Cock-a-doodle-doo!!!

Cock-a-doodle-doo! It's time to show off those roosters! Thanks to Barb at Bella Vista for hosting this fun party! Please pay her a visit, she has a wonderful blog and is featuring some beautiful roosters.

I made this arrangement when we moved in about 5 yrs. ago. It has evolved a bit over the years and I recently added rabbits for the spring and summer months, but Mr. Rooster is glad to be back!


He sits on my island and can be seen all around.


His mate is in the cabinent....

But she keeps an eye on him,lol... My favorite plate...

I hope you enjoyed the little rooster tour. I don't have alot of roosters, but I enjoy the ones I have! I'm currently looking for some small roosters to make arrangements to sell here on my blog. As soon as I find just the right ones, I will post them. I will also have some frames for sale soon too, since fall is coming I'm finally getting motivated! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Hello Kristen,
Oh your roosters are soooo pretty! I just love your plate! It is so elegant and lovely in your kitchen.

I'm not sure I realized you had a decorative tile inlay above your stove? ~WOW! That is so stunning.
I would love to see more close up pics of it one day soon.

I'm so ready to pull out my Fall stuff including your swag. Yay!
I'm holding off until the 1st though. It's just blazing HOT here right now.

I'll email you in a few weeks about the frame for my soon to be nephew. Thanks for offering to mail it directly to my sis. That will help me out alot. I definitely appreciate that very much.

Have a great weekend,
~Melissa :)

Really great looking roosters, and look how you set them up! The pieces are featured beautifully as they are. You don't need too many roosters.

Hopefully, this location is just the most suitable area to contribute this... I simply hoped to just let people on the forum who lives in Down Under know about a tremendous quality audio visual equipment web site which is called Ordio. I found them surprisingly by accident when I was shopping for [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]Sennheiser Headphones[/url] and it just so happened that these blokes had the lowest prices available. Not only that but they are genuinely informative and even followed up on my investment to make certain I was still completely happy. They buy out bigger inventories of the best in home entertainment equipment so that they can absolutely break the price down. Definitely visit their site if you're scouring the web for some home electronics.
