November is now the month of moustaches, due to the charity event Movember to raise awareness of prostate cancer, other male cancers and associated charities. Museums were able to take part in this by using the hashtag #musmovember on Twitter, sharing images of muzzy-related objects in their collection, and donating to the cause at the same time. I shared a few objects that I found on MODES, which can be seen on my Twitter feed, and made a donation to one of my friends who was cultivating a ‘tache. I thought I would also share some of the images here too. A really fun task that raised awareness for the event but also allowing access to the more hairy items in various museum collections!
Now it is nearly upon us, I am sharing some Christmassy objects from the collection on Twitter. I am aiming to do an item a day until I leave for the festivities but sometimes I forget with all the various things that are happening at the object stores (Lots of hats coming in for an upcoming Hat Works exhibition, RDing, HILing, accessioning, stores tidying etc. etc.)!
So here are some of the festive finds; I will share a festive object tomorrow, and Wednesday which is my last day before Xmas.
