A Passion for Life!

P a s s i o n
Audrey Hepburn was a delightful and passionate woman.
I enjoy so many of her movies. This image is from
"Breakfast at Tiffany's" ~ which is not my favorite movie
of hers, I prefer her others much more, (but oh those jewels!!!)
but she definately played a passionate woman in it.
I'm not refering to that word as in a 'romantic love'
type of emotion, but in terms of

for something

An excitement for life!

What causes great enthusiasm to burst forth from your heart?
And which is your favorite Audrey Hepburn movie?
(or movies)

I designed this piece on a 4" x 4" canvas board,
embellished with glitter,
jewels, jeweled black lace, silk ribbons,
and rubber stamped swirls, and sent to my blogging friend
Anita at Castles, Crowns and Cottages,
as a "thank you" for a kind gesture.
when you visit her you will find a woman of passion!

(An art piece similar to this ~ and others ~ will be available soon
in my new online boutique which is in the making)

VIOLET!!!! WOOWOWOWOWOW! Merci dix mille fois, you sweet, fabulous and talented woman, you. First of all, I am with you all the way regarding Audrey's movies. While Breakfast at Tiffany's is not my favorite, she is still adorable and a joy to WATCH. My favorite has to be Roman Holiday and all the others are my second favorites! Funny Face, Charade, see this fabulous piece that I love so much on your blog really makes me feel so special. I just adore and cherish these lovely pieces you sent me. YOU SPOIL ME!

They are in my studio, hanging next to "A Penny a Bunch", the print that connected us earlier this year!

I wish you a fabulous weekend, and thank YOU for all your kindnesses!

Bisous, Anita

I happened on your daughter's blog and got here. My favorite Audrey Hepburn movie was not so glamourous, but it kept me on the edge of my seat: Wait Until Dark.
