Halloween Greetings from Little Dorothy

A sweet postcard and a sweet little girl. With her ruby slippers she reminds me of a young Dorothy, but I have a feeling she’s not in Kansas anymore, it looks more like the Land of Halloween with classic symbols such as the black cat, the jack-o-lantern, the owl, the spooky woods, and the full moon. The cat is considering taking a dip in the Tar River. Is our Halloween Dorothy a young witch, or is she going to a birthday party…her hat is ambiguous.
