In honor of Margaret Mitchell's birthday on Friday this post is about my visit to her home/museum in Atlanta. Mitchell, the author of Gone With the Wind, and her second husband lived in an apartment in this gorgeous home. It has since been turned into a museum in her honor.
I took a tour of the apartment and saw where she typed the novel. There's also a small area dedicated to the movie with huge paintings for the costumes. I loved learning more about Mitchell, who was such a spitfire! She never did what was expected of her and frankly it's a miracle the novel was published. She had no intention of publishing it.
I'm so glad I got a chance re-read Gone With the Wind before visiting Atlanta. It's such a wonderful novel, so full of history and life. Read it!
More Wordless Wednesday here.
