I’ll show you my Roosters !

 Barb\

Darn that Barb at Bella Vista…I like roosters but, I didn’t have any…Barb made me shop…so I here is what I found.

026

25 cent little rooster plate….at the GW.

018

Rooster cookie jar – 1/2 price for 6 bucks at ARC. Do you see a glance at my re-modeled kitchen….just waiting for one more appliance before I can show it off….It was a complete re-gut down to the studs- we did 90% of the work ourselves.

035 

Our neighbor just gave us a rooster , his name is Oscar– see he has no tail feathers (somebody wasn’t very nice to him)  he is a Polish chicken – look at that hair cut !

030

This is our only chicken, Peggy– so she needed a “man friend” , LOL !  She layed a whole bunch of eggs before Oscar came – I hate to break the news to her that they will not hatch…..at least she is practiced now !

Hugs ~ Kammy

Love that cookie jar and the olden plate. Too CUTE.

I hope your new real Rooster gets his tail feathers back!

Cute photos... love the polish rooster. So handsome! Well, in a strange kind of way... :) And I LOVE that cookie jar. So cute!

MissyM said...

That plate catches my eye. Great finds!! Your real life rooster and hen are wonderful!

Kendra @ Domestic Princess in Training said...

I love the roster plate! Good ole GW does it again. I’ve been trying to keep myself out of GW…..I need to cut back. My birthday is the weekend though and I think I deserve a little GW shopping….right? I love your Polish roster too. That’s great that your neighbor gave it to you! I guess that’s another perk of having a “Small Home in the Country”!

Great deals! Like the cookie jar.

Southern Fried Gal said...

Love the plate and the price! What a sweet hen and rooster you have. So good of you to rescue them!

Rambling Girl said...

Oh my I can't believe this...I collect those plates...I have been hunting these on the internet for over a year and have got a three plates and three saucers. Still looking for some more...so if your interested in selling this plate or swapping for another rooster item I would be happy to. I have been looking for a platter now. My husband's grandmother is where I saw this pattern and she had a plate and some saucers so since then I have been hunting these everywhere.

Oh goodness the rooster...I have been telling hubby I wanted some on our little farm. We have a goat farm and I want a couple of chickens and roosters to add on to our farm.

Love the cookie jar...I have also gotten so into roosters and have to get my post ready for tomorrow.

Happy hunting!

If you tell me that rooster in the kitchen is a Fitz & Floyd for that price I will cry.
Nice that you are coming over to the rooster "dark side". Once you start with them there is no going back to being roosterless. (not a word I know)

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Kammy.............oh, girl, did I make you buy roosters?! Well, you can give me the rooster cookie jar to make up for it!!!!!!! Oh, I love that. You are the queen of the great deals....I mean it. I am going to drag my sweet hubby in here to see all your finds!

Thanks for being such a wonderful part of the rooster party, Kammy!!!!

Hugs, Barb

Eileen said...

This was adorable! I love your finds! And I love Oscar and Peggy! You are too funny!
Great post!
All the best,
Eileen
PS I have TONS of roosters but most are packed away!

Jane said...

Enjoyed your rooster post. I've been keeping my eyes open at the thrift stores for rooster related items this past couple of weeks but didn't come up with anything. I do have a couple already in my kitchen that I've got to take pictures of for the party (nothing like waiting until the last minute!!)

Kim said...

Love your roosters!!! Even the real one. Can't wait to see your finished kitchen. I need to do my rooster post. But I still need to take photos. I have to wait till I get home from work. I'm such a procrastinator.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hi Kammy,
I love your cute little bargain roosters! Way to go girl! Now that kitchen, has me so curious~ it looks like it's fabulous! When you going to share? hehe, Cindy

Love the rooster plate and the cookie jar is wonderful. Now for the real rooster and hen, what a neat thing. I love fresh eggs, I am so jealous. Hugs, Marty

Marla said...

Kammy, how cool you have the real thing, a live rooster. Love the plate and cookie jar.

Amy said...

I love the rooster cookie jar! Great finds.

Shirley said...

