~Roosters in my little farm house~

Sheila
at note songs
is having a party,
It is a rooster party....

I did a post on my little roosters last summer
so I am being lazy and re-posting this one
but adding a few new ones from this year

so let's take a look around my
little farm house
I hope to be able to add this guy to my chimney this year

see wouldn't he be cute right here...
 I had NO clue I had so many until
I started taking their pictures....
I didn't  feel I was on rooster overload
but now maybe I do....
hummm what do you think?

Our little farm house...

Welcome
come in,
As you enter you see...roosters


The message board for the Hubs...
The light switch to the mud room/kitchen

Another note board

The powder room has my pie safe

 
oops these are hens



Ok now for the kitchen we shall take a closer look....




The top of the recipe file is all roosters

The first piece of art work I got for the kitchen



A night lite that I use every night
Even the paper towel holder..but the little gal..
my Mom carved is so sweet

The coffee spoon too




Every year I have a Warren Kimble calender
and sure enough he always has a rooster


The Hubs got the salt & pepper shaker because
they were the ones he had as a child..

Got these at a flea market, don't know what to do with them...

Love these TV trays....we've even
had the occasion to use them

Bought these at Warren Kimble's studio in Brandon, Vermont
They shipped them home..love, love, love these stools

Ok now I am starting to get embarressed..too many
thought I was done, then I found more...

See the little fly swatter...

Oh almost forgot the seat cushions


got these last fall

added these new plates to the holder this year
a gift from a very talented friend

an aubusson off ebay


I really do use this to call the Hubs in for dinner


Ok this is really crazy
 this rooster infatuation...
but I've had some of these 10 years now
and still love em all
I don't think poultry will ever be out of style!
Thanks Sheila for hosting
this fun

  6. Kathy, you have two homes? I have found so many bloggers with two homes. Just amazing. I would love to have another one to fix up. You do have a lot of roosters and I do too. I can't wait till I get some sun so I can start getting my rooster pics taken for the rooster party Friday. I have tons of roosters. Have a super day working outside and getting it all pretty.

  9. Such a cute house and so many darling roosters! I'm afraid the REST of the rooster gang won't find this post because it isn't at the top of your blog - - - maybe put a tiny post up there with a link to this so others will find it?

  14. Your roosters are all just so cute. I don't think there could be a rooster overload, but having said that, I have more than I showcased. I begin to look around after my post, and discovered I had left some of my friends out of the party. I promised they could attend next year. Love your show, Char

  16. Yes, yes Kathy, I believe you are on Rooster overload. ;-) Great collection. I love the big guy in your kitchen window. You do have a very nice collection going there. And you have a lovely homestead.

    Hope you're having a very lovely week,
    Susan

  19. HI Kathy! Oh, my goodness, I think you win hands down for so many Roos and Chicks! :) I love them all! Your home is so pretty and I adore your kitchen! :)
    Thank you so much for coming to my party!

    Shelia ;)

  20. You sure have a lot of cute roosters and chickens in your farmhouse! I couldn't help but notice your dining chairs are almost exactly like ours which came from Pennsylvania (hubby's aunt lived there and bought them there). Ours are probably 50 years old. I don't see that style often unless in a magazine. Have a great day!

  22. Girl...you have more roo's than me! And that is a LOT my friend. Thanks for sharing your beautiful country home with us, I adore it, and it looks so cozy too. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate these days. ME TOO!!~ My kids are running me ragged, can't wait for school to start. Of course I will miss them:)

  23. Oh how fun, they are here, there and everywhere. I especially like your chalkboard and wish I could make out the artist name on that print - it's fantastic.
