For The Love of Audrey...

I adore Audrey Hepburn, as does most of the world.  Such style, grace and selflessness in her humanitarian work.  But she was also a lady who did not have a perfect life, as though it seemed.  Who does, really?

I was given this beautiful book, The Audrey Hepburn Treasures, as a wedding shower gift from my parents two and a half years ago.  It is a compendium of her life, good & bad, and starts with a history of her beginnings up until her death January 20th, 1993. 

It is literally a book of treasures with 12 vellum pockets that contain reproductions of letters, small family photo albums, movie posters and even her wartime identification card (seen below). 

Reading treasury makes me want to watch Breakfast at Tiffany's all over again.

That is so cool! You know I just watched Breakfast at Tiffany's a couple months ago for the first time. I know, slap me.
