy Canada Day décor for all you Canucks out there.

Here’s my glamorous cardboard taxidermy styled moose *thanks Tove!* … I may have glittered his antlers using Martha Stewart glitter. And beside him, an easy peasy tissue paper flower.

Who could resist such an awesome pillow from the Colin & Justin Home line... this “Eh” pillow teamed up with an iconic Hudson’s Bay blanket.

I bought my dad this great vintage Hudson’s Bay whisky crate off of Kijijji. It’s perfect for shlepping all of your Canada Day requirements off to camp… or maybe just to your deck.

My dad also found some classic Canadian Vinyl to add to the mix which would pair nicely with a portable Crosley Cruiser turntable.

However, the best decorations of all…
Light up the sky!

And from the amazing Jimmy Buffett, I share:

The rockets in the air
And the people everywhere
Put away their differences for a while
Yes I am still a child
When it comes to something wild
Oh that was the night
I painted the sky
