My Breakfast at Tiffany's

Today's post was originally going to begin with a fabulous Wordle I tried to create to honor one of my favorite movies, "Breakfast at Tiffany's." However, my computer is not cooperating with me right now so just pretend you that what you see up there is a real Wordle and not this fake thingy I'm trying to pass off as one. If you have a moment, why not visit Shannon's Wordle Weekends at Last Shreds of Sanity to join the Wordle fun?! (I love making Wordles...not sure why "my precious" (aka computer) is being so persnickety this morning.....)

Back to my Breakfast at Tiffany's....




If I were having breakfast at Tiffany's this morning, this is what I would order off of the "menu"...

I'd start with some gorgeous key pendants....I love keys...I have them all over my home in all shapes and sizes...

Then I'll have this....and I should probably order these off the "menu" too....
and then I should have some dessert....
I will have to buy some souvenirs to commemorate this very special breakfast....I think these little beauties are just the ticket....Holly Golightly shades and a Tiffany "blue box" charm....

Yummmmmy....that is the most pleasurable breakfast I've ever had!

Audrey Hepburn was a shining light during her life, and her life is an inspiration to me. She was an amazing humanitarian, a classic beauty and lived her life with great integrity. I loved her style...she made wearing capris, a button down shirt and flats an iconic fashion statement...I love this look still....absolutely timeless...and of course, who could forget that gorgeous black dress and pearls....sigh.......

She would often quote her favorite poem by Sam Levenson....you may be familiar with it...It is the perfect meaning of real beauty...I love it too...

Time Tested Beauty Tips....

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.

Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows. “

~~~~****~~~~****~~~~****~~~~****~~~~

I am off to grab a real Holly Golightly inspired breakfast of croissants and coffee...then I am going to curl up and watch the movie...It's time to dump the frump and get my girly on! I think I'll throw my hair up in a Holly Golightly French Twist while I'm at it!

Wishing you a very Happy Sunday!

One last thing! Happy Father's Day, Dad!!! We can't wait to see you next week!!!! Love and miss you!

xoxo


P.S. Yes, Chilly, there is a Tiffany's store in Tucson...and how nice of me to give you the 411 on exactly what I need!

At tiffany's....

I like the Jean Schlumberger "X" diamond ring for $6,850 with 18k gold.

You need to add more rings to your wish list.

Caitlin said...

How could he shop for you without the list?? Very considerate of you. :)

blueviolet said...

Thanks a lot, woman. Now I have a new obsession with owning a key pendant. Though I must say when my dream comes true it will be a poor knock-off version.

blognut said...

Just get two of whatever you pick up at Tiffany's. I like all of it.

Magirk said...

Ooooooh, those all look so good to me! I just love, love, love silver and pearls. And that teal/blue or whatever it is, has been my new favorite color for about 2 years - I just can't get enough of it!! I think it's oh so pretty.

I loved the poem too. So true.

mommaof4wife2r said...

love tiffany's...and the tiffany box charm is more than superb!

Natalie said...

Aww, definitely my favorite movie.

For Valentines one year, husband took me there and said "we have $100, get something!"

Just like the movie, where she has $10.

We adjusted for inflation! And it was such a fabulous moment.

Well, however you did that, it sure is pretty dang close replica of a WOrdle. Thank you for trying to hard for me. I have had browser issues this week, too. Which is why I am commenting on last week's WEW THIS week.

Sorry! Do ya still love me? LOL

I am starting to think I have pissed somebody off because I am getting like 2 comments per week on whole blog. SERIOUSLY! It is rather depressing and is making me think I should stop blogging.

I really hate talking to myself. It gets kind of boring after a while.
