Flags on a stick day 2

Surely even SPRING will find us...
as I write this we still have snowbanks on our property...

Isn't this one soooo welcoming....


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) 

Good Morning WAVE makers....ohhhhhh how lovely to see
ones that were not buried in that white stuff lol
YOU alll did us proud., such sentimental stories too
...get out there and cheer for them....
and today we will cheer LOUDLY for these ladies...


LIFE is a BEACH...this made me SMILE...IT IS BRIGHT, 
it has flowers in the background...it is sooooo warm
and filled with humour...yep....it wowed me...


And this one looked like it is still frozen and waiting to come to life...
YEP she is still in the midst of winter snow everywhere...
but still it warmed my heart for creativity..

ps. where is our SPRING...darn it.. lol


  1. Just got up and it is cold and windy! Great day to fly a flag!

  2. Great morning! I'm still trying to decide just which fruit I am on the beach!

  3. Oh the creativity going on. I wish my life were at the beach EVERY day! And I've decided I'm a two peaches girl!

  4. Goodness! So many amazing flags today and I'm loving it!

  5. Squirrels, fish, frogs, flowers and fruit women have made beautiful music together today !

  6. What a bright and Hoppy Day! Thanks for all the beautiful flags ... :) Pat

  7. Some really cute flags again today!

  8. Today's flags made me smile. So delightful!

  9. So lovely flags today. The flag with the fruit ladies is my favorite.

  10. Oh, I just love those! What a fun day. (Now, I'm off to finish final touches and photos!) Beth @ Words & Stitches, pbstrand@msn.com

  11. Come on spring, we are waiting... Great flags. I love the fruit ladies. I'm not sure which one I am, not a one has big enough hair to be me...lol

  12. Another day of flying flags and being inspired. Thank you sew very much dear...

  13. Well it sure has been nice flag flying weather... Love those fruit ladies at the beach!

  14. I am going to have to go back and get caught up tomorrow. How I wish I had been able to get my act together and done this hop but I guess getting the desire back is part of it. The picks today are amazing as was yesterday! But I bet the others had cool things to show as well.

  15. I think this hop came at the perfect time to add a little spring cheer to so many still snowed inside. I am love seeing so many creative ideas!

  16. The flags have me dreaming of warmer weather.

  17. This has been a fun hop, its amazing how much creativity people pack into a little flag.


You think they are just words...they are sew much more than that...your wee messages tell me, you are kind, smart and important...
