Audrey Hepburn

One of my favourite movies, is Breakfast at Tiffany's ~ for the style, humour and romance.
Audrey Hepburn was one of the most influential females and leaves a lasting impression, with her floating around in the most exquisite Givenchy gowns.
She epitomized Fashion with her pearls, fabulous hats, ballet flats, and silk scarves.

The song "Moon River" was written especially for Audrey Hepburn.

"I love people who make me laugh.
I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh.
It cures a multitude of ill's. It's probably the most important thing in a person"
~ Audrey Hepburn
This photograph of her looking in Tiffany's is fabulous ~ do you think she has her eye on a gorgeous diamond ring?

Just looking at the iconic robin's egg blue box, makes one's heart flutter, without even knowing what is inside.
"Pick the day. Enjoy it ~ to the hilt.
The day as it comes. People as they come....
The past, I think has helped me appreciate the present~ and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future" ~ Audrey Hepburn

Happy week, to all and thank you for your friendship and love.

  20. Hi Carolyn: You always have such an elegant blog. I love everything about it. I have learned alot. Thank you for sharing, Have a wonderful week. Blessings, Martha

  21. Blessings Carolyn!
    Watching Audrey in movies is an enjoyable thing for me...I like her voice.

    She is delightful to see in a variety of movies and I have liked them all.

    I think I need to rent My Fair Lady and watch it along with Breakfast At Tiffanys. I can't think of the name of the film where she plays the part of a blind woman and someone comes to her apartment to harm her. Will have to look that one up on google.

    She was a very classy woman and it's neat to be able to view her films which capture her charm.

    Thank you so very much for the prayers. August 5th I have surgery.

  22. Hi Carolyn,
    Love this post. My grandma and I used to watch Gardens of the World hosted by Audrey on Sunday afternoons. Such a lady of grace and giving. It has always stuck with me, what Audrey said about hunger, for a slim figure, share your food with the hungry! People like Audrey, come along once in a very blue Moon.

  23. Hi Carolyn,
    Do you know I've always wished I could be Audrey? She had such style and grace and was cute as a pixie. I saw Breakfast at Tiffany's recently after some time and quite enjoyed it. I guess I'll just go on dreaming that I could be here...sigh.

  24. Beautiful Audrey. And she smoked herself to death! I used to think it was a pity, but now I think she just liked to smoke! :)

    I love Audrey Hepburn, as well. :)

    Thank you so much for visiting my place, and for your comment, also. :)

  25. very sweet post. its such a classic movie. she has such wonderful quotes too.

  26. One of my all time favorite movies! I cry every time at the end. I love Audrey Hepburn, truly was a beautiful lady.

    And "Moon River" reminds me of my grandfather...he used to sing it all the time at our cabin on the river.

    Thanks for the lovely post and good memories.

    Sending hugs ~ Jenn

  27. Hello dear carolyn - oh I do adore your post today. Sometimes it is just so lovely to slip into a little nostalgia and just enjoy.
    Audrey has that way of doing that to all of us - she is the epitome of style,glamour and that something special. ... lovely that you should showcase her today x

  28. i think one of the most alluring qualities about audrey hepburn was the vulnerability she portrayed.

  29. Your post has made my day. Seriously honey I so needed to read this because I have been so down this past week because I don't seem to be healing so coming by here and reading this has really lifted my spirits.
    I love Audrey and this movie is of course one of my favorites too.
    She was one of a kind and I would of loved to have known her.
    How are you doing? Please know that I think of you often but don't get by here like I want to because of this stupid pain. I am beginning to wonder if I will ever be back to my ole self. Not sure if the Sheriff's dept will have me back..sorry did not mean to come over here and write a book.
    Keep me posted how you are and did you enter my mola giveaway. Your so creative you could use one in many ways

  30. She was a great actress and a great person helping always where she could
    Her style and elegance are inimitable.

  31. Hi Carolyn! Love this post. The quotes are great! ~Mandy

  32. Just watched "Charade"..Audrey with
    Cary Grant in Paris from 1963.
    Another classic film
    Merci for your visit and
    kind words.

  33. Such a pretty post! I know every word to the song Moon River as my older sister was a piano and voice student and she loved practicing this song, but I have to admit I have never seen the movie. I have seen numerous snippets over the years, but never the whole film. Okay, Okay I know I MUST see it and I thank you for reminding me.


  34. I love Audrey Hepburn...and I wish I could have her wardrobe! lol. (and the occasions to use it)


Thank you so much for visiting Draffin Bears.
It always makes me happy to read your comments
and I look forward to visiting you.

Carolyn xx
