Yesterday, July 1st, we celebrated Canada Day 150.
That's how old Canada is. It's really quite young compared to other countries!
Maplelea, a Canadian 18" doll company, had the cutest outfit for the dolls so I bought two.
I love celebrations and I love to decorate.
I chose my Hawaiian doll I purchased in Honolulu in 2014 to model one of the outfits. She's on the left holding the Maplelea flag. It doesn't have anything to attach it to the doll's hand. Tenney is on the right and she's holding a flag from Build a Bear, which has an elastic sewn on to attach with. The tin is from Purdy's chocolates.
Here is a Newberry doll wearing her red and white dress with the AG dolls, plus a pretty plate I purchased downtown in a tourist shop, and a lovely print I found at Winner's.
It was hard finding anything that had 150 on it so I was very pleased with my purchases.
This was a large flag I put in our front window. I got it at London Drugs. I only put the dolls in the window for the photo as they are too valuable to leave in sunshine!
We had a wonderful warm sunny day, and my parents and one sister with her family came over for a delicious BBQ with corn on cob and salads in the afternoon.
Happy Canada 150!
