I made the shelf above from wood of the old dining room walls,
 which hold my white Great Gathering Dishes.
 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. 

Close up: Notice the star on my Early American Precut Crystal Pitcher.
 Some call this pattern the Star of David.
 I this pitcher use to serve orange juice or iced tea.

  Holds a metal rooster filled with  soft peppermint, and my wheat creamer and sugar bowl, 
bought at the Valentine’s Auction with a set of dishes. 
The coffee pot was bought with the wheat dishes all for $20.00.
This is one of my favorite Roosters. It is wooden and I bought it on my last trip home from working and traveling with an aviation company.  Three years ago, from Cracker Barrel for $6.00. 
  A small basket of faux sunflowers and wooden corn.
My white teapot from Jerome Tanks,
 in Philadelpia, Mississippi bought for $4.00

Notice the Rooster Apron on back of the door, My friend Kathy lives an hour away, 
she comes to visit me every few weeks, and brings me what I call happys to brighten up my day.
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.

Table setting for my little chicks, I mean my Grandchildren!
I used plastic rooster plates with  Cambridge Demitasse flatware,
 and Demitasse cups and saucers.

Rooster Teapot sits on top of A wooden sunflower.
I used an black and white gingham valance for the table cloth.

Yes, they need big napkins! lol  Did you say why is there table behind the bench?  My grandchildren love it there. I have tried to move it and they say Please Granna! 
What can I say? lol

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 Iced Tea Party!

  20. Hi Lady Katherine;
    I enjoyed my visit to your Tea Parlor! It is so beautifully decorated, such detail, it’s just wonderful.
    I love to see nature at work, watching chicks hatch is one of them. My neighbor and my daughter have chickens, so they have fresh eggs on a regular basis.
    Going back to the basics of living, I agree with you. The fun and enjoyment of seeing our family grow is just something we could not live without.
    Thank you for such a wonderful visit.
    Blessings to you and your family.

  21. Hi Lady Katherine,

    I always enjoy stopping by and seeing your wonderful collections. You know just how to display everything to show it off to its best advantage. You’ve included so many wonderful, charming details in this week’s table(s)! How lucky your family is that you’re so creative and caring!

    Seeing the little chicks hatching was a real treat! I’m so glad you included that wonderful image!

    Have a happy 4th!

    Warmest regards,

  22. You set such a lovely table, full of dtail. I especially love the grandchildren’s table. Those chairs are wonderful. Hatching chicks! What fun!

  23. Katherine, you have an extraordinary collection of roosters/chickens/chicks…love all the plates. The little grandchildren’s table is adorable. I loved the picture of the hatchlings.
    Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

  24. Hi, Katherine,
    I thoroughly enjoyed all your pictures of your tablescape and farmhouse. Everything is so pretty. I love the kids’ table, too. Hope you and Terry have a wonderful 4th.

  25. Thanks so much for stopping by and also your lovely comments but I did have a chuckle when I read them…the sugar sticks are made by a company called ‘Donna Hay’ who is a famous chef so they aren’t really ‘hay sugar’!! I bet you were thinking we do some funny things here in Australia!!

  26. The fabric on your bench is the very fabric I have used to make my kitchen curtains!Love the rooster theme and plan to use it as my inspiration for a few table settings of my own~ thank-you!
