A Rooster Party! Now That's Something To Chirp About

Welcome to roosters gone wild in my home...for now, we'll just call it a party! They truly rule the roost in my ol' decorating heart. Don't you think they are the friendliest of the birds you can decorate with? They just make me want to bake a pie, crack an egg and fold some sheets...yep, they are a bird that is gonna make ya happy.


Thank you to Barb from the wonderful Bella Vista blog for hosting this fun~er than fun Rooster Party...she said ~ show us your roosters...and I am happy to oblige and then some.

The only thing I love as much as the shape of a house...is the image of a rooster...


Rooster pillows fill this home...and buckwheat hulls fill this rooster pillow...

They are everywhere...even on a tea pot...

Yes....everywhere...ring~a~ling!

My love affair with these fine feathered friends is quite extreme...

Even this pincushion was not complete without a rooster button...

If you read my blog...then you know this fellow and I are sewn together at the hip...
Love, love this guy...and every rooster needs a red gingham bow...right?

At attention on the front porch...

They look like they are singing high on this shelf...

More rooster pillow obsession...
Roosters and handwriting...does it get any better than that...

A swell grouping...

Someones got to tend to the eggs...

Intense conversation...

More egg tending by a boy chicken...


Thank you for spending a bit of this fun party in my neck of the blog~land.

Barb...thank you for hosting this rooster~a~rama of a party!

Smiles ~ Ramona

Ramona, this was the cutest darned post! I loved it! Seems every time I read a Rooster post I am reminded of a Rooster I missed...like the one out by MY front door! :)
What are your pillows stuffed with? Wow..I would be running around like a chicken with her head cut off looking at all the pretties at your home!
I LOVED your Roosters...especially liked the "intense conversation!" :)

They can be regal or whimsical, either way they delight my soul! You have a wonderful group living in your home. Thank you for sharing. It's fun to see so many different roosters as I work my way through all the party list. It may take me all weekend, but this is FUN.

My,my my! Love all your roosters!!!! They surely do abound! Love it!

and love how you have them working around here...like keeping company cosy and comfy (pillow roosters are awesome!) and watching the eggs when the hens are out shopping...guarding the front porch...ringing in the company...um...simply being grand!

Blessings & Aloha!

I dont think I'll make it to all the parties! I tried to start from the bottom and then some in the middle and now some from the top! I'm so glad I made it to yours!
