Something to Crow About



Come on all you rooster maniacs, let's have some lunch...........




Shhhhhhhhhhhhh.... don't tell anyone, we're having chicken salad !





I found the black chargers at a garage sale for .50 each, the perfect accent for these hand painted rooster luncheon plates..







These dinner plates were from a store here in Atlanta called Old Time Pottery.






















Thanks for coming by!


Thank you Susan at BetweenNapsOnThePorch.blogspot.com for hosting this weekly event. Please visit her Blog for many beautiful tablescapes!


You'll also see me over at Rhoda's Fall Party.....Southern Hospitality

I cannot believe you have roosters to match your roosters! And I thought I was a collector! Those rooster plates are fabulous. Did you make the stacked pumpkin centerpiece? Love it. I love all of this! If you serve chicken salad very often, you may run out of roosters! Laurie (bargainhunr)

Where in the world did you get that song? LOL Too cute! Love your rooster plates. Let's see, I'll have a spinach omelete and a pumpkin muffin please. I've got a small bag here with me too so you better hide the rest of the pumpkin muffins!

Have a fun day.

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

This is so beautiful! You have completely captured an autumn day with this tablescape. Those Rooster plates on black charges are beyond perfect. I really need to get my act together and make some beautiful tables instead of living in Dixie. Just kidding! I do own very nice PB White dishes and beautiful China, but I surely don't put it together...Well, you get the idea.
I LOVE every last detail of this. Thanks!!!

Chris said...

Just beautiful. You are so gifted.

Hugs,
Chris

Stacey said...

Wow I love that everything coordinates instead of being exactly the same. It's so pretty. We all do love those roosters!! :)

salmagundi said...

That was wonderful!! Love the colors, love all the roosters - all put together with your talented hand. BTW, I'm not THAT famous as a quiltmaker. I just made a lot quilts over the years, and was fortunate to work with some great editors. Sally

Carrie said...

All the ceramic accessories added to the lovely plates make for a very festive fall table.

Sidney said...

Your home is gorgeous! I stop by periodically just to drool over all of your wonderful decor ideas. I especially loved the reupholstered chairs...what a wonderful job you did!

santamaker said...

Thanks so much, ladies for your wonderful comments. I can't lie, I didn't make the pumpkin topiary...bought it at Michaels, a couple of years ago! I had a lot of fun with this setting... You can't take anything too seriously when your house is running amuck with chickens and roosters! I typed in chickens in the playlist search thing and found with wacky song... I like a little levity now and then!

Witoka said...

It was lovely to visit your site. I had fun looking at all the pretty pictures.

Myrna said...

Girl--you take the cake on the fall decorating! Beautiful!!

Jannet said...

I'm a rooster maniac too and absolutely looooove your table.

Glenda said...

The bright colors in that rooster tail would make anyone smile and be happy. I think it ties everything together, especially the black with in your chargers and plates and the oranges and yellows of the pumpkins.

Picket said...

Morning girl...do I even need to say how much I loved this glorious...eye candy filled...rooster stuffed post!!!! This was so pretty and I love that you had that black charger under those pretty plates like that..ohhhh weee...did I mention I loved it!!!! lol lol

nikkicrumpet said...

Ummmm Yeah...a cider donut for that yellow chair you just finished!!! Hey there is a deal for MEEEEE! I'm willing to take that bet...I love Korto's stuff...but from the little glimpses I got of her collection I wasn't to impressed. I mean even Tim thought that one dress looked like a women's privates lol. And her wedding dress was a disaster! Maybe they didn't show much of her collection because it is good. I thought the glimpses of LeAnns was interesting..but they all seemed to look alike. And you're right...Kenley is BAT CRAP CRAZY. That girl needs to know when to just shut up! I'm gonna lay my donut on......dang this is hard....chit.....errrrr....aaaaaa.......LeAnne. However I can always come back and delete this comment if I'm wrong hehehehehe. Now I just have to convince my hubby to let me watch it instead of the Dodger playoff game. HMMMM wonder who will win this battle!

Pear tree cottage! said...

Lilly's Life said...

Wow that looks amazing, how clever you are. I so wish we celebrated this day here - another reason to decorate!

Diane said...

Hey Rooster Lady, you've still got me looking at roosters!
I stopped by Ross today looking for lampshades & saw SQUARE ROOSTER PLATES. They really were beautiful plates & I immediately thought of you! I resisted buying any roosters though. With all the stuff I've collected, I'm not going down the rooster road... :0} Diane

nikkicrumpet said...

Hey...they are pretty similar...except I'd kill to have those wonderful dormer windows up on top!! I've always thought the front of ours was too stark. It's pretty cool though how they both sit up on a hill and are the same style and color!
Oh and NO DONUTS FOR YOU! Korto did not get robbed...her stuff was pretty...but leeann's was modern and innovative and pretty dang cool! Can I pick em or what? And I have no problem cutting out the floor and removing MY chair...no problem whatsoever! lol Have a great night...I'm gonna go sulk now that we have to wait a whole year for it to start again...*sigh*

nannykim at spindle cottage said...

the black really does set off those plates!! BUT how dare you eat chicken salad on them!! Yikes--it might set those roosters to "a" crowing!!
