Happy Birthday Canada!

At 145, you're still just a baby.   In your honour I thought I'd post a series of photos of things I saw this weekend that were red and white....
The mannequin that greets you at The Sentimentalist was all decked out in her Canada Day best... was shop owner Melinda!  I love the little teardrop-shaped cutouts in the neckline of her dress

I wore my new Vivienne Westwood-designed Melissa sandals.  I fell in love with the heart shape and they were marked down to less than half price.

I went to a Roller Derby game in Sarnia last night, and the visiting team, Guelph's Royal City Killer Queens, were all decked out in red and white

This young woman, who used to play with the Guelph team, had the most glorious rose tattoos. 


  1. Gorgeous Husband and I did the Canada Day thing too, although just by ourselves, as we don't know anybody else who is Canadian and lives near us. Still, one does one's best, considering. Hope you can hop over to my blog and check it out.

    Cheers from England,

  2. Happy Holiday! I LIKE your new sandals. And isn't watching Roller Derby fun. It always brings out a side of me that I scarcely knew was there.

  3. Great ode to red and white! Wonderful sandals too. Did you see The Fashionable Bureaucrat? Check out her shoes... I love Melinda's dress and the display outside the store. Netting on a hat...aaah.

  4. Happy belated Canada Day! I love your fabulous sandals and blue painted nails and those tats are gorgeous! xxx

  8. Stunning red sandals with blue polish and Happy Canada Day to you!

  9. Love the Melissa sandals. Not only do they look terrific, they also smell like candy! Your pedicure shows them off to full advantage. Fab! And the roller derby tattoos are quite excellent.

  10. You should ask Roses the story about her tattoo ... and what she's going to do with it! It's a fabulous tale (but I don't want to give it away)!
