Rest and Relaxation and Art for the May Long Weekend

Well, hello there! My name is Sydney the Squirrel, I hear you may be heading out of the city and into the wilderness this May long weekend! I may be a city squirrel now but I have some fun getaway inspired pieces from the gallery I currently call home to share with you!

Planning on relaxing by the water in an Adirondack chair? How about an Adirondack chair made of recycled cutlery like this piece by Al Hattie? This one is the perfect size for me!

Or why not grab some colouring sheets for quieter days at the cottage? I love to colour and there are some great colouring pages by local artists Jodie Hansen, Briana Corr Scott, Susan Black and more at the gallery.

There are also grab bags of Odd Bird Designs trinkets and jewellery for just $12! A great little gift for friends, grandkids, your favourite squirrel (hint hint)...

If you're like me and will be in the city this weekend do what I do and escape through art! Dreaming of a canoe trip? Transport yourself to the lake with this piece by Mark Brennan!
