Not-so Ruby Slippers

Dawn Ellerd provides you with two options of skimmers—ruby and not-ruby. While the film presents the Technicolor-ly appropriate ruby slippers, Baum’s book calls for a strong metal—silver—to be employed in their manufacture. While Dawn is convinced that our good Madame would rather embrace the more arterial hued version, in her head you just cannot have a trip to Oz without the appropriately delightful footwear of your choice. Whether you choose precious metal or gemstone glory, may these slippers enliven your days (or at least keep your toes warm) and forever see you safely home.
