ROOSTERS ON THE TABLE!

I am going to join in the 2nd Annual Show Us Your Roosters hosted by the the lovely Barb at BELLA VISTA

Sorry for the dark photos, I was so busy trying to get all my photos taken and posts done before leaving for the World's Longest Yard Sale tomorrow.
I started with a tan placemat, added brown handled silverware and a wine colored napkin.  A Harlequin cup and saucer for tea.
Vintage Rooster plates are layered on top of dark green dinner plate
These Poppytrail dishes by Metlox were found at a thrift shop for 80 cents each
Vintage Rooster salt & pepper shakers continue the green, wine and yellow color
I found two of these Roosters at a yard sale for 50 cents each they have been broken and glued together but still hold a lot of charm
Green water glasses and a Burgundy teapot complete the setting


Some other Roosters in my kitchen/breakfast nook
A couple of Roosters on a bookcase 
Another Vintage Rooster plate on the wall
On another wall is a Rooster Wall Sconce
I just need to find the perfect candles
This set of pictures is on the wall by the back door
I love this with it's coffee and Rooster theme
This was a birthday gift from my friend Sandie at  
CHATTY CRONE
I love how it looks in my kitchen


Another Rooster tablescape
This tablescape uses black, white, red and yellow
The charge plate is red, a white dinner plate, black salad plate and a white bowl.  Silverware is red handled set found at a thrift.
This tablescape was inspired by these great napkins
I bought these with a CSN gift card I won
Isn't this the cutest pattern!
I only have one rooster napkin ring but maybe I can find another one 
This cute plate continues the black, white & red theme
This Rooster holds a tea light and is just so cute
I found this at a yard sale!
Crazy Vintage Salt & Pepper shakers
Just a quick fun table to show some more of my Roosters~


This metal Rooster will hold a plant on the screened porch
and my last Rooster to share
I won a set of two of these gorgeous Rooster chargers from my wonderful friend Diann at THE THRIFTY GROOVE
This is the tablescape I did back in April


I am also linking up with 
Suzanne at COLORADO LADY
and
Susan at BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH


Please take some time to visit the wonderful Rooster, Vintage and Tablescape posts at all these fabulous blogs.


Always,
Linda

Linda, I think you have done three or four posts today. I don't know how you have had time to get ready for your trip. Love all your roosters. Such fun tables and have fun shopping.

Linda, I really like the chargers you won from Diann. Your S&P shakers are so cute, as are the napkins. Black and white is such a classic and your place setting looks nice with its red and yellow accents.

Rooster Extravaganza!! I didn't have time to find my few roosters to showcase. I'll just send everyone over to yours. I am really jealous of the lawnsale journey you are about to do. Jealous, envious, I want to go ..... you get the idea. Boy you had better show all your goodies. have fun.

Francie of The Scented Cottage said...

Ooooh I have several of the plates you have on the wall. Great roosters...hmmm wonder if you'll bring any back from the yard sale...

Susan said...

Oh wow, Linda. What a great rooster collection you have going. Those roosters just below the salt and pepper shakers (which by the way, are adorable!), the one's you paid 50 cents for... well, I found those exact roosters at an Estate Sale going for 60 bucks a piece! Needless to say I did not come home with them. :-( So, glued together or not, great find there!

I really like all your roosters. The tea light candle holder (black metal rooster) is so cool. The chargers from Diann, Wow!, and the white roosters in the center of your plates are lovely. Great table scape.

I love your post for the Rooster party. I hope you have a blast a the WLYS this weekend.

Your blog pal,
Susan

I've had a cooking injury which has made it hard for me to type but I want you to know that I have enjoyed scrolling through your rooster post. I'm very visual and appreciate every unique rooster I'm seeing as I hop from blog to blog! Forgive me for not being able to be more personal. Cock a doodle do!

Such a great Rooster party. I especially loved the cute ceramic roosters - they brought back such sweet family memories as they are similar to ones my grandparents used to have. And the adorable country rooster plate on the wall is delightful. And yes, those napkins are so adorable! Thanks for such a fun Rooster blog party!

Hi Linda...

Oooh...I love all of your vintage rooster plates...sooo pretty, my friend! Just love all of your pretty roosters but I especially like the black tea light rooster that you have on the table...I've never seen one like that before! And...I love, love, LOVE those vibrant yellow napkins with the roosters...they're so cheery! I certainly can see how they inspired the rooster-scape! Thank you so much for sharing your GRAND collection of roosters with us today...such a treat! Well my friend, I am sooo envious of you...getting to go to the Longest Yard Sale! Have lots of fun and I can't wait to see what goodies you bring home! Hehe!

Warmest wishes,

Your tables look great and I have to say I love the Metlox rooster plates. Love the way the colors all go together.

You have a thing for Birds!
Love your table setting and the salt and peppers are so lovely!

someplace in thyme said...

Oh la la, nice birds you have there. I see one that I also own, the red white and blue patriot rooster. I totally forgot to showcase him, he is up high in my office and out of sight, sadly, out of mind. You have a wonderful collection and it was my pleasure to visit, Char

Ruby said...

I'll have to follow so I can see what you and Pinky bring home! Love your roosters. The first setting is my favorite (if I have to choose) Thanks for sharing.

What fun! I missed this party...bummer! But, you have some fun roosters!

Unknown said...

Hi just have to ask where you found the rooster and hen plate. My grandma had a set of those when I was a little girl. Only thing I have is a platter that matches this design.
