It's a Party Featuring ...Roosters!

Welcome to my version of
a Rooster Party.

Barb, at Bella Vista is so gifted at accessorizing!
She also has many, many friends in the
blog world because she makes everyone
feel so very welcome in her cyberspace.

This is Barb's Rooster Party.
How fun to get to participate!

With more than 190 linked posts
we are bound to see many variations
on the Rooster decor.
Have fun!
Thanks for stopping in!




A very good friend saw
this picture and thought
of my kitchen and its small
rooster collection.





My mother gave us a canister set
for Christmas a couple of years ago.
Our dogs get all excited when they hear the
lid being opened as that means a treat is
in their near future!





This is the rooster from a serving
platter that you most often see with
something on it, like this...





And while I was taking pictures
these two critters ended up in
the living room...teasing Kimmy.


Roosters can be bad like that,
you know. Well, she chased this
one right up onto the table.



I can still see you,
Mr. Rooster.
You'll have to find a
better hiding place!

Thanks for stopping by....

Hi Becky! Your roosters are quite beautiful. I love the cannister and your little Kimmy is too cute checking out the big guys on the floor. She's a brave little thing. My Molly would probably run from them. Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi Becky!.. Ya know?... I THOUGHT that rooster by the candle had a guilty look about him!! I'm glad Kimmy knows how to keep those roosters in line, and on their best behavior!

Hope you're having fun with all the rooster festivities, and that you have a wonderful weekend too! ~tina
