~WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE~

Good Morning one and all...Yes I know I'm late to the party...But I will hang my head in shame and tell you why...I have not one Roo to wake me up !!


You see this sweet looking girl here sipping on a sweet tea like she's all innocent...well let me tell you she's not !! She's really a Fox in a Hen house...She steals every Roo I bring home...oh Yes!! I have even sat out traps to catch her...




Now this innocent looking girl is coming next weekend to see me...I was at Hospice thrift store the other day and found some new bait to catch her with...I know she'll love this stain glass window...she'll spot it right away and maybe I can catch her then...

If not maybe this will work...She loves to cook and this timer might do the trick...


Or maybe this sweet little chicken with her chicks...



Or maybe this little basket...do you think this might catch her???


It's has a bread basket to match it...



An a Large Pasta bowl...I brought all of these home for my traps...So wish me luck girls that I can catch this Roo thief next week...Now Please go by and See "Barb at Bella Vista" to see all the lucky gals that don't have a Daughter like my Dawna and have to hang their heads in shame...ha ha!!

May all of you have a GREAT weekend..


Hugs and smiles Glria

Lynn said...

Oh! I have one of those too!!
She steals my stepping stones, though!

Oh, well. You'll have fun with her next week anyway!

Here is an important question.
HOW did you get those little hearts to dance down your banner!
...and do they have stars!??

Beverly said...

Gloria, you made me smile. This post is adorable. I know your roo thief must adore you - and all of your traps. ;-)

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

I don't know...but they would certainly catch me! I would end in the hoosegow in no time!! Adorable Roosters, Gloria!! Wow!! :)

onlymehere said...

I love this post! It made me laugh out loud. I hope the traps work and you can catch this Roo thief before she strikes again!

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

Hi Gloria! Well you have teh bait but what about the trap? You obviously have a very clever roo thief ...she's just gonna walk away w/ your bait. ;o)

Cute post!

salmagundi said...

Oh! now Gloria! You can't fool us - we know you delight in daughter's attempt to steal your roosters. I bet you willingly give them to her. Loved that bread basket. I might have to hold on to that if I was you. Sally

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hey, sweetheart.....I am so glad you made it!!!! Your daughter is still a cutie....even though she steals all the roosters! Ha. The stained glass is awesome and all the pictures are just wonderful.

Gloria, thanks for joining and helping me in the celebration...you sweet thing!

Hugs, hugs, Barb

Your roosters are all great. I can so relate to your post. My daughter has her whole kitchen in the rooster theme. If it goes in the kitchen, it has a rooster on it. When she comes to visit, she shops my house. The only way I can keep my roosters is to purchase two and give her one. That seems to work.

squawmama said...

Hi mom,
I will have you know it took me a lot of years to become a good rooster thief but on the other side of the things I guess I would rather get caught by u then the people in Walmart nudge nudge wink wink.(lol) Love u lots and cant wait 2 see u

Beansieleigh said...

Hi Gloria! My gosh.. I don't know about Dawna, but I'm thinking it's a good thing I'm not your daughter, because if Dawna doesn't take them, I would! (0; I guess you wouldn't want to have to set traps out in TOO MANY directions!! Love everything you have here today! Hope you're enjoying all the rooster festivities today, and that you have a wonderful weekend! ~tina

Lisa said...

Oh I love the basket with the matching plate and bowl! They're just precious! AND KEEP THAT FOX OUT OF THE COOP!

What a fun post. You, as well as your daughter have very good taste.

Lara Harris said...

Lovin the chicken dance in honor of the rooster party nonetheless!:)

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

I think I could become a big rooster lover if I had that matching set, especially that adorable little basket with the blue handle. Too cute! And the yellow checked box it comes in is the frosting on the cake! :)

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

This is a cute rooster post! I'm sure you'll nab that bad thief with all those neat things!! LOL! I've never seen a rooster timer!

Whew! How will we ever get around to see all the great roosters posted!

So fun!

Katherine

Joy said...

What a cute post! You found some
really cute rooster things.

Bill said...

Hi Gloria,
Every time I stop by to see what you've been up to (and that could be just about ANYTHING!), or see that you've left one of your generous comments on something I've posted ... it always makes my day!

I've met a lot of special people since I started blogging back in June ... but you're definitely one of my very favorites. Your warm heart and your one-of-a-kind humor come through in everything you do!

Bill

Ms. Bake-it said...

Hello Gloria,

What a great post! I am thinking you could catch more than one "roo" thief with that bounty! I know I would definitely be tempted!

~ Tracy

Tootsie said...

just kidding...you guys have a wonderful time. I hope you say hi to her for me!!!
luv you

shirley said...

Gloria, you brought a smile to my face as I read your quest to catch this Roosters. I hope she is smarter than the fox and knows the trap has been set! I love roosters too!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Hey, you caught me in your trap, too, Gloria! Loved the roos.

Loved the wedding plate you made for Josh and his bride. So sweet.

Checking in from my break and sending much love your way...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Sarah said...

Gloria, It's Sunday and I'm still going to rooster parties. Sorry to be so late. I'm so glad I didn't miss your party because it is such a clever one. You are too funny! Love the great pieces of pottery you found. Who makes these? I may need to find the source. Stop by hyacinthforthesoul when you have time. There are plenty of roosters there. Don't tell your fox!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Gloria, What a cute post! I think I'm going to try to get there before that pretty daughter of yours and pack up some of these roosters in my purse (I do have a plate that matches that cute basket and the other things in that set). I know the police will be hot on Dawn's trail as I make my get away with those wonderful roosters (I sure hope I can find a purse big enough for that stained glass, because I'm lovin that!) laurie

juls4real said...

Oh, yes. You will catch that roo thief with those treasures. Cute blog. You are funn.
Juls

Stella said...

What great bait you have set out to catch the fox. Rally like the basket. So unique. Thanks for sharing.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Oh Gloria,
Looks like the daughter inherited your good taste! Ha! I love your roosters, that stained glass is wonderful no wonder she's a thief! Your a very kind MOM for letting her sneak those out of your home. That hospital store has the best deals ever! Hugs, Cindy

Irma's Rose Cottage said...

Still making the rounds! What lovely rooster items! Love the stained glass window.

Lady Katherine said...

That was so funny! I love the stain glass, do not let her take it! I wanted a stained glass Rooster for yours, but you know me I want to make my own! lol Love the pasta and the bread dishes! Adore the Bread dish! Yes, I do! lol

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

I'm still getting to the rooster parties!!! I hope I make them all before Friday! & I'm so glad I made yours!

Haha! hm...wonder if any of your roosters did the trick? You'll have to let inquiring minds know, which rooster was the winning bit of bait?

Blessings & Aloha!
