It's a Party.......

Today I a am linking up with Bella Vista for a party to show off your roosters. Now I am some what of a rooster novice as I only have a few pieces but slowly I think they are becoming a collection or an obsession, not sure which.

A friend of mine painted this rooster to go in my kitchen, which doesn't really have roosters, maybe just a picture but anyway, he was a present and now needs to find a home.




I think he is somewhat of a noisy fellow or would be if his chicken lips were real. :)

I even took him outside to see if he would like it in the garden........but not so much.


So he came to rest on the kitchen table where he has some family to keep him company.



Where this plump little chicken can keep an eye on him.



And he isn't the only guy in the house. This has always been a favorite of mine so it was just natural that roosters start showing up in the my house.



A $2.00 find at the bargain bin at Hobby Lobby. He's coming into the house too! 


He just sits on his little pedestal watching the rest of the chicks go by.

Did I tell you my roosters like sunflowers? They do, and here are a few that they hang with. I am also joining Tootsie for Flaunt your flowers Friday. 


A gift from my daughter, she picked up these little candle holders on a trip to Omaha.


I guess I love sunflowers too as I have them all over the yard. And here is what is blooming in my yard.



I love the soft orange/peach color of this Lilly.

Purple cone flower............is pink so why don't they call it pink cone flower, anyway it is in full bloom in my yard and all over Nebraska.
The day lilies are winding down but still put on a good show.

The heat is getting to things my clematis is now done blooming and the hostas are getting a little ragged around the corners.


And if the front yard the the grannies like to play in the middle of the petunias.


And one of my favorite watering cans, actually it is an oil can but I love it all the same. 

Please stop by Bella Vista and Tootsie to see some wonderful rooster and the most beautiful flowers ever.

Happy warm August day to all.

Love your roosters and sunflowers Debbie! I am a collector of roosters too, and I love sunflowers!! I have rooster and sunflower decor in my kitchen and diningroom areas..

I also love having colorful flowers throughout my landscaping, but don't have any to speak of at all this summer.. My roses aren't doing real well and neither are my lilies.. I blame it mostly on the really hot weather we've been having our way lately..

I really enjoy reading your blog, and really enjoyed reading it today and I definately enjoy all the pictures you share on your blog too!!

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend too!

Blessings,
~Lynn

I'd say the baby rooster (your gran) is the cutest of them all.

Thanks for sharing

Your daylilies look great. Love the sunflower candle too. What I like best is your very unique fountain: a bathtub with a shower! Wow, is that ever neat and creative.

Visiting the rooster party I have found that a lot of blogger that collect roosters also collect sunflowers. Trish

I think the little yard "gnome" in overalls is the cutest thing you showed us...everything else paled in comparison to his twinkly blue eyes!

I've often asked the question, how many of something does it take to become a collection? My answer is more than one. I think you love roosters, just didn't know it until now. Your rooster that watches over the family is so pretty he deserves the attention he gets. Thanks so much for the share, I really enjoyed it, Char

Tootsie said...
