One Flower Wednesday and Don't Forget Novelty and Solids Layer Cake Swap

"Don't wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get you've got to make yourself." -Alice Walker

  Is it One Flower Wednesday Again?  Yes it is and the Story of Oz continues.........I know I am getting out of order here......well actually I was out of order from the beginning because I think the first person Dorothy met in Oz was Glinda, the Good Witch, who cautioned Dorothy to get the Ruby slippers off the Wicked Witch of the East before the witch's sister got there.  


Do you remember that Dorothy's house which was taken from Kansas by the Tornado landed in Oz atop the Wicked Witch of the East and killed her?  All we saw of her was her two legs wearing striped stockings and the Ruby Slippers on her feet...........

 But, Alas, I still don't have Glinda ready to show you....... So you will have to make do with the sister witch, who was known as "The Wicked Witch of the West" instead.  She was the second person Dorothy met in Oz.


"I'll get you, My Pretty.......and your little dog too!"



But I promise that next week I will have Glinda ready to show you and after that??? Well I will cross that yellow brick road when I get to it...........

You can see more pretty posies at One Flower Wednesdays just click on the link and enjoy the garden!



I also want to put in a word about the Novelty and Solids Layer Cake Swap that my Sister at Hilachas and I are sponsoring.......
