Show us Your Roosters



Yeah, what a fun party. Thanks to Barb @ Bella Vista for hosting this fun party. I know we all love our roosters and I can't wait to see all of yours on display. Be sure to check out her blog for a list of all the participants.


I guess I really had a few more roosters than I thought. Just taking a look at my kitchen you see quite a few on display.


Starting with the top of the cabinets, I have a really whimsical little planter. I love the fun and cheery colors and the check border.


Then I have two wood roosters. I found these guys quite a few years ago in a thrift store. They weren't old, but I thought they were cute.


This one is my all time favorite. It is very old. I found it in an antique shop in Fredricksburg, Texas. It is a primitive piece from Pennsylvania. I love the warm patina the wood has.


I've had these two rooster prints for many, many years and still love them.






These are my newest rooster friends. I love the big fat one, he always makes me think he's laughing, and the little one has such a regal pose you can tell he thinks he's special.


This of course is not a rooster, but this little wire chicken was a gift from one of my children many, many years ago and is so special to me.


This of course is the wonderful rooster cloche that my son recently gave to me when we were having our first "Cloche Party". I just love it, such a precious gift.


My speckled rooster with the baby chick at his feet commands center stage just about anywhere I put him. I found him at Ross a few years back.


This cute little white rooster perched on top of the sphere is a recent find at Ross. I also found the cute little bird that sits next to him at the same time. I think they're really good friends.


My cute little blue and white rooster pitcher is such a sweet addition to my blue and white collection. This little guy came from Marshalls.


I use the shelves on the sides of the entertainment center to display a lot of my dishes since it's part of the kitchen/familyroom combination. This picture shows my wonderful rooster and chicken plates that my daughter gave me 25 yrs. ago. They are very special treasures.






So, in case it didn't already show, I guess I am a professed rooster collector. lol They are all so fun and each one has their own personality and character. Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget the "Fall Cloche Party" on Sept. 11th.

  1. Oh Marty, I had to laugh when I read the beginning of this post -- that you have more roosters than you thought! And then I looked at the kitchen -- roosters everywhere! Hahaha.... yes, you do have a lot and they are fantastic.
    But I think they may believe that you are taking them for granted. . . you better show them their glamour shots on the blog!

  3. Hi Marty! I love love your kitchen! Every single nook is amazing! Love all your roosters, girl! I especially love the rooster you bought in Fredericksburg! Isn't that little town awesome?! I love stopping by there when we are going to San Antonio or Houston. :)
    Oh Marty. I have no idea if the paint will withstand heat when we have the fireplace on? I'll read the label on the can to make sure it will. I hope it does! I'm ready to start! I bought 6 cans *shocking* and I plan on painting everything that is brass. hee hee I hope you make a post about everything you painted oil rubbed bronze. :) Take care.
    Blessings,
    Sandra

  68. Marty,
    You have some fabulous roosters there. I think I like the speckled rooster the best. But I really like the white ones as well. I missed out on getting the rooster on the sphere. I saw one at Ross & passed on it. When I decided I really wanted it, it was gone & I haven't seen any since then. Oh well, I guess it wasn't meant to be. You do a fantastic job on your vignettes. Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment. I'm looking forward to your cloche party. Hopefully I will get my fall stuff down from the attic in time to participate. But I can be such a procrastinator. Have a great day!

  95. Hi Marty! Is the cloche party Sept. 11 or 18? I am confused. I read 2 different dates. I am going to really hustle here cause I am going to be out of town from 9-4 to 9-12. I hope I can prepare something before I leave but I am so busy doing other stuff too. Aaaah! Never a dull moment! I hope you are having a good weekend....Christine

    Blessings & Aloha!

    (Oh how I hope I can pull it together for your cloch party! I am just running around like a chicken with its head cut off...trying to get to the rest of the parties... I thought to start from the bottom, but then jumped some in the middle and now trying to do some from the top!)
