Wamego, Kansas Pt 2/Thursday Doors

Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home. Dorothy clicked her heels 3 times to reiterate that thought and it took her back to Auntie Em’s. So I felt like a homestyle quilt block was in order for the 2nd half of the Wamego post. But since the hubster is up for surgery #4 tomorrow, it’s going on the backburner til later. But I will add it to my mini quilt project plan.

Late in the day here so I present the later half of my photo collection from Wamego, Kansas and hope to have the quilting ready for next post.

Some Halloween feels for you who wish to celebrate today.

My favorite character was the Tin Man and I was glad to see him peekin’ out of that window there. In case you missed the prior post on the Wizard of Oz museum, click here.

Once a music hall, this is now theatre, museum and art center. I’m sorry I didn’t get a good clear view of the flyers on the window. The best I could tell is the center one said “Circus” and possibly ‘Freak Show’ underneath.

Former church?

The plus is that this building is still in use.

In it’s 134th year. Current building (sanctuary) erected in 1908. And that’ll do it for me this week. Stop in at Norm 2.0 for more doors from all over. Thanks Norm for hosting!

Next Stop, Wamego/ThursdayDoors

I’m happy to report I still have more of the Kansas Quilt Trail to share with you. This road trip back in July was plentiful in doors too thankfully. I’ll have unorthodox quilt blocks included. But to keep it simple, I decided to break up the Wamego, Kansas discoveries into a couple of posts.

I wonder if you'll get a hint of what Wamego is famous for from this photo?

I won’t keep you in suspense for long. Ya’ll got places to go, people to see, blogs to read. So one main attraction for a lot of new visitors is the Wizard of Oz Museum.

My pics will follow of our little jaunt past the museum. No indoor pics, sorry. The reason there’s an Oz museum in Wamego? Why Not?! At least that’s what they say to this question. It’s the largest Oz collection on public display in the world. And what better place than a small Kansas town to host it?!

The blocks of concrete were cool, but the little Toto’s were even better.

Aren’t they sweet ?? We figured good enough for an Instagram-ish photo prop….

If you ever find yourself in Wamego, there is a lot to do there. We found these posters along our walk.

Although our Kansas Quilt Trail drive was a pretty quick one day tour, we learned there is plenty to drive back for another time. Very helpful, Wamego!

Thanks for visiting! I hope you’ll take a few to drop in at Norm 2.0 for directions to many more Thursday Doors posts!
