Canadian Pacific Hotel Blanket

I finally got a chance to visit Spruce Collective, with a great pal of mine Barbara from Hodge Podge. Spruce is a wonderful little gem, located in Abbotsford, BC., full of incredible vintage finds and it boasts a workshop in the back of the store for creative classes.... this just means that wicked sweet craft projects go on there. Spruce also has a wonderful selection of props that can be rented out too. How ingenious is that?? So while I was there, I knew I wouldn't leave empty handed and ended up with a fabulous vintage Canadian Pacific Hotel blanket. On cool winter nights, it comes in handy for a quick throw and looks pretty awesome on my couch. I also have a collection of old hangers and just by chance, I noticed I have one from The Canadian Pacific Hotel. Do any of you have a piece of Old Canadiana?

A little bit of history ............

The first Canadian Pacific Hotel was located in Vancouver at the corner of Granville & Georgia Street. Today the hotel is run under the Fairmont name.

circa 1890
