Cock-a-doodle-doo or Coo Coo?

Okay, I have a confession......

I'm OBSESSED with roosters!!!! No, I don't have little ceramic roosters all over my house (though I've thought about it!), but I do have several "rooster touches" in my kitchen. I have had to stop myself from buying anymore because, as those of you who have been over know, my kitchen isn't that big. At one point I thought it was borderline 'tacky' so I forced myself to get rid of a few. (When I say "get rid of" I mean they're packed away in a guest room closet for future use.) Then, when others caught on that I liked roosters, I started getting them as gifts. That's when I realized it was time to down size the roost by a few hens.
Anyway, whenever I see a cute, French Country rooster somewhere, I have to literally FORCE myself to walk away. Every time Wes and I are somewhere and I say, "Oh! Look at this rooster figure/canister/bowl/etc." Wes immediately says, "NO MORE ROOSTERS!!!" I keep telling him if he just bought me my farm house with a big kitchen, it wouldn't feel like we were living in a rooster roost!

Till then, I have a 'few select' (just what that means is debatable!) roosters that take coverage in my kitchen:




Rooster Canisters





"Henrietta the Rooster" above my cabinets.

A silly rooster in my window.


Some rooster oil paintings (I am actually considering doing away with these...Wes doesn't like them!)





Is it overwhelming? Tacky? Should I do-away-with some?

Oh, and while you're looking at pictures of my kitchen...I'm really re-thinking the paint color. Ya'll are really good at decorating and with paint colors, what would be a good color? We chose the beige b/c our kitchen connects to our upstairs living room that's painted green. The two walls are actually perpendicular (see pic) so the colors have to go well together. I've thought of just painting the kitchen green as well.... Would that be too much green? (My favorite color!!! But, you know what they say about too much of a good thing!) Anyway, I'm now thinking the beige is too drab and blends in too much with the counters... SUGGESTIONS, PLEASE!!!!

from the pics, the beige looks fine. But I would have to see it in person to really know.....:) Maybe you just need a change. You can paint it because you want to!! :)

I want to change my kitchen too....:)
