Rooster Party!

Welcome Rooster Lovers!

I am just so excited to finally be on top things in my life
so I could to join
and her Rooster Party!

Please be sure to visit Barb and check out
her side bar for other
participants.

I haven't always collected Roosters.
In fact, its only been in the last 5-7 years that I have
incorporated them into my English Country
Style Kitchen and Living Family Room.

I also was very careful and didn't want to end up with just
figurines,  I wanted to find unique Rooster Pieces
that I could display and use in many ways.
So I hope you will enjoy the many vinettes I
have created around my home
that include Roosters.

Let's Get started in my Kitchen area first.
I have a deep window area and have always LOVED
to use this area to stage my collections.
So as you can see, I have many differing rooster that
help me enjoy those mundane chores!
This large ROOSTER Platter is a Marshall's find!
Gotta love that Marshalls!
This plate below has to be my all time favorite!  There's
just something about the rich colors that make me...ahhhh!
As you can see, you must look all around this room to
see how I have used Roosters...
Look up on top of my fridge, even it has roosters.

And before I forget! We mustn't forget to look down.
I couldn't believe that I could find rugs that fit into my rooms
color and rooster scheme!
Okay, so let move on to another area.
Welcome...wont you have a seat at my pretty table full of...
Rooster goodies.  The table cloth compliments the sweet
plates that I recently found at my FAVORITE thrift store.
Got 6 of these plates for a $1 each!
Coasters that have roosters too!
Walls are next...

The carmel roosters are salt/pepper shakers.
A good friend gave me this Utensil Jar...yummy colors!
These 2 roosters nestle by my coffee makers.
Now we have arrived at my kitchen desk center...
where I have used a planter for greens...and do you see
the tiny Rose Tea Rooster?
I shared earlier this week a teapot Lamp...well
it rests upon a neat Rooster box that was given to me.
Then if I look over to my right, from my desk,
I have created this sweet vinette...a ceramic serving piece
and large rooster teapot.
Then above I have hung a tray and ceramic
pie plate above the shelf.

Here's another gift..a sweet small table cloth
with an embroidered hen and chicks.
Then we can move over to the few vinettes in my
family room.
This  lil rooster planter holds our remotes!
Then, the top of our entertainment center has this sweet
vinette...that's a lil suitcase like container...and wood rooster.


Then my last room that has touches of Roosters I'd like to
share is my
Laundry/Mud room.

On top of my Washer/Dryer is this sweet vinette.

This is actually a picture that I made using...decals!
And then I have hung a few of my rooster plates around
this room as well.

Thanks so much for visiting with me!
I certainly enjoyed sharing my home with...
can't wait to come and visit all of you there
who enjoy roosters too!

Lorena, I didn't realize what a big collection of roosters you have! Love them all and all the sweet ways you display them all. It would be fun to do dishes at your decorated sink!! Love that you used a decal for the print frame, too! I would so love to see my shade go to you ~ I'm sure we can work something out, since you were the first that mentioned it, you will get first chance at it!

Love you,

Oh my- what a beautiful collection!
Your first platter goes with my yellow rooster dishes. I found them at a garage sale earlier this summer. The woman said her daughter had "donated" them. I may have to look for more pieces.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful collection.

Karen said...

Holy smokes, I could look at your Roosters all day. I love the vignette that keeps you company while you do the dishes! Perfect! And those 2 plates in the stands - you are right! They just kind of calm you while looking at them. Love the guy to the right of the sink. . . well the white one is looking pretty handsome too!
What a fun post! And a fun party! Barb does it good!
thanks for sharing and for your sweet comments.
Have a great weekend!
