Three or More Tuesday - Roosters & Chickens


Thanks to Tam @ The Gypsy's Corner for hosting the fun event. Be sure to visit her blog to see all the wonderful three or more that everyone is sharing. You'll have a real treat.

I never think of myself as a "Rooster & Chicken" collector, but as I looked around my kitchen I found that I do have a few. Guess I really am a collector. lol


Starting with the top of the kitchen cabinets is a little whimsical rooster planter.


Next are two wood carved roosters.


This one is a Pennsylvania Dutch antique primitive carved wood rooster. Love this one a bunch.


A small white ceramic rooster sitting on one of my antique scales.


Two more sitting on the kitchen counter. A little blue and white rooster pitcher and my big fat white one that always makes me think he has his head thrown back and is laughing.

For my final "Rooster and Chicken" reveal, I've done a little tablescape using some of my favorite ones.


I am using my wonderful speckled rooster and the lovely little rooster planter filled with ivy as the centerpiece. I found both of these at Ross on sale. I love them and they usually sit on my island in the kitchen.


For the tablesetting I am featuring my "chicken" plates as my grandchildren call them. lol Each one is different and they are such a valued treasure. They were a gift from my daughter over 25 yrs. ago.


I love the wonderful red border on these plates and the colors in the "chickens" are fabulous.


Boy are they plump.


Proud and stately.


They're proud too.


The back of the plate says the haldon group - devonshire - mcmixxix


A final view of each place setting. I've used the wicker placemats with a red tablecloth, clear glass goblets, cups and saucers with fruit border, white napkins and Rogers silverware.


Thanks for dropping by. I really enjoy your visits and look forward to seeing you again soon.

  14. Your "chicken" plates are so beautiful! So far, yours and the "empty nester" blog's chicken plates are my favorite and would love to find some- soon! I love them!

    I want them so bad... I think I'll have to drag dh over to HomeGoods and see if we can find some. I only need six, that's all. Man, I've got it bad, huh? ;-)

  18. I also have rooster roosting everywhere in my home. I have the one pot that your plant is in but mine has kitchen utensils in it.
    I also have rooster plates but mine are square. I got them at what we in Canada call Home Sense but it is called TJ Maxx in the US. I am missing one of the dinner plates as they only had 5 and I couldn't find them any where else.

  20. Marty, isn't it funny how we don't think we have a collection until someone points it out and then we realize Oh, I do collect!!! Your Roosters give your home a warmth and whimsy. I love the one on the scale and the black and white is a favorite of mine. Great Tablescape using the roosters. You are getting more and more clever.It is fun to see what you will come up with next. Love ya Kathysue
