Friday fun: we have a ghost! And a devil!
Roses done right: Laura Mercier

Curator's Corner, 10/29/2011 Happy almost  Halloween!  Are you excited for candy?  I am enjoying a nice quiet weekend in, my favorite kind of weekend.  Here are some links from the week.

- The Beheld has a truly great post on MAC and what they're selling (besides makeup).

- Just in time for Halloween, a Tumblr that discusses the age-old question - Halloween or Williamsburg?

- Phyrra welcomes a guest post on some very frightening historic beauty techniques. 

- Instead of working on the Museum's fall 2011 exhibition today, which was my original plan, I decided to have a pumpkin dessert extravaganza (warming up for Thanksgiving).  I made pumpkin cupcakes with caramel filling and salted caramel buttercream, pumpkin cookies with brown butter icing, and pumpkin ice cream.   All turned out excellently if I do say so myself, although I did manage to burn my arm pretty badly on a cookie sheet.   In lieu of a picture of my charred skin (or the delectable treats, as the light was crappy and I was too tired to take pics)  I give you this instead:


Pretty apt for me.

What are your Halloween weekend plans, if any?
