Attention Rooster Lovers!!

Hey Guys! I hope you are all having a great week! First I wanted to remind you about the giveaway Kim at My Domestic Bliss is hosting. The winner will get to choose any item from my Etsy Store. I also wanted to say that if the item is sold I should be able to recreate something similar.

Do you remember when I went over to a dear lady's home to demonstrate my little Valentine terrarium for her garden club? Well, while I was there I took some pictures of her beautiful kitchen. She had set an adorable table! The theme of the garden party was "unusual containers". Look at that beautiful butterfly salad bowl! She even made a fresh flower salad. Too Cute! And those adorable rooster dishes...love em!


She put fresh flowers in the napkin rings...and look at those rooster glasses!

Look at those salad utensils that match the pretty bowl...
This chandelier is just gorgeous! She waited 18 months for it...it came from Paris...Wow~(click to enlarge)
The roosters are amazing!

This chest and lamp are stunning too.

See the little roosters on the table?
Oh...and there are some on the pillow too.Cute rooster towel holder and embroidered towel!
Aren't her roosters Fabulous?! Since this post is about roosters, I thought I would post this rooster frame I just added to my Etsy shop.

Have a great rest of the week! Are you guys ready for spring?? I know I am!

So ready for spring! I'm not a rooster person, but I enjoyed hers because they were all pretty & tastefully displayed. Love that chandelier and the salad utensils.

Can we ever have enough rooster pictures? I think not.
She has some very nice ones.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

How pretty, Kristen! I even like her linens ~ the placemat is very pretty and it looks like there is a rooster on there, too.

Kim said...

Great post Kristen. I've always loved your rooster centerpiece - that is truly one-of-a-kind. Oh and what an amazing chandy in that lady's kitchen!
xoxo,
Kim

Cathy said...

Kristen...what a lucky girl you are to have the opportunity to visit all of these gorgeous homes!

I love...love...love all of her beautiful roosters...the chandy is to die for! The bowl is gorgeous and I love the idea of using it for the flowers...wonderful.

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen ... so much more I'd love to do ... a little at a time, right? And, I'm SURE your pretty self can talk hubby into granite countertops !! Did you decide on paint for the island yet? Hugs, Becca

Melissa Miller said...

~WOW! Kristen her home is amazing! I adore the pretty rooster lamp, towels and the unique salad bowl. Everything is so gorgeous. Her colors used throughout are beautiful too.

A Hint of Home said...

We are so ready for Spring here. Been way below normal temps.
She does have an adorable kitchen area. The chandy is very unusual. Love her cabinet with the rooster on it.
The centerpiece bowl in darling.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Isn't it funny how these things run in cycles. My mom had chickens and roosters in her red and white kitchen when I was a child. Her stove was red! Now, fast forward a few decades and this is the style again. I never really liked them...until now. So far, no roosters in my house...but, I think that will change very soon. There are some beautiful things in this woman's home!

Sandy said...

Be a sweetie,

Oh what a lovely home this lady has! I don't have roosters but can see that her collection is beautiful and so tastefully displayed! I love the chady! Gorgeous! And the glass topped cabinet in the first picture is so pretty! Thanks for showing all this, Kristen! XO, Pinky

Angie said...

Love all the cute rooter stuff and would love to have it all in my own house! I was in Michaels tonight and saw terrariums just like yours. I think I may go back tomorrow and use my coupon to get it. Then I can decorate it for Spring and Easter and all the other holidays. Thanks for the great idea!

Kristen, I am so glad I came by to look at your blog today. I love those roosters. That chandy is to die for. Wow, she waited eighteen months! I am sure it was worth the wait. Her table setting is gorgeous. I love her rooster dishes and those are the cutest placemats and napkins. Beautiful salad bowl with the flower salad in it. I could stand there and look at her pretty things all day. Thanks for sharing and come by some time for a visit. I am going follow your blog so I can keep up with all your lovely posts. My pic comes out blank in the follow section for some reason.
