Sounds from the Chicken Coop

Hello, Dear Ones! Do you hear it? Do you hear the sounds from the chicken coop? Listen...

There are peeps and clucks coming from some of my old tablescapes.

I think some Roosters have gotten into the chicken coop! :)

Even some very elegant looking yard birds.

Now if you don't know, I'm having another Heart of the Home Party - Roosters and Chickens, and you're invited! I thought I would remind you by showing you a few of my Rooster and Chicken things.

I love this tiny little Chicken egg dish. It was given to me by my friend, Jan from Jan Tanis Designs blog. Isn't she cute?

White Chicks and a colorful platter. I just love this stuff!

Here's a couple of little tea towels I've made and use quite frequently - Roosters and Chickens.

Then a darling little Rooster or Chicken tassel, I can't decide which one. Another little cutie.

Okay, now I would love for you to come to my party on Tuesday, August 9th, right here at Note Songs cottage. I know you all love your yard birds like I do and you have lots to show. Even if you only have one yard bird, come on to the party.

Now I will have a give away for those of you who link up to my party! I'll take your link number to draw a winner after the party. I think you'll like it and I'll show it to you later what it will be.

So I hope you're arranging and snapping away and getting your posts ready! I'm excited and hope you are too! I can still hear those sounds from the Chicken Coop, can you?

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Foot Loose

Been working so hard
I'm punching my card
Eight hours for what
Now tell me, what have I got
I got this feeling
That time's just holding me down
I'll hit the ceiling or else I'll tear up this town

Now I gotta cut loose, footloose
Kick off my Sunday shoes
Please Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back
Come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose

You're playing so cool
Obeying every rule
Dig way down in your heart
You're burning, yearning for some-
Somebody to tell you
That life ain't passing you by
I'm trying to tell you
It will if you don't even try

You can fly if you'd only cut loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Oohee Marie, shake it, shake it for me
Oh Milo, come on, come on let's go
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose

Cut footloose, cut footloose, cut footloose

First we've got to turn you around
Second, put your feet on the ground
Third, now take a hold of your soul

I'm telling you loose
Footloose, kick off your Sunday shoes
Please Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back
Come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back
Come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut
Everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody, everybody cut footloose

  8. Hello My Dear. I live in a small midwest town of 490. We have several people who have chickens within our city limits. I grew up with them too. I often hear the old roosters early in the morning and the cluck, clucks as Sissy and I walk by. I love there scratching as well. And I am not ashamed to say. Fried Chicken is my most favorite food. Go figure. RC at My Old Historic House

  9. Hi Shelia, Cockadoodledo to you today! That's what I heard as I walked in the yard this morning from way down the road. ;-) I love your chicken/rooster collection. Have a great day! ~ Pamela

  10. Oh Shelia, I haven't heard any clucking or crowing from chickens and roosters in years, only feathered things making a ruckus here are you-know-who! But your dishes, oh my, the first photo, and the little egg dish, love them. I do love a good roast chicken, as terrible as that sounds, being a bird lover and all. :( xo

  11. I have heard some clucking and rooing going on in my house so I think they are getting ready for their big party! Looking forward to it for sure!

  12. Hi Sheila,

    I adore your rooster and chick tablescapes! Very country indeed. Thank you for stopping to visit me.

  13. Shelia, I will try and participate in this one...I do have chickens! lol LOVE your black ones at the top...I have the red ones like it and have wished a million times I had gotten the black ones too!!

  14. This is so funny, because last night I watched, "The Regular Show", a cartoon on Cartoon Network, and one of the characters in the episode sang "Foot Loose" at a Kareoke club - with the words on the screen to sing along with !! It was so funny and the song has been going through my head all day.
    Love, Lorraine

  15. Hello my dear Shelia!
    Thank you for the invitation to the Rooster and Chicks party ... woo-hoo!
    Gonna break out my fowl.
    LOVE all your chickies ... those white napkin rings? My Mom had those -- I think they are still at the beach house!

    My daughter brought me a rooster from China, too -- I'll include him in the party, although he doesn't speak much English.
    Happy days!

  16. Shelia, you have the CUTEST roosters and chickens around blogland! I love all those dishes you pictured and those napkin rings! Wow! How fun. I have a few things but I don't know if I have enough to share. :(

  17. You have some great chicken stuff, I don't think I have even one little rooster or chicken anywhere. I would love to join your party. I am going to have to get busy if I am going to.
    Love and hugs, Cindy

  18. Hi Shelia,
    I love your plates...you do have an amazing collection of roosters and chickens..
    I think I need go back and look at all of them again..
    sounds like its going to be a fun party!
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

  19. This time I promise myself that I will not forget to join in on the fun! I'll just have to gather up all those chickies and get ready.

    BTW, did you know I have a second blog called INSPIRATIONS? (You can link to it on my profile page.)

    I would love it if I could share one of your favorite posts... maybe you would even like to be a guest host sometime.

    Please come by for a visit.:)

    xoxo Bunny Jean

  20. I love all of your roos, Shelia! The roo tassel is too cute, too. What a fun party ... not sure that I have enough roos to participate, but I'll have a great time being inspired by everyone else's! xo

  21. Your post attracted me because we are working on a coop today for our chickens. Do you let live ones participate -- or are they too messy? P.S. I love the black and white tablescape. Joni
