cocktail flag


Our super-charming cousins, Noami and Ian, have been in town, and introduced a new use for what I have always called “Pot Flags”. Noami describes it better than I do (in the post linked above), but basically the concept is to put out a flag whenever the bar is open, or you are just in the mood to entertain. That way, friends or neighbors will feel free to pop in when the time is right.

As it turns out, buying through my website was less than self-explanatory, so I will be working on correcting that. In the meantime, I have begun to add flags to my Etsy shop, where more will be added on a regular basis.

  1. Hi Ricki~~ I remember hearing a similar idea for the neighborhood swimming pool residence to manage the barrage of pint-sized guests. Kids were welcome to swim if they saw the flag. Your flag is for the bigger kids. 🙂

  2. Wendy~Thanks always for your visits and your kind words…they give me heart.

    Grace~Sounds like a holdover from lifeguards’ signs to let us know when it was safe to go in the surf when I was a kid. I’m thinking mine would also work for folks who live in big, nameless condominium complexes. That would definitely not be us.

  3. Cool flag! I like the idea of hanging out a flag to signal folks to come on by, although I am too much of a hermit to actually do such a thing. 🙂 Congrats on your Etsy store, I love that site!

    Oh, fyi, crocus are so not any trouble at all! Easy to plant, no care required, always come up. The plain ones are kind of boring but those lilac-colored species ones you commented on have such an interesting shape and the color is so nice, I can’t tell you how much enjoyment they are giving me right now! Cheap happiness, what could be better?!

  4. Karen~That purple and orange combo is anything but boring. These final words of encouragement have tipped me over the edge. They are going on my wish list for fall planting, and I will think of you when they come up in the spring. Thanks!
