Farmhouse Table Decked out with Roosters

A vintage inspired farm table.  I've been blessed by so many friends and family.
They know I have a bit of a VINTAGE rooster collection...
and hubby has the real chicken collection out in the barn!
so when they see something they
get it for me...or send it my way!
I already have the real ones...they send me the fun ones...that don't make any noise!

My daughter-in-love's parents found a rooster collection with all kinds of old eggs and ceramic roosters in an old shed. They mailed the whole collection to me from Texas. I practically swooned.
Below is a toy muffin pan that I put these old egg salt and pepper shakers in.
I also used vintage red and white enamelware for my centerpiece.
The napkins are vintage red and white check from grandma.

Also for my table topper and some of my cushions I used a vintage red and white tablecloth.
I can't seem to get enough tablecloths. I just love them. The older the better
and if they are red and white...I swoon...again. hahaha
Vintage scale, enamelware pan, green match holder..
A little chicken humor!

My girls outside near the barn...Rhode Island Reds...they lay beautiful brown eggs.
Joining in with this fun party...Vintage Inspiration!

So glad you could come by for a visit!
Come again.

My mom would love your collection as she loves rooster things for the kitchen too. I really like your dishes and the little eggs your daughter's in laws gave you. How nice that they like you enough to think of you!

Oh so many fun things to look at, Debbie! thanks for picture taking and posting!

I love chickens- it's their manure I tire of too quickly! :)

I love your chicken humor! I often wonder what my sense of humor would be like if I hadn't had 4 boys but with boys, it's either get a little warped or be offended! Ha! ♥

Hi Debbie,
What a fun tablescape...Lovin' all the chickens, chicks and eggs...I know my mom would swoon over it too, she loves collecting anything chicken too. I think my favorite is the little chick egg cup in the enamel pot in the last picture. Just too cute. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hugs and Kisses,
