Friday's Faves...Cockadoodledo, some roosters for you!

When I got an Amazon gift card for Christmas I looked and looked and took my time deciding what I wanted to spend it on.
A new book?
I already received four new books for Christmas and have another stack of books that I already had that I need to finish.
What about something I need for the house?
New bath towels?
Nah, gift cards are for fun things, right?
New shoes?
Not a big enough gift card for those.
And then I remembered this guy that I'd been eyeing for quite some time...

I'm rather fond of him.

And there was still enough on the gift card to get a little something else.
You know my weakness for cute cups, 
and what could be better than a cute cup by Cath Kidston?
Why one with roosters on it, of course!

(Pretend you don't see my embarrassing rain spotted kitchen window.)

What says "Good Morning!" better than a cheerful chicken on your coffee cup?

The new guys are joining the flock which includes this Goodwill pair I already had.

My favorite rooster of all, used to belong to Mama.

He was carved by my uncle, who was a pilot in WWII and, at one time, a prisoner of war.

While the other roosters are fun and add a bit of whimsy to my kitchen, 
this one is a real treasure to me.

Well, it's almost Friday, friends.
I hope you have a
and a
BLESSED weekend!

  1. Aren't you smart! I always have things in my Amazon bucket too but I never really thought of it as a wish list. Love your cutting board for the looks and the utility. That cup is to die for!

  2. I just saw that picture of you on the sidebar. Is that new? Gorgeous!!

    1. Thanks Stacey! It's just an iPhone selfie, but newer than my old blog photo. I have several pro. photographer friends and really should have a good photo taken sometime!

  3. I love it. especially your mom's rooster. I think it's always extra special to decorate a home with treasures that MEAN something.

    1. I agree! I'd rather have unique and meaningful things in my home too.

  4. What a fun post! I so enjoyed seeing your gifts and gift of creativity. Love you!

  5. You always amaze me, my friend. You find the neatest things and you have a great way to put it all together. See you (and your chickens soon).

  6. Fun roosters! I got a Pier 1 gift card for Christmas and haven't spent it. Maybe you need to come over and see my house, then go shop with me....

  7. Ooh, I love all of it. This makes me a little sad, though. When we repainted/decorated our kitchen years ago I sold all my rooster/chicken paraphernalia except for a couple of things at a yard sale. One of the items was a wood rooster weather vane made of wood that stood in the corner. I hate yard sales. ;)

    1. A wood rooster weather vane and you got rid of it??? I'm kind of crying inside for you!

  8. We have roosters too--both live ones and all sorts of decorative ones. Love this china! Have never heard of it. Will click on the link now. Thank you--and I adore your new profile pic! xo

    1. Cath Kidston is English I think and has purses and dishware and all sorts of things.

  9. I know I said it on instagram, but it bears repeating. You are an inspiration! Thankful that God placed you in my life!

    1. I guess it is turning into a collection! Oh my, not another collection!!!

  11. Your house always looks so cheerful. The read this season definitely emphasizes that :-)

  12. bright and cheerful post and I like chicken + rosters - nice touches around your home -- they are all colors and lovely...

  13. Just popped over from "Living from glory to glory" and I just love your cheery rooster collection. They are adorable.

    1. I'm so glad you popped by and took time to comment!
