Buy It Friday is a nice addition to Auntie B’s blogging adventures.  Not only does it give me the opportunity to show some of my fabulous products, it gives you the chance to buy those products directly from this site.  Win-win!

Happy hour combined with book talk is a wonderful thing. Charlotte and I were out for a little happy hour yesterday and we talked a bit about how much we enjoyed reading Margaret Mitchell’s epic novel Gone With The Wind. Neither of us had read the book until recently, though we’ve both seen the movie more than once.

It’s interesting how when one sees the movie before reading the book how the characters in the movie appear in the mind’s eye while reading. Charlotte and I concurred that the casting for the movie Gone With The Wind was superb.

The film was nominated for thirteen Academy awards in 1940 and won eight. Hattie McDaniel (portraying Mammy) was the first African American woman to ever be nominated and win the Oscar for best supporting actress. If you haven’t seen the movie or read the book, I’d recommend both.

In honor of such a great story, with the glamor of the Old South, the frustrated romances, the sheer determination to survive the trials and fall-outs of war, I created a set of drink charms to bring that Southern charm to your party.

Scarlett O’Hara, Mammy, Rhett Butler, Melanie Wilkes, Prissy, Ashley Wilkes

Tara is calling, Scarlett is answering, and Rhett isn’t giving a damn. Oh the heartbreak! The characters in Gone With The Wind would be a great addition to your next party.
