A Girl, A Dress, and Her Chicken

The Girl: It's just me, MaryDeluxe!  I know, it's been so long since you've seen my face so, here's my face!  As you can see, I have returned to my favorite hair a year or so of being my natural brownish color. Oh how I do love gingers! I also am happy to say that I have finally found a new awesome hair stylist to go to after having some disappointments.  I have to be vain and admit that one of the worst things about moving was losing my stylist.


The Chicken: This is my pet chicken, Quasi.  She is named after Quasimodo from the novel, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.  As you might guess, Quasi has a hunched back and is quite the twisted little chicken.  She walks funny, stands funny, and runs funny.  She is lowest in the pecking order and gets pecked at often.  She is the only chicken that is allowed out to free range.  When she sees me walking to the chicken run, she jumps off her chicken roost (where she spends all her time) and comes running to the door so that I can leave her out.  She follows me around the garden as I go about my tasks.  She is one very spoiled chicken! 


The Dress: It's the cute little HeyDay Fleur wrap dress I won way back months ago!   I finally located a seamstress to hem up the bottom for me so I could wear it!  I love it! I just might have to save my pennies and go get myself a few more!  They are great Summer dresses and even the old school seamstress I took it to remarked on how well made it was and asked if it was vintage. It even looks great with muck boots!


The End: Till next time!



  1. So cute! Quasi is adorable! I'm sure she's the perfect gardening partner!

  2. I have the same dress but it looks sooooo much better on you! And LOVE your chicken story. Being as I live in Los Angeles, I dont have any chicken experience so hearing about yours is fascinating.

  3. So fun to have a chicken for pet.... I remember that in my childhood I had a small duck as a pet named Saturnin....

  4. We have been talking about getting chickens, we are trying to become more self sufficient out here on the ranch. This fall we will be planting fruit trees and berry vines. I guess chickens would be the next step. I will have to have a big talk with my hunting dog though.

  5. Your dress is lovely. I love that you have a pet chicken. I used to have a pet duck until a nasty dog got him. Chickens and ducks are so fun to watch:)
