Do you remember the first time you saw the Wizard of Oz? I do. I remember it in vivid technicolor. My parents were the first on the block to buy a color television.
My brothers and I and all the neighborhood girls gathered on the floor in front of the new television to watch the Wizard of Oz. (that's me on the far left) I remember being almost overwhelmed by the colors. The yellow brick road, the red poppy field, the Munchkins in all of their gloriously colorful costumes.
Who could forget the Wicked Witch of the West? She featured in my childhood dreams quite a few times. When, I look back, I don't remember a single memory that stands out in such vivid color.
Are you an Oz collector? I have to admit that I didn't have a single Oz collectible until last weekend. I found Dorothy while out antiquing with my best friend on Sunday. Then two store later and with a little money left in my pocket, I found the lion. I think they are McDonald's collectibles but I'm not sure. Now I need the tin man and the scarecrow.
If you're a fan of the Wizard of Oz, go stop by Twyla and Lindsey's Wizard of Oz Gala.
Did you think I forgot Pink Saturday?
Who better for Pink Saturday than Glinda the Good Pink Witch!
