3M: mustaches, movember, and Mary

It is November. A month to remember. A month to write your novel. A month to prepare for winter. November is also a month to grow out your mustache. It is lovely to see Movember gain some substantial traction this year. This movement will hopefully bring more awareness to prostate cancer. Our friend singer/songwriter Mary Stewart is working alongside Movember Canada and offering a fun personalized song to anyone who donates via her Movember Canada page. Oh that Mary – she is ever so clever. She dropped in just before heading out to the photoshoot for her Movember page and picked herself up a mustache on a stick. Doesn’t she look fabulous? We still have more mustaches on a stick as well as mini mustache felty pins. Fun beyond movember, these goodies would be awesome to stuff in a stocking or for a wedding photoshoot, bachelorette party, birthday party, Christmas/New Year dinner party – let’s face it ANY PARTY!

This Saturday is my grandfather’s 90th birthday. (Hi Papa!) It is also one of the most fun, interesting, and anticipated annual events in Halifax. This  Saturday, October 15 night is Nocturne – Art at Night. From 6pm – midnight our city of Halifax is alive with art and culture projects, installations, and shows open to everyone. If you haven’t been, you need to clear your schedule pronto and make plans stat.

Love, Me Boutique is not only a big fan of Nocturne, we are also one of the Nocturne sites. Every year since we have opened, we have concentrated our efforts on having an interactive activity as well as having the shop open for visitors. In our first year, we had a DIY 1″ button station. In year two, we hosted a portraiture artist (Zach Gough) and a live concert from Mary Stewart. In year three, last year, we pulled off a ridiculously fun photographic session complete with props with help from our friend Shelagh Duffett.

Karen, of Belltristic Buttons, helps a young Nocturne visitor cut out his image and make his 1″ button in 2008.

This year, we are doing something a little bit different.

With a love of smart street art, a crush on chalkboards and chalking, a love of the handwritten love letter, an insistence that Love, Me Boutique have a pARTicipation effort in Nocturne, our store will physically be closed BUT we will have chalk out for Nocturne participants to take on their journey Saturday evening.

This year Love, Me is encouraging pARTicipants to chalk love letters to Halifax / citizens of Halifax throughout their travels Saturday evening. That simple. You. Others. Some chalk. And hopefully, some beautiful messages throughout the city.

hello beautiful by me.

I hope you all have a great night this Saturday. Bundle up, grab a warm bevie and stop by the shop for some chalk. (First come. First serve.) And then get out there and make some art.
