Fall Flames and Plum Pudding....the fall mushroom collections

All the mushrooms are in my Etsy Shop this morning. My favorite collections~ Ghost, Earth, Acid Green and Plum Pudding. Might just take myself out to lunch to celebrate!

I have been working on several fall color collections and custom orders.  So happy with how they have all turned out!
Here are a few~


These are the fall flames.   And this collection of earth mushrooms, love the deep bronze.  The tallest mushroom has such cool variations in the velvet colors.


I call this collection Plum Pudding.  Those two mushrooms on the right look downright tasty...no?


This group is the blushing neutrals with a little bit of rose gold, shitake mushroom and nude blush.


Love these aqua and red silk velvet mushrooms.  That light aqua one in the middle is huge!  love the wonderful bell shaped cap.  Until next time, enjoy these woodland beauties, Julie

mushroom land....


hello from mushroom land...
all these lovelies along with a fairy ring of pink mushrooms will be in the shop Monday.




 I have had so many custom orders for pink mushrooms that I ended up taking a break from mushroom making just to dye a new batch of pink silk velvet. 
somehow I got a hole in my glove and my hand turned PINK!  luckily it was mostly my pinky,
but what a pink pinky it was!
small price to pay as the velvets turned out gorgeous and now I have a great collection of gorgeous pinks to choose from although already I am feeling drawn to the colors of an autumn woodland~
copper, moss, saffron, grey, and teal.  can't wait to make some more darkest black ones again...
they are positively spooky!
here is some of the pink velvet I dyed~
see you in the shop on Monday,
Julie

oh my sweet heart...


I have loved making these needle felted wool hearts this year.  It seems I am always drawn to the soft pinks and cream wools with the vintage blossoms.  This little box is one of my favorites.


A few of these hearts were custom requests, the rest went in the shop today.  This little blue heart with the vintage glass garland beads turned out so sweet. 





this collection of pinks was so fun to make and send out.  One of the pink ones went to a customers mother that loved making things by hand and is now living in a care center.


Sometimes there is a little heart that is so sweet I decide to keep I for a while.  These cream hearts just looked so beautiful in my little milk glass bowl.





It was such a lovely Valentines day at our house.  Sweet little notes for the girls, some dark chocolates and a lovely pink bouquet with wild thistle stems.


 Always there is a bit of red, so heavenly!


 and then this new palette, cream and taupe.  The large vintage cherry blossom from Japan is so very unusual!


February you have been so very lovely.

tiny fairy mushroom ornaments...


such a lovely holiday weekend for making mushroom ornaments! this is a new design I have been working on with needle felted wool wired stems and silk velvet mushroom caps. The hand dyed velvet has such a beautiful color variation that shows off so well on the mushroom caps.


I love these new shapes and how the stems can bend.  The gills are made with one of my hand dyed crepe paper ruffles.  here is a close up to see the paper folding and stitching~


there are even a couple with glitter spots.  happy holiday week !
