She held up this:
I can assure you that I don't own a dress like that, nor have I ever worn red lipstick, but yes, honey, that's mommy!
Well actually it's none other than Scarlett O'Hara Hamilton Kennedy Butler.
My most favorite of literary characters in my most favorite of books.
Now, if there are any of you out there who have not read Gone with the Wind, stop what you are doing and correct that immediately. Stop reading this post, postpone Christmas, cancel New Years, go read the book.
Your kids might not be happy, but you will thank me later.
As much as I like to poke fun at Pat the Bunny for all of
Well she told me, silly.That, and her tree is covered in these:
Oh and look at her here...
Ready to take on the world, one man-sized candy cane at a time. Don't you find the non-peppermint kind to be the most delicious? I'm sure Scarlett does, she's just a non traditional kind of gal.
When she got to this one, Alex said-- "It's me and Daddy!"
But of course, it's Rhett with his little Bonnie Blue. Naturally I can understand the confusion, as Alex's Daddy is also talk, dark, and handsome. Though he doesn't pull off the mustache in quite the same manner. Rhett's manages to avoid the look that says "I'm walking around a playground with a leash but no puppy."
And here's one I like to call "Indecent Proposal"
Proposing to a woman in widow's mourning. Oh, that scoundrel.
And here with Ashley, who doesn't hold a candle to Rhett Butler.
This ornament reenacts the jailhouse scene with audio and moving parts:
And this one. This one is my favorite.
Oh, the romance.
Josh? Are you out there? Come home soon. I need some romance in my life.
And this one I call, Happily Ever After.
And that ends this evening's production of "Gone with the Wind", as told by Pat the Bunny's Christmas tree.
