Hey Walter, is it a Moustache or a Mustache?



  Well, according to Wikipedia the American version is Mustache. But if I was a Man,though I'm not and rather content and complete with that reality. But if was a Man, I would prefer to have a Moustache rather than a Mustache.Mustache, in my opinion  sounds kinda dull and takes out the mysteriousness and complexity of the Moustache. So for the sake of not wanting my blog to sound  Dull , in this post we will refer to the Mustache as Moustache.

   But before I start rambling, please forgive me for not remembering my manners. Greetings and a GOOD DAY! Its Sunday December 17,2011 and I hope your enjoying your weekend so far!


   Yesterday, my husband I spent sometime visiting his humorous  Grandparents. While we were enjoying our visit, we starting discussing the fact that there are so many types of Moustaches! His grandfather Walter, happens to have this very AWESOME and DISTINCT Moustache. Which impeccably fits his personality.My husband and I decided upon  Walter's mustache being called the the HOOK just like the pillow pictured below , but antiqued in a Silver tone.

 Apparently ,there exist many different kinds of Moustaches to fit every Mr.'s personality.There's the Chevron, similar to the one adorned by the famous Mr. Tom Selleck.

 These are just a few of them ! And I'll let you discover the rest! :)But here some other interesting facts about the Moustache and also a spectacular Moustache Treasury List found on ETSY. Com that I created just for this !


Info below was from obtained  Wikipedia 

History

Shaving with stone razors was technologically possible from Neolithic times, but the oldest portrait showing a shaved man with a moustache is an ancient Iranian (Scythian) horseman from 300 BC.
In Western cultures women generally avoid the growth of facial hair; though some are capable, the majority of these women use some form of depilation to remove it. In rare circumstances, women may choose to embrace this growth, often in the form of thin moustaches. Mexican artist Frida Kahlo famously depicted herself in her artwork with both a moustache and a unibrow. This tradition is followed by some contemporary women in the arts.
