Hard to believe iconic beauty, Audrey Hepburn, was teased as a young girl for being tall, lanky and having large eyes. When I picked up this book, Being Audrey, I fell in love with each illustration and cannot wait to frame some of the images in a little girl’s room…especially the one with Audrey and her dog. Children will be inspired by reading the story of Audrey’s life illustrated in watercolor.
The handcrafted Audrey pin I recently bought in Korea is a reminder that she was beloved all over the world.
You can get the same look by printing a favorite Audrey image onto a fabric transfer sheet. Iron on the transfer onto silk or cotton and sew it into a small pillow pin.
I don’t know about you but I hate the words craft, crafty, or crafter. Luckily, sites like etsy.com are showcasing craft as a hip art form.
I recently discovered a tool called the Fiskars Crank Hand Drill that instantly changed the way I create home accessories. The product claims it drills a clean hole in paper, plastic and even metal. It is under $20 so I thought I would give it a whirl.
I dusted off an old metal candelabra, which never had enough holes to hang a stylish cluster of crystals, and put the hand drill to work. I was shocked how easily and perfectly the drill pierced the metal. I made perfect holes all around my candelabra and was able to hang the vintage crystals my mother had given me.
My next project is to transform a Lucite jewelry box with six drawers with new drawer pulls. In the meantime, I’m enjoying my candelabra all over again
Give it a whirl in your home. Enjoy!
