Something To Crow About...

Just for today, Rabbit Run Cottage will become the The Red Rooster Inn!
A warm welcome to all of you!
Did you know that chickens are very social creatures? Uh huh. It's true. Must be just one of the reasons we all love them, especially the male of that particular species, the rooster. He is terribly protective of his family and struts around, as proud as a peacock...er...rooster...because he KNOWS he is one gorgeous guy. Whether he be Foghorn Leghorn or Rooster Cogburn...um...wait. Rooster Cogburn was actually NOT a chicken but John Wayne right? Strike that. So whether he be as handsome as old Foghorn Leghorn himself, he is usually a pretty happy fella, not often found in a *fowl* mood! And why shouldn't he be? Why chickens have been around for 5,000 years or so & they will be around for 5,000 more!
Today we celebrate all things rooster by strutting around
bloggie world & showing off our collections of roosters.
Let me thank our wonderful and very gracious hostess, Barb at Bella Vista,
for her hospitality! Let's all send a rousing cock~a~doodle~doo out to Barb!
I thought that showing you 5,987 pictures of all the feathered creatures residing at Rabbit Run...er...The Red Rooster Inn would get tedious. You see, from the floor...
...to the ceiling, roosters abound here. The silly birds just seem to flock here in droves. Thankfully our roosters are all terribly well behaved. For roosters that is. Not one has been seen spitting on the floor or the walls. If you have seen a rooster spit on the walls you would understand my delight at this fact. Messy, very, very messy. Ahem. So instead of showing you each and every one of these *fowl* creatures, I thought I would give you a peek at our *brighter* birds. Uh huh. The rooster lamps. These lamps are found roosting in the living room...
The powder room...
The laundry room...
The kitchen...
...and the kitchen...
...AND the kitchen...
...whew...and the kitchen!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this teensy look at a few of the *fowl* things living at
at the blog formerly known as, and soon to be known as again, Rabbit Run Cottage! I hope you'll come back for another visit soon! The roosters will be waiting...
Love and Hugs,
Susie Q

Nice Roosters Sue. I think I only have one rooster (such a sacriledge) and it matches your blue rooster tassel, actually I believe they are rooster twins (must have been a double yolk, huh?).

Darling! Is that a phone with a real wall cord, Sue? Wow. Didn't know they made those any more. :) Actually, i'm laughing to myself b/c at our beach house, a wall phone was left behind, and my daughter (11) thinks it's the c.o.o.l.e.s.t. thing.

your home is so dang cute. every scrap.

Hi Sue! I smiled the whole time I was reading your post! Your rooster lamps are terrific, but the chandelier takes the cake. It would be perfect in my kitchen... I got a good laugh from your spitting sign too. Have fun today!

Oh, I am totally green with envy over all of your wonderful rooster lamps. I have hunted for one for the longest time, but all I can find seem either way too expensive, or just tacky. Yours are all such a delight. Love everyone of them. Thanks so much for stopping by today and your most gracious comments. I look forward to more visits. Hugs, Marty

Sue said...

The next time I come over for hydrangeas, I'm absconding with one of those lamps from the kitchen. It'll have to be a big enough purse to sneak it past everyone, though, huh? I forgot to take a pic of my spoon holder you gave me... smack me up side the head, ok?
lots of hugs, Sue and Rex Goliath, the 47 pound rooster...

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Hi Susie Q! Loved seeing all your fine feathered friends at your home. Just gawgeous! I only had one little rooster lamp, which was in my kitchen. I grew tired of him....I know hard to believe....painted him white and sold him on ebay. :) Yes M'am I sure did. :). We are in the process of building a Romantic Roost also known as a chicken coop but don't think there is going to be a struttin' rooster around.

JKW said...

Beautiful roosters, the lamps are so adorable. Blessings, Janet
