Chickens, cordial, cute earrings and closet...

The chickens are happy I'm not keeping them in the pen as much, since our garden is pretty much done (we only have beets and carrots left), they can roam around there.  When tomatoes are ripe they love to take a few pecks out of them.  They are starting their yearly moult (which means to lose their feathers) and we're getting an egg about every other day now.  Usually they resume laying eggs in 3 months.
Saw these cute bicycle earrings at Findlay Market this weekend and bought them.  Only $6, made by someone in Kenya out of recycled materials.
A friend of mine shared some pictures from their trip to Prince Edward Island.  I especially liked the bottles of raspberry cordial for sale, but would rather have the homemade variation from "The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook" (my sister gave it to my daughter a while ago). 
We are organizing the girls closet.  See the camp uniform, with the patch that looks like a Russian flag?  Pink hangers were for sale at Deals $1 for a pack of 6 (and they're made in USA)!
