Something To Crow About

Applejack Lane has joined a Rooster Party. Thanks, Barb, for the invitation. Here are a few of my crowing friends.

My country kitchen hosts this fine fellow amidst some strawberries on the pie safe...
and a serving dish lingers nearby...
a rooster rug underfoot...a small painting on the wall...
a suncatcher for the window...
and a blue milk glass specimen stands guard in the dining room.
But my favorite one has to be the hand made weather vane my dad had out in the yard at the family farm.
Visit Barb at Bella Vista for more participants in the Rooster Party.

Oh I love the blue milk glass rooster. I'm not even sure I knew blue milk glass existed - what and green, but not blue. He's gorgeous, and I'm going to have to educate myself on blue milkglass.

Happy Rooster Day.
