Wouldn't you know, I've been waiting to show off my Roosters and when I went to upload them to my computer, I had problems........Although some are missing, I'm sharing all the pictures that I have.....good or bad photos.
Rudy Rooster shown above, greets visitors from the back porch to our house. For you rooster lovers who may want him, I bought him on line at http://www.bobsflags.com/

Some of you may remember this rooster, he sits on my island in our kitchen, I bought him at Marshall's years ago, he was made in Italy, I paid $100 for him.


This guy greets me every day when I reach for my morning coffee. He was bought at Kirkland's for $39.



This rooster stands under the end of the kitchen island, he is my latest one, a gift from my son for my last birthday. He came from Lowe's Garden Center.


I believe this sitting rooster also came from Kirkland's, I'm not sure how much he cost.


I can't remember where this came from???????? Take notice to the rooster border, it is coming down soon.


The plate came from Marshall's, the creamer and sugar were a gift, there is a teapot to match, that picture is one that I lost in my camera.

More plates from Marshall's, and one half of a pair of figurines I purchased at least fifteen years ago at Boscov's.


The other half of collection shown above.


Creamer and sugar, a gift from friends.


Rooster mugs and a plate from Marshall's. Sorry it's not a good picture of the mugs. :(


Latest plate from Marshall's.


Rooster light, a gift from friends. They found it at QVC outlet.


Another gift from friends, it came from Kirkland's.


Rooster rugs that I bought at Home Decorators, there are three runners and a round one under the kitchen table (that was one of the pictures that I lost somewhere in the camera).
I also have rooster curtains and extra fabric, I honestly did take a picture of it, but that is also one that isn't showing up. The fabric is called Cock-A-Doodle-Doo and was purchased on line at the Fabric Place, the store went out of business this year. :(

Oh, how could I forget.....I even have writing paper from some of my grandchildren.

Oh sweetie, I "love" your rooster collection. Those rugs need to come to my house. lol They would be ever so "perfect" for my kitchen. I'm so sorry about your camera, I'm hoping it's nothing too serious. I sure know what you mean when your friend said you must be living under a dark cloud. Oh boy do I..struggling around here to get out from underneath one.. lots of hugs darling..

Hi! My goodness! For someone who lost pictures, you certainly STILL had quite a few to share! LOVE them ALL, right down to the rugs! Sorry to hear the wallpaper boarder is coming down though..

Oh, I love your roosters. They are so handsome. Thanks for showing us around. They are all so lovely, I'd have a difficult time deciding which one to pick as my favorite. This was my first Rooster Blog Party ever and I'm enjoying it very much. What a nice way to meet people. I hope you're having a great day!

I love Kirklands...in fact I could probably live there for a week or so.

Your Rooster from there is very sweet!

Happy Rooster Party

I wonder how much I have invested in my roosters. Never paid quite as much as you but I think the vintage iron lamp was close. LOL!

Lovely flock of birds you have. I like your plates the best. Some real cool roosters,there! Thanks.

Hi D~ ~ ~
Welcome back and with a bang too!
Wow, all your roosters are beautiful but I specially love the rugs. I've been thinking of doing a runner in front of the sink and maybe a rooster border in the diningroom. Love roosters but I only have 1, but he is a cutie. I have to post about him sometime.
