Audrey!

Well, after Bette Davis, it just followed that I had to do something with the late, great Audrey Hepburn, right? Who hasn't been charmed by the actress who single-handedly made the word "gamine" part of everyone's vocabulary, or who, more importantly, did her best work when she was appointed Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF?

"I believe in pink," she once said. "I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles".

I made a quartet of collage pins for the shop, made with cutouts from vintage magazines and other sweet little bits. Two of them are with dogs, and I added a cat in for good measure. Like the Bette Davis pin, they're intended for sassy, environmentally-friendly kids or adults!

I just love Audrey Hepburn, such a fantastic role model! I am a little heart-broken that they want to remake My Fair Lady, one of my favourite "Audrey" movies. Your collages are a wonderful tribute to her.

These are so fabulous! Audrey's quotes are always an inspiration. Holly Golightly does need Cat. :)

Ah sweet Audrey, the swan necked beauty. She was indeed a beautiful lady both on the outside and in her heart.
