I think the roosters have exploded!

 I've revisited some of my posts to see just how many of the roosters in the house have made their public debut. I'm surprised that they are not all here.. I do have a few more than this, but I'll save them for another time...
A tree top - a silver napkin ring.


The kitchen christmas tree.  Enlarge the picture and you'll see another rooster towards the top beneath the wine cork ornamament.


 Embroidered roosters on placemats.


 
 Perfect for a Breakfast table.



 Monsier Le Coq to bid you good morning...






 Fitz and Floyd roosters under a chicken wire cloche.


 Rooster plates, centerpiece and napkin rings combine with black and white buffalo check and red for a very graphic table setting.








 A rooster plate on display in the kitchen. A treasured gift from my daughter in law.


 I think you've seen this one before. But not the embroidered rooster on the tea cozy!


 And a rooster lamp in front of the fowl painting. There is a rooster on the hay pile on the right in the picture too!


 A rooster bedecked antique egg warmer.




 My dear nephew drilled the hole in the back of the wine bottle so that I could electrify this gorgeous bottle.


 Covered a craft lampshade with a gingham, embellished with a blue trim and then added an embroidered band with what else??? another rooster.




Glad you came by for a visit. And although there are a lot of roosters in this post.. they aren't out all the time at home.. I think. Maybe that isn't totally true. :-)...

I'm connecting with the rooster party at Bella Vista.. be sure to check out the rooster party happening there on Friday. There are so many great decorating ideas!!

I can tell that you really love your roosters! I love the tablescape with the blue quilt as a tablecloth, and also the one with the black and white dishes. This post was fun!

Where did you find those embroidered placemats and the lamp trim? Oh-ok--I'm going to go with Monsier Le Coq...he's quite awesome! LOVE your blog so am off to put it "on my list". Thanks for sharing.

I've been visiting and have seen red rooster dishes which I love but now I'm torn! Those black and white ones are just something else! Love the vintage egg thingey too. Thanks for sharing.

I like both of your tablesettings with the roosters. It would be great fun to have an outdoor party with all your decor! I really enjoyed my visit to see all your birds. I do like the idea of using Roosters on the Christmas tree too!

Theresa said...

Gorgeous rooster collection! OMG those placemats and lampshade are over-the-top beautiful! Have a blessed day my friend!

Susan said...

Oh my goodness. I'm fit to be tied with rooster envy. How wonderful your collection is. I love the black and white rooster plates and the embroidered place mats and your roosters under the chicken wire and the embroidered gingham rooster lamp. My goodness I feel the rooster shopping bug biting me! I think I'll go garage sale-ing this morning and see what I may just turn up.

Happy rooster party weekend,
Susan

I don't know where to begin because I love it all. Your placemats are gorgeous with all the colors and stitchery. I also love the rooster pitcher that sits on your lovely table, that my friend is so pretty. Thankyou so much for letting me into your rooster world. I think I will start looking for some rooster ornies, what a great idea, Char

I LOVE those rooster napkin rings! So cute!!! The black, red, & white display is so eye-catching as is the more colorful one with the blue base. I have a friend who collects roosters, and I think it's a really fun idea! Beautiful tables!
