Farmhouse Vintage, Tablecloth, Roosters, kitchen goodies




Hey Everyone! Well it is a beautiful (cold) day here and I'm warming up (trying to...).

For breakfast we had eggs, and cottage potatoes, juice...yummy way to start the day!





I have a wonderful daughter-in-love. Her father and mother were turning over some property, cleaning out sheds and happened upon several boxes of vintage chicken items. They knew that I have collected rooster/chicken things since I have been married. This was like Christmas all over again to me...because they sent all of it to me! Several egg and little chicken salt and pepper shakers.


The dishes I bought at Kohl's several years ago. The glasses are vintage and from hubby's grandmother.


Below are some pillows I made out of a vintage tablecloth that had several stains on it. I just cut around the stains and used the pretty part!



Could this VINTAGE goodness get any sweeter? I'm lovin' it!





















I found these at a great thrift store...tons of them. Can't wait to use them for Easter. I often turn them over and set a small candle in them...or little candies.

Today I have the pleasure of playing along with Susan @

and Leigh @
THANKS SO MUCH FOR COMING BY!
BLESSINGS,
DEBBIE

Hi Debbie! OH, you lucky gal you! Look at all these little darling chickie things! I love how you've set everything up. Your plates are so cute and how smart of you to use the vintage tablecloth for your sweet pillows. You're just good at stuff, sweet friend! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Your entire tablescape is so lovely. Your chickees really give everything a farm vintage look with
some romantic country french touches.

You are lucky to have such nice people to think of you and give you the vintage pieces.

hugs

Oh this is so cute -- we can always count on you to set a cheerful table that makes us smile. I love all your vintage treasures -- I guess my love of vintage may just be because I'm a bit "vintage" myself!

Nancy's Daily Dish said...

Wow, Debbie! What a lovely table you've created with all of your rooster beauties! I noticed you called your daughter-in-law "daughter-in-love" My mother-in-law calls me that too, and I think it's so sweet. Thanks for sharing and happy TT to you!

K-Sue said...

That little chick could NOT be any cuter. What a fun tablescape. How nice of the in-laws (if you call her the daughter-in-love, are her folks the in-loves?) to send the goodies to you.

Donna said...

Well, you certainly hit a vintage bonanza. Good for you, and beautiful country, cozy tablescape.
