Mushrooms

Sunday hikes leave me recharged and amazed at all the beautiful stuff nature makes every day. The inspiration nature provides lead me on a mushroom hunt through the world of Etsy, where beautiful stuff gets made everyday, too. Here are a few artists who draw mushrooms as creatively as nature makes ‘em. Emma Klingbeil is prolific and darkly whimsical, and leaves me daydreaming about a childhood I don’t have to let go of. Jessica Doyle shows a simple graphic style, while Block Party Prints pairs that graphic quality with a sense of brevity. Ashley G and Drew has captured the quiet intensity I often feel when lying on the forest floor to get the perfect angle on a tiny mushroom I am photographing. All of these artists have many more wonderful works that aren’t about mushrooms, so be sure to check it all out.

    I just bought my husband a shitake mushroom grow kit for his birthday and while I'm usually the one spreading out my crafty projects from room to room…last night when getting ready to setup shop to do a little sewing my husband turned to me and said “can you turn off that light your killing my mushrooms!?” I've created a monster or he's just figured out how to tame one! ;)
