I Had To Do It.... I Did It For YOU!!!! cause I love ya that much!

I am joining a Rooster party today!!! Barb from Bella Vista is hosting...click her name to check it out! I am also joining two other parties as well....(boy I get around don't I?) lol
Thank you to Suzanne at Coloradolady for hosting Vintage Thingies Thursday. Click her logo to see the others participating today...
Thank you Leigh at Bloggeritaville for hosting Thrifty Thursday. Click the logo above to see more bloggers participating today!
I was out and about...and stopped at a local thrift shop. I don't collect Roosters...Don't even really want to start...but when I saw these mugs...I knew I had to have them. The price was a steal, so I picked them up! Now there are some tiny flaws in them...but who cares??? These are just about the most unique things I have seen in well...ever. Have you seen any like this??? Is this part of a whole setting?
Now do you see why I needed to bring them home??? and...Can you tell where this is going????
They are SHAPED like roosters!!! I thought of a lot of you guys when I saw them....Now...since I don't collect Roosters...and so many of you do...I thought I might...do....a....GIVE AWAY!!!!
all of my followers are so sweet to me. I appreciate the loyalty and friendship you send my way. I have wanted to to a give away for a while...so when I saw these...I thought...this is it!
who wants a Set of 4 vintage rooster cups???? I know...how cheezy to give away thrifted mugs...but they are unique...right?
If you do...please leave me a comment...and let me know. Busy will be making a draw for them on Sunday evening...that gives us plenty of time to enter over and over again if you like!
No catch...just let me know if are interested...and I will put you in...if you are not into roosters...leave me a comment anyways...I love hearing from you all!
what are you waiting for....comment!!

I am not a rooster collector either. However, my sister has so many around her house. She does not have anything like these mugs. What a nice gift they would make. It would thrill her to death.

What great little mugs..I've never seen any like them, and they're really cute. I'm not a rooster collector, so if my name is drawn, will you send them to LV for her sister? Thanks so much and have a happy VTT..

Those are quite unique and cute. I'll pass as how in the world can I start collecting one more thing. Good luck everyone!
Thanks for sharing!
Living it up at Lakewood,

DeniseMarie said...

the mugs are really cool and I almost bought a $3 vintage crocheted apron to giveaway antiquing in Alabama (I was feeling really sick and needed to get back in the car and go). Love your blog and I'm trying to figure out what to do for a giveaway soon too. I'm really a bunny girl but roosters have crept in because of a kitchen curtain. I still need to take my pics for the post. cock-a-doodle-dooooooo

Barbara said...

I love your rooster cups and I didn't realize I had all these rooster until I started getting them out for tomorrow and one got broken and I have another I forgot....why do I have all these roosters?

Barbara

Queenmothermamaw said...

I think that is a neat idea. I shop sometimes and think of my blogging friends. You can kill two birds with one stone. Strut your rooster and a give away. I don't collect roosters, I just paint them, so I will not sign up. I still love that idea.

onlymehere said...

How smart is that to cover all three things in one item with the rooster cups! Thrifty, yes; vintage, yes; and roosters, yes!! I don't collect roosters but I know many people in blog land do. Specifically I think Picket will be doing a happy dance to get them!! Enter me in the give-away and I'll finally have a rooster in my house! Picket once told me I didn't know what I was missing by not having one or 10, lol!! This was a great idea of your's!! Me

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi....I have you linked up for the Rooster Party. So glad you have joined us and thank you so much for the Rooster mention...so kind of you.

See you at the party!

Barb :-)

Ruby said...

These cups are unique. I don't need anymore cups even if they are roosters which I love. Maybe I should have a rooster giveaway? We'll see if I can get it posted. Thanks for sharing your find. No entry for me! :)

Shelia said...

Woo Hooness! You're part of the Rooster club! I love it!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

kclily said...

OMG...I love these. I don't collect chickens but I collect unusual coffee mugs. I would love to have these. I would actually drink coffee out of them. Thanks for being so generous.

Chris said...

I love roosters, although I don't have one in my house. But, I did redo my MIL's kitchen in roosters just cause it's all country. Those cups would look devine on her mantle in the kitchen.

Hugs,
Chris

bj said...

AHHHHHH...HA!! No getting around it, girl...now you are ONE OF US...
Love it!!

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Great find Tootsie! They're adorable.

I won't enter your drawing though. I don't collect roosters & I'm afraid of what would happen if I got one - it would multiply! ☺ Diane

glimpse of my world said...

Hey girlie!! I LOVE the rooster cups.. please enter me in the drawing.. come see me!

Kammy said...

Hi Tootsie !!!
I have the giggles from your "spam attack" how rude....I better be checking my messages too...hee hee.
I think that a give away of a vintage thing is totally acceptable cuz, most of us love it.
I am not starting a rooster collection either...I might keep the cookie jar I got, and I have someone who wants my 25 cent plate..I guess I should keep the real rooster - I do like the cockadoodle doos he makes !
Hugs ~ KaMMY

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Girl these are "great" .. they are so unique and so different. I think it's pretty special you went out and purposely bought them for the party and now are going to give them away.. That is just tooooo sweet of you.. well naturally throw my name in.. it doesn't usually get drawn.. but put it in the mix darling and maybe that darling Busy will draw it out..lol.. hugs ~lynne~
