Rooster party...Roosters for sale...

Roosters for sale was on the sign in the antique shop window on the square in Maritta, Georgia. I went into Dupres antique shop to have a look around. Since I do not own any Rooster plates or tablecloths etc. I thought I would snap some photos to share with all my blog friends in honor of the Rooster party hosted by Barb. For more Rooster items please go HERE.

A very green Rooster with beady white eyes greeted me upon entering the store. He was certainly ruffling my feathers with that price tag of $50.

A pair of Roosters to use as bookends to hold your antique Readers Digest condensed novels.
Does anyone remember reading those back in the hay days?

A Metal Rooster to sit on your kitchen counter.

An elegant white and gold french Chanticleer.

This lamp and cute toile lampshade would be a great addition to one's country french style of decorating.

A pretty pink hand sewn pillow made by a fellow Rooster lover.

For those of you who follow my blog you know that if I had a Rooster I would display him on a large white platter. He would be stuffed and trussed and be roasted to perfection.



  1. You were in Marietta at the antique shops and didn't call me!!! Next time call me!! as for Variety...they have called and I am availible to both cook and sing onstage when Ragtime opens...Mr. DeMille I am ready for my closeup!

  2. I feel so guilty, we chicken for dinner!

  3. What a wonderful and clever post. You are a very talented and creative person.

  4. Hi Joyce,
    Just a small reminder:
    If you want to put the pudding in flowers shaped moulds, is better to add in the agar agar powder~so that the pudding is firm enough for removing from the moulds.
    Thank you :D

  5. The roosters are so cute and pretty!

  6. Hi Joyce,
    Love those roosters, especially the French coq and the lamp, which could find a home with me anyday.

  11. Hi Joyce,
    I share your sentiments about roosters!

    I never knew so many people collected them!

    Great idea, taking pics of them in the antique store!

    We are getting the storm Danny...lots of rain, hope the winds don't pick up!

  12. I adore your rooster collection...I would have to go out and buy something if I was playing roosters around this house...tee hee..well maybe my husband! Have a great day...thanks for sharing all those!

  13. Cute roosters. I read down some of your other posts...your blog looks...delicious! I will be back to read more.

  14. I think I would have walked out with some of those roosters. You have a very nice blog and the pictures of the kids... priceless.


  15. I enjoyed looking at all of the roosters. Thanks for sharing.

    p.s. I love to bake too, especially during Christmas when I bake all those traditional German cookies and stollen ;-) Cant't wait!

  16. Roosters for SALE! I'll be surprised if they have any left now. :-)
    Thanks for sharing in the fun! Hope to see you at my place for some more rooster fun.

  17. Smart cookie! I like the metal one best .. tho I dont think I want one ... I do have a carved wooden pigeon ..

  18. Joyce,

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I live "down South" just about 30 miles north of a small town called Lakeland. That's where Bank's Lake National Wildlife Refuge is.

    Oh, I love the picture of the Lebkuchen Herzen on your avatar. I remember buying those as a child in Germany...

  19. I love the rooster lamop with the toile shade - gorgeous! Oh, and I have Italian aunts too. Linda

  20. Hi Joyce....Yours must have been one of the few I missed, I did start early and some of you hadn't posted yet. You have some great roosters there, but I have just gotta get me one of those rooster lamps...I am so envious you have one!
    Thanks for stopping by.
    P.S. The bear in a pirate outfit has been and gone already ... but you never know when the Depp addiction will revive the urge to make another!! LOL!!!

  21. Hello Joyce,

    Great post! There were a couple I would have gotten to add to my collection.

  27. My granddaughter's birthday was this weekend & I was busy w/ preparations so have been unable to visit the party goers until now...sorry!

    I'm not a rooster collector either but managed to find a couple. You were clever to do apost w/ them in antique stores!

  28. Oh, I just love roosters and kitchen is covered with them on every flat surface and wall ! May have something to do with the fact that my nickname was Chicky in High School. Cute post !

  29. Kewl collection of roosters and WONDERFUL wordless Wednesday 'Kiss' ;--)
