Rooster

I love roosters.  They are soooo country French.  Here are some of the roosters I have in my home.

First, a rooster finial on top of a table lamp.


Next, an embroidered rooster pillow on a living room chair.


 This rooster fabric covers my kitchen chairs.



A rooster lamp.


My favorite rooster sitting on my dining room hutch.
A rooster, hen and chicks sitting on a vintage French wine barrel lid turned into a lazy susan, in my kitchen.
A white rooster teapot on my cookbook shelf.
Some rooster paintings, by Donna, on a wall in my kitchen.
A pair of rooster on my kitchen table.


An outdoor rooster, waiting for spring. 
I have purchased some of my roosters, and some were gifts.  I haven't showed all of them to you.  Do you think I have a problem? :-)
Do you have roosters?

p.s.  don't forget to take part in the poll on the top right side of the blog.  Only a couple more days left to participate!

Welcome Home,
Penny

Penny, know you don't have a problem because if you do then I have a major one. I have quite a collection of roosters. I love them, too. I love your rooster lamp. Different than some I have seen.

I adore your roosters! In fact, I love to see anything in your house. I love that chair of yours too.

Sweet new friend...if you have a problem, then I must be totally gone because I love roosters and chickens and have lost count! My grand daughters were counting the other day and in was so high, you would die laughing! I have them in nearly every room and this is a pretty big house. Thats what happens when you get raised on a farm..it stays with you always! :D

Michelle said...

Penny, I too have roosters in my home. In Sicily, they are actually thought to be good luck!! Hubby and I were stationed there for three years. Your home is beautiful!!! Thank you for sharing...Michelle

Penny, I have a flock of chickens, too, but there are some hens, too! LOL!

Love your roosters. When that teapot comes up missing, you won't have to look far. ;-)

XO,

Hi Penny! I love your roosters! Problem? What problem. I believe the more roosters the merrier. I have quite a large collection of the yard birds too! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Vee said...

No, not at all. I have one rooster. A rooster button.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I have a hen...that I bought when we were shopping together! Your roosters are perfect for your beautiful home! Enjoy! ♥

Pondside said...

Hmmmmmmmmm - maybe one or two, so 'no' I don't think you have a problem!

mishebe said...

Penny, I have roosters in my home too. I love them!!! I don't have that many, but the ones I have are ceramic. All of yours are beautiful! Love & blessings from NC!

Sarah said...

Penny, there many roosters living here too. I find them totally charming and definitely lend a French influence. So show us more.
I have the same little rooster finial, but I haven't used him on a lamp. He just sits among some little treasures in a bookshelf. I adore that white rooster teapot. Can you tell me more about it? Do you think it is still available?

Debbie V. said...

Penny,

I tell everyone that I don't collect roosters but I'm in denial! In fact, I just bought some rooster plates today! :)

Merrie said...

This right here...this is why I love blogland so much. My IRL friends make fun of rooster decor. But me? I have no less than 5 just in my kitchen...maybe more.
I heart roosters, I heart your blog, and really love that rooster finial on top of that lamp- it's great!

Beverly said...

No, definitely not. You do not have a problem. Besides, if you have a problem, that means there are quite a few of us right there with you.

I actually saw a rooster somewhere the other day, and it made me think of you.

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh yes, I love them too. I have the black version of your rooster toile on my kitchen curtains, and vintage rooster figurines spread thoughout the kitchen and dining room!

Beverly said...

Love roosters. Yours are perfect. Love the light airy feeling of your home.

Stacey said...

Not a problem! I wonderful obsession that I share with you. :)

You are not alone in your love of roosters! I have no idea how many roosters I have in my home. I started out with just decorating my kitchen with roosters, but they have moved into several rooms of my home. My family all knows that I like roosters, so you can guess what I receive lots of whenever they give me a gift. One of my nieces told me that I must have 100 roosters. You can never have too many roosters!

dobco said...

My kitchen use to be full of chickens and roosters. Over the years I aquired quite a collection. I have almost gotten rid of all of them with only a few of my very favorites. Funny how our decorating changes over the years!

Karen said...

Roosters are starting to grow on me. I only have one thing rooster in my house... a photo on my kitchen wall. I may just have to start collecting.

Screaming Meme said...

I love the roosters, Penny! Hi, remember me? Screaming Meme?...I am back in blogland!!! I want to personally invite you back over to Screaming Meme...Hope to see you soon! Meme

Bella said...

I just love your roosters, particularly the needlepoint pillow and the lamp. And the rooster toile. :) One of my best friends collects roosters, too.

Donna said...

Love all your roosters, Penny, especially that pillow!
Thank you for mentioning me and showing the paintings. (I have a really nice one in mind for your next one.) I'm starting it right away.

You can't have too many roosters! Yours are beautiful.

Hugs,
Donna

Angie said...

LOOOVE them all and want them! I had told myself I wasn't going to buy anymore rooster stuff, but I can't help myself!

KarenHarveyCox said...

Just stopped back to say those rooster paintings that Donna painted are gorgeous!
Karen

KarenHarveyCox said...

Penny, I love roosters too. I have them on the kitchen rug near my kitchen island. I have them on my wing chair and back of my love seat...the same fabric you have but in yellow and blue. I have a great big ceramic rooster in my kitchen overseeing my cooking. My favorite rooster though is the one on an Antique print that I often use for creating hot air balloons.

Rooster Love...hmmm sounds like a great text for a pillow, don't you think.

Karen

P.S. Don't forget Tea Party Tuesday at Rhondi's.

Dena said...

Ooooh Penny, I am swooning over here. That embroidered pillow is so adorable! You know I share your love for roosters :)

Hugs,
Dena

I love all of your roosters.
The only rooster that I ever had was a real one …
This was many years ago…
He was Japanese silky and he thought that he was the king
of the neighborhood…

Hi Penny
I love love all your roosters, especially the black and white ones. We are having snow here but I think it is too mild for it to amount to anything.

I only have my one white rooster in the kitchen - often tempted to buy more BUT don't need another collection of anything!!

Love your lamp rooster - and the bright pillow.

WendyBee said...

Oh, Penny, I love your roosters! Have you seen Mary Corbet's needlework masterpiece? A crewel rooster. She worked on him in Jan. and Feb. over at Needlenthread.com. Worth a look if you are so inclined!
