going pickin’

September 25, 2008


It was time to go get some mushrooms and naturally a girl must have a dress with enough pockets to carry a motherload of mushrooms…
The style is the same as the city slickers get up, but in lovely linen and with ample pockets to hold the wonderful delicacy.

We walked in the forest upon entering we found a ready bunch of mushrooms…
The little girl sat down and picked…
And picked, and picked, until her pockets could handle no more (even her basket was pretty full)…
‘Twas a lovely day of picking, although we were afraid of picking the sickly kind like a friend of ours a few months back. Though, I am sure this batch is good and will be devoured as quickly as they were found!
While leaving the woody forest, we saw a most frightful mushroom. We didn’t pick this one…
Anyone want some mushrooms?
Just to think this sudden mushroom craving came from the fact that I wanted a new pin cushion. Next, I ended up making a bunchful because True wanted some to play with, then along came a little frock because well, if you do go mushroom pickin’ you must have pickin’ dress!
I love these other mushroom-esque things… Mushroom Meadows, Toadstool Nightlight (Grammie/Grumpy/Grandmama: True would surely love this in her room!), Tamar Mogendorff. All so inspiring…
Now we are off to pick some books in the forest called our local public library…
Happy picking!
