Spiritual Sunday

For Spiritual Sunday today , Chris Tomlin singing I will Rise.
Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they sang: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!" Revelation511-12

The Wizard of Oz Gala

Welcome to my celebration as part of The Wizard of Oz Gala,hosted by Two Crazy Crafters. Be sure to check out their site and all the participants listed there. Thanks so much Twyla & Lindsey for hosting.

As a child , I remember watching The Wizard of Oz every year on TV. There was no video players or dvds, just TVand the movies. During the early 1960's , I only remember three programs that came on in color : The Wonderful World of Disney,Bonanza,and of course , The Wizard of Oz. Everything else was black-in -white.I, and my sisters looked forward to it every year. As a child , I felt like I was Dorothy ,experiencing all the her adventures and then coming safely back home. My favorite part was when she sang"Over the Rainbow".Now when I hear that song, I always remember my deceased father , who used to play that song beautifully on the mandolin.

I had to don a Dorothy inspired blouse ,and of course my ruby slippers. I am holding a WOZ movie picture book(it was a recent publication ) that I found at a second-hand book store.

There are three parts to my celebration, first up is a table scape that I plan on using for my annual Sister's Luncheon.

This is a movie poster I found at amazon.

This is yellow brick road inspired.

These are WOZ inspired Cherished Teddies.

Here is a WOZ music box , it plays "Over The Rainbow". Inside is a Ruby Slippers pin.

The napkin holder is sequins and a book clip .

The second part is My Wizard of Oz Garden

" Dorothy" is represented by her Ruby Slippers,

A scarecrow for "the scarecrow",

"The Tin Man" by a folk art tin man I purchased on Ebay,
"Over the Rainbow " by this rainbow wind twister,also represents "The twister",

"The Lion" by this lion fountain.

There are pink & red knock-out roses and some pink antique roses.Only some red are blooming right now.

This clear glass globe is for "Glenda , The Good Witch."
