my occasional musings on life, love, art, perfume ... what else is there?

I'm Not The Manolo but ...

A pair of ruby slippers is somewhere over the rainbow.

The slippers, reported stolen from the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, were one of four remaining pairs worn by Garland during the filming of "The Wizard of Oz.''

On loan to the museum from Hollywood memorabilia collector Michael Shaw for the summer, the slippers disappeared from a locked display case. The museum had insured the slippers for one million dollars; its executive director, John Kelsch, says he's devastated.

All right, Wicked Witch of the West *and you know who you are* Cough them up.

Today's fragrance: Guerlain's romantic L'Heure Bleue with its top notes of bergamot, lemon, coriander, neroli; midnotes of bulgarian rose, iris, heliotrope, jasmine, ylang-ylang, orchid; base notes of vanilla, sandalwood, musk, vetiver, benzoin. A dreamy cure for complications of the heart.

Well at least we know what to do if we spot the perpetrator of this crime. Your options are:

A.) Call the police
B.) Drop a house on 'em
C.) Have a bucket of water on standby.

Umm. L'Heure Bleue. Soon it will be time to wear it here in the hot midAtlantic. Sending good wishes for the recovery of ruby slippers and for mid-course career corrections ;D.

Oh how perfect...I was coming over to tell you to check the addendum
I had to make to my last post.
("Iggy" was rallying up too much fuel in the troops...the nickname had started in jest).
And I came and found a post about shoes...and Manolos at that!
*sigh* a girl of my own heart
