Celebrate Oz 2013 - Altered Oz

The fabulous Oma Linda is hosting a Celebrate Oz blog party and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to join in the fun!

I remember reading the Oz books as a child but I don't remember many details other than the absolutely terrifying illustrations...

Scary stuff! But I also recall that land of Oz extends far greater than that classic film with the rainbow song.

This March break, the Pixie family went to see the new Oz flick which explores more of that world and the great wizard himself. One of the best parts of the new film was the fantastic balloon ride our hero goes on. Because I've been admiring the light bulb hot air balloons I've been spying on pinterest for a while now, I decided to make one as my contribution to the blog party.

And so, here is my vintage Wizard of Oz in his altered hot air balloon...

AND because I kinda like munchkins and wee folk of all sorts I'm giving away a set of my new "Winged Things" Mini cards. Just comment below and you'll automatically be entered (just make sure I can contact you). I'll pick a random winner next Friday, March 22nd.


Now, hop over to Oma Linda's Olde Baggs n' Stuft Shirts and check out the rest of the fabulous  bloggy fun!
