 This shelf was stained and did hang above my stove.
Story goes hubby threw it out, after a few months in the rain, with me looking everywhere for it. 
Hubby told me it was in the junk pile, he helped  nail it back together. 
I did a brown and white crackled finish on this now hutch, which I use to serve Beverages.

Kathy, Thanks for making me this Wonderful Rooster Apron!

I have to interrupt this Rooster Party,
 for I have little chicks hatching out of the blue and green eggs.
Notice the egg close to the front, it is hatching at this moment.

For my Centerpiece:
My large Rooster, I bought years ago from Landrum’s, just outside of Laurel, Mississippi.
Where I use to demonstrate weaving on my loom, and spinning on my spinning wheel.
 The day after Thanksgiving every year.

My daughter bought the egg holder from a garage sale, I think it use to be a spice rack. 
A little sign I painted years ago.
Two smaller roosters one each side, and the white Roosters are salt and pepper shakers.

Can you tell which eggs are real or faux?
The two real eggs are by each corner of the sign I painted years ago.

Collage of place settings, chargers and plates used.
I have shown many close ups of my Early American Prescut Crystal for I have a huge collection. Which I have collected all over the South.
 and I have had many  asking to see close up of my collection.
This Ends this Rooster Party!  
As Always Save A Cup Of Tea For Me!

  1. Love the roosters! Hubby is crazy about them. If he had his way, there would be roosters all over our kitchen walls!

    Our baby roosters are just now learning how to crow.

    The hens that lay the blue eggs are not laying yet. Any day now…

  2. Oh I love, love, love all of your roosters and the dishes with roosters and chicks too. You have so many really precious ones. I love the primitive ones. They are always my favorites. Your real chicks are so sweet, what a thrill to have a picture of them hatching. Great and fun post. Hugs, Marty

  3. look at you post today!!! great job! You will really love the coffee cups I am hoping to post tomorrow…for thrify thursday or whatever that is called…lol..they are rooster shaped! I got them at a thrift shop for $3….and since I don’t even collect roosters…I don’t know what the heck I will use them for…I just knew I needed them to come home with me!

  35. Hi Katherine,
    Just stopping back by to say how much I appreciated your visit and thoughtful comments. My dad’s doing great … he went out to hear live music on Thursday night! He may be 83 and lived through a heart attack, but he’s not going to miss a thing if he can help it!

    Hope your weekend is going well …
