Movie Monday Treasury: Funny Face

Ooooo, I just LOVE a treasury. I also happen to be a big fan of movies and thought making treasuries inspired by said films would be super fun.

I present to you my first Movie Monday Treasury. I hope with these I inspire you do a little etsy shopping and also bone up on some GREAT (or maybe not so great) films.

So our first Movie Monday Treasury is the Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astair, Kay Thompson classic, Funny Face.

So enjoy my Etsy finds that are inspired by this upbeat and utterly lovely piece of Hollywood history:

Funny Face is an ugly duckling story...of course, there is no way this movie could ever convince anyone that Audrey is even a tiny bit of an ugly anything! The plot goes like this: photographer (Fred), plucks the reluctant Audrey out of quirky, bookshop obscurity to turn her into a model. And not just any model...THE NEW modern woman for Kay Thompson's movie version of Vogue. They travel to Paris, take lots of pictures of the ever so gorgeous Audrey, fall in love and sing. It's a cinematic confection perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Everything in the treasury is inspired by or referenced in the movie...if there are any you're scratching your head over, then all the more reason to see it again.

Of course, Audrey is divine, Fred is goofy but suprisingly handsome and Kay Thompson is my favorite. If you're not familiar, look no farther than the children's classic Eloise...Kay is the "writer" but really she IS Eloise. She made up the character and would perform her for lunch dates and others for a laugh until brilliantly writing it all down and inspiring little (and big) girls everywhere to love the city and get into trouble.

Sigh...I must now watch this again. As for you, rent it, Netflix it, find it. You won't be sorry!
