Dr. Zhivago
Sex and the City
Indiana Jones (any sequel)
Big Trouble in Little China
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Seven Year Itch
Bonnie and Clyde
Maltese Falcon
Annie Hall
The Blues Brothers
SEND OVER ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND REMEMBER.....her career has just started, get in on the bottom and someday you might be able to say....."I knew her when"....
*****pictures, costumes and concept from the brains of my darling very talented daughter...


Susie Q said...

Oh wow Sue. I think this may be the sweetest, most ingenious thing I have ever seen! Okay, so Sophie is absolutely a doll baby. That is a given. But these pictures, the outfits, the entire idea is so fabulous. Especially to a die hard movie lover like me.

I love them all and it WAS hard for me to choose but I have to go with Annie Hall in September.
I adore Diane Keaton, and although Diane is NO Sophie, I still loved her style and the movie is a classic.

I have to go back and look again...once is NOT enough!! Then I will post about it on blog. This is too wonderful for ewveryone NOT to see!!

Happy new year you talented and creatve lady you!


Sue said...

Thanks Susie!! I'd love to take credit for these wonderful pictures but daughter took the pictures, made all the costumes including the hats!! and was head baby wrangler during the photo shoots....The Breakfast at Tiffany's was actually taken in the front window of Tiffanys in New York...and Gone with the Wind was taken on the porch of the old New Jersey Governers Mansion....I'm my daughter's biggest fan....glad you enjoyed them and yes, please tell all your friends to stop by!!

Anna Lefler said...

Breakfast at Tiffany's, natch! (An all-time favorite of mine.)

That post is truly inspired - awesome!

Happy New Year...



Laura @ the shorehouse. said... of laughter! I've been stalking you this past week (in a good way) waiting for the debut of Sophie's 2009 calendar and I have to say, this exceeded my expectations. BRAVA, Mlle. Sophie! I'm torn between all of them, especially Dr. Zhivago (hello...Lara's Theme is where the mom got the idea for my name. Yes; I'm Laura so not sure what happened there. But all of my childhood music boxes played Lara's Theme) AND Sophie In the City...'cause, well, it's FABULOUS! Would have been hysterical if a bus drove by and splashed her. :-) Thank you for sharing your newest calendar. I think I'm in love.

And thank YOU for making my year so much better!!! Your kind words, your kind deeds (I made a holiday window garland out of your ice cream cones!) and the kindness that is's amazing blogs brought us together. Yay, technology!

Happy new year!
xo, Laura

OMG! Sophie is so adorable... too cute! You are so creative. How do you pick just one??? Breakfast at Tiffany's, so cute! Gone with the Wind, too funny! Big trouble in little China, I thought I was the only one that loved that movie lol. But I will have to go with Elf, (Sophie makes the cutest elf) one of my favorite movies, and one that I love to quote. "Smiling's my favorite"

Kathleen Grace said...

This has got to be one of the cutest things I have ever seen! How to choose a favorite picture of this fabulous child? I guess I would have to go with the seven year itch in June. I cracked up when I saw her in the dress. Even if I don't win this is the most adorable give away ever! I believe Miss Sophie is going to be a star1

ThirtySomethingMommy said...

Your daughter sent these to me too! I loved them - couldn't pick just one. My favs are Breakfast at Tiffanys and Annie Hall.....and Sophie in the City. Happy New Year to you!

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Oh. My. Gosh. I LOOOOVE this. This is the cutest thing I've seen in I don't know when! Your daughter is really talented to pull all of these off. I got such a kick out of "Breakfast at Tiffany's," that I think I'll choose that as my favorite, although I also loved the little Annie Hall outfit she made for Sophie. They were ALL great.

How fun!! :-)

Linda Lou said...

This is a hoot!! How clever of your daughter, it is hard to decide which one is the cutest, but I have to go with Annie Hall, it is one of my all time favorite movies, so admire Diane Keaton and am a big Woodie Allen fan...but wait I loved Dr. Zhivago too You have got a rising star there on your hands, Oscar here she comes.

nikkicrumpet said...

OMG what a clever idea! All they are all so dang cute how can you narrow it down?? I guess my fav is "breakfast at Tiffany's" It was the hair that pushed me over the edge. This is the cutest dang post!!!

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

Sue, this is the cutest post ever! Sophie is just adorable in any pose, but I think my favorite is Annie Hall, with Bonnie and Clyde running a close second!

Neabear said...

This is such a cute post and a very clever idea of your daughter's. I can't decide on the movie. But I guess I will go with Annie Hall. I have never seen that one. Wonderful post! You must be one proud grandma-lady.

Unknown said...

Oh I have to PICK just ONE! They are all precious!. I guess my all time favorites are Sophie in the City and Breakfast at Tiffany! The costumes are wonderful but Ms. Sophie is just too cute for words. I found your blog through Rabbit Run Cottage and am adding your blog to my favorites.

Mary said...

OMG, how CUTE is that?!!! It's really hard to choose a favorite, because they are all adorable, and funny. but I guess I'd have to go with May -- Breakfast at Tiffany's. I adore Audrey Hepburn. :)

Hope you had a wonderful holiday, Sue, and I wish you and your lovely family a very happy new year!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

Oh my goodness. This is precious. I can't believe you put together all those outfits and she let you! Adorable, just adorable!

