  2. Barbara, is there any significance in the backwards flags? Some look like they're flying on a a flagpole and we're just seeing the reverse side, but others just look a little odd.
    Thanks for this assortment! My favorite is the 1899 flag where the flag pole breaks the frame of the center block. So joyful!

  8. As far as I know some group about 1910 decided flags should always face one way. Some people just like rules. Before that there was no backwards.

  10. There's some great ideas in these quilts.

    As to backwards or upside down flags - now it's considered to be a distress signal. When that started, I don't know - perhaps around 1910 that Barbara mentioned? Or maybe the makers WERE feeling in distress. And we can't discount the possibility that some of the photos got reversed somewhere along the line.

  11. I guess I am going to have to write a post one when the rules were codified for displaying the flag with the starry field on the left. These pictures are NOT reversed. Thanks everyone for the inspiration.

  12. A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
