The Great Canadian Giveaway Linky ~ Week of July 24th

Welcome to the The Great Canadian Giveaway Link-Up 
This is a weekly link-up, with a new linky published every Thursday (often up by Wednesday night).

It came from the 70's... and it should probably stay there #ThrowbackThursday

From my mothers 1973 copy of "The Complete Book of Handicrafts" I bring you this very, ummm..., lets say "unique" hat.

I have no idea why Mom never made this one.

#TravellingMaple Tuesdays - Share Your Instagram #Travel Photos!

Welcome to Travelling Maple Tuesdays! Each Tuesday we invite you to post a picture on Instagram and include the hastag ‪#‎TravellingMaple‬.

Travelling Maple is a website meant to showcase Canadian travel content. Canadian writers are invited to submit their travel themed posts. It can be about worldwide travel, or travel that takes place here in Canada; around the world or down the block, we want to hear about it (Remember, what's local for you can be a tourist destination for someone else).

Each Tuesday we want to take it to Instagram and share our Canadian perspective on travel with the world. We invite Canadian bloggers (or expats) to join in. Post any sort of travel photo, tell us where it's from and be sure to tag it #TravellingMaple.

If you decide to take part we ask that you share the love. For each picture you post please comment on or like at least two pictures with the #TravellingMaple hashtag.

And please be sure to follow your hosts:

We can’t wait to connect with you and see your awesome travel photos!

Plan Your Family's Summer Getaway, Visit the Eaton Chelsea Toronto

July is more then half way done, but there's still plenty of time to plan some family fun. For those of you here in Ontario who don't want to travel far, I've got the perfect destination, somewhere that caters to kids and has enough onsite activities to keep you there for multiple days -- the Eaton Chelsea in Toronto. No seriously, this is one of the most family friendly places I've ever stepped foot in. We visited them over the March Break and I was blown away by just how kid friendly they were, and by how much there was to do without even leaving the hotel. How does this apply to your summertime plans? Well, the special family activities that they offer over the March Break are just a mini-version of what they offer all summer long.

Join the #CleanWater Photo Challenge, Chance to Win a $250 Wal-Mart Giftcard & More!

How many times in a day does clean water touch your family’s life?  How many times in a week?  In two weeks?

As Canadians, we have a seemingly unlimited supply of clean water, so it’s no wonder that we often take it for granted.  I know I've been guilty of it myself. Brushing our teeth, watering the plants, doing the laundry, having a tall cool glass of water on a hot day. All of that clean water readily and easily available whenever I turn on the tap. It's an invisible part of our lives, one I rarely stop to think about. Yet approximately one billion people in the developing world do not have the same luxury. Every day diseases from contaminated water are killing more children every day than malaria and HIV/AIDS combined (Source: World Health Organization).

I want to dwell on this a bit. I'd like to be a little more aware, and not take clean water for granted. Perhaps even focus a bit more on water conservation, a hot topic for debate between hubby and I (to leave that tap on when you brush, or not?). So to help focus on how lucky I as a Canadian am to have constant ready access to clean water, I am going to take part in P&G's #cleanwater photo challenge.

All Across Canada #ThrowbackThursday

Two weeks ago we saw a vintage map of Canada from the 1967 World Expo Official Guide book. This week I thought I would share the maps of all the provinces and territories. I love the vintage story book illustration style!
