Loving roosters again...



Does this ever happen to you?



You like something~ a certain color or decorating style~ and then you think you have "grown" out of it. So you give most all of those things away, thinking you're done with it~ only to discover to your surprise a few years later that you like it again... Well, this isn't the first time this has happened to me, and I am sure it won't be the last, which is why I am becoming much more discerning about what I give away and what I pack away "for the time being". :)





I found these cute rooster wall hangings at a garage sale over Labor Day weekend...I was just going to buy the one below (to be frugal) but she told me to take the other one as well, which I was happy to do! Total cost: just two dollars!




I also found this sweet milk glass bowl/vase thing at another garage sale the same weekend. ( I am not exactly sure what it's intended for, but I know what I am going to use it for!) For just one dollar, I walked away with something precious! :)






(In the background, you can see the beaded board I have put in so far, although it's not painted yet and I haven't put in the trim at the bottom!) I also found a cute wire basket with a bow at the first garage sale, but want to spray paint it before I show you it! :) Pretty soon, my spray painting days will be over for a few months due to the cooler weather, and I still have SO many things to spray paint, including the drawers to my vintage stove that we are restoring...

I wanted also to apologize for not coming around and saying hello for the last week or two~ the last couple of weeks have been unusually busy. I am hoping things will be calmer this week, so I can find out how you all are doing now! :) I hope you are all having a good new week! :)

Have a good night,

The Roosters are great and I groan when I think of what I 'de-cluttered' away. x

Oh, I soooo know what you mean. I can't believe you got those great roosters for just $2.00!!!! I have been on a big rooster kick since the rooster party where everyone showed their roosters. I now have an inspiration picture from an old Country Home or Living magazine that shows a French Country Rooster themed kitchen that I am in LOVE with. Hmmmm, we will see.

So sweet of you to drop by my blog! I really appreciated your comments! (I'm the girl with the purple bathroom.) Love how you're fixing up your home. It looks great so far, and I can't wait to see more projects- the bead board in particular, I love. I am planning on putting some up all over my house soon...just gotta find the time and funds! Thanks again for stopping by!

I can so relate to that! I think I might want to go a different route in my decorating, but always seem to come back to my red, toile, and roosters. I love both those pieces you bought and what a great deal! have a great weekend!

Amy... I so understand busy! I've been real bad about getting around to everyones blog too. If it wasn't one thing it was another!

But here I am to say "HI!"

I collect roosters (I just started up again myself) My daughter bought me the cutest wooden rooster for my birthday.. I will have to do a post on my roosters!
I love all the buys you found!

Have a blessed weekend,

Robin~♥

It looks like you found some neat things. I use to collect different things but my tastes have changed. I think that's pretty normal.
