3 or More Roosters I Left Behind

It's Three or More - Tuesday with Tam @ Gypsy's Corner.

Join me as I lament 3 or more roosters that I've left behind at shops. I'm consoling myself with a piece of chocolate. Go ahead, have one!

I didn't intend to post anything today, but I remembered these photos from a recent trip. I think you'll agree that these are some pretty wonderful roosters.

Too sad that they didn't strut their way right into my luggage!

Oh well, no doubt they are living the good life in a beautiful home in another part of the country!

Let's celebrate them today for the
Week of Roosters @
Hyacinths For The Soul!

Look at this lovely vignette of three metal roosters. I was enchanted with each one!

This one looks very French to me. I suspect he was modeled after a weather vane seen perched high on a roof top in the French countryside.

Have to say there is some wonderful detail on these two!

Look at this lovely guy! His crisp black and red would really add some punch to any kitchen.

How about this guy? He's a hand sculpted glazed clay delight!

Thanks for stopping by today. Please leave a comment below so I'll know you visited, then click here to join Tam @ Gypsy's Soul for Three or More-Tuesday. Don't forget that Hyacinths For The Soul is celebrating with a Week of Roosters. See you tomorrow for Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Southern Dreamer.

And mark your calendar for Friday the 28th.

You won't want to miss the
Show Us Your Roosters Party!

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.


  1. I love the roosters. My house is full of them. Pictures, carvings, statues. Oh I love the roosters.

  2. Those were awesome pictures of the roosters. How fun! Thank you for sharing. Have a wonderful week Sarah!
    Hugs and Glitter! Patti

  3. More wonderful roosters, I wonder how you could bear to leave them behind?
    Happy Tuesday

  4. We have a very well know politician here in Belgium who is called De Haene (this is flemish for "the rooster") and he collects roosters too. The roosters on the first picture are wonderful and they are moddeled not on French rooftop weathervanes roosters but on church rooftop weathervanes. Almost all churches here in Belgium have rooster weathervanes on the top of there bell towers. Why roosters?? I do not know.

  5. Ok, fess up. How many roosters do you have? (If you already divulged, I missed it... probably looking at roosters instead of words :-)

    Great post!

  6. Love the rooster pics. I am starting to get into roosters. I have a few in my dining room..... will see if I can participate in your rooster party on Friday. Gotta find those pictures :-)

  7. The roosters that never made it home (or your home anyways) are very nice. I have always admired them, but I have never gotten one for myself. Hmm...maybe I should get one. It could sit up high on my fridge. I remember from when I was a kid that the roosters would get up as high as they could and do there cockadoodadoodleing. Thank you for the very sweet comments on my grands. I love them so much, they are so much fun. Hugs, Cindy S

  8. Sarah, this is great. I love that you are posting roosters every day this week.

    I still haven't taken my photos. I need to get busy.

  9. What great roosters! I wonder if they are sad they did not go home with you.
    Thanks for visiting me today! Hope you had a great day!!

  10. Sarah, this is are so dear!

    Hugs, Barb :-)

  11. Sarah,

    I love these roosters. Especially the metal ones. I just seem to like the rustic ones!!

    Thanks so much for sharing them, Sarah


  12. Roosters are so much fun. Thank you for sharing these photos of some that did not make it home with you. I really like the last one.
    Have a wonderful day,
