Rooster Plates Have a Home





I finally hung the Lenox Rooster Plates above my Hoosier Cabinet.  I have had them for quite a few years but have trouble finally hanging things on my walls. The Hoosier I have written about before in a post called The Traveling Hoosier Cabinet.

 Sitting on top of the Hoosier are some items that were given to me over the years.  The two cake compotes belonged to my Mother in Law Genolia. The other compote was given to me by my sister in law Susie.  They are sentimental but I also use them, so I need them safe and yet accessible. 








I really like the colors of the roosters on these plates.

 Enjoy your weekend

    the lovely yard bird off so nicely.
