Death Becomes Her A Century of Mourning Attire

If you are in New York, or visiting between now and February, there is an amazing collection of mourning gowns at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibit opened this week featuring Gowns from 1815 to 1915. Slideshow of gallery images and more information available here. I know there is some cross over with readers here who enjoy Victorian Mourning attire. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be a catalogue for the exhibit to order on the web site.

Pumpkin Painting

Planning to pick up a white boo pumpkin. Like the simple clean black and white design. Source. Painting keeps the pumpkins around post Halloween but not as much fun as carving. The last 3 years we haven't carved and went for the natural look. Keeping the pumpkins, squash, straw, and corn stalks out through Thanksgiving.

Halloween Black Roses and Wreath

The wreath doesn't appeal to me but making duct tape or Gorilla tape roses sounds like fun. You can find a materials list and How To video at Lowe's.
