MY ROOSTER COLLECTION

     I  would like to introduce you to some of my rooster collection.  I was at Home Goods walking around and then I saw him, not that I needed another rooster, but he was calling my name take me, take me home, and of course I had to have him.  The big one to the left is a cookie jar and she is a hen.  My friend Phyllis from Around The House gave her to me for Christmas a couple years ago.  The rooster to the right I purchased my self at Home Goods.




These pictures were from my son.



My son Shaun and his wife Frances were in Hawaii at a Art Show in the hotel and saw this original picture and they gave it to me.  So I thanked them and put it away as it needed to be framed.  Well I forgot about it (shame on me).  Many years later after they had given me a few more roosters I remembered it and had it framed when I re-modeled the kitchen. It really adds to my collection.





These pretty little salt and pepper shakers are my newest addition, aren't they just the cutest.  My friend Jessie gave them to me for my Birthday this past July.


These pretty little S/P shakers were given to me by my friend Phyllis.  Isn't the salt shaker just so plump and friendly.


Aren't they just so pretty all setting there all in a row.  Collecting is fun isn't it.  I think it's all in the hunt.


This is my breakfast dishes - the roosters always make me so happy in the morning.  They are by Queen's and I found them TJ Max.


Can't you just imagine eggs, bacon and hash browns on these pretty plates along with my rooster silverware.



Just love this silverware which I purchased from Marshall's a couple years ago.


I think this rooster is one of the prettiest ones in my collection.  I purchased these at Home Goods a few years ago.  Don't you just love that store.  We have a new one going in really close to my home and I can hardly wait.  Hope they are open in time for Christmas shopping.


Just a few little greeters when you come in to my house.


The bigger rooster is from my granddaughter Kelly for my Birthday this year and there is a button you turn on and he crows.  I can count on her to give me at least one rooster for Christmas and my Birthday.  What a girl.



Well Waldo said aren't you thru yet, it's hot and your bothering my nap.  He has to be everywhere I am, getting in my way.  LOL




Poor Lili said leave me alone it's to darn hot to do anything!!!  I think I need to put this girl on a diet.

I hope you have enjoyed a few of my Yard Trotters (that's what we called them when I was little and visited my cousins).

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment because when you do I can find you ,leave a comment and follow you too..  I'm pretty new at this posting so forgive any mistakes.

  3. I love chickens and not only have many adorning the inside of my home, I have way too many clucking & crowing outside. They are so much fun to see, whether they're ceramic or real live chickens. Unfortunately for my husband, I can't seem to get enough of both types !

    You have a fine collection there and I see your family knows what you love and gifts you with even more roosters.

    Dogs, aren't they precious ? How does anyone do without a dog or two to trip over around the house ?

    1. Thanks so much for your kind comments. Yes, I do love my roosters and if I could have live ones I would. I would be so lost without my dogs. They are my best friends and follow me around wherever I am. They are such good dogs and both were rescued.
      Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.

  5. I think roosters are timeless and you have a great collection. I especially love your silverware and I have those same plates in black and cream. They are one of my favorites. Is Waldo a Springer Spaniel? He has that look about him. Even if he's not, I'm sure he's a love.

  11. I have a small chicken/rooster collection myself. It seemed when I got (real) chickens, I noticed all the cute things out there decorated with roosters or hens. I really like those dishes. I'll have to get all mine together and show them sometime.

  12. Hi Mary! I wanted to come by and thank you for visiting my guest post as Susan's, and then I got all caught up in your rooster collection! Wow, you have a ton! I love them all, especially the rooster flatware...now that was a great find! Funny how when you love something, those kind of gifts pour in! lol!

    Your pups are absolutely adorable just the way they are! :) I'm following your blog now, too!

    XO,

  13. Mary,
    You have a nice assortment of roosters. Oh yes, I love Home Goods, and go there every couple of weeks. I also love TJ Maxx and Marshall's. They are three of my favorite shops. I think the rooster with the bright RED is so pretty. I found a turquoise rooster at Home Goods and had to buy it, as I changed my kitchen color to turquoise. But I must say, after seeing your roosters, I miss my RED kitchen. I also like your roosters with the black and red polka dot. How nice of your son to give you the framed picture, Mary.

    Have a fun Labor Day weekend.

    Love,
    ~Sheri

    Cute post which brought back memories. When our family was in Kauai for Christmas, we couldn't believe how many chickens we saw everywhere.

  36. Mary, your rooster collection is charming! I, too, have a weakness for these birds, including their female counterparts! They're all just SO adorable, aren't they? No wonder so many of us want our own unique groups. Well, I have to say, I've never seen silverware stamped with these lovelies! Love your set and your whole collection!

  41. So happy that you found me, because now I have found you! I love roosters also. You have some amazing ones! I had them on the top of my cupboards for years. Recently changed it to birds. Couldn't part with all of my roosters so I am bringing them out downstairs. I will come back and visit when I have more time. Heading out of town for a week.

  42. Hi Mary,

    Your new rooster is so pretty! Isn't Home Goods wonderful? I was just at our Home Goods last night. :) I collect roosters, too, although not like I used to. I didn't put all of mine back out when we re-modeled our kitchen. I have some in our kitchen and a few in our den.

    I adore the s/p shakers given to you by your friend Phyllis -- those red and white checked kerchiefs are precious! Your breakfast setting looks so pretty. I love the yellow and white striped placemat with the red and white rooster dishes. I like those dishes because they're a nice, soft red. Your rooster flatware is great, too.

    Thanks for your visit and comments; I hope you have a wonderful week. :)

    Hugs,

    Denise

Last time I was looking at it, I was coveting that flatware, but I think I forgot to tell you how much I like it. I hope you are doing well. Our little grandson is doing great! Gaining weight and changing every day. He is such a joy to all of us. laurie
