Rooster Party Time


Yea!!! It's time for our second Rooster Party. Thanks to Barb @ Bella Vista for hosting this fun meme. Be sure to visit her and see all the fun and fanciful roosters we all collect.


As part of my blue and white collection I found a couple of whimsical little roosters. The first is the little rooster pitcher.


The next one came from Home Goods, doesn't he have a regal pose. I love the cut out design on his body.


My wonderful rooster cloche that was a present from my son. LOVE this piece. The little wire chicken isn't a rooster, but precious to me as it was a gift from my children when they were really small.


My favorite dishes of all. These four rooster plates were a gift from my daughter about 25 yrs. ago.








A view of my breakfast room wall, and of course it had to have a rooster too.


A cute one on a pedestal.


My rooster planter that I found at GW.


A speckled rooster and chicks that I found at Ross yrs. ago.


My big white one always makes me think he is laughing and the little one looks kind of stuckup. lol


A couple of rooster prints I have hanging on the wall in the kitchen.


One of my all time favorites. A handcarved rooster that I found in an antique shop in Fredricksburg, Tx. about 30 yrs. ago.


These are wood carved too, not old, but I liked them.


Even a funny whimsical little rooster on a planter.


A tole rooster tray that I won on Ebay hangs above the pantry door.


I guess I have to confess that I am definitely a rooster nut. Thanks so much for stopping by. I always appreciate and look forward to your visits.

  28. Miss Marty!I think we just had the PERFECT time together! Missed Cindy BIG-time, but golly I had a great time with you and CK.
    I am loving your roosters. Especially the wooden pair up high in the kitchen. He's kind of like the King Rooster, taking care of his brood from high above everyone and everything! And the 2 pictures are just darling, as are your DISHES! On my next visit - I want to see where you store all of these fancy dishes of yours!
    Loved this. Love Miss Barb for hosting it again! Too fun!
    HAGD! Big hugs from the "It's 54 degrees this morning, wonder what it's like in Phoenix" gal in So Cal. :) (sorry - I just had to let you know that!)
    Love ya! Karen

  41. I enjoyed my visit today when I came by to check out your roosters. I love the unique blue and white ones! I am sure I have a wire basket hen, but I think I took her to school as an example of wire sculpture. I'll have to round it up and bring it home for my kitchen! Thank you for the inspiring photos.
