A GIVEAWAY FROM ME TO YOU


THIS IS WHERE MELANIE TELLS ASHLEY .....I WILL  LOVE YOU JUST AS I DO NOW  UNTIL I DIE! This was a the Twelve Oaks bar-b-que and their on the balcony and down below everyone is acting fools because they found out the War had started.

I have watched this movie more times than most southern belles and I did not catch this beautiful saying until the other night.  I honestly use to watch it because of Rhett and his love for Scarlett but now that I am older and much much wiser I watch it because of Melanie. If only I could be as sweet as her....ahhhh but no it is not to be Ms Pearl will not let it happen.

Now to the giveaway! Lets make this simple this time around. If your a follower or join as a follower  and you leave a comment on this post or the any of the next Temptation Mondays posts then you are entered in the contest.  If you put it on your site then you automatically win...opps I meant to say your name will be put in 10 more times. lol
 You have a choice of one of the many Gone With the Wind  collectors plates  or the famous Ms Rubys Fudge or Peanut Clusters. You also have a choice of White Chocolate Peanut Clusters or the Chocolate Peanut Clusters.  The decisions is yours.  This giveway will end on December 28, 2009 midnight central standard time.
I will try to post some pictures on here of the different plates that I have. Hope Santa brings me a digital so I can share my Christmas decorations with all of you too.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU AND ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!

SWEET DREAMS!

Oh Maggie, this is one of my all time favorite movies! Born and raised in the south and now living in the Atlanta area, so many of the expressions and landmarks are so meaningful. I just loved Scarlett's determination and the story of strength and love of the characters.
I would love another chance to win some of your delicious (I'm sure) chocolat'...
Love your sweet generous spirit Miss Maggie~~you are a doll!

Christmas Joy and Hugs~
Lynn♥

Nikia, May and da kids said...

Try not to be surprised but I have only seen parts of the movie when I was about 5 or around that age. I never had reason to want to watch it. I guess now that I'm older, I can watch it.
Shocking huh??

I have seen this movie many times and read the book twice. A classic if ever there was one. I say yes to your giveaway. Hugs Elaine

Julie said...

Oh, I LOVE that movie! It's definitely time to watch it again and introduce it to my younger daughters--don't think they've ever seen it...Bad Mom Award! You're so sweet to do a giveaway--count me in!

Love your fun posts--you're a creative, funny woman--with or without Ms. Pearl!

Libbie said...

Oh I do think my sister (Auntie Cake) has read the book 10 or more times. I think she reads that darn thing at least once a year :) If I win the plate I do think I would have to gift it to her...maybe for her birthday...she is my OLDER sister & if she dies I'll get it back (I know she always reads my comments on other people's pages :)

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Nothing better than Gone with the Wind! When I read the book, when I was a teen, I stayed up all night for a week until I finished it. And what a movie! Wonderful! laurie

Sares said...

I saw the movie was on the other night but I didn't watch it, but my Mom did and she said they had some interesting clips after wards like old screen tests and sets. I was so disappointed I missed the aftershow because this is one of my favorite movies too! I actually always liked Melanie, I thought Scarlett was a naughty brat, however as far as the men go~ give me Rhett any time. Ashley is a bit of a wimp. Oops, did I just say that, LOL!

I will definitely be adding your giveaway to my sidebar. I have several sweet teeth I have to satisfy regularly.

Thank you for coming by and leaving such nice compliments, I'm glad you found me too!

Marilyn said...

Great post!! I too have watched this movie until I could probably play the parts myself!! I never really liked Scarlett as I thought she was a lousy friend & person in general. I always loved Melanie but she too had personality issues...(no one is that sweet & understanding)!! LOL!!
(I see Melanie as passive aggressive & a closet drinker just to tolerate Scarlett on a daily basis) LOL!! LOL!! LOL!!
Just kidding!!
Merry, Merry Christmas!!
Marilyn

Protege said...

Of course, how could I have failed to know that this was a line from the most melancholic love drama of them all.;)
I loved Melanie...
Again, I abstain from the giveaway due to my location.
Have a lovely Friday,

PS: I simply LOVE the picture of sleeping Toby on the sidebar.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Good Morning Sweet Friend...
Oh what a wonderful movie, Gone With the Wind. What a treasure it is every time I watch it. Who could ever forget.."Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn." It was so daring.

I always loved their dresses. They were so beautiful. I think I would have loved that era.

Thank you for sharing sweetie. Please enter me into the giveaway. I would adore a plate. How fun would that be?

Country hugs to you and Ms Pearl. Love, Sherry

Jenny S said...

Ahhhh! I cannot believe I missed this! I have watched this movie so many times! I even asked for it on Blueray this year for Christmas and hubby asked why? You have the VHS, the DVD and even the old laser disc...hehehe!

Nezzy said...

