Flags on a Stick on day 7

Ohhhh simplicity at it's best and really a perfect
flag for our summer...
such a welcome blooming treat...

Seasonal Flags on your property would certainly remind
you of all the good our LIFE has to offer...!


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....

ohhh and look at this....

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) 

We are soooooo pleased to embrace
yet a pretty amazing day of waving flags....
OH my bring such JOY to our lives...

WAVE that WOW Flag

 Now we were asked to tell a story about our Quilts
something about US....welllll you just know this lady
who always brings so much of HER to these hops..
got the memo...wait till you see the other side...


This is our very first die cut flag...and an egg
with gingham and ric rac..OH MY...
does this not scream summer and easter...
YEP...which is why she is WOW in Creativity today...
