Cockadoodle doo


Friday was a good day.  I went to Sweet Tea my new favorite consignment
shop.  There he was standing on a table near the window, this handsome fellow!  And, he's a lamp!  Joy, Joy!

I looked at him for a while and walked away.  Looked through the entire store, then went back to look at him again.  He was priced at $19.95.  You know what I did next.....I stood there thinking about it, I don't really need another lamp, I thought.  But there was just something about his stature, the set of his head, then there was that shade......

 Toile.  But I'm still thinking, I really don't need anything else for the house.  It's bursting at the seams already.  "Walk away"  kept ringing in my ears.  I tried, I really did. But alas, I could not leave this handsome fellow.  So, he came home with me and here he is in all his glory!  Isn't he a handsome dude?

 I knew I wanted him in the breakfast nook. So I placed him there and then played with other rooster's until I got the look I wanted.
 Looks pretty, but not quite right.
 So I moved the green hen near him because the color matches so well with the mat and frame on the pictures above the pie safe.
 Yes, this is good!
 Looks good from all angles.  He's a keeper.  In fact I don't know what I did without him!  :)
 While I was having so much fun, I set up a new vignette on my kitchen counter.  Thinking about Thanksgiving.


I'm linking to Marty at A Stroll thru Life for Table Top Tuesday.  Come over and have a look at all the fabulous decor.
