It's The Year of The Rooster!

Happy Chinese New Year!

It's the Chinese New Year! And this time, it's The Year of The Rooster! In honor of the occasion, I've placed a figurine depicting a rooster in my home (he can be seen in the image atop this blog entry).

I was not born in The Year of The Rooster, rather I was born in The Year of The Horse. And during the Chinese New Year of 2014 (which was The Year of The Horse), I paid homage to the event by writing a post for hometalk and by placing a figurine depicting a horse within my home.

He can be seen in the following images showing him celebrating with the New Year's Baby and the baby's cocktail loving comrades; as well as in an image spending time in my succulent garden (two views) and in a solo photo-op (respectively).





All of these figurines are from More & More Antiques, the exquisite shop on NYC's UWS, which is currently selling my fauna-flora-insect-themed postcards. Thumbnail images of these postcards can be seen in the pictures below.



However, you can view these images in a larger size via a prior post here on Blogger; as well as within a storefront page on my web-site, patriciayoungquist.com.

Btw, all of these postcards should be available in the gift shop for the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum; and the fauna-themed ones may still be found at the gift shop for The Raptor Trust (a bird rehab facility in New Jersey).

FYI, the images on all of my postcards are from both the iBook and ePub version of Cam's book, Words In Our Beak, Volume One.




Cam's book and or my fauna-flora-insect-themed postcards make great gifts to give to those who celebrate the Chinese New Year, no matter what animal represents their year! And before I sign off, let me direct you to a list  (below) of various animals representing a certain Chinese New Year and alongside the animal are the years they represent.
