Somethin' to crow about...

Which came first...
the Chicken, or the Egg...
or the Rooster?

Well, if we know Roosters, we'd know they think it's all about them!

Here's a vintage group from my kitchen counter,
raising a ruckus.
Roosters fit right in whether you're decor is French Country,
or "French Farmhouse"!!

A little box I found a few years ago,
and look it has an "egg" in it.

Hmm... a rooster with an egg?

My sunroom baker's rack has a summer farmhouse theme going

Here is another fella sort of "chalky"
and very colorful.

And a teensy chalk hen on a nest

This cutie little vintage planter definitely needs some ivy on it's backside


And this mom and baby are another vintage set
 that is hollow on the inside
some sort of chalk, cement-y mixture.

Love them!

  13. Wonderful collection, I suppose I might 'catch' one of two of these in the future but for now I am enjoying my 'real' girls...I'll be posting my Chicken Mansion over at The Heart of the Home Party tomorrow. See you there!

  16. Debra, you have such a cute collection, and you have displayed them all so well! Very cute vignettes. LOL I love what you wrote about it being all about the roosters! ;P

  17. Love all your Roos and Chicks. Here in the south we sometimes call them "Yard Birds". Roosters always remind me of Key West. They run around all over the place and are really beautiful. Looking forward to Design Challenge!

  18. The concrete garden pair is my favorite, we had some like these on the farm where i grew up. I am not sure what ever happened to them. Thanks for sharing. Richard at My Old Historic House.

  19. Hi there, your chickens and roosters are all beautiful! I loved the old ones, the mother and baby! They just add so much to a home I think. :D

  20. My neighbor growing up had the hen and chicken in the yard like yours. I love the chalkware one!

  23. I love all these wonderful roosters...especially the chalkware ones!

  24. I love roosters as they remind me of my sweet grandma's everyday dishes that had the cutest roosters on the plates!
    I don't have any in my house... i have bunnies and birds,,, a few German pink pigs and lots of Staffordshire animals.
    In my last house, I did the French Country toile thing and had roosters in my kitchen there.
    They flew the coop when we moved to this place!

    Great collection, Debra!

  30. Love the roosters, and chickens, I use them tru out my home to. Hugs Mary

  31. Debra,
    Adore you collection of Roosters, Hens and Chickens On Common Ground! What a lovely display on your baker's rack! Mine is out on the deck and exposed to the elements so I have to be very careful what I put on it for display. Sadly, all too late, I've found two "treasures" broken from blowing off the shelves! The winds are fierce on this end of the Prairie! Thank you for sharing your collection!

  32. My Mom had a wonderful rooster collection in her kitchen too Debra! I kept 3 favorites that I rotate in my kitchen now. Thanks for the memory today!

  33. Enjoyed seeing your flock. I love those little hinged boxes - especially when there is a little treasure inside.

  34. Love your collection of roosters! Ugh, I missed this party but I sure am enjoying all of roosters. :)

  35. Debra-- it has been FOREVER since I've visited. Your collection is wonderful and that tiny egg is precious :)


  36. The older "chalky" ones are adorable. Trish

  37. Oh be still my heart! I am in rooster heaven looking at these photos. I love all your roosters! I have lots of roosters myself. Some of mine are Jamaican art.
