Cluck,cluck,cluck……roosters in the kitchen!

 

A few years ago I got rid of all my

chickens in the kitchen since they were no longer “in style.”

I instantly regretted my decision and ever since then

they have been finding their way back in.

Over the weekend I found this one

at my favorite antique mall,

Mission Road Antique Mall.

Although he is meant

for the great outdoors I couldn’t stand

putting him out there and

risk him loosing more of his wonderful paint.

This last year I've gotten rid of all my roosters too. If I found one as nice as yours I would add him to my kitchen in a heart beat! I miss my roosters, but I am putting a very large cow sign in my ktchen so I don't want a whole barnyard in there. lol! LOVE your new rooster!

Des,
Love your Roo he is awesome. Glad you found him and he looks pretty nice on the counter. Every kitchen needs a roo or two.

He's a cutie! Sometimes we all have regrets of getting rid of stuff and later realizing we should of kept something. I part with a lot at consignment stores so I at least know it's going to a good home.

they went out of style? I didn't get the memo (thank goodness!).. I have an entire cement barnyard over here!

Oh Deserae, I know what you mean....I used to LOVE chickens and roosters in the kitchen, but then they kind of went out of style, and I have been wanting to bring them back to my kitchen too! Your chicken looks so cute in your kitchen. It adds a special touch to that space. What a charming kitchen you have.

love,

What a great find Des, and I love them and I don't care if they go out of style. I always have to have some in the house.

I too gave away my collection a few years back and am now thinking I should have given them a coat of white paint and kept them. Your new find is a great one!

Oh Des, what a sweet find. He's so pretty. Agreed, he can't be outside.
Sigh... like so many of us, I got rid of my chickens, when we built the new home and moved. I have regretted it ever since. I kept 1 from my Mr.'s grandmother. Slowly he has been getting a brood ...
Hugs, Gee

I love him!!! And anyway, style is about sharing what we love ~ not what others say is 'in' or 'out'.

I have garden statuary bunnies in our cottage that for years were in my garden, and now have a special place in our home.
