Ruling The Roost

What's It Wednesday #183
Presenting the newest additions to the coop, "Poulets Sur Chaise". This pair are a gift from a dear friend for my upcoming birthday!


Monsieur 

Madame

I just love them on their elegant chairs. We plan to paint the frames a glossy black to match my kitchen better. What a thoughtful gift! 


They'll be right at home with M. Coq Blanc, I'm sure he's a little French too, don't you think?


Who's a pretty bird? Why this painted rooster of course! He usually sits up high above the cabinets, I brought him down for his close up.


Does this mean he rules the roost?


This little guy is the oldest in the coop, he's an old snow globe. Look how thick the glass is, so cool. The older I get, the more I love old things. Hmm, think there's any correlation?


These are the smallest hens in the house. Handpainted on a cute little egg carton shaped box by Limoges. Now those are French hens for sure!


Even the clasp is shaped like a hen.


These working girls even lay, fresh eggs for sure! While they all hold a place in my heart, I'm still the one that rules the roost!
Hugs,
Patti

Thanks for hosting! Love your new pictures - how sweet of your friend. And you've definitely shown how well they will go with the other hen related items you already have. Enjoy!

Madame and Monsieur are certainly an elegant pair. What a thoughtful gift!
There are plenty of hens and roosters living here at Hyacinths, but as with you, I'm the one who rules the roost!
Thanks for sharing your birds, and thank you for hosting. Hope you have a Happy Birthday, Patti.

Teresa said...

Enjoy your Birthday knowing that you are loved and cherished by family and friends that understand your heart and likes.
Amazing collection but then you don't need much to start a collection of lovely things with amazing items.
After watching you I now know I'm not a collector from the heart. You Are!
Enjoy and have fun!

Patricia Krank said...

Maybe there is a correlation between age and liking old things because it's happening here too Patti! Love all your sweet roosters but I am especially smitten with that limoges box of eggs. LOVE!
Blessings dear lady,
Patti

Hi Patti,

A beautiful collection of birds, in prints, painted on porcelain, and of course looking as cute as ever as crockery! My favourite, for its creativity is the Limoges egg carton and eggs - how imaginative! Thanks for hosting and have a lovely week!

Carol @ The Red Painted Cottage said...

Thank you, so very much, for featuring our fall entry this week. I love all your chicks and roosters, mainly because I've got a collection, too. I think my husband is so glad we live in a condo, because this way I can't have my chickens and sheep that I would so much love to have. LOL! Have a beautiful week, my friends.

Creations by Marie Antoinette and Edie Marie said...

Hi Patti! My mom was a collector of roosters and hens and they always make me think of her. I have a few from her collection and they are so dear to me. Yours are so cool! Especially the Limoge! Amazing!! Hope you've all had a fabulous summer. Blessings always, Edie Marie and Marie Antoinette

Thanks for hosting such wonderful events!

What great vignettes. My mother in law loves roosters. I wish she would let me do some decorating with them. They are just all over the place-no rhymne nor reason. She has lots of antiques that she could work with.
