It's a Rooster party!!!

Oh my!!!! I'm late to the rooster party. My rooster didn't cockadoodledoo this morning. So I over slept!!!

Truth be told, I am the queen of procrastination & I didn't take my photos till late last night. Then as I was trying to upload them to my computer the battery died. So I had to charge the camera battery overnight so I could finish. Right now I am running late to work as I wanted to get these posted before I left. Cause heck, it's already almost 11:00am on the east coast.

So without further interruptions, here are my roosters. I do have a disclaimer though. No cleaning was done prior to taking my photos. We have a lot of pet spiders in my house so if you see any spider webs, it's Charlotte's (as in the spider) fault.

This rooster is on top of my kitchen cabinets. I got it from an antique store for less than $5bucks a few years back.

This rooster cookie jar came from Burlington Coat Factory years ago. The metal barn box came from the thrift store for 99 cents. Top of kitchen cabinets.
This rooster came from trade show along with the chicken wire basket. This sits on top of my kitchen cabinets.

These salt & pepper shakers you will see later in my tablescape. Can't remember where I got them. This is also on top of my kitchen cabinets.

The last display on top of my kitchen cabinets. The rooster on the left came from a dollar store. The rooster crock I got at some craft mall & the rooster on the right came from a trade show.
I bought this rooster bucket at a craft show years back. It is on the side of one of my kitchen cabinets.

I love this plate on my kitchen wall. I got it from Welcome Home store years ago. Did you see the rooster?

This is really not a rooster but a chicken. I got this sign on clearance at Joann Fabric a couple of months ago. I have it hanging on the side of my fridge.

I have a rooster rug under the table in my kitchen/family room. I didn't take a photo of the table or the entire rug, as I didn't vacuum & the table was covered with crap, I mean, stuff. We really don't eat at our tables. I just pile all my stuff there until I do something with it.

The rooster lamp is on my china hutch in my family room. I got it from Welcome Home store years ago.

This rooster pitcher came from Marshall's earlier in the year.

Now I will show you my rooster tablescape. Because I am such a procrastinator I didn't get photos posted for Tablescape Thursday. I'll probably post all the photos for that next week. But don't hold your breath.

This is my newest rooster from Joann Fabric. I got it on clearance.

Did you recognize my salt & pepper shakers from on the top of my kitchen cabinets? I did clean them up a bit for their debut in my tablescape.

My Waverly rooster napkins. I also have 2 table runners that match. But I didn't use them for this tablescape.

And the star of my tablescape are my new rooster plates from Oh, I guess these are my newest roosters. I lied before. Sorry!!! Don't you just love them? I love everything about these plates. These are officially my favorite roosters right now.

Lots of roosters on this table.

Another set of salt & pepper shakers. These match my rooster cookie jar. Must have come from the same place then.

And one final look at my rooster tablescape.

Well I hope that you have enjoyed looking at all my roosters. I know I have more hidden away, but since I procrastinated so long in making this post & I have already overloaded you enough, I will spare you the rest.

Be sure to visit Barb over at Bella Vista as she is the one hosting this shin dig. You'll find links to lots of rooster lovers. But before you go, be sure to leave me a comment & let me know which rooster is your favorite.

  8. Hi Kim,

    I don't think you showed up late at all, I think some of us were just a little early!

    You have a great collection of roosters!
    Hmmm... my favorite would have to be the frenchy sweet rooster dishes! followed by the rooster from Joann's!
    Your tablesetting looks GREAT too!

    Enjoy the party!

  10. Better late than never!!!
    You have lots or gorgeous roosters.I also enjoyed enlarging the photos and seeing all your other pretties in the photos.
    The new target dishes are so cute. Perfect table setting. I hope you are serving beef! Rhonda

  11. Well, your roosters sure are the cock of the walk! Now what is this "procrastination" thing? You know I call it like I see it. What's causing you to feel like you must put off things till the last moment? Are you worn out and overworked? That I can understand certainly, since I have solitude and peace aplenty. You mention this a lot, though, so I thought I'd call ya on it! Almost every time I see you though, I think of those four green beans!!!

  12. I love love love the table setting, especially the place mats

  27. Kim,
    Thanks for coming by and inviting me to visit.
    I have been so busy lately, i have not had time to make the rounds much.

    I'm glad you are inspired to make the beach goody in my pics. I am actually thinking of doing a mini tutorial on it. It is so very fun.
    You could do the frame trya, or hte shadow box.

    Love the rooster that looks like cast iron.
