It's a Rooster Party!!

Welcome to the Rooster Party hosted by Barb over at Bella Vista! For this party we're supposed to show off our rooster collection. Although mine is not a big collection YET...it's gettin' there. :) Thank you so much, Barb, for hosting this fun, fun, fun party! Click on the link above (Bella Vista) and you can see over two hundred other blogs joining in on this party. Gosh...you better not go to work because it might take you all day to go through them. Well it's a good excuse to me! :)

Okay gals, let's start! This is my most prized possession, Henrietta (yea, my rooster is a girl) :) She was in the adopt-a-rooster section at Home Goods and I just could not turn her down. :)


I mean look at her beautiful feet!

Next is my vintage rooster tin....it holds my ground coffee. I know it says flour on it but I already had a place for my flour so had to think of something else to put in it. Now when I open the tin, that distinctive, rich aroma of coffee fills the air!


I got this adorable little picture at an antique store in Silver Falls, Oregon. I really need to go back to that store. It had tons of roosters and chickens. And yep, that's real chicken wire in there. :)

Next my sweet rooster candle. I just haven't had the heart to light it yet.

And last, my rooster salt and pepper shakers. Cute aren't they?

Well that's it! That's my small and sweet rooster collection. I am reasonably sure this collection will grow just as fast as my apron collection. :)

Happy Friday all and thanks again Barb! I had tons of fun at this party!! Alright, where are the rooster margaritas?

Super cute rooster. Henrietta is a perfect name for that rooster. Much better than Larry or Steve! Happy rooster day!