Did somebody say Fudge? I'm in all the way especially if chocolate is involved. Heck, this Ozarks farm chick would bathe in the stuff if it wouldn't stop up the plumbin' in the old jacuzzi tub! OOooo just makes me tingle thinkin' about it. I just love a great giveaway!

Ya'll have a wonderful day!!! God bless you....

Shabby Cottage Studio said...

I love your blog banner, it reminds me of my sister and me. And my chocoholic tastebuds went drooling over the fudge. But don't worry, I wiped it all up so no one will know. Merry Christmas Maggie!

Menopausal New Mom said...

What a great idea for a giveaway! I'm in!!!

The Rustic Victorian said...

Oh boy, another 10 days to see the peanut clusters on my sidebar. I gain weight just looking at them last time,,,but I don't care anymore! I'm in! I will put them on the side bar of my blog.
The movie is a good one for sure.

Jennifer said...

I just can't help it - I loved Brett and Miss Mellie the best - Scarlett be damned! But I do love sweets! Went down the same bumpy road after 23 years and a hubby that decided he wanted to "date" I survived - have two great sons - no grandchildren yet but life is weet too. Hope springs eternal...Hugs to you! Jennifer

Arkansas Patti said...

What a wonderful give away. Too bad I will be gone. GWTW was released the year I was born and I first saw it when about 5. The soldier getting shot in the head scared me for a long time. As my romantic nature grew, so did my love for that classic story. One of the only movies that I will watch again and again.

Midlife Mom said...

Oh I just love that movie! Also love Carol Burnett's rendition of it on her old show!! Remember her dress out of the drapes? They don't make them like that any more!

Diane said...

Maggie, I'm not posting so much to win the goodies - I always feel odd about maybe seeming greedy - but more because I've enjoyed reading your humorous posts and wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog, becoming a follower and for your sweet compliments! And, because you are such a hoot! I can't imagine doing what you do! Changing dirty diapers was enough!
:-O

Have a happy weekend!
Diane

Auntie Cake said...

Okay, in my defense, I usually don't read my sisters comments on other peoples pages. But I sure did this one! And in my defense, people always have to ask which of us is older... And I totally have read Gone with the Wind WAY more than 10 times. More like 100! I have the whole dang thing memorized by now... Sisters! Sheesh!

Sweet giveaway you have here. I can taste that fudge now!!!

ALVN of WhisperWood Cottage and Junkologie said...

I don't think I have ever seen Gone with the Wind all the way through. A shame, I know. However, I make up for it with my viewings of The Sound of Music! I hear the chocolate peanut clusters calling my name!

Gone with the Wind is my all time favorite movie....don't you just love Scarlett in the drapes? I just saw a clip of Carol Burnett doing a bit with the curtain rod still in the other night.........FuNNy!

Please throw me into the hat too......I think I NEED some chocolate!

I hope following privately counts. I have your blog on my blog list. Not usre if that is what you mean. GWTW is a favorite classic. I wonder if there is a soul in US who has not seen it at least once.

Sue @ Not the Good Scissors! said...

Next to Gone With the Wind, the Wizard of Oz is one of my favorites.

I wonder if many of us have ever the book, Gone With the Wind. I know I haven't.
Hugs, Sue

Sniffles and Smiles said...

How could anyone not choose chocolate? :) And of course I'm a follower! blessings, marlene

Linda K. said...

We watched GWTW the other night too. They just don't make movies like that anymore. I was born in Memphis so does that make me a southern belle? We traveled all over the eastern part of the U.S. when I was a kid. I remember my mother saying my brother and I had a 'southern drawl'. I love it and love the south 'cept when it's hot.
Love fudge, I don't need it, I want it. Thanks sweetie.

Hey Maggie. I could have sworn I entered this but don't want to miss out. If I did already please cancel this one (or give me a 100 entries) whichever you prefer. LOL.

I too love this movie and watch it all the time. Now I would love to have some of that wonderful fudge to go with it.

And I'm still following you my dear!

Hello Maggie!! Wow just noticed your giveaway..Oh yes please enter me!! My Mom will be 90 in Febuary and she saw the original Gone With The Wind in NYC with my Grandmother when it came out in 1938. When I was growing up mom would always tell me little snippets from the movie. When I was 15 I read the book on my summers vacation and then saw the movie the first time with my Mom that same summer. Now flash forward years later I am living in Georgia since 2006.. We have been to the GWTW museum in Marrietts Ga. which is so interesting and contains the hat "Bell" wore....Anyway I love the story Lets see my mother loves chocolate and so do I and we love Gone with the Wind...tough choice!!
Love ya Maggie...I will post this on my site as well!! Always following...Susan in Georgia!

RobbinB said...

Love your blog and Gone with the Wind. How right you are. We should strive to Melanie instead of that Scarlet.
