Do you ever wonder why so many kitchen items feature roosters? Everything from canisters to casserole dishes, potholders to pictures and spoon holders to salt & pepper shakers.
A rooster in the kitchen brings you good luck - plain and simple. This belief is actually pretty universal around the world as many countries relate fables wherein the rooster features prominently as bringing good luck into some situation or other. So common superstition says you would be well-advised to add one to your kitchen paraphernalia - if you haven't brought one into your home already! Check your designs - there is probably one lurking somewhere as people often gift kitchen roosters in the form of towels or other kitchen do-dads ... they might even be worked into your tiles. I actually relish the day when the "sterile" stainless steel kitchen trend comes to an end. Then not only the kitchen rooster - but all those lovely, homey French Provencal colours - can make a well-deserved comeback in the form of kitchen tiles, counter tops and floors.
But in the meantime, do incorporate a rooster in your kitchen to bring good luck and good fortune into your home. You'll get all of the benefit ... without any of the early morning cock-a-doodle-doing! What could be easier?
