'Morning Dew' Mushrooms ..

Hello my dear friends,

do you believe me when I tell you that I just couldn't stop myself from making more of my 'Dew Drop' mushrooms?! I made five more so far to be exact. They are all completed now and one is looking just as lovely as the other. They were so much fun to create and it was such a joy to see them come together bit by bit.

Again drop cloth and old doilies, a few of my favorite bits to work with were used. The mushroom gills were made from natural silk which is something I also love to work with. This time I chose to use different vintage crystals for the dew drops and my mushrooms have turned out just so beautiful but I will let you see for yourself now.

More 'Dew Drops' At the Forest's Edge ...


I hope you like my newest creations and much as I do. 
They have brought me so much joy already. The forest's edge wasn't available to me when I wanted to take photos of my lace and tarnished fungi but our beautiful willow tree was right in our backyard, perfect for the task and the Spring sun was also right on cue too. Everything was perfect in my eyes.

I will be listing my 'mushrooms' in my Etsy shop some time soon, if any of you might be interested in them. I will let you know here on Todolwen when I have done so.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me here at Todolwen. It is always so nice when you do.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.

  8. Karen, you are so inventive. Only you could imagine a silver S&P into a mushroom, and they couldn't have been executed more perfectly. Brilliant!
