It's A "Show Us Your Roosters Party"

Cock-a-doodle-doo & Hello everyone!
I am joining all the participants at Bella Vista for Barb's "Show Us Your Roosters Party." Seems there are a lot of bloggers out there who love this cocky morning greeter! I know I do. I have a few around my home and here they are....
It is hard to tell, but this little rooster is in a shadow box which hangs by my kitchen sink.
A rooster plate....
Whoops, this is not a rooster, but she is part of the family! She is made of metal as are all my feathered barnyard friends and she just adds a hint of country charm to the kitchen window.

This rooster and chicken sit on top of my microwave. I found these at Homestead, one of my favourite stores.

A rooster basket of croissants.This is my favourite fella and he knows it! This is where he usually sits but he does get moved around from time to time. He is very heavy and handsome too.
He was a rusty brown when I got him and I took a can of paint and sprayed him white. He looks so much better now. Roosters are very vain creatures, aren't they? He knows he's looking good!Here he is again, showing his other side. He just loves getting his picture taken! He's a very conceited rooster but he really can't help it; he is quite handsome! Thank you Barb for hosting this fun party! My rooster thanks you too!Thanks for joining me and I hope you will take a peek at all the other participants by clicking on the link All the participants are listed on Barb's sidebar. Have a wonderful day everyone!

  7. Hi Sandi,
    Your white rooster is very handsome but it is the pretty teapot that steals the show!


  8. Sandi I love your white roosters. In all of my collection I don't have a white one. I think I might have to correct

  9. Hi Sandi,

  20. Hi fellow party goer, Great rooster collection!, Have a sweet weekend!x

  21. Well, good about SLOW..duh...I never even THOUGHT of painting my roosters..and I am really wanting a white one. Gosh!! Thanks for the tip and I adore every one of your roosters.

  22. Hi Sandi,
    Love your white rooster and a very unusual and pretty plate, you are right, roosters are very vain and love to strut their stuff, You should see some of ours here on the farm, and the competition to see who can crow the loudest is unbelievable.
    Thanks for sharing.

  23. I love the combination of the white rooster with the red flowers and red and white china!Very nice!:)

  24. Hello Sandi, you have some fantastic frenchy roosters yourself! They are so pretty with all the red toile and your other accents.

  25. such a lovely rooster party!! this is fun!! All of these make me think I need more roosters in my house. Thanks for sharing all of yours.

  29. Hi Sandi, your rooster is definitely very fine as a white rooster and I know he has a whole new life with his new lovely color. Brown is so mundane. Cute post Sandi. I know you had fun posting it. Big smile here. I love the plate too.
