chenille rooster


So at the same yard sale that I got the vintage tripod... I found this... my chenille rooster... that I named Shaquille Chenille. No, I'm not a Shaquille O'Neil fan... but I love basketball and I love the SUNS and Shaquille rhythms with chenille... so there you go. Oh and they wanted a dollar for him!


Look at the variety of chenille fabrics! I love the nubby textures (enlarge pics), the deep, rich colors and the fact that he does not fall over. Seriously, perfect balance... you set him down, he stays there. He is quite a handsome, stately ole gent. All to say, I'd have paid more.

Love your rooster! I need to make a path of chicken feed from your house to mine, so he can find his way over here:)

Shaquille Chenille is almost surreal. Way better than veal. Too bad he's not teal. What a great deal!
