Hi, Nikki,
It's me again. I just wanted to tell you, I always wanted to get a better look in Scarlet's close, and your picture let's me do that. :)
I see her green robe. Do you? I don't recognize any others, but look at all those hat boxes!

I am excited about your GWTW ball, May I join you with some reminescence from my 87 yr old mother who saw it 4 times in 1939?
I do not know what else I can do but relive her memories.

Nikki, Your timing is perfect! I just finished reading GWTW for my book club. So I will be doing a book review for the party. I loved the book! I saw the movie many years ago and have asked for it for my birthday in Oct. In fact I am so excited about it I went to the library to check out the movie, just so I could watch it right after I finished the book. You know you can't buy the movie right now as all of the copies have been pulled for the 70th Anniversary Special Edition Release. I can't wait! : )

This was an awesome idea!

Tara said...

Hello Nikki! I'm out visiting some blogs that I haven't stopped in on for a while, and I was so glad I did when I found your Gone With The Wind party. Please count me in! This is one of my all time favorite movies. You can find me at Loveleigh Treasures! Can't wait!

Sounds like a lot of fun, Nikki! I have some Scarlett dolls. Maybe I can post them. I love GWTW, in fact, we just watched it again a few days ago after touring a plantation house. Kinda makes you in a mood. I guess I can blog about that too, right?...Christine

This is fantastic. I am visiting your blog from the Wizard of Oz Celebration and I looked up out of curiousity about the anniversary of GWTW which is this year.

What a great way to celebrate.

Thank you for thinking of this for us bloggers to honor this wonderful movie.

I can't believe I stumbled upon this blog and found out about this party. I am kind of new to the blogging world and I am not sure what I am suppose to be doing for this party. Just blog about GWTW and share what I have? I LOVE the movie (all time fav.) and have read the book soo many times I have practically memorized it. I have collected TONS of stuff over the years. I am in even though I am not real sure what I am supposed to be doing....Please advise....Sooo excited, Debbie....
