I'm Joining a Rooster Party!

This is a new adventure for me -- and no, I don't claim to be a rooster.  Barb at Bella Vista has invited us to post photos of our rooster decor.  The only roosters I have are a pair that currently reside on the top of my refrigerator.  I move them around as season or whim prompts me.  I'm in the mid-to-late summer phase, which means I look for fruits, vegetables, colors, etc. that fit my late-summertime mood.

If you visit Bella Vista, you'll see the many others who are joining the party, and their ideas and examples of decorating with roosters.  And you'll probably want more roosters, like I do.

Here are mine:

Annie Joy, are your roosters cookie jars, or just nice, plump, oversize roosters?

So glad you joined the party. I don't have many roosters at my house either, but ONE of mine is really something to see - - -

I like your roosters and the natural colored glazes that were used-enjoy!

Susan said...

Oh my gosh, how sweet. They remind me of the ones my grandmother had when I was a little girl. I wish I knew where they had gotten themselves.

I hope you have a happy Rooster day,

Loved your beautiful roosters! Enjoyed pecking around in your kitchen! Have a blessed day!

Annie Joy said...

Hi, Keetha,
They're just oversized roosters, but they do look like cookie jars, don't they? Just visited your blog and your "prize rooster" is wonderful! Annie

Annie Joy said...

Lynn, I love yours, too -- especially the cute pig who's trying to pass as a rooster!

Annie Joy said...

Thank you, Susan. Love all of your roosters, too, and had a wonderful time touring your collection! Annie

Sherry said...

Your roosters are very handsome sitting there on your fridge.

Nice roosters, I didn't have many either, when my daughter got married I let her have most of my collection so she could decorate her kitchen and not spend too much, next year I will shoot pic's of her kitchen and put them on my post since they came from Grandma anyway! Great Rooster party though! XOXO

Annie Joy said...

Kelly, too bad we can't stretch technology a bit further and share "virtually." Love your blog, your music, and your roosters!

Annie Joy said...

Sonny, I had such a good time visiting your roosters! I'll tell mine that they aren't the only ones looking down from the top of the coop! Annie

Donna (Timeless Settings) said...

Very pretty!


Mimi said...

Oh, the green one is handsome!
