Rooster Party II

Rise and shine! I'm joining in with the Rooster Party II hosted by Barb at Bella Vista.  This has been a most anticipated event so here are some of Applejack Lane's favorites.
A rooster vignette on the pie safe with a platter and lamp...
Mr. Cock-a-doodle-do...
A Jim Shore teapot from my friend at Snap Peas...
From my  patriotic collection...
A blue milk glass rooster from my MIL's collection of blue glass...
I know it's a chicken, but it's a neat piece from my candy container collection...
A hand made rooster weather vane that came from the family farm...
Thanks for visiting.

Hi JoAN! I've had a cooking injury which has made it hard for me to type but I want you to know that I have enjoyed scrolling through your rooster post. I'm very visual and appreciate every unique rooster I'm seeing as I hop from blog to blog! Forgive me for not being able to be more personal. Cock a doodle do!

Hi there, I am over to visit you and take a peek at your rooster collection! It is hard for me to pick a favorite, they are all so wonderful! LOVE the weathervane and the patriotic basket are the ones I adore the most!

Enjoy your day and thanks for having me!

Kathy said...

It was wonderful to visit your blog today and check out your roosters. You have a lovely way of placing them and the photos turned out great. Because of my quilting interest, I'd have to say that my favorite one is the Jim Shore teapot.

Sherry said...

Your blue milk glass rooster is awesome. I haven't seen one of those before. Very pretty Jim Shore rooster. I have the candy container chicken and I am giving it to my grnadmom for her birthday. Yours still has the paper bottom, that is neat! Have a great weekend.

Hello again, Joan!

Thanks so much for your visit to my blog and comment on my rooster post. I'm wondering if Cindy of Applestone Cottage is the OTHER Badger you've met in blogland - - - 'cause she IS one too and I got to meet her at Applestone Cottage this June!!!

BTW - - - we used to live in NC and traveled up into Virginia several times - - - beautiful country.

Sandy J said...

What a lovely collection - I especially like the blue milk glass.

I also have to say that I've enjoyed reading your blog today. My father was originally from Warm Springs area of VA and it just made me feel at home.
