Could You Imagine?

I was looking through a link of photos from around the world and stumbled across this:

Cara Varnell, an independent art conservator who specializes in Hollywood film costumes, works with the green velvet gown from the film "Gone With the Wind," Tuesday, July 19, 2011, in Austin, Texas. The Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas is working to preserve five of the dresses acquired with the collection of film producer David O. Selznick in the 1980s. (AP Photo/Eric Gay)

Could you imagine touching something so beautiful? Such a symbol of one of the greatest cinema pieces ever to grace Hollywood. I could gush for days about the cast, costumes, scenery, screenplay....

One of my all time favorite movies.

I could not ever imagine being able to be one of the few ever in its presence let alone touch it. What a bucket list thing to do! Such a lucky lady -

  1. I was in a class called "History of Western Dress" my freshman year of college and we got to work with all these beautiful old gowns, chemises, and even undergarments (yuck). But it was really neat :)
