Hey Friends! It's been quite awhile since I've joined one of Marty's parties (hey that rhymed!) over at A Stroll Through Life. But today, I've got just a little something to share with you that I think a few of you might like to see. What it is you say?
Do you see it? Nope! It's not the cookbook ladies!
Yep! It's the new Roo of course! See, didn't I tell you, you'd like it! Now don't you worry, I am still not going to get caught up in all that Rooster collecting business, no NOT me!
But... I do know a few good Roo's when I see them. Especially since I have been looking at quite a few of them almost everyday for months. We sell this collection and another set at Stein Mart. So, after looking at this set everyday for over 3 months now I finally broke down and bought this decorative plate when it went on sale. I love how the plate is in the shape of a rooster!
Of course, I knew that the black on the rooster would also fit in quite well in my kitchen. I knew exactly where I wanted to display it too, right here in this little nook in my kitchen.
It's over here tucked away with the bread box and cookbooks.
And the cute little clear jar that started out as a pecan jar after seeing you fabulous bloggers using these last year. Then after the nuts were gone it turned into a hot drink packet jar, then quickly became a tervis tumbler "tops" jar. This jar sure is versatile, isn't it?
Anywho, back to my new Roo! Isn't he purrrrty!!!
I am really being so good because there is such a huge collection that goes with him. There is a huge cookie jar, utensil holder, platter, salad plates, salt and pepper shakers, ect. I am trying my best to not to add anything else but the coffee mugs are starting to call my name too. Look out!
I thought he would look wonderful over here by a cookbook so I pulled out a nice comforting one for the winter. Maybe this will give the Mr. a few hints too. Ya think?
Then, when I was trying to figure out what napkin or tea towel I wanted to add to this vignette I remembered my new plaid napkins. I purchased these from work on the day after Christmas sale. They also have black in them so I thought it would look great. What do you think? Still, nice and wintry right?
And because I promised awhile back to show you these but got to busy to do so, here they are!
For those of you who do not know what I'm talking about I bought all of this at 75% off the day after Christmas from Stein Mart. I was surprised they had not already sold but was quite pleased to be able to add them to my home.
I have a set of six placemats and six napkins. I love the red,black,hunter,blue and white in the plaid.
I was also lucky enough to score two sets of silver and red beaded napkin rings at 75% off too for a total of eight each! Can you believe that? I know I can use those napkin rings year round!
Well, that's it! I just wanted to share a little vignette with you all today.
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a little more time to visit many more pretties over at
Have a great day!
