Walter Plunkett sketch of Scarlett O’Hara’s green velvet curtain gown from Gone With the Wind
With the help of Margaret Mitchell, Plunkett learned how clothes were made during the blockade. The women who ran the Daughters of the Confederacy museums in Savannah and Charleston gave him samples of fabric clipped from the hems of skirts and showed him how walnut seeds and stones were made into buttons and how the thorns of thorn bushes were used as pins.

Today’s Bohemea Photo Challenge prompt is: toy.
but some strange unity of flesh and mind.
Your body’s like those ships men must empty
of gold and oil to ride an unweaned sea,
boat of rib and skin, nothing that can bleed
or seas can suck or even death could need,
proving through the stark holds you bear and bring
that the voyage itself was everything. „
Leonard Cohen, 1962
We just rewatched this episode. So romantic!
I use to do this in high school.
Yeah you did!
