Up until about 4 years ago, I had not particularly cared for roosters...at least in my home. That all changed as I was walking down the street in Santa Fe, NM and spied a store window decorated with the most hilarious conglomeration of roosters. They were so funny that I broke out in laughter...right there on the street. Of course I had to go into the store.... and I purchased my first two roosters.
These roosters are handcarved and painted by Navajo
folk artists. Each one is signed. The red rooster was created by Edith and Guy John.
And thus began my love of "humorous" roosters and chickens.
These guys were found at Home Goods. The chalkboard rooster has been the recipient of unusual writings.
The polkadot chicken looks as though it's ready to eat...or getting ready to sit on her nest. At Christmas, my DIL fashioned a nest with greenery and placed a few red ornaments in it. It was adorable! and a real conversation piece.
These two chicks were a gift from D and C. They were purchased in Switzerland. A third chick was a part of the set, but she was a snack for Hurley.
The yellow rooster is from Pier One... and it was a gift from C., my daughter-in-law. She thought it would make me laugh... and she was right!
The black and white sugar and creamer were a gift from my sister. She found them at Home Goods.

I painted this whimsical rooster when I was housebound... it was the catalyst for my small collection. The translation of the saying at the bottom... Oh what a beautiful morning! Through the fall and spring, this painting decorates our breakfast room.
These two small paintings are also mine... and the last of my
Thank you for stopping by today... hope my roosters made you smile!
