ROOSTER PARTY!

Today I am joining my sweet friend Shelia at Note Songs for her 
Rooster and Chickens party!

First here are a few tablescapes using various Roosters!
This tablescape was inspired by these fabulous chargers 
I won in a giveaway from Diann at
The Thrifty Groove
They sometimes hang on my dining room wall


This tablescape was inspired by these cute plates found in a thrift
California Provincial by Poppytrail Metlox.  I love how it goes with that great dark green color I love so much.

This next tablescape was inspired by this
These adorable Rooster napkins were purchased from CSN last year
I added some other Rooster/Chicken items to make this a fun table
Vintage S & P's 
A tea light can be added to this black rooster 
to add a nice glow to the table
Here are some other random Roosters that live with me
 
Some shelves in my breakfast room

This vintage plate hangs on the wall
I keep meaning to buy some chicks and hens to plant in this

Salt & Pepper Shakers

Old and chippy

Bright new colors

Charlie treats are kept in this great Fire King bowl with green roosters!

I hope you enjoyed my Roosters!
Now stop on by Shelia's and enjoy all the other Roos & Chicks!

I love the little tiny s & p shakers! And the colorful ones are great, too! I'm going to start looking for more when I shop! ♥

Leslie said...

I love your roosters. I have a collection too.

I love those Metlox plates. The Salvation Army in Bullhead City, AZ had a whole set of them with all the serving pieces. I wish that I had enough money to buy them this summer. They are awesome. If they are still there next time I go and just a tad discounted, I might have to get them.

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! Oh, I love your tablescapes with your yard bird dishes. That vintage plate you hang on your wall? I have the little creamer that matches it! I'd always hoped to find more of it. Those little Roosters and Chicks make me smile. Thank you so much for coming to my party.
You are the sweetie,
Shelia ;)

You sure have some cutie pies there Linda. I love the vintage dishes, I mean LOVE LOVE!

I knew you'd have some great ones! I like the vintage s&p's.

Vintage Christine said...

Well, darn it! There were some great little Fenton roosters I kept telling myself to buy at the convention but since I'm not too keen on them I passed them up, forgetting that every other person in the world loves them. Your tablescapes are always so lovely, and of course you know I love your shakers even if they ARE chickens!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

What a darling table. So fun and festive. I love your vintage S & P's. don't believe I've ever seen any... they sure make you smile when you look at them.. hugs ~lynne~
