Cock-A-Doodle-I-DO! Roosters...


Birds of a different feather!
Rooster time!

Finished the last piece last night while watching
American Idol with our teens...
Tissue box, please!
Love that the "last 3's" hometown's welcome them~
Ordinary guys and gals... that never stood out...
Knocking some socks off when they do what
they love and have opportunity to share!


I drew these eleven feathered friends on antique
dessert napkins (that's what the tag read...)
I thought there were 12...
Years from now I will find the 12th napkin...


What fun these were to draw!
I don't decorate with any themes... but I did
want to keep a few of these to frame and hang
in our wheat colored kitchen!
Instead they're all available from my Etsy store...
~please click here to go visit~



Thankfully... this black and white variety does
not shout "Cock-A-Doodle-Do!!!" at the crack of dawn...
But isn't that a marvelous sound?

Hope your day is sunny and very sweet!

Is there no end to your talent...no, of course not! I received my package yesterday and please don't tell my sister but I'm keeping the song bird set for myself I think and I will give her the wren set. The bee on the pink fabric is so sweet...can't wait until the slip comes. I'm glad I don't collect roosters...they are wonderfully detailed!

I'm speechless!!!! These are immensely beautiful. I love the bees in your shop. I would buy all of them right now if the Great Spending Freeze of 2010 didn't just happen in my household.

*so so so sad*

Congrats on an amazing collection!

Oh, they can crow at my house any time! LOL! This morning at 5 am it was the robins and I loved it! There's something comforting about hearing any kind of bird welcoming the new day. These are beautiful, Michelle!!!

Wonderful art, Michelle! I was wondering, do you ever sell any of your watercolor paintings?
