Some of my followers may remember this post I did a couple years ago. Well, I still haven't lost my love of small odd things (don't say it, I know what you're thinking) This year, the inedible mushroom crop has gone gangbusters. When I went to check our mailbox yesterday, I noticed how many different kinds there were, so I rushed back to the house, grabbed the camera, and took a self-guided fieldtrip through the woods. Here is some of what I found. This splendidly ugly specimen was right near our water spigot.

These little buttony bumps were in the front yard.

Oooohh yuck!

This one is almost inverted.

I thought this looked like a birdbath.

The spiked horror. Strange, but true.

Disclaimer: I do not eat mushrooms, nor would I advise anyone else to. They are disgusting, and furthermore, wild mushrooms must be properly identified prior to consumption by those who insist on eating gross stuff.

New Blog

If you want to take a look at our wedding website, now you can! I'm not done with it yet, but I figured I'd get the word out.

Jolly Good

Okay, official new favorite stuff alert. Today I found the most fantastic brand of nail polish: butter LONDON. The colors are cute, the name is mahvelous, and I am angsting to get myself some.

London isn't known for being sunny, but no matter the weather, yellow like this can brighten your day.

Is it turquoise? Wedgwood? Lagoon? Whatever it is, it's simply splendid.

Every girl needs at least one bottle of a good, reliable red with some serious oomph.

This one I put on specifically for my future niece's benefit. A pink for the ages. Bright enough for tots, sophisticated enough for those who wish to be sophisticated. (laughing at self)

And last but not least, an old standby for those of us who like our nails naked, thank you very much.
Go to the site & see all the other colors!! They also carry a black tea lotion with a bright and sassy union jack on the bottle.
