Rooster Kitchen decor {French Country} NEWBIE party started

Never sure if the correct verbiage is French Country or Country French.  I guess it does not matter.
That is what my kitchen is and I am stickin to it.
I have tried to weed these little guys {roosters} out for years.

First, let me tell you a little story how a conversation went with my Mom.
So, I am on face book one day, and she instant messages me...
"Hi Deb" I need to talk to you.
Pinned Image
{This was the look in the summer time}

UH OH, was my first thoughts, this sounds serious.
So, I call her...and this is how the story goes.....

"Deb, you know how sometimes we think alike"?
You know, like you think of an idea, and I had the same one?
We have done this before many times.
Yes, MOM...
well, this is nothing  serious, so don't worry,
I got you and Mike your Christmas present.
You want to know what it is?
No not really, do I have to?
Yes, because I am afraid Mike may think and do the same thing.
OK, Mom what is it?

WELL....{Keep in mind she built up this anticipation like nobody's business.}
I had your magazine spread custom framed, the entire article.

Now I know in the back of my mind, this is no easy gig, not to mention how expensive something like this would cost.
 I would HAVE never in a million years done this.  Even though, yes it is a big deal to us, however, a simple magazine frame would have sufficed and that is what I was planning.
I suppose I made my Mom a little proud:)

 My Mom has created a family heirloom for us.  We cherish it, and love it, the colors, the frame, we seriously could not have done it any better.  The size is perfect, I can't believe she did this all via long distance, no measuring, nothing, all done with her creative mind!
WOW, Mom! 

I thank you Momma from the bottom of our hearts.

ONE more thing for today.
My friend Cindy Adkins is having a week of blessings on her blog starting Monday.
She is sending gals over to the newbie party to pick one or two new friends from the list to start following.  I would appreciate you visiting them and doing the same if you so wish.
It is a very kind gesture and a wonderful way to form new friends.

Thank you so much for hosting this party & getting me started.

Awww! That was so sweet and thoughtful! Your Mom has such great ideas. She certainly did do a good job in picking out a great match to your kitchen too. It looks wonderful where you have it.
Now, what to do for her! :))

The blanket is very VERY easy to make and quick. Once you get on a roll the knots go fast. Cut your tassels about 3.5 to 4 inches long and they are easier to loop. I made my tassels more narrow then I've seen some others do them though they were still about 1 inch wide. I wanted to have more of them. It only took me two nights to make the whole thing because I did it after work. You could feasibly do this in one day in a few hours. You really should! There are so many gorgeous fleece fabrics at Hancocks!

What a great mom you have!! The article is framed beautifully. That was soooo thoughtful.

My oldest daughter and I have that same "thing" between us. A couple of years we both purchased new wreaths for our Christmas front doors - her in CA and me in OR. They were the EXACT same wreaths. Seriously weird!

Thanks for your wishes about my "issue." I can't wait to get this day going and back to the doctor. I'm up early cuz I can't sleep and just want to be on the mend.
