Rustic Rooster Kitchen

Hello Everyone!
I was not planning it but roosters are taking
over my kitchen decor' slowly but surely.
Join me for a mini kitchen tour.
The old soap dispenser broke and I found this one at Ross.
Of course I had to add the matching spoon rest...:)
They are called rustic rooster.
Here's my sink area with my new roos.
This king rooster plate has a home on the console.
The rooster bow frame was handmade by Kristen.
A rooster arrangement by Kristen is displayed on my red table.
A sweet resin rooster lamp from Kirklands.
The elegant rooster dishes are from Cracker Barrel.
The rooster tassel was made by Kristen.
I think I will stop buying roosters now.
Or not...:)
Have a wonderful week!

Teri said...

Haha! So cute! I love all of the roosters!

I recently bought a new rooster soap dispenser at Ross, too. It's the same shape as yours but it has a red background. I have the same tassel and picture frame from Kristen. Just last night I brought my big rooster into the kitchen from the laundry room. I don't see an end to my rooster madness!

Teri said...

Wow! What an honor! Thank you very much! =)

Yes, the Roos are lots of fun!!

Sailing Simply said...

I am a new rooster collector and it just is so hard to ignore those roosters in the stores now! Yours are wonderful! Love the soap dispenser and your Cracker Barrel plates too!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Melissa, you have quite a few roos. Very pretty kitchen and my favorites are the plates from Cracker Barrel. Of course I love green and roosters and those are both.

Love the Rustic Roosters! Wonderful additions, Melissa.

Love the new additions to your roosters. I think they are all just gorgeous. Love roosters and love how pretty the colors are of your. The tassel and the one in the floral arrangement are both unusual and so beautiful. Hugs, Marty

Love your roosters...I am not a rooster person...but I think everything else we do almost identical....Always love your tours

Liz said...

Hi Melissa!
I love your Rooster collection. In my humble opinion, one can never have too many Roosters. lol! I adore those adorable Rooster plates from Crackle Barrel. Oh, and did you make the Rooster floral arrangement? If so, it is BEAUTIFUL!! Everything is just lovely! Thanks from sharing! Happy Fall! ~Liz

Becca said...

Hi Melissa! I love all of your rooster touches! I know they are enjoying their new beautiful home scattered around your kitchen. My faves are the red rooster plate and the green rooster dishes (may have to go check those out at CB). And, of course, I love your rooster tassel from Kristen! Have a great day ... ((hugs)), Becca

Roosters do seem to have a way of multiplying. I once had a couple in my kitchen and now have lost count of how many are in there.
Yours all look very nice and right at home in your pretty house.

Pam said...

I only have a few roosters - so far. But I keep seeing more and more that I need. I think they look wonderful in your home. The Cracker Barrel plates are my favorite.

Morgan said...

All of the roosters look great in your kitchen! I love the new soap bottle.

Shana said...

Great photos

Kelly said...

Great! I was out and about the otehr day and came across a pair of rooster lamps, red shades and all...I thought of you, then me, and almost bought them....I might go back for them...

Richella said...

Isn't it funny how, once you start buying something you like, others just seem to find you?

I like your roosters! It doesn't seem to me that you've gone overboard--yours are classy and pretty. Love that tassel!

Have a great day, Melissa!

Vanessa said...

Hi Melissa! I loved getting to see more snippets of your gorgeous home! You know what I have realized about the roosters? They always come in the colors I love! I think that is why I always gravitate towards them. I love those green plates especially and was also curious where you got your kitchen rug??? It has the colors I am looking for in my kitchen.
Have a great Monday!
Vanessa

Donna Lynn said...

Melissa, it is like that here in my kitchen too, you should check out my rooster post! It gets worse when all your family and friends find out this is what "you Love!" and then they multiply faster then baby bunnies! Yours are tasteful and beautiful though, I have gotten a couple that had to be "hidden" if you know what I mean! ;)

Hope you had a wonderful weekend, is it cooling down there yet? We had lovely sunny, rainy, sunny warm weather all weekend, it was so pretty. Fall all around the Northwest, the trees are just gorgeous!

XO!!!

Reynie @ Southern Girl Rambling said...

I heart roosters! I have started a small collection of them as well. I fear it is going to easily get out of control!

Teri said...

Melissa~

I just had to stop what I was doing and say thank you for being such a positive and encouraging blogger. Your upbeat attitude and your fun designing skills touch the hearts of many! You are a blessing! Enjoy the beauty of your day!

Blessings,
Teri

Melissa said...

Are my eyes playing tricks on me or is there a rooster on the picture frame with the bow on the console too? Either way the warm colors and sweet items are perfect!

Many Blessings,
M.

Lisa said...

The rooster addiction is indeed a slippery slope! Yours look beautiful though and you know I'm in love with those CB dishes!

Karen said...

Hi Melissa,
Thanks for the visit to my blog.
I love the colors you use. Your kitchen is very similar to mine.. I just wish I could pull the red in like you do. I'm going to keep trying. Fall is a good time to start trying. Wish me luck!!

Valerie said...

I think that is fun when a collection just sort of happens. I like all your roosters they look wonderful!

I'm excited about the shred. I'm sure I'll have to modify like crazy, but it's going to be fun to add something new to do.

A Hint of Home said...

Hi Melissa,
I just love the new Roo soap dispenser. I have incorporated Roos in my kitchen this Spring but have them all put away for the Fall. lol I have sooo many pumpkins everywhere.
Your kitchen is a dream. Love the counter tops.
Hugs!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hi Melissa,
Oh you do have a fabulous collection!
Great colors, love those ones from cracker barrel, so sweet!
And that tassel is amazing, great job my friend!
Hugs,
Cindy

Sue said...

You have a very nice collection of the king of the barnyard, Melissa! Love the dishes and the tassel. We even have the same red plate. Keep adding to them- can you EVER have enough?

Olive Cooper said...

Oh goodnes, you have a fierce collection. The cracker barrel dishes are my favorite. hugs♥olive

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Melissa, thanks so much for linking to TTT. I love all of your roosters and it is always such a treat to see your beautiful vignettes. Hugs, Marty

CHERI said...

Your kitchen is wonderful. Love all the roosters! Unlike some others I've seen, you haven't OVER done them. I don't like when someone adds so much to their collection that there is just too much for the eye to see. My opinion is...better to have a few great ones that everyone can see and enjoy than too many that just all melt together!

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

Beautiful kitchen! Cute roosters! I enjoyed touring your kitchen!

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

P.S. - I meant to say I also love the designs by Kristen!

Love your red rooster plate! I would love to have a set like that for my red dining room! Ohhh...and your gorgeous green rooster plates...love, love, LOVE THEM!

Hi Melissa, Love all of your roos! I find myself looking at roosters in every store I go in! I just bought some black rooster plates the other day. They look good with my new black rooster.

Your kitchen is so warm and inviting...I just love it! The soap dipenser is precious...

I saved a watch for you. I just listed 14 Etsy store items the other night and only have a few left. I will get more made tomorrow. I worked yesterday and today at the interior store...goodness, I'm glad I don't work everyday. I can't get caught up! Everything is in a mess...talk to you soon, Kristen
