I Joined Barb's Rooster Party!

My favorite color is red, and my favorite flower is sunflowers. So when decorating my kitchen in my previous house I wanted to incorporate the two. This is when my rooster addiction began! It seems that roosters and sunflowers go hand in hand. I found a fabulous border and had paint custom matched to the sunflower in the border and the red in the border background. I loved that kitchen! When we moved to our present house (which is in another state) I went back to the store I got the border from and bought up all they had! I was determined to use it again! I used the yellow gold on the walls again but opted for some red wallpaper. I hope you enjoy my rooster clad kitchen and breakfast room--you might find a hen or two as well!!!
Here's a good look at my awesome border!!!
Found these lovelies on a clearance sale for $7.95 for the set!!!
I do love me a good clearance shelf!!
That rooster lightswitch cover was one of my first rooster purchases!
Found it on ebay!!
The plaque in the window is not rooster related- but had to show it!
But hey, you get a good look at my rooster toile valances!
Below are view of the left and right sides of the window.
Got him at an auction one night- love this oil on canvas guy! I think I paid around $6 for him- another bargain!

I need want a new stove. The previous homeowner left this one here. It works perfectly--has a double oven and stove drawers---but I like stainless. Problem is, this stove is an odd size- and it is hard to find a new one as wide as this one--that doesn't cost a fortune! So, maybe one day, but until then, we can cook the turkey and dressing for Thanksgiving at the same time!

What's for supper? Ask the husband-he's the cook around here!
Notice the menu is blank? The mister is out of town- so mom uses the microwave!


I am running out of wall space! Really, I am...I have two more pictures I really love- but nowhere to hang them!!

I absolutely love my rooster collections displayed on these shelves in the breakfast area. I tend to change it around pretty often as my collection grows!
These two white roosters came from TJ Maxx. I lurve TJ Maxx! I go weekly- no lie- ask my husband! My kids hate to go in there with me- I take toooooooo long! I usually leave with a rooster item or two!
Got this rooster tiffany lamp off ebay!
My husband and kids gave me these dishes a few years ago for Christmas.
They were too pretty to use! So they got displayed on my shelves!
They also got me this pair. They are part of a bog collection or something-
He said he was going to get me one every Christmas- that was two
Christmases ago---guess I need to remind him!
Another TJ find- it sits beside a cookbook which belonged to
my grandmother- I don't use the cookbook! That's my
husband's department, remember?!?!
Well~~~thanks for stopping by my henhouse! The rooster will crow early tomorrow- 
which by the way is our first day of school *sad face* :( so off to bed soon for us.
Come back again- I am sure to gain more rooster friends-- what was that? I think 
hear TJ Maxx calling- maybe after school tomorrow- just maybe!!!
