A little about this website and about me 🙂
Everything Country CA is a site devoted to Country and Farmhouse Decor, Country Music from around the world, USA, and Canada, as well as Country Living, Vintage and Collectibles, Country Recipes and updates on our Cabin in the Woods. It also includes posts on our renovating projects, and staging our home with of course a farmhouse / country style! I love creating vintage and antique displays of my collectibles.
As part of this website, we provide a vintage and antique rental service. As well, we maintain an online Country Store with quality handpicked products from Amazon.
This is me, Bonnie, the owner/author at Everything Country CA, Inc. We are based out of Victoria, BC, and incorporated across Canada.
A little about me. I grew up on a small mixed farm in southeast Saskatchewan. I love anything that has that a country feel and that reminds me of home, whether it is from Canada, our good neighbor, the USA or from around the world.
It has been a few years now since I lived in Saskatchewan. But I have always felt that my roots and upbringing have grounded me well, gave me that work ethic and honesty/integrity that I would say most prairie /country folk have. Every time I visit, I wish I didn’t have to leave. The farm still calls out to me, whether it is the wheat fields or the serene pastural views, or the Qu’Appelle valley close to our home farm in South east Saskatchewan. We still have many cousins there and I will talk about my Finnish family roots in a future post.
Born in BC on Vancouver Island, from the age of 8, I grew up on the family farm in Saskatchewan. I also lived and worked for 5 years in Ontario and PEI before moving back to BC in 1992. This gave me a chance to experience the Canadian landscape and the diversity of cultures and history.
I worked in IT for 35 years in various sectors, hold a B.Sc. in Computer Science, PMP and CMC designations, and managed large budgets and contracts. I have also renovated 5 homes with my husband and have been an avid collector of vintage and antique collectibles since I was a teenager.
We have owned a rustic off the grid cabin on Vancouver Island for the past 20 years. I am a huge country music fan and a member of the BC Country Music Association.
I am now ‘retired’ with my husband in Victoria, BC. We have two children who have recently flown the coop, so this empty nester is finally getting to do what I really love.
I hope you enjoy the best of country that I will try to bring you!
