Movie Inspired Crafts: Amélie

If you have the Monday blues, put on some Yann Tiersen and dream of summer in Montmartre. Better yet, grab a bottle of wine and your dvd player because today’s movie inspired crafts come from Amélie! It’s quirky and whimsical nature is bound to make you forget about the week ahead. And if not, well, at least you had wine!

And for one of my favorite lines from the film:

Voilà, ma petite Amélie, vous n’avez pas des os en verre. Vous pouvez vous cogner à la vie. Si vous laissez passer cette chance, alors avec le temps, c’est votre cœur qui va devenir aussi sec et cassant que mon squelette. Alors, allez y, nom d’un chien!”

Translation: So, my little Amélie, you don’t have bones of glass. You can take life’s knocks. If you let this chance pass, eventually, your heart will become as dry and brittle as my skeleton. So, go get him, for Pete’s sake!

    I love that movie! It’s my favorite! He inspires me in many aspects of life. I I framed the cover of the dvd and put on the wall of my house. But I still have the will to do something inspired by this film for decoration. This post reminded me of my desire, thank you!

      Aww how sweet is that! I think Amelie would certainly approve :)

      You could always paint your bedroom red– her apartment was amazing!

  • Amy @ Homey Oh My!

    Aaaaah I looooove Amelie! I haven’t seen it since it first came out. EXCELLENT reminder to watch it again.
    I’ll say it every time- this is the best blog column there ever was. SO so creative.

    • Rachel Mae Smith

      Yesss! You know, I haven’t seen it in forever either. It’s too bad we don’t live close to one another. And thank you for your kind words about this column. Happy you like it Amy :)

    Aww, LOVE this post! Amelie is the best.

    • Rachel Mae Smith

      Yay! Thanks Aileen! This column is just a great excuse for me to re-watch some of my favorite movies :)

  • Hannah (The Homesteady)

    Such a good reminder that I need to get my freaking copy of this movie back from one of my coworkers. One of the best!!

    • Rachel Mae Smith

      Oh heck yes you do! I can see why they kept it :)
