Ruby slippers


A pair of ruby slippers created for the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz will be up at auction this December. The satin pumps, which are chiffon lined, beaded with thousands of burgundy sequins and accented with bows, were one of several pairs created for the character of Dorothy in the movie. There are only three other pairs known to exist and this pair is expected to fetch $2 million! You can read more about the famous slippers here. I would love to be a fly on the wall at that auction!

Ooh, that would be an exciting auction to watch! I think going to auctions is possible one of the most exciting experiences. Although, these would be, um, a tad over my budget.

Hi,
The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me as much as this particular one.New Year Greetings For Business I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought you would probably have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.
Thanks
