The Original Hippie

L. Frank Baum had a habit of pulling fresh new characters out of his head just when the Oz series was starting to grow stale. One of the most popular of these made her debut in her very own book, The Patchwork Girl of Oz. It's one of my favorite books in the series, and one of the freshest. Baum had a history of creating strong female characters, and Scraps the Patchwork girl, with her stubborn refusal to settle for the status quo, was certainly one of these. Her motto is right there for all to see. Hope you like this new (at last!) card.
