food & music & sunsets… oh my Canada! ❤
Today is Canada’s
147th birthday ❤
It’s a long-weekend
and I hope you all are
having a great time!
our true north
strong & free with
food, music and
For me, these are
just a few simple
pleasures that make
this nation great 🙂
My hope for you is
to enjoy these too!
For dinner, we enjoyed Alberta-grown Canadian beef tenderloin with veggies. There was a pint of Samuel Adams amber beer for the head chef and a glass of Apothic Merlot from California for me.
To whet your knitting appetite, the food platter is pictured upon a patriotic pair of prototype place mats 🙂 These are a taste of what’s been on my designing needles. They’re heart-shaped appetizer props, offering you a glimpse of my knitting patterns still to come 🙂
As well, the dinner plates are hand-crafted
by Lakeside Pottery in Niagara-on-the-lake, Ontario, Canada.
Happy 4th of July, to our American next-door neighbours 🙂
And happy Canada Day to all who call our diverse-yet-peaceful nation “home” ❤ Jackie
