mushaboom

Amanita muscaria


Agaricus augustus

Amanita pantherina

Coprinellus micaceus


Yep, the mushroom rattle project has finally come to an end. All that's left is to pack them up and ship them off to Gretchen in Arkansas. I hope she enjoys her little bouquet of mushroom rattles--I certainly enjoyed making them. If you're interested in learning a bit more about each type of mushroom (or my feelings on spores), just click the captions below the mushroom pictures. And if you'd like to learn a lot more, seek out a copy of Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest. This book was my go-to guide for mushroom inspiration...other than the woods, of course.



So long, little fungi. May your future days be filled with soft and squishy baby hands!

    2. Oh, I can promise you that I am also super nerdy...but in the cat lady knitting kind of way, so possibly even worse!
