~SHAKE YOUR TAIL FEATHERS~

Thank you to Barb at
Bella Vista for hosting this delightful event! What a great idea!


I am going to make this easy on you. Nothing to get all excited about..however I do want to share this with you.
Today, just a few hours ago..I went into a little store called Gardners Cottage. Of course I have my eye out for roosters...and THEN...there HE was..in all his glory!
YES! The king of all roosters. He was white..and stood about 2 feet high.
Now..would you believe I actually considered BUYING that rooster?? He was wonderful!
He was GLORIOUS! As I reach for him...I came to my senses...when I saw the price! $499.00!
I didn't walk out of that store! I RAN! :)

My first and newest offering is this sweet little tassel! I love him!


And a dishtowel? Does this count?

Does a tablerunner count? Well...it certainly should! :)


And then there is this one...


...and this one...


Yes...and this one...


This one....


and this one...


(Yawn...and this one...)


Uh huh...


I'm almost done...


Yeppers!


Are we almost there? Oops! "She is a chicken, Mamsabe!" (Out of Africa quote!) Oh well, she is the mate of him...below. I couldn't leave her out. I mean, how could I do that! Anyway...


OK...ALL DONE!

No..I don't know the names of them. I know there will be others out there that will name these cuties...but not me.
I have a beautiful painting of roosters...my favorite one..and it, naturally didn't turn out. No matter.
There are going to be soooo many roosters to look at that you cannot possibly care!
~smile~
NOW..the good part. I'm shakin' my tail feathers all the way to your blog to look at YOURS! You ready??

Hugs..
Mona

  1. Mona, gee, for some reason I KNEW you would have plenty of roosters in the hen house! Always enjoy your blog! I should have joined in this fun party, but have way to many irons in the fire already..:(

  2. I just love you Mona! You got it! Now I want to know if you hear the farm noises in the background of my post? You have to turn up the sound a bit, they are quieter than all the music on the other blogs so I don't think anyone is catching them. I guess it doesn't really matter 'cause hubby just told me one sound is a turkey not a rooster!

    I love your roosters and am so glad you escaped from the giant white expensive one. I don't think any of us here are that crazy! We're far to thrifty! Don't stay up all night partying! Have a great weekend dear!

  9. Good Morning Mona! You have a great collection of roosters. I kind of laughed about the $500 one you almost bought. I've had those moments before. Thank goodness they pass quickly. :)

  15. Mona, It would've been a mad dash to see which of us could've got out the door of that shop faster! HOLY COW!!
    I loved your roosters, I didn't yawn once! And yes, towels and runners count! The runner was just beautiful!
    And I wouldn't've left out the she-chicken mate to the plate either!
    Hugs! Karen

  16. Oh Mona,
    You had me giggling with the little comments under the pictures of your roosters. Which, by the way are all beautiful. I LOVE the rooster table runner. How cute is that?!
    Patricia :o)

    PS: If a $500 rooster was chasing me, I'd run too!!

  17. Great roosters. That tassel is amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love your chargers!! Very primitive colors. I don't think I own one rooster anymore. I used to but that face came and went quickly. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh how fun. I love them all. YOu do have some really great ones, and they all look so happy where they are. Love the plates, well I guess I love them all. I probably would have gone crazy for the huge white one too, but like you, the price would have brought me to my senses. Great collection. Hugs, Marty

  22. Hi Mona
    What a great collection of roosters! My favorite is the little one on the tassel. It is precious. Can you believe they would charge $499 for a rooster!! Too bad you didn't take a picture of it in the store so we could all see it.
    Hugs, Rhondi

  24. When I saw the rooster in your banner I knew I was in for a treat. My favorite is the black and white one on the plate.
    You have a lot of them and not one the same as any of mine. What fun.

  29. I didn't have a clue that you loved roosters this much. They are all just precious.
    Oh, Mona...I am cleaning out my dining room and have so much clutter, it's just awful!! How do I get so much STUFF? I hang on to things that I think the grands might want but they are all young and it will be forever before they really want any of it...I am running out of room. Woe is me.....

  41. I have zero Roosters but I did post. Your collection is wonderful. Now I thought the one rooster that I saw that was $50 was pricy but your price tag must have been for the Godfather of Roosters!

  61. Ahhh, I love those majestic birds. It was a few years ago when I was at a flea market and came upon a real live rooster in a cage. I wanted to take him home so badly but I knew that MHS would never go for it. Instead I settled for decorating my kitchen with roosters. We are in a perpetual state of construction but my collection is growing. Thanks for sharing your roosters.
