Pink Mushroom Girl Valentine Wood Pendant/Pin
Meet the Pink Mushroom Cap Girl. She has been featured before in my paintings, but here she is on a wooden pendant that I hand painted and varnished. Each wooden block (if I can say block even though it's a circle) is an original work of art. No two are exactly the same. The exciting part is that you get to choose whether you want it as a brooch or as a necklace pendant.
My love for mushrooms came from my childhood. In Montana after a rain shower my mom would take us out and we'd look for morel mushrooms near the streams and river. I loved the damp smell of earth in the spring and still do. Whenever I walk into a greenhouse I inhale memories and good feelings of gardening dreams.
I'm adding some new categories to my etsy store. Wooden Pendants is one being added and more varieties of art are coming in the next few days. I am excited!
