SPT: Emblem of the land I love



/I considered sitting out of SPT this month, the theme is just so American. I decided to leave it to a coin toss: Heads, I'm out. Maple leaves, I'm in.

i am super thrilled to see my neighbors, er, neighbOURs to the north participating this month!!

Hilary said...

You are really cute.

And you do such fun things for these SPT's.

Laurie said...

You are so clever. Glad you're in, and I've always been a big fan of the Maple Leaf emblem (and it's citizens).

Lucy said...

I'm glad you chose not to be left out. Because, it might come from an American song, but just like you proved, there are emblems of the lands we love in every nation. Oh Canada! Hey...I've sung that song before:)

Denise said...

It might be a different
Grand Old Flag, but it's still grand!

Tasha said...

Love it! I was shopping for robeez shoes for Stella and saw some that were maple leaves, I thought of you and then and came and read this...

April said...

I'm ever so glad.

You look stunning, of course, but I'm cringing at bit that it's possibly still jacket weather there.

Ok, maybe the songs are very American, but the patriotic thing is all the same. Glad you are participating. See how much I know about Canada, I didn't know if that was heads or not. I have traveled and lived all over Europe, but I don't know much about this side of the world. Maybe one day I will get up to Canada! Thank Heavens for heads, though. Maybe I can learn a little through your posts!

Great picture. Growing up in upstate NY, our coins were always some canadian. We took them like american money. Miss that.

Elizabeth said...

Yes, so glad you're in. If there were awards you would get cutest spt's!

michelle said...

Ha! I didn't know if it was heads or not either! So glad you're in, where would I be without my favorite spt?

Courtney said...

Glad you are in...no matter where you reside...you have to have some patriotsim for your country! I love your cute face and your maple leaf flag flying high...whoohoo!

You were my first thought when I saw the theme this month. I thought, "Oh Good, can't wait to see what awesome things Barb does for the land SHE loves." Glad you stayed in, I think Lelly did a good job picking phrases from the songs that can be applied to any beloved country.

And now I'm educated about the heads and tails part. It wasn't until I read other people's comments that I realized that was actually heads. I'm slow that way. So what does the tail look like?

Jill said...

I'm so glad you're in!

Cecilia said...

Yay.... I'm glad you're in! I'm a fan of you SPT's. My husband lived in Canada growing up, but I never been there. We were planing a trip there this summer to visit his grandma that is 92. Maybe I'll see you if we go!

Jenny said...

Who doesn't love their fellow Canadians anyhow? Great SPT.

Tiffany said...

It's so neat to have such a strong symbol like the maple leaf--great!
