I tried to buy some at savannah's website but something is wrong with the links. nothing to buy

These are real cute! My daughter is a real fan of the Wizard of Oz, so for her wedding I made her garter blue and white gingham with white lace. I had found metal slippers and painted them with red glittered paint. She loved them! I never thought to use Barbie shoes, but they would work just the same. Now I'll just HAVE to make her a pair of earings, I'm sure she'll love them! Thanks for the idea!
