Roosters, Roosters, Everywhere!


Good morning fellow rooster fans! 
As I'm sure you know, it's rooster party time over at Bella Vista!  Barb so loves her roosters as do so many other wonderful bloggers so if you want to see some pretty,whimsical, funky or just plain cute roosters, head on over to Barbs to see hers and all her rooster party buddies. Barbs button is on my side bar, click there to head over to the rest of the party. 
I hope you enjoy my little collection...only have a couple of new ones since last years rooster party so most of my photo's may be repeats.
If you're a sidedoor guest, you are greeted by this rooster windchime, gifted to me from my mother-in-law.  It makes such happy sounds with a gentle breeze.

I like to change out vignettes on this bench each month.  This is Julys "scene"...I know, it's August so I best get busy and get the sunflowers out!


Once you come on in, you are greeted by this spunky fella



If you look to your left instead, this funky guy will greet you


Or, to the right stands one of my favorite...probably because of his blue or maybe because I brought him home from a wonderful visit of family in Montana.


Looking up above the window you will find a couple of rooster companions...after all what is a rooster without a hen?



Moving into the kitchen to meet the rest of the clan...












Finally into the dining room. 


This guy on the bakers rack is my only new rooster since last years rooster party.  He has a hole in the back to place a battery operated tealight!  He was a Christmas gift from my sister-in-law.  (Thank you, Geri!)



That wraps it up for my rooster collection. 
Oh...wait a minute!  I gotta run take a few pics of the calendar that I picked up at the coast. I'm so excited for 2011 to be able to bring this beauty out.














Thank you so much for visiting....I hope you come back soon and as always, I very much enjoy reading your comments so please don't be shy! ;0)

  13. Hmmmm . . . where to begin.
    You have a beautiful collection! I love the very last one - but that calendar! It's like someone was thinking of your home when they created it! I really like the handsome fella on the bakers rack with the tea light inside . . . but the one in the picture with the black and white polka dots ~ he's pretty handsome too! The one on the corner shelf - to DIE for! And I'm seeing some Longaberger baskets! Love those - I have so many, but since we moved to this house, just can't put too many of them out, it's so "Tuscany-ish" here. My husband wanted to sell them at our garage sale when we moved and I looked at him like he was out of his mind. Next house . . . someday . . . .which will be cottagey, BACK OUT THEY GO!
    I am still chuckling over your analogy of the "Who done it" at my house. I never thought that maybe the Rooster saw it all and just wasn't tattling on either one of the dogs! PERFECT! Love that!
    Thanks for sharing and for visiting!

  15. thank you for the super nice comments when you came to visit today!!! oh gosh. I had a hard time finding my favorite of yours as well. But if I had to pick one, it's the one in the scale. They are all fabulous. I have a rug too and forgot to include it. as to the placemats and the light shade - I embroidered them myself on my sewing/embroidery machine. The placemats started off all white and I embroidered and then bound the edges in a color! thanks for noticing and asking ;-)

  20. Hi Vicci...

    First of all...I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your lovely home...it's gorgeous! Couldn't help but notice those beautiful red walls in your kitchen...I do believe it's the same shade that I have in my dining room. And...the gold that you have in your dining room...I have in my kitchen! So funny! I have a feeling that we like alot of the same things...for instance, I have the exact same pattern of matelasse coverlet in my bedroom! Hehe!

    Anyway...I really did enjoy your fabulous rooster collection! You have some stately fellows there! Lovely vignettes showing them each perfectly too! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home and lovely collection with us today!!!

    I also wanted to thank you for coming by and taking a peek at my frenchy studio/office! My friend, your sweet note just made my day!!! Thank you sooo much for all the warm and generous compliments...my heart is smiling...soooo BIG!!!

    Warmest wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design

  25. You have some GREAT roosters! No one else (and I've been down the ENTIRE list to this point) had a wind chime.

    I also love the whimsical ones - - - the "flat" cow with the hen and rooster on her back and the funky little rooster pulling a cart.

  29. Love your collections- especially the patriotic ones! And I just love roosters and sunflowers! You left me a comment asking where I had gotten one of my roosters- the one with the sunflower- and I actually got him at Ross about a year or so ago- it is a small cookie/treat jar of sorts- I used to keep cat treats in it- but the kids weren't quite as careful when replacing the top as I would have liked and he was getting a chip here and there- so I moved him to my bookshelf. I looked on the bottom and there is no brand or anything. Sorry I couldn't be of more help! Thanks for the comment you left! Have a great day!!!
