Rooster Party! I Had To Add Just A Bit More

Hello, Dear Ones! Oh, I'm just thrilled to death! Today we are all going to a special party! A Rooster party and that is with a capital "R"!! My sweet friend, Barb at Bella Vista is our hostess! I must tell you, I'm posting early because we're taking off again tomorrow and I wanted to make sure my tiny post was up. You know Roosters are right up my alley!

Please go here to visit our Dear Hostess, Barb, and you'll get a barn yard of Roosters!

Now I would love to share with you my dear Roosters and a few hens and chicks thrown in!

Some of my barnyard dishes! :)

Salt and peppers! On the left hand side is a Rooster hook given to me by my Dear Friend Jan!

Cockadoodledoo!! :)

Roosters on chairs on plates.

Here a Rooster, there a Rooster, everywhere a Rooster! The top left photo is before I found my tiny hutch for the breakfast room.

Roosters on cloth - pillows and tea towels!

Rooster lamps! :) Oh, they just light up my tiny life! :)

Roosters and more Roosters! The three little Rooster jugs at the bottom right started my Rooster obsession! The little stinkers! :)

Roosters hanging on the wall!

Oh, Dear Ones, this is my most favorite Rooster of all! Mr. Precious gave him to me and I love
him so much. Well, not as much as I love Mr. Precious! Or Chloe Dawn! :)

Dear Ones, I just had to add a view pictures of a Chick Tablescape from just a few weeks ago. You've probably seen it, but these little yard birds were feeling so left out!

This is another tablescape using my Roosterness I posted about last year!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

I Only Have Eyes For You

My love must be a kind of blind love
I can't see anyone but you.

Are the stars out tonight?
I don't know if it's cloudy or bright
I Only Have Eyes For You, Dear.

The moon maybe high
but I can't see a thing in the sky,
'Cause I Only Have Eyes For You.

I don't know if we're in a garden,
or on a crowded avenue.

You are here
So am I
Maybe millions of people go by,
but they all disappear from view.
And I Only Have Eyes For You.
~sung by me to my Roosters!
