Happy 75th Anniversay to my beloved Gone With the Wind!

75 years ago today~ June 30, 1936 ~ Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind was published! I'm sure Windies everywhere are celebrating!
In the summer of 2003, my husband and I took a GWTW vacation. (Thanks again Kevin!!) We visited The Margaret Mitchell House in Atlanta, The Road to Tara Museum in Jonesboro, the Scarlett on the Square Museum in Marietta, and then drove on up to Savannah, GA.
Here is a slideshow of some of the photos from the trip~ minus Savannah~
It was so awesome to stand in the same room where Margaret had typed out her masterpiece.

Those smokey pics and hoodlums hanging out on their cars... that was at our hotel one night. The entire place was full of street racers. Long story~ but we got our money back.

I've been trying to cut back on my GWTW spending and collecting. Recently, I was SO excited to have won a blog give away prize! A 75th Anniversary edition of the book! YAY! I probably would not have purchased this for myself and am a very happy camper! 75th Anniversary Gone With the Wind

Thank you very much dear Kate! Please visit her at Southern Belle Simple~ a darling blog!
