Flags on a Stick DAY 1

Well by now you know I love anything 

I am pretty sure I will have something 
designed with these colours....(wink) 


It all started with our delightful neighbours ( Bob and Darlene)  who
seasonally add FLAGS ON A STICK
that always has me smiling when I drive by.
So when I got home after seeing her Christmas one,
and lo and behold someone had a company with
that exact name…. Yes, totally freaked me out! 

Of course then I am already thinking-- BLOG HOP!
I am already thinking "WE can design our very own FLAGS"
I am already thinking " Maybe you too will want to play"

Yep that is what I was thinking… ( my creative muscles have
been- well shall we say…sparkling…my DH calls 
me sparky- now you know why)

OUR cheerleader for this hop is no other 
( link to schedule)

She knows all about waving FLAGS, she is a great
cheerleader and keeps us all waving back and forth...

She always has great ideas for projects and no doubt 
will have us in the PINK with her new flag.....

NOW get ready to cheer our ladies who will also
be waving FLAGS....leave them comments...
you have no idea how that can be reciprocated
into creating a LOVELY day for someone....

FOR THOSE who will be needing FLAG POLES after this event....

 I have 2 choices for you…

Obviously Flagsonastick has some….
here is their link...

( they are both our sponsors for this event
and we thank them with many WAVES of our FLAGS) 

Flags on a Stick
( think flags. think this company)
She has amazing flags for every season, every occasion
they are bright, they are cheery, they will make you smile...



As we always provide some  choices..

HERE is another… I came across this POLE company
that has some very interesting unique finials on the poles
The GENTLEMAN I spoke to really GOT we are doing…
His role will become known during our HOP… 

of course they would have a HEART

I know of at least one lady who will be showing her HEART
and new FLAG.

nooo not a STAR

I know of at least one lady who will be showing a STAR
with her NEW FLAG

is that a LADY BUG ? 
( I know of at least one lady who will be showing her lady bug 
with a NEW FLAG On it) 

OHHHH ONE  more thing….

I would also like to convey, that it is a possibility
if any of YOU create and design an OUTSTANDING FLAG
the owner of Flagsonastick will share your idea with a company
that manufactures her FLAGS….
and you could someday have a REAL FLAG on the market!

So what are you waiting for?
( of course after YOU design one) 

I saw FLAGS, did you ? Did you cheer for them...
Did they see you....? GOOOD...

HERE are our top 2 today.....
our first day was a welcomed treat...all of our
flag creators stepped it up and we are soooo pleased
to see your flags waving...


This lady welcomed us with flowers....embroidered flowers
at that and with her lovely surrounding....
GREEN everything...I am soooo envious...we had more snow
here yesterday sooooooo for colour, warmth, flowers...
YOU are our TOPPPPPS today...

Tops for CREATIVITY...

And this lady just wowed us for CREATIVITY... her bunny in his car
complete with a trunk full of easter eggs..and look daffodils....


  1. This is a such a great idea and has introduced me to a whole new world. We do not have garden flags here in Australia so I will certainly be the first in my street

  2. I have to say that I never thought I'd be a flag person, being rather a recluse by nature and keeping my emotions and feelings mostly hidden, but after browsing around Flags on a Stick a couple of weeks ago with the gajillion flags, and then today seeing all of the lovely display poles (I am a sucker for wrought iron anything), I want a pole, I want a couple, I want to make flags. And I'm gonna!! So there. Mdm. Samm -- has anyone ever told you that you can be quite a seductive tease? ;-)

  3. This is such a sweet and great idea :)
    I love it....
    Huge hugs x

  4. I created my Flag Hop wish list and Love this idea! I can't wait to see all the ideas created! And I would love to win one of the flag on my wish list.

  5. I always love the first day of a hop...such a thrill to see the beginnings of what's to come! So many great ideas!

  6. Still chuckling about Brenda's comment. yes, Madame Samm... you have a way of causing us all to want to create!

    The 1st day of flags waving is wonderful! Great imagination.... and now I must think Pink. lol

  7. What a great start! There will be flags waving everywhere now!

  8. Brenda hit the nail on the head about how these blogs work on us but I love them all! And I'm looking forward to seeing all the creative flags yet to come. I've had numerous flags for years and need a facelift on my collection!

  9. Spring is Springing!!!! These little flags are too cute!

  10. Lovely flags today ! Flags on a Stick is so generous to the hop winners! WOW !

  11. I love the idea of flags on a stick. The flags look great!

  12. I just want to let you know how much I enjoy reading your blogs. I can actually feel your energy and enthusiasm when I read them, I can understand why your husband calls you sparky. Thank you for making the world a little brighter.

    1. Ohhh Fonda...you placed a smile upon my lips that will be lasting..thank you...next time you drop in, please leave an email..you are a no reply blogger which means when I try to reply, I don't have a record of where you are, no email to answer back to.

  13. Sew nice to wake up to see these pretty flags waving this morning. Thanks to all who shared today. Looking forward to all the stops in the hop ... :) Pat

  14. Flags on a Stick has so many great flags! Time to add to my collection.

  15. I thank you sew much for coming up with this hop. What fun and I got my poll for my garden. Am now waiting for some pretty flags.

  16. So many great flags on stick. As we don´t have similar flags in Sweden and I have no garden at all, I will only enjoy following all the creative ladies from the side. But I am sure I will have fun and there will be many smiles on my face during the blog hop. It is a wonderful idea and I love, love that Easter bunny.

  17. I am sew into flags! Super choices today.

  18. So creative. That little easter bunny is adorable. What a fun hop!

  20. As Eddie Izzard says, "Do you have a flag?" I love your hops and this one will be flying high. Creative Flag Bliss...

  21. A wonderful first day of waving flags!

  22. I could hardly wait to get on my computer this morning to see the first set of flags. This is my first time to participate in one of your blog hops. My day is the 31st. I'm sure glad I wasn't first. It took me forever to decide on something, but I got it all done.
    The wind will be blowing harder tomorrow so I hope my little flag will show out for some better pictures!
    Thearica has been such a great help!

  23. A great start to the hop! Cute and creative flags everywhere!
