A Fair Lady – Audrey Hepburn

AuIMG_0158drey Hepburn exuded a sophistication, class and elegance which has been reserved for the era of legendary movie stars.

When I grew up, I recall having watched My Fair Lady several times. Also Gigi and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. She has had quite a collection of movies, but My Fair Lady has always stuck with me. Her transformation; as a poor flower girl selling her wares on the street, to indeed a fair lady, in the movie, mesmerised me as a young girl growing. I found these photo-framed quotes — when overseas and other quotes which I enjoyed.

Quotes

  • Nothing is impossible, the word itself says: ‘I’m possible’!
  • True friends are families which you can select.
  • To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.
  • FIMG_0153or beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
  • I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.

 

 

  • IMG_0152Opportunities don’t often come along. So, when they do, you have to grab them.
  • Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm. As you get older, remember, you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.

Found in a Stairwell

I photographed these framed quotes and photographs in a stairwell; similar to an emergency stairway, of a building while I was overseas many years ago. I felt a little sad that they were hidden away, but then I thought perhaps if people had to use the stairway it would take their mind off things.

B&W Collection of Legendary Female Movie Stars

I am quite surprised at what can be found on Pinterest. I found some photos and quotes for my wall. I will continue to add to my collection as I find some of my  favourite legendary movie stars.

I used to have a big black and white 300 page book, with a collection of legendary classic female movie stars.  It had close ups and fashion of their era. I loved that book, but somehow it has long disappeared into the ether.

However, with Pinterest, I am able to build up my collection again so I can enjoy that classy era of elegant movie stars once more.

  1. What a lovely set of memories here. My 20 year old granddaughter likes images and movies of Audrey Hepburn. The actress had a pretty tough start in life from what I recall. Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek 8/52. Next week: Taking Stock
