A few weeks ago the Life Enrichment Director at Independence Village [Senior Living] in Plymouth, MI called about doing a Gone With the Wind presentation at a tea party on September 28th. I agreed since The Whitney's Autumn & Apples tea will be over by then.
I did a Gone With the Wind presentation in 2013 and 2015, and toured the Gone With the Wind museum in Marietta, GA in 2018, but I haven't given the book or movie much thought since. So in between working on the Autumn & Apples tea favors for work, I've been trying to get my thoughts in order for the presentation.
I ordered a piece of fabric from the movie's 70th Anniversary  from Etsy, to make a table covering for my display table. I'll sew it to some brown fabric since there wasn't enough material for the project.
I want to engage the residents, so I'm going to have a fun, easy quiz with a prize. I ordered two adult coloring books to give along with some colored pencils. Coloring is supposed to be very therapeutic and relaxing, right?
I never thought I had enough Gone With the Wind memorabilia to fill a tote, but between my newest acquisitions plus items I previously had, I can easily fill a tote now. I had forgotten what I had until I did a search on my blog to jog my memory. It resulted in spending most of this afternoon locating everything. It'll definitely be a time saver to have everything organized and together in one place.
Moving on... The jewelry company that made the tea-themed ring that I blogged about previously, posted a sterling silver teacup pendant today on Facebook. It's much more reasonable than the ring [originally $59 on sale for $24], so I'm thinking about ordering it as a trial run. I wouldn't be heart-broken if I lost $24, and if it arrives safely and the quality is as nice as the pictures, I might be brave enough to order the ring. Their website says they have a 30-day return policy if you're not satisfied. Will keep you posted.
