Having a Rooster Party with Barb

Barb at Barb's Good Life is hosting a Rooster Party with everyone posting pictures of their Rooster collections, however many you many have.   I have several, and my kitchen is full of them.  I also have a youth chair that has chicken hens and eggs painted all over it, and I also bought our granddaughter Renee a Rooster painted high chair and mailed it to them in Louisiana.  She uses it all the time, so there are pictures of her also.
This was after they got it, and the foot rest is not attached yet.  Our granddaughter tried to pick up the fried eggs when they first started using the chair!

Renee messy face from 1st Birthday Cake and sitting in her Rooster High Chair!
There is also a picture of Renee when she was 10 months old  giving us a wave on my sidebar.

The painted youth chair, and wool hooked rug chair pads for the kitchen chairs.  Each chair is a different rooster.  I've had them for years, and they just don't wear out!

Big guy on top of the frig.

Wall border above the kitchen counter has roosters and a quilt theme.  A unique nesting rooster that I never have seen another like it.  I collect nesting hens too, so was thrilled to find this rooster several years ago.

Newest addition that was found at an antique store.  Just had to have it!

Kitchen window with plates and a canvas painted rooster on the wall.  I made the valance to match the border on the wall between the counter and cabinets.
I have quite a few more Roosters and Chickens in salt and pepper sets; some we use, and the rest are sitting on top of the bread box.  Also have rooster picture frames, and even a big rooster planter outside.
So after posting these pictures, I'm on my way to check out other bloggers that are posting their collection
Have a great time, and I'm glad you stopped to visit me.  I love comments.  After leaving me a comment, click on "Barbs Good Life at Bella Vista" to check out the many others that are posting tonight and the 6th!  Thanks, Jo

Good eye for great roosters!! The high chair is especially cute, particularly because we have a grand-daughter that would also try picking up the eggs. LOL. Thanks for posting, I enjoyed your other posts as well.

Great collection! The chairs can't be beat. Cute! Would love to find a nesting rooster. :)

That high chair is adorable, and so is that little sweetie in it. So funny that she tired to pick up the fried eggs on the tray. The youth chair is really cute too, and I like the way you have those square plates displayed over your window. laurie

Mimi said...

The chairs are cute, but my favorite is the white and blue rooster atop your fridge...he is gorgeous.

~Tonya said...

Hi Jo,

LOVE all of your Roosters! The high chair and wooden chair are my FAVORITE. I only have two roosters, they sit atop my fridge ;) Nothing too exciting. I will have to go and stop by that blog.

Have a great week.
