Rah, Rah, Rooster Party!

I am delighted to be joining Barb and many others over at Bella Vista Rooster Party. I spent some time admiring her extensive collection, they are really delightful.  My Roosters are both handsome and hardworking. We don't have a large collection of them, but we have them in several different forms and functions.

My dear husband is actually more inclined to collect roosters than I am, so several years ago I bought him this cookie jar and salt and pepper shaker set for his birthday. You can tell we use the shakers regularly, as they're getting rather chipped. But they still take their proud place on our dinner table, right along with the Rooster placemats dear hubby picked out at JCPenney's some years back. One of these days he might let me actually switch them out occasionally.

We have had this cheery trio of strutting fellows above my computer desk for a long while.  Don't they look  like they're getting ready for a crowing contest?


A trip last week to a new favorite thrift store netted me this more modern take on the rooster theme for the bargain price of $2. (Sorry about the glare, it's hung under my kitchen cabinet and I had to use the flash.)

There are a few more rooster fun and functional items I won't bother adding here, including the towel, potholders and trivets in various corners of the kitchen. But one item I caught at the very last minute and wanted to share, one of the hardest working Roosters in the room. Give him some love, he gets walked on all day long and still looks good.

Hope you enjoyed visiting some of our Roosters in Residence. I'll catch you all later and check out all the other fine fowls in your homes.

I love all of your roosters but my fave is the one over your computer desk:) Love it and they actually do look like they are getting ready for a crowing contest! Have a blessed day!

How sweet that your hubby likes roosters! I think my favorite is the strutting roosters. Thanks for visiting my blog....I agree that a frame with corkboard would work for the jewelry organizer. I had thought about doing that before I remembered that I had that display case. Take care, Marlee.
