Flags on a stick day 5

Welcome back as we continue until April 3rd with more flags on a stick
and a pole...( this one can hang from your home).

A lovely summer bouquet, a touch of patriotism...


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....

March 31st

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) 

Check back to see our tops for Wow and Creativity!

( it will be posted later this afternoon, 
I have some appts today that require my attention)

Apologies I ran much later than expected 

without further delay..


Maybe because there is so much GREEN, maybe it is 
because there is that cute wee dog in the pic.....
maybe it is because there are flowers embroidered on this
flag...maybe that and a whole lot more reasons....


and Maybe because we all just needed to smile BIG SMILES today
this lady knows how to make us happy in her creativity...

OHHHH By the way look here...
I am in a blog hop ...oh good GOD
we are still waving FLAGS...
this time the UNION JACK....

and by golly I am soooo ready for this
NOT  but I will be on my day....

Canada and England are joined
as the Commonwealth of Nations..
( which means we like them a lot...
tea, crumpets, devon shire cream.....)
