Edie Ellen Poe and the Enchanted Emerald Earrings

In the shadows of Oz lurks wee, Edie Ellen,
Cooking's a skill she excels in,
She wears enchanted emerald earrings,
To bewitch sweet young things,
How many munchkins she's et', there's no tellin'!

See what Edie and her vampire cat Raven are cooking up here

Edie and Raven were created by Martha Hull.
I took the photo for her Poegirl Challenge,
which you can get all the info on here.

The photo and poem are also for Celebrate Oz,
an annual event hosted by the lovely Oma Linda,
which you can join here.


Since the theme this year is Shadow of Oz,
I want to share two favorite, fitting songs:



Music is usually my muse,
but those earrings were the inspiration for this post.
When I got them from my aunt a few weeks ago,
I knew I had to write about them.

I'm inspired by everything around me though,
just like another muse of mine, Ray Bradbury:


This post is also for The Narrator's Study's event,
Introduce Your Muse, which you can join here.

  6. The lightning made me jump! I will be watching Edie Ellen's adventures after I finish hopping. I can not tear myself away from the cats! Jack's talents make me laugh.
    In school I was also in demand for my "little girl voice" for productions.
    I miss those days now.

  7. Love the poem and Poe's influence. Evening Star (1821) by Poe is my fav of his. Be sure to stop by Magician of Oz to read my contribution to Shadow of Oz.

  11. OOUUU I LIKE Edie Ellen and her Emerald earrings! That's so funny..my Mom had similar earrings which I loved. I always went to her jewelry box to put them on and turn myself into Ozma of Oz! And Evanescence- I taught at Pulaski Academy where Amy Lee went to Highschool, here in Little Rock. Everyone in the entire city was SO Proud of her!!!!

    1. Thank you! That's so cool that your mom had similar earrings and you taught at Amy Lee's HS! What class did you teach? Wish I could've gone to school with her. I'm sure we would've been best friends!

  12. HAHHAHAHA!! I taught the little kids, like Amy's sister, Carrie...from 1990-2000. I was the "Performing Arts" teacher and had 200 kids, Kindergarten and First Grade. WE did Plays and Puppet Shows. They were all amazing, learning lines- SMART! Little sponges at that age. Thank-you for asking!

  14. Something that you might Not know ... the Author really Hated the Native Americans... ("Savages" ... "Animals"... were words that he used)
    He was the first to come up with the idea of a "Family Theme Park" (to be based upon Oz of his writings,..... (with profits to go towards the complete "extermination" of these noble People....)
