rise and shine...

It's Rooster party time over at Bella Vista...

A time for us to dress up our fowl finery and strut our stuff...

As I was thinking about gathering my chickens and roosters to share, I decided on a nice, leisurely breakfast stroll...


I set up our kitchen table for a nice, Sunday country breakfast...


I'm thinking eggs, bacon, fried potatoes, a nice side of fruit and toast or biscuits with honey...yummo


My weekday breakfast bar...


always starts with a cup of coffee...


just a bowl of cereal and juice will do...


When it's time for Saturday morning coffee...


I gotta have a comfy chair to settle in a while...


You know, until sweet Barb put out the call, I hadn't realized how many roosters I had around the house...


They're everywhere...
On plates...


In prints...


Even on aprons...


Such a fun party.  Thanks Barb, for inviting me.  I can't wait to go mingle with your other guests.


See you at the party,

Patty

Hi Patty!
Thanks for letting me know about the silhouette machine...I have put my name in and said a little prayer. :) Actually there are several different blogs giving them away, I think I put my name in about 5 different ones. (and said 5 little prayers LOL)
I love all your little roosters, they're so charming..oh and your aprons are SO sweet! I just love old aprons, but I try to find ones with pink in them. :)
I read your last post and I too am a hoarder. I have tried to deny it, but it's the truth. I am just blessed that I hoard in my garage and not in my house :) hee hee hee I have a craft closet that is in desperate need of a going through. I did it a couple of months ago, but ended up not getting totally finished and need to do it right this time. I think I will wait and see if I win any of the silhouette machines so I can make it pretty and organized as I go. :)
Hope you have a great day!
Oh, I still can't hear out of my right ear, but headache is feeling better...after FIVE days!! URGH!
Love ya girlie

Oh, I love your kitchen roosters! Your ceramic rooster reminds me of the one my grandparents had when I was growing up. Such sweet family memories. Thank you for a delightful visit. Have a blessed and rooster-ific week. :)

What an adorable house you have. I love your breakfast bar...and your roosters are all adorable. You sure know how to make things look pretty.

I just heard yesterday that a blogging friend woke Thursday morning and her sweet husband had moved on to Heaven. I can't even imagine life without MR. SWEET...
