My First "Show Us Your Rooster" Party



This is the first Show Us Your Rooster party I have participated in. Unfortunately, I almost forgot that it was for toady. Thank you, Barb, for hosting this meme.















Please make sure you check out the other roosters and maybe a couple of hens that will attend Show Us Your Rooster party.

Oh what fun. Ritva (on vacation), Aunt Doris, (no computer) and Cilla (will send to her) all have rooster collections. You are so very clever. Love, Brenda

Hi Mimi! Oh, what a wonderful Rooster table you've set! I just found a clear chicken tureen like yours last week. I need another one. Your dishes are so pretty too.
This is so much fun.
Be a sweetie,
shelia :)

OMGoodness. My Mom used to have a collection of those glass hen dishes. She had all different colors, amber, green, blue, clear, etc. I will have to ask her what happened to them.

So many things you have bring back memories of my Moms and Grandmas things. Great table. I'm a Rooster kind of girl too.
