Flags on a Stick day 4

OHHHH Pansies...be still my heart...I love these
flowers in the summer....they last forever
just like this flag....

I can think of a couple ladies who love these colours...


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) 

Every one of YOU could have been here today..
HOLY MOLY, great flags from around the world....

OUR TOP 2 and it was a very difficult choice...
in fact I think I will have some breakfast first
before we announce so I can ponder a bit more...wink....

APOLOGIES...today our crew will be completely 
done of putting everything back that was in storage..
I had some errands to run before they arrive..
They will be here the rest of the day....

And then.....OUR HOME will be OURS...
yep...I am soooo behind in so many areas
but I WILL HAVE a flag by next week...
if I have to burn some candles and drink
carafes of coffee wink....

no really WOWZEE

Ok, now really, I want to live in cowboy country....
if they look like this....Truly a great flag...what
a delightful welcome to any ranch....
YEP, I want ONE OF THEM! wink...

( 2 today, how could you not mention both of these) 

This lady could use some smiles today as she shares so many
smiles with us..., if you know this "other lady". well she
has some monkey boys.... this flag just brought a chuckle
this morning...and of course she knows I have been
rather busy and made numerous flags...
SHE WINS......

And this lady...OMG ...this is a pirates flag....the movement of the design
is just amazing....can you imagine this on a pole....
I would hang it in my house though....I would paint a pole alongside the wall...
OHHH that is an idea.... truly amazing detail.....
