It’s been 150 years since Canada became a nation. July 1st used to be called Dominion Day when I was young.
I live in a humungous village with 35 million people! Canada means “village” in Huron-Iroquois, and today our VILLAGE is 150 years old.
I bought this red and white gingham summer dress with a vintage vibe especially for a ’50s birthday party I was invited to. Unfortunately, it didn’t arrive on time for the party, but I’m getting lots of wear out of it during these Canada Day festivities.
It’s a full circle dress, perfect for twirling on the dance floor.
Sweet 3D cherries
It was a lovely day for our annual visit to Doon Heritage Village.
The charming old covered bridge, a remnant from the last century.
Go through the bridge and walk into a quaint little village with authentic houses and shops built over a hundred years ago.
The villagers will greet you with smiles and wearing fashion from 1914.
Cherry jewellery, Canada sunglasses, red lipstick and a little Canadian flag on my cowgirl hat just for the fun of it.
Time to catch the train home at Petersburg Station after an enjoyable trip back in time to a more simple life. This train station was transported from the town of Petersburg. The locomotive is not actually in use, but it’s fun to imagine.
God keep our land glorious and free!
Happy 4th of July to my American friends!
