It's A Rooster Party.......

WooHoo what fun it is going to be!! Thank you Barb from Bella Vista for hosting this fun event! I don't have many yet, but love the ones I have. I tried my hand at a chalkboard drawing....not tooooooo bad.....lol
This big guy is out in the yard by my bird bath. I got him on sale a few weekends ago.
This pillow is one I bought from Ramona and look at the gold fabric. It has roosters all over it. Right now it is on my entryway bench and I absolutely love it!

A rooster tassel hanging in the kitchen.

This tin trio lives on top of an armoire used as an extra pantry in my kitchen.

Love my rooster lamp. It lights up a dark little corner by the fridge.

Last, but not least is my iron doorstop. When he isn't holding the door open, he usually frolics with the tin roosters.
Hope you enjoyed my roosters and I can't wait to come and see yours! Have a great weekend.

Hi Darlene. You do have great roosters. The pillow that Ramona made is so sweet. I didn't notice the roosters until you said so. I also love the rooster out in your yard. I need one of those.

Sue said...

Hi Darlene, What cute metal roosters you have on top of your cupboard. I like the yard display rooster, too. How fun to show off all of our barnyard feathered friends, isn't it? Glad you stopped by.

Hi Darlene, boy I am late commenting. I don't want to miss a thing though. I do love your roosters. The tin one outside is very cute. I like the hanging tassel one and the ones on the top of your armoire. The pillow is so pretty and a rooster pattern is divine. The iron doorstop is really fun loving. You can see it in his eyes.. BIG smile here.

Hugs...Jeanne

I love your roosters!

Kitty Scraps said...

Good Morning Miz Darlene,
You are so funny! Of course we're still friends ~ afterall I wasn't a Twilight fan when you first mentioned it and because of your recommendation and enthusiasm I purchased the movie instead of renting it and guess what? I loved it! I've watched it atleast 5 times since... If you do get the book from the library besure to let me know cause I'll read it along with you *smiles* If you opt to watch the movie first or instead of reading the book then I suggest the A&E one with Colin Firth because it more closely follows the book than the latest version.
