Loves Liza Minnelli, Dudley Moore, The Beatles, The Who, The Monkees, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Dean Martin, etc. Definitely born in the wrong era.

29 year old girl from the east bay area in California (read as: nowhere on the map) and also loves all things craft-wise. Is an avid cross-stitcher, knitter, crocheter, photographer, writer, loves drawing, and generally anything that involves making something pretty.

Also loves nostalgia. Both from the 60's/70's, from her own childhood in the 80's/90's, and some even older stuff. You've been warned.

Granted, my whole Dorothy theory is now out of the water, but….DON’T CARE *SQUEEEEEEE* WE GET DOROTHY!!!!!

Looks like we’ve got a new Dorothy this year too. And this one actually looks like Judy instead of Barbie in a Dorothy outfit. GAHHHHH DECISIONS…

It was Halloween time and Liza was allowed to dress in costume and then to make the rounds of the neighborhood homes in the company of her protective father. After much discussion, it was decided she could go in a witch’s outfit, one adapted from Mama’s “The Wizard of Oz”. Vincene devoted much effort to duplication each bit of clothing for the ensemble to fit petite Liza, and even supervised her make-up. Then father and daughter proceeded out into the early evening. At each house, Liza was convinced that with her disguise none of the neighbours could or would recognise her. But the same routine occured at mansion after mansion: she would excitedly ring the doorbell, the door would open, and the house owner would casually say, “Oh, hello Liza” and give her some treats for her goodie bag. Then Vincente led his determined youngster to the Kelly abode. Much to her delight when the door opened and Gene greeted them, he jumped back in mock terror and even began climbing the walls. Liza screamed with glee. Her daddy had created a successful occasion for her.

Pretty sure I just pissed off every single one of the neighbors in one fell swoop. Whoops. It’s insanely windy out here right now (we’re talking 50 mph winds at least) so in my infinite wisdom, I run outside (nevermind it being 6:30 in the morning) and start noisily re-enacting a certain opening scene from The Wizard Of Oz. X-D Bonus points for coincidentally having my blue gingham robe on while doing it; that was unplanned, but works! If it hadn’t of been so spur of the moment, I’d of probably filmed it and stuck it on Youtube.

Talia wasn’t too thrilled at being called Toto though, seemingly. Or having to be out in it at all with me running around like a maniac. >_>
