We watched The Wizard of Oz for the umpteenth time the other night with closed captioning turned on. We're watching more and more like that as we age and have to turn the volume up so high it's unpleasant. You catch things you were never aware of in the dialogue that way. Anyway, I thought up a whole series of bead sets with Oz themes: that zigzaggy pattern on the flying monkey jackets, the yellowbrick road, sepia toned transfers, Dorothy's gingham dress...the possibilities are endless and have probably been done to death, but that doesn't mean I can't have my turn at it. If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow,why oh why can't I?
