Well, I'm jealous that you're an Ingrid. She's so pretty and classy. I'm a BETTE! Bette Davis is not one of my favorite actresses, for sure. I need to think of someone who's like her but more appealing to substitute! Ha

Hey Janelle...or should I call you Ingrid?! I took that or a similar quiz too...I'm a Kate (Hepburn)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Always fun to meet someone new. I'm going to guess that you were referring to the red and green hat? Everybody seems to be liking that one! I guess I need to get out there thrifting and find me some more funkily textured old sweaters!

I can totally see you as an Ingrid.

I think mine is fairly accurate, yeah. Sassy, I called her and I think that fits me too.
