Rooster Party

I am joining Sheila for her rooster/chicken party. I have a long love affair with these feathered friends and I did a post about that here: roosters. My mom had roosters in her kitchen so I suppose it has been ingrained in me that you need a few in every kitchen.

I even have them in my china cabinet.

On pillows.

Here are some kitchen fellows watching over me as I cook.

They keep watch outside.

And even grace the garden.

Love all your chickens! You must have been collecting for a long time.

Oh goodness, I love that pillow of yours! :o)
Very cute roosters. :o) They are beautiful creatures
aren't they? You should hear them cockadoodledo-ing
in our neighborhood! :o)


Gorgeous rooses! I love them all. Love the plates and the pillows are so cute, too. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, FABBY

I guess I should have joined the party too. I have always collected the non living version! I have my Grandma's rooster pottery dishes, and many roo's in my home. And now, the live version as well.

Shelia said...

Oh, you have some wonderful Roosters! What a cute mosaic and that fabric on your pillow is darling! Thank you so much for coming to my party!
You are a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Cindy said...

Your roosters and hens are wonderful and so attractive! I love them all.
What a fun post!
Hugs, Cindy

What a great collection of roos. I especially like your shelf. It is very unique. Pillow is so cute. Don't you have black and white curtains with the same print?

Now, when the hens come home to roost, your roosters will be ecstatic!


Come in, my dear friends, and be seated, please—
Oh, all of you reds are such a big tease!
Scarlet, you creep over cheeks in a blush;
Crimson, you’re always in such a big rush!
Cherry, you’re tasty and pleasant to see;
Carmine, you utterly satisfy me!
So come in, my friends, and be seated, please—
Of all the colors, I’d rather have these!

Your roosters are so sweet. My favorite is the "guard" rooster next to the watering can. He is seriously intent!

Elaine you have a great display of roo's too! I did not know you had so many. Love the vignettes, and all the happy colors.

Kelly said...

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog earlier today. :)

I am starting to feel a little sorry for myself, everyone seems to have all of these wonderful roosters and I only have some rooster toile wallpaper in my kitchen cabinets...nothing like all of your lovely fowl. These are great, so cute! Have a cock-a-doodle-good day!

S said...

So pretty - I want your blue pillow and your red toile chair/sofa. Lovely!
