"Jump in a cab and go to Tiffany's".....



I don’t want to own anything until I find a place where me and things go together. I’m not sure where that is but I know what it is like. It’s like Tiffany’s.”

You might've guessed that Breakfast at Tiffany's is a favourite :) I'm sure Holly Golightly aka Audrey Hepburn would have been very much at home in Tiffany & Co. Perth, sitting pretty in the 1905 Victorian design building on King Street! When I took these shots the windows were dressed 'Gatsby' style. As yet I've not received one of Tiffany's iconic little blue boxes.. perhaps it's not too late :)) Hope you have a wonderful weekend, take care. Linking to James's Weekend Reflections.

  12. What a gorgeous reflection... I just love the composition on the first one. What a great eye you have for those details...

  13. Oh beautiful reflections, so lush! One of my first sights upon moving to New York City after college was Tiffany's - and from exactly the angle Audrey Hepburn approached it in the movie. It was a very happy accident and of course I was all goggle eyed! (Oh, the movie's main Moon River theme was composed by Johnny Mercer - a descendant of an illustrious Scot soldier who died at Princeton Battlefield in 1777 and is considered a town hero:)

  18. What a gorgeous window display. You can count on Tiffnay's to come up with an elegant display the features something precious. While I was in Chicago in June, I took a picture of the front of the Tiffany store there. The one here is in a mall so it's not as dramatic.

  20. Can't believe you did this post Grace - youngest daughter and SIL have departed Tiffany's (NYC) in the past few days and are at this moment enjoying the architecture of New Orleans. :)

  21. I once went to a lecture at the Phoenix Art Museum on the history of Tiffany silver, and the author of a book on the subject was there to sign the books. They said if you bought one of the books they would give it to you in a Tiffany blue box. The had ladies from Tiffany to help give out the books and boxes, etc.

    I bought one of the books and almost said that the best thing about getting the blue box is that when I re-gift something I could put it in the blue box and the recipient would think that it is from Tiffany's. But I didn't.

  22. Great window display. I can my niece to decorate a box in blue and send it to you if you like. I didn't know there was a shortage of cardboard over there.
