Pride is Golden

With the 2010 Winter Olympics now in full swing, proud Canadians are tuning in to events to cheer on their favorite athletes. Although hosting the Olympics for the second time is a tremendous honor, one has to wonder what effect the Winter part has on our county’s reputation for cold weather. Will we ever have a chance to host summer games?

Although we are known for chilly Northern weather, Canadian summers are gorgeous and warm. In some areas, you could probably fry an egg on the sidewalk during the sweltering summer months. With an abundance of lakes and rivers for swimming, and plenty of forest for camping, Canadian summer vacation is something to look forward to.

Sunrise, Sunset features some deliciously golden orange picks from the Oh Canada Team. This treasury is a great reminder of weather to come. Soon the mornings will no longer be frosty, and barbeques will be calling out to be lit. This collection was curated by team member Soap Star.

Etsy Picks: Sunrise, Sunset

Red and White, by Simple Sundries is a wonderfully patriotic collection of Canadian made items. The colors of our flag are a classic combination that never goes out of style.

Etsy Picks: Red and White
