more magical mushrooms

purple velvet on a green carpet
salmon pink
blue velvet 
stones that look like a broken, old mushroom
more light blue velvet
stitched around the edges
perfect stitches around the edge
lipstick
frog and a slug
shell-like
teeny tiny world
once again, i'm not so great at identifying these, but i do love finding and photographing them on a walk in the woods. i'm amazed at the range of colors mushrooms and fungi come in.  next year, i'm going to be prepared to use them for dyeing, but with harvesting the garden bounty and honey and making cider and getting ready to build a new kitchen and such things, it feels like too much to try to tackle mushroom dyes as well.  so that will have to wait. and the pretty pictures will have to suffice in the meantime.

I just found some HUGE ones in my backyard! I love how you make things that perhaps people might overlook.. into art.