That's a wonderful cookie jar, but my favorite is Oscar : )) I think he will be very happy with Penny. She's very pretty. Wish I could have chickens however I have a bird dog! An English pointer. Not a good mix!

Tootsie said...

what a great post! I love the cookie jar...and that chicken is very cute!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

What cute Roosters...and a REAL LIFE CHICKEN??!!! I would love to have some chickens..and a Rooster. I used to love waking up to them in the morning. I could hear them clear across the valley. First one would crow and then the next further away, and then the next and so on..until ours would crow again! How I miss it all!

jennifer said...

I like that you have the real thing!!

The cookie jar is gorgeous. I had one once but it wasn't nearly as pretty as yours.

Have a great weekend!

Cindy said...

Great, GREAT roosters. I love your rooster's hair style! I wish we could have chickens but our HOA would have a fit!
I would have grabbed the rooster plate and cookie jar too, great finds!

Jane (Frugal Fine Living) said...

Great deal on the plate, Kammy! I want that cookie jar!

Hi Kammy,
WOW! I don't have the words to express what I thought when I saw your cookie jar! STUNNING comes close. What is the brand and does he have name? It looks like a rooster of mine and he's a fitz and Floyd. I MUST find your cookie jar. Thanks for sharing and DO enjoy your view. My summers as a child were spent and the grandparents in Montana. When you walked out the kitchen door, the view which felt like a stones throw close, was the Rockies...BEAUTIFUL!

Debbie said...

Hi Kammy, Thanks for visiting. You have a nice start now with roosters. When you find one that speaks to you, just grab it. Have a great day, Debbie

Mrs. P. said...

Great roosters! Love the polish rooster. We had a hen like him...named Henny Penny...my children were little then, lol.

Torie Jayne said...

Hi fellow party goer, Great rooster finds! Have a sweet weekend!x

My Crafty Little Page said...

Twenty five CENTS??!!! That plate is so CUTE. And you have real life roosters you lucky girl. How is it going with Peggy's new love? He must have a good personality because he's not much on looks. LOL.. But then Peggy is an extra fine looking gal! You underestimate yourself - you have great roosters! Happy day to you. :) Nancy

Kathleen said...

I don't collect roosters either..but I do have white napkins! ;)
You did great shopping as usual...
Come see mine, and you can laugh, I am thick skinned! :)

deborah said...

I love your plate

Lara Harris said...

Bearly Sane said...

Hi Kammy,
That cookie jar was a great find for six bucks! I want one desperately, do they sell them online?

Patti Cakes said...

What a neat little plate. I've got all kinds of roosters around the house but I've had too much going on to join in. Maybe next time.

Hope your surgery goes well. You'll have to tell me all about it.

Hugs

Sue said...

I do believe, Kammy, that you should take a prize for posting your own real live rooster!!! Too funny...
Your cookie jar is amazingly beautiful. You really got a bargain there! What is ARC?
:-) Sue

Rhondi said...

Not many of us have a real rooster to show. You have us all beat!

Barb said...

Hi Kammy,

You have a good eye and have found some fabulous roosters. That Oscar is going to love his new home.

hugs,
Barb

Elaine said...

Hi Kammy. I really like the old plate that you found and your polish chicken is adorable. What a haircut!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

I'm still making my rooster rounds!

haha...funny that Barb "made" you shop! love that excuse :o)

Beautiful rooster cookie jar!!! and a peek at your amazing kitchen remodel (from what you can see :o) wow! that you did about all of it yourselves!

& your Oscar does have quite the hairdo! Wonder if Peggy likes his "do"?

Blessings & Aloha!
If you're not tuckered out...hope you stop by my rooster party :o)

(also ope that your recovery is a speedy one after your surgery...my hubby had robotic heart surgery to replace the stretched chordei in a heart valve...absolutely wonderful...recovery was less than 1/2 the time of a traditonal open heart surgery! He was back at work about one week later!)

Leanne said...

I love your shopping finds. Great job, they're beautiful.

I totally love your rooster cookie jar you found! SOOO cute!!!

Hey btw, I may be the master rooster collecter, but you are the master spray painter! hee hee!

Hugs,
Sherri:)
