Joy of Decorating with Roosters

“All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.”– Ralph Waldo Emerson

A rooster is a great accessory for many French Country homes and kitchens.  I have enjoyed having roosters in my kitchen.  Growing up on a farm we had beautiful roosters..bright gold, deep blue and green, reds, black….  Our rooster would crow at the crack of dawn.  He strutted his beautiful tail feathers like he owned the place.

Bob and I are dining with these roosters.  Bob has named all of them.  I am using my red and green plates as a base and these wonderful salad plates.   I have had these for years.  When I saw them, it was one of those WOW moments.  Just love love these beautiful colors together.

This red stoneware china is by Home, a Christmas gift from Bob years ago.  They are from Bed, Bath and Beyond.

Enjoying our time with the fowl and my backyard is serene and peaceful.