Laura Marchant said...

Oh my! This is so cute! I love the sex and the city one! too cute!

Salmagundi said...

I'm in love with Sophie. I loved her Marilyn Monroe dress, but the look on her face in Elf was my favorite. The only thing better than the calendar would be to hug Miss Sweet Cheeks in person. Thank your daughter for sharing her talent. Sally

Deb said...

Really clever! Little Sophie loves the camera, doesn't she? Being from Atlanta, I love the Gone With the Wind photo...she is such a doll!

Anonymous said...


I came over from Nikki Crumpet..

All those pictures are adorable and I would have to say that I loved Sophie in the Blues Brothers as one of my favorites. She really takes to the camera.

You are also the 3rd blogger I found in or near Atlanta like me, how cool is that.


Lisa Pogue said...

I came here via Susie Q @ Rabbit Run and I am soooo very glad I did. My goodness I cannot imagine missing out on Sophie's calender. It's hared to pick a fav, but I'd have to say Breakfast at Tiffany's. Elf and Bonnie and Clyde are close. I'll be back to visit. Way fun!!!

Oh, my gosh! These are excellent! Although it's such a close call because I love all of them, I think that Sophie in the City is my favorite.
Too good!

Pedaling said...

I'm going with feb-sophi in the city. it was hard to choose though, because she is so dang cute!

Donna said...

Sophie is ADORABLE, Sue! Love them all.

Wishing you a Happy New Year!


Liz Harrell said...

Oh my goodness, that is the most precious child. And those pictures! "Sophie and the City" cracked me up. She's such a doll.

I'd have to go with Breakfast at Tiffany's. Gotta love Audrey.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

What an beautiful grand daughter you have Sue! The calender is adorable and so imaginative! I love all the costumes and poses --Sophie is such a sweet charmer!

I have a hard time picking one as they are all great, but "The Seven Year Itch" is my birthday month so that gets my vote!

Happy 2009!

Hugs, Pat

Quirky Cottage Owners said...

All 12 of the Sophie pix are just precious. It's a toss up between "Seven Year Itch" and Sophie Spade made me LOL. Too cute.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Well, considering the fact that Sophie is the cutest thing ever, I guess I will say that I like her Marilyn Monroe "Seven Year Itch" attire. I just think she's a hoot in that cute white dress... so Marilynesque. LOL! And I love that picture of her dressed for "Breakfast At Tiffany's"... where did you get these??? Did you make them, Sue??? She is just the cutest thing going! :-)

Thanks for having this drawing. You're the best!

Cindy said...

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Fabulous! I reallllly enjoyed the pics!


Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

PS: I forgot to tell you my favorite photo....they are all great, but I think she looks a lot like John Belushi with the November shot. HOWEVER, Sophie is MUCH cuter!!!


Holladay Family said...

Wow. With such a gorgeous model it is so hard to choose! I'd say the Elf/December is prob. my fav. THEY ALL ROCK THOUGH! Thanks!

Sue said...

Hi...I want to thank everyone who has stopped by so far to vote on your favorite Sophie picture. So far it seems most of you like Breakfast at Tiffany' was actually taken infront of the Tiffany window on 5th.Ave....My personal favorite is the Maltese Falcon. I don't know how the daughter found the miniature trench coat.....Sophie will be picking the winner of the DVD giveaway on Saturday and some lucky person will be getting a "Movie Night at Home" basket in the mail....thanks again and I'm happy to see such wonderful responses from you all.....Sue..... aka Grandma-Lady.

OMG I love your blog Sue.
My goodness look out Hollywood!! Sophie is a doll.
So many favorites but my first would be "Breakfast at Tiffany's" since it's my favorite place to get that little something, and I mean little.
I blogged about it when hubby and I were there in Nov.
Happy New Year.

Katie @ said...

Oh my gosh! This calendar is something I bet you'll treasure and treasure. It's such a great idea. I'll have to remember it for some day way down the road. In the meantime, my vote is for August. I just love that little face, especially in this picture.
Thanks for giving me the heads up!

Linda O'Neill said...

These are hysterical...a star is born! James and I both like Breakfast at Tiffany's the best...with Sophie in the City as a close second. Priceless!

Happy New Year to you and Boo.xox!

Linda said...

How adorable! She's a doll! It is a very hard decision but I think I will pick Indiana Jones. She did some good acting in that pic!

Anonymous said...

I have looked and looked at them over and over. I cannot pick out just one. But if I have to I would chose the Annie Hall in September. Thanks for the fun. Debbi

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Tami said...

That is so cute! What a great idea. I am thinking your daughter is very clever and of course, your grandbaby is very cute!
I am not sure I can pick a favorite.

Daryl said...

Too wonderfully adorable!

The Bloom Girls said...

Oh mercy! She is too cute for words! I could just smooch those cheeks! My favorite is her Marilyn Monroe look! Where ever did you find that dress? This is the cutest post ever!!

Hope to see you again soon!


{Bellamere Cottage} said...

These are sooooo darn cute, but a gazillion times cuter because your little sweetie is just so darn adorable. I can't wait to see this year's calendar. How clever. I wish my daughter had done this with my little guy.

Huggies and lovies,
