R is for Rooster

Not really sure why I love roosters in my kitchen.
Maybe because I was born in the year of the rooster?

 Or because rooster in Italian sounds similar to my last name--if my name had an o after it? (Gallo)
Gift from brother
Or simply because they make me smile?

And smiling is always important!
Small one was a gift from my friend Tally H.
What objects in your home 
make you smile?


  1. They are very colorful :) I actually have a friend who had a rooster-themed kitchen. I spent some time in there just counting all the roosters...

  2. I had a pair of ceramics, rooster and hen. I had a creative bug that bit me one year and I purchased the white ceramics and some acrylic paint and the job I did on them was amazing (I hate patting myself on the back, buuuuuut...)

    I had the pair for years and I wish I could find them. Something happened between moves during our active duty days.

  3. Roosters are characters. They certainly do have their appeal.

  4. What delightful roosters! I have several different bird figurines around my home that I enjoy very much. However, I just realized that none of them are roosters.

    Well, maybe it's because roosters are not cowbirds....I was born in the year of the ox.

  5. Having something around that makes you smile is always good for your well-being. That's why we have a houseful of Minions!

  6. Sweet. Darling pics. I have lots of things around my house that make me smile.

  7. I have many things in my home that make me smile. I was a doll collector and they made me smile. Now, I groan because I have to dust!

  8. If roosters make you smile, then decorate away!
    Considering how many guitars I own, that must be what makes me smile.

  9. Not sure as I spend so much time on the kids. Maybe I need to pamper myself for a while.

    Pawsitive wishes,
