Halloween Story #5 "Visit The Wicked Museum"

Take time to visit The Wicked Museum. The gallery has a collection of objects of the people from the great land of OZ. Notes of interest include The Wicked Witch of the West's personal belongings. Her broom is parked by a display that features a cherished baby photo, her black pointy hat given to her by her friend Galinda long before the terrible days. Also shown are her boots worn over the years. (I took a black and white photo of myself as a baby and tinted the skin green. The boots were my Great Great Grandmothers.)Elphaba's (known later as the Wicked Witch of the West) belongings were donated by The Historical Society of OZ.Below is an old childhood art project.
These small boots were worn by Elphaba when she was a very small child. (originally my Great Grandmothers. Isn't that fabulous that my Grandmother saved them?!)

A keepsake photo that Galinda gave Elphaba while at Chiz University.

Galinda (Glinda the Good Witch) belongings were donated by The Junior League of OZ.
Glalinda's party dress was bought by my daughter for a prom years ago. I'm glad she kept it.
fun stuff...
