Mushroom Girls and Boys




I found an atlas of exotic mushrooms in an antique book shop on the weekend and am turning Lactarius turpis and the like into skirts and ruffs and hairdos.

I ABSOLUTELY love the girl's skirt ......How can you come up with these ideas? I obviously lack the creative gene myself, LOL!

I love it.

In fact, I am loving this blo. Gosh, I wish Mika was as prolific as you with his, haha!.

Ohh what a meancing glare! How antique? Is it the one by Henri Romagnesi? Or is it on the order of Robert Hooke, Micrographia antique?

I don't know which I envy more. Your drawings skills or your vivid imagination.

And Sara is right. So prolific. Unless you've been storing this stuff up for years to be unleashed all at once on a blog :)

You are right Hana: it is inspiring. Very inspiring. Maybe that is one of the reasons why I like it so much and can't stop checking for more.
And mostly I am never disappointed, as you post so much. Like Christine said, I don't know what I envy you more for, haha!
