Happy Canada Day! There's something strange about a hump day holiday, but we'll take it. Canada, our beautiful country is 148! We've already tapped into the maple syrup with breakfast and our day will include much more Canadiana. We hope you enjoy the day too!
Today, our friends over at Little Blue Canoe are launching their online shop! It's quite an appropriate day for a launch, they specialize in curating Canada, after all. You'll have to see it for yourself, but they have selected the best of what Canada has to offer in the way of children's apparel, toys and gifts to home and bath. Everything is lovingly curated by the enthusiastic and darling Kelly Bruce who's based in Calgary, Alberta; but you'll often find her traveling across Canada scouting more delightful items:
As I began to explore the different avenues in which I could express this sentiment, I realized that I had to look no further than my own backyard. I was drawn to the work of amazing Canadian artisans, craftspeople and designers. From this talented group, I was inspired to draw together the people and products that linked together my passion with the essence of being Canadian.
Kelly's taste is impeccable and there's a common thread of cuteness, whimsy and of course, Canada. Head over to the Little Blue Canoe to check out Kelly's collection and meet some of Canada's finest. You'll find Swell Made Co. art prints, stationery and totes amongst the goods. We're so honoured and proud to be part of a lineup highlighting so many great Canadian vendors.
She'll also feature her vendors and tips on how to put the shop goods to use throughout the year, so watch the blog for ideas and new products. Kelly can't wait to meet you!
We'll keep this post short and sweet so you can get out there and enjoy our beautiful home (every stunning corner from sea to sea). Happy Canada Day!
