Welcome to the Wizard of Oz Party and Give Away!

 Hello everyone and welcome to my version of the Wizard of Oz Blog Party! I am giving away 3 original paintings... Dorothy is a 5x7 and the other two are ACEOs....all you have to do is  leave a comment saying you want a chance to win...it is that easy!

-Kitty Cat Dorothy is a 5x7 and she is the first give away-

-Dog Cowardly Lion-

 I wanted to share with you some info that I thought was out of the ordinary about the Wizard of Oz...all from the Official 50th. Anniversary Pictorial History Book!
Munchkinland sequence of music written by Roger Edens.

Judy Garland modeling 3 potential dresses and wigs.

Little Oz books 1939

I never heard this story before...this is about Margaret Hamilton..the Wicked Witch...they were doing a take of her exiting the tiny village...she was severely burned when the fire effect surrounding her trapdoor/elevator was set off a couple of seconds too soon...her hat, broom, and hair caught fire..her face and hand were also burned....thank God she recovered and returned...she was the absolute best Wicked Witch there could ever be!

So scary yet so cute...close-ups were made of the monkey make up and nearly 30 years later it became the forerunner of the make up used in the movie "Planet of the Apes"

 I hope you enjoyed your time here and please don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win...also... I would be honored if you become one of my followers...and remember.."THE DREAMS THAT YOU DARE TO DREAM REALLY DO COME TRUE."
