Someone really wonderful sent me this especially handsome and colorful rooster, which you can see on the left-hand side of the pic. I found the gray rooster at Goodwill. I was thrilled that he matched my gray counter (which I painted about six months ago), but the corner was just a little drab. Mr. Colorful Rooster punched things up, don't you think? The platter was $1 at Goodwill. I stole the idea from some magazine article and just wrote on it with a red Sharpie.
Here is the second part of the gift, a hand-made table runner wth a red, yellow, and blue rooster pattern. I love it!
Here's a close up:
Last year, this same kind person sent me a rooster calendar. I put Mr. February, Mr. November, and his other colorful companions in some inexpensive frames. I love how they look.
