It's a Parade of Roosters!

Cock-a-doodle do! How are you? Want you come in and join the Rooster Parade. Here are pictures of some of my roosters. The pictures really aren't that great (surely it WASN'T the photographer) so I apologize for that first. I hope you enjoy your visit to my coop.

Notice the metal rooster on the shelf of this quilt rack. My Hubby made the rack years ago.

The rooster candle holder and shade sits on a really OLD ice box. There is also the rooster picture on the wall and of course the chicken wallpaper. Actually, this wallpaper has been on my walls FOREVER. I'm ready to change the walls up but still keep the rooster/chicken theme. Any ideas????

Rooster lamp sitting on the cabinet in my kitchen. I bought this lamp on one of my "shopping adventures" in the Hill Country.
Simple little rooster holding a chalkboard that I purchased on EBay.

Another "Hill Country" purchase -- Americana rooster which hangs on the side of my cabinet.

The centerpiece on my kitchen table is made from an old plow blade with the rooster feet. It really looks better than the picture shows. BTW, that's a candle with fruit around it.

A rooster in the corner of the cabinet, a rooster picture frame, and a small rooster hanging from the cabinet knob. Also, please don't be offended by that cookbook -- it stands for Babe In Total Control of Herself -- a gift from a quilting friend who has at the big quilting bee in Heaven.

Rooster rug at the entrance to my kitchen; there are several more througout the kitchen.

My 'prim rooster/hen" sitting in the basket.

A simple metal rooster than hangs from a beam in the kitchen.

My favorite rooster -- Jim Shore -- it stands about 2-1/2 feet tall.

Here is a crooked picture of the rooster that roosts on the mantel.

A big metal rooster that sits on the floor of the kitchen.

A set of soup bowls and soup tureen (isn't that the word?).

This rooster hangs on the door that goes from the game room into the kitchen.

My rooster chandelier that hangs over my kitchen table.

These are some signs that I made "many moons ago".

A whole string of roosters that my buddy, Kathleen, gave me.

In my kitchen; my hubby made the cabinet.

Another view.

.......That's all folks! Thanks for stopping by...Now I'm off to see the rest of the parade.

I have a cousin who loves roosters as much as you. She's in very poor health now but she still loves her roosters. I've got two that I plan to send her this week - a kitchen timer and a small quilted bag. blessings, marlene

My goodness, girlfriend, you surely DO have a lot of roosters!!! I hope they don't all crow at once in the morning or they would surely jolt you out of bed BIG TIME......"cock-a-doodle-do"!!! LOL

Oh my gosh Kathy!!! You have such a WONDERFUL collection of roosters, I don't know WHAT to call my favorite! It is just TOO hard to choose! I CAN say that I LOVE your display in and on the kichen cabinet that your husband made!!!.. BEAUTIFUL!! Hope you're enjoying all the rooster festivities today, and that you have a wonderful weekend too! ~tina

I hope I'm not too late for the party. You sure have a lot of roosters. The two I like best are the one with the sign and the Jim Shore one. To avoid posting on the wrong date before you click PUBLISH POST, click on "post options" and you can put the date to whatever you want. It took me awhilr to figure that out :)

Stopping by from the rooster parade. You have quite a rooster house. Love that you and your friends have such great times.


Kathy said...

I'm here to check out all the roosters. I thought I was here before, but I may have not left a comment. Being a quilter myself, I like your Jim Shore rooster the best too!

Sarah said...

I'm sorry I'm so late arriving. It's been a busy weekend away from the computer! Love all your roosters, especially the chalk board guy and the Jim Shore with the quilt motif. I'm a beginning quilter, but have appreciated quilts and the art of quilting since I was a child. I enjoyed visiting your blog and plan to stop in again. Thanks for sharing. If you have time, stop by my place for some more rooster fun. Sarah @

I'm going to have to see if I can find more of the rooster parade! You have some really creative little roosters. I have the same chandelier in my entry, and the candle holder, and the dessert plates and mugs. So many roosters, so little time...
