Rooster Tablescape Thursday

Is Tablescape Thursday, hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch, again and I am using my daily rooster dishes!
Years ago my Mom found these set of Rooster dishes for 8 at a garage sale. I am not embarrassed to admit that I begged and begged Mom for the dishes until she couldn't stand it anymore, and finally gave them to me. That was the beginning of my Rooster addiction. Thank you Mother!!!
A very beautiful Rooster dinner dish!

Nice!!!

The tall Princess House glasses are placed on pumpkin doilies from $ Store.

The crotchet doilie was made by my Mom. Thank you Mom! The bowl holding the fruit is from Big Lots. The Rooster place mats are from Pier Imports. My baby-sister Veronica gave them to me for another of my birthdays to go with these dishes.

Another thrifty find: linen napkin!

A Rooster S&P shaker set next to one of two votives. I forgotten I even had these votives...it's nice to find treasures in your own home!!!

An aerial view...LOL!
Thank you Susan. I am having fun tablescaping. I hope the more I do these , I'll get better!!!

  1. Oh I love, love, love our rooster dishes and placemats. I have a thing for roosters too. Your table is just lovely. I really like the petty bowl of fruit and the salt and pepper are so cute. You've done a beautiful job. Hugs, Marty
