~ROO Overload~


Girls, I have put up a good fight..But will tell you every Roo that comes into my house ends up at my Daughter Dawna's home...











These are a few of the Rooster I did have....Love this cabinet I got this for Dawna a few years ago just because I love her...The Tassel I made for it



This Daughter has a Roo Overload in her kitchen...The Rhode Island Red Rooster is a real one...I had that for many years in my kitchen with the egg crate and egg scale..If you look real close in the crate you will also see an Ostrich egg from when I had my Ostrich farm...The sweet little Roo Lamp Candace made for her Mama last Christmas...She found the Roo at Ross...I think it turned out darling...The Cookie jar is an Antique one that Dawna stole from my house years ago ha ha!!



Look Marty even a cloche with a Roo under it ha ha!! Every surface in her Kitchen and dining room is covered by Rooster's and her love of Sun flowers...I hope you enjoyed a little tour of my Dawna's Kitchen...All these Rooster's really do fit her personality she's the one I told you that came out swinging a purse and chewing gum a very "Cocky" girl ha ha!!





Thanks to our wonderful hostess Barb...for yet another fun Roo Party...Please go by and see her and all the great gals today for a Rooster good time...

Until next time from my mountain to yours,

Hugs and Smiles Gl♥ria

ps. I hope to share with you all the photos of Candace's baby shower at the tea room we are having this Saturday...All my daughter are coming in tomorrow YIPPEE!! haven't seen all of them together since last Sept. I have a feeling I'm going to need some Old Red Robe time after they leave ha ha!!

Love all those roos even though they flew the coop. Love the chest you gave her. So cute.

Sherry said...

Gloria,
You crack me up. (egg joke:0) No, really you are so funny. Love all the roosters. I found this so funny because my Mom gave me all of my roosters. I never bought one of them. I have never really been into roosters, but lately I have gained a new appreciation for them. Just love to visit you it is always fun. Have a great time at you baby shower!
Sherry

Glenda/MidSouth said...

That is a lot of roosters. The real one looks like he has been in a few fights. :D Know what you mean about things ending up at daughter's house. She calls it shopping at Mom's house.

Sharing with Sherri said...

Oh you're such a good egg Gloria(nother egg joke:) for buying that darling cabinet "just because" for your daughter! Lucky Girl! It's so cute! Love how all the rest of her cute lil roo's, and sunflowers look so cute together too!

Hugs, Sherri:)

Hi Gloria, oh, oh, I love them all! All that red is making me smile from ear to ear. Such lovely displays. That poor rooster in the first picture is a little worse for wear, huh? Ha.

Well now Miss Gloria, I am loving your daughter's ROO rooms. Very cute - she has her Mom's sense of style!

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

Hi Gloria. Thanks for stopping by my rooster collection. I checked my comments per your suggestion and they seem fine. Nothing blurry so I'm not sure what your computer is seeing. However, with computers you just never know!

Debbie Moore at Slice of Pie Entertaining and Cookbooks said...

Thanks for sharing ... your shared roosters! I love it when my daughter and I like the same things. Beautiful post!

Lots of cute roos! I really like the coffee sign and that lamp but that poor guy in the first pic! What happened?

What a fun party!

bj said...

Hello, dear sister friend,

I hope you are feeling good. And, staying cool up there on your mountain top.

Now, I am lovin' all your girl's roosters. They are so so cute.

Take care and know that you are loved.

Great rooster collection. Trish

Dawn said...

Dawna has a great collection! I've got a feeling most roos come into your house knowing it's just a stop-over! Love the photo of Dawna. She looks so happy, must have made a big roo score that day!

Have a great day with Candace and all the girls!

Bonnie@Creative Decorating said...

Oh Gloria! I changed my comment set up on my blog so make sure you come by and test it out for me!! Thank you again for letting me know. After you said something there were others that mentioned as well. Funny how that works!! Everyone just lives with it until someone else speaks up!!! lol

Nancy's Notes said...

Dawna sure had a great great rooster collection, each one is just adorable! I love all the vibrant colors and have to say the cabinet is just incredible!

Have a great time with your girls!

Nancy

Lori E said...

This is my favorite collection of "Roos" I have ever seen. Each and every one is fabulous. They all suit my country style. Keep your doors locked and warn your daughter because I just may have to come by and snag a few for my collection. I didn't post any this time because they are all the same as the ones I had last time.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Oh my, she really does have a ton of roosters, and I love the one under the cloche. Hope you have fun at the shower today.
Thanks for your great comments about our trip to Calif. We had the best time. I laughed so hard my jaws were hurting. Great fun to be with good friends. Hugs, Marty

Manuela@TPOH said...

I totally enjoyed seeing all of Dawn's "roos"! That cabinet is just so pretty and those teeny roos underneath are cute!

someplace in thyme said...

I love all your roos, but esp the stained glass rooster. That girlfriend is gorgeous. What the heck happened to the little man in the first picture. It looks like he lost his feathers in a fight, poor guy. Loved your post, Char

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

Well, Gloria, you are going to have to keep your roosters under lock and key! Daughter certainly has a great collection! Love all the red. Linda

Janean said...

Liliane de Paula said...

Dear Gloria, o que fizeram com aquel galo sem pena? Arrancaram as penas do galo? Não acredito que tenham feito essa maldade.

SmilingSally said...

I can't imagine a more Roo-ster collection than your daughter's!

JKW said...

I love the worn out rooster, whew, I feel like that a lot of the time. I've lost 2 close friends the first 12 days of Aug, so I'm a bit late getting around to the parties. Blessings, Janet
