Ruling the Roost

Sheila at Note Songs is hosting a Roosters and Chicken party ... yard birds as she calls them.
I didn't realize I had so many roosters until I looked around my kitchen and dining area.  Roosters really do rule the roost around here!
In the pantry ...
Roosters and sunflowers go so well together.
Tin rooster sign...
On top of the kitchen hutch ...

Cookie jar even has a rooster!

Teapots ...

I recently purchased the rooster dishes that match the platter, sugar and creamer ... love them!
Another rooster platter with salt and pepper shakers.  Love the sunflowers on the checked border :)

Roosters on top of the dining room china cabinet.  My dining room connects with the kitchen ...

More salt and pepper shakers.

And finally a small rooster lamp behind a chair in the family room.  It adds a soft glow in the evenings.

Love the feather trim on the lamp.

I hope you enjoyed my rooster collection.  Can you tell I am a country girl?

Thank you Sheila for hosting the party and thank YOU for visiting!

Hugs,
Donna

Donna, you have really got some great chickens there. SO cute, and I just love your teapots. I clicked over from Shelia's party, and I'm so glad I did.

Wishing you all the best and Cockadoodledo!

Donna, even your background sets the mood for this party. Cute!
Fun to see all your roosters. Thanks for sharing. I've never seen a platter or cream and sugar to the dishes with the red checked tasseled borders.

You have a nice collection of roosters! I love the rooster platter and creamer/sugar pieces. This is a favorite pattern of mine and one day I hope to have some at my house, too. :)

Mary @ Neat and Tidy said...

I LOVE your rooster dishes! Could you share the manufacturer and where you purchased them?

Mama Pea said...

I have a few rooster things in my kitchen. I've thought about getting rid of them, because they don't really go with my new decor. I guess I should send them to you! LOL!
