Not in Kansas Anymore





Shirt (Old Navy); Jeans & Earrings (Nordstrom); Necklace (H&M);
Shoes (Target); Bracelet (bought a festival)

What little girl didn't dream of owning her own pair of ruby slippers one day?  Well it only took about 30 years, and I opted for gold instead of ruby - but I finally got my magic shoes! And I have my Toto :) Besides learning that there's no place like home (unfortunately clicking together the heels of my golden slippers only results in glitter loss) the Wizard of Oz has some important lessons we should all keep in mind: 

Despite the obstacles, always follow your own yellow brick road.  

Quite often, the things we wish for most in life are things we already have.

Never trust a flying monkey or a witch who wants to steal your shoes ;)

Is there a lot of glitter loss when you touch your shoe to something? I have seen a similar pair and I tend to scuff my shoes easily.

Amy said...
