How timely to read on houzz an article about FLAGS, seeing as today marks the cusp of a three-day holiday weekend here in the States: for Memorial Day.

flagsAuthor Alison Hodgson’s own decorating scheme is shown in the photo: a pleated fan above the door; flags line the walkway.

The building my mother lives in has a flag pole — flag flaps in the breeze all weathers, all hours. So it is a surprise to read that although the ‘inclement’ weather indicative should be observed, the lowering at sunset has looser restrictions. If the flag is illuminated it can fly at night.

There is a website for up-to-the-minute HALF-STAFF notifications, but the major half-staff dates are:

* May 15, Peace Officers Memorial Day

* September 11

* (early October) Sunday of Fire Prevention Week

* December 7, National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

The article discusses the pertinent information for flying the U.S. Flag: which flag takes precedence if flying more than one, which way is “right side up” etc.

Pity there’s so little history of the flag. Websites do exist. And what would talk of the flag be without talk of Betsy Ross! so here is some additional information:

The rule of thumb for FLYING YOUR FLAG Memorial Day is: Half-Staff from sunrise until noon, then Full Staff the rest of the day.
Here at CellularWindowShades.com we are having our own MEMORIAL DAY celebrations: our 20% off Skylight Shades Sale continues through Monday, May 27th.

Great New “How To” Video

added to our CellularWindowShade’s YouTube channel
(remember to subscribe!)

cordloop video

This video augments our written instructions, mailed with every “Valet Kit” (2 cords per kit) order; it does not replace it. So now two great sources for Do-It-Yourselfers.

The instructions are specific to the Symphony Shade brand of window blinds, though you should be able to extrapolate the general concept, if you have some other type of cord loop shade. Give the video a look! It’s an easy in-home fix to a broken window shade.

OCTOBER is “National Window Covering Safety Month”. This nationwide campaign, by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Window Covering Safety Council, alerts consumers to the potential hazards of window cords. The push is on to use only CORDLESS window treatments for child-friendly homes.

The Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) has the following tips to ensure that your child’s room is a SAFE room:

  • NEVER place a crib, playpen, bed, or low-standing furniture near a window. Young Children can fall through an open window or window screen.
  • CRIBS should be in compliance with the latest safety standards, with snug-fitting mattress and head- and footboards without decorative cut-outs or corners post extensions.
  • Once your child is able to push up on hands or knees, REMOVE crib toys strung across the crib or playpen to avoid strangulation hazards.
  • Fluffy comforters or pillows are a suffocation hazard. Keep them OUT of the crib.
  • Cover ALL electrical outlets.
  • Consider spring-loaded lid supports for toy chests: PREVENT a child playing inside from being trapped.
  • All child products, like powder and diaper ointment, should be kept OUT OF REACH.
  • Choose your window treatments with children in mind — the Cellular Shades pictured above feature the CORDLESS lift option.

To *Celebrate* Child Safety, CellularWindowShades.com is offering FREE Cordless Upgrades on Window Shades: that’s a savings of  up to $78 on each shade!

If you prefer the versatility of the Cordless Top Down Bottom Up lift option, our sale will save you $30 per shade.
