Mushrooms and Stones

Since I've started carrying my camera with me more often, especially when I go for a walk, I've been noticing things I never really noticed before.  Sometimes I would see things but I wouldn't really look at them.  Now I stop and look.  One of those things is mushrooms.  There are so many different kinds of mushroom and I am finding them in unexpected places, places I didn't see them before.  They were there, I just didn't see them.  Now looking through the camera lens, I can't stop looking for them.

I also made some crochet covered stone pendants last weekend.  I love making these.  The stone itself makes each necklace unique, even when I use the same thread and stitch pattern.  I'll be listing these in my 
shop later today.


  1. It's funny how your eyes open when you start carrying around a camera. I'm fascinated by lichens; I have to take a snap of them before I move on. Happy photography and really lovely pictures!

  2. Awesome pics Tara!!!

    I'm so excited about your necklaces...I'll be getting one for sure. :-)

    My favorite necklace that i own is a smooth stone that had a hole already in it that I found on the beach one day and I strung a leather cord through it to make a necklace. I love it because it always reminds me of the walk Chad & I took that day.

  3. Your stones look beautiful. I'm loving my walks in the woods right now as well. Beauty under foot.

  4. I've seen crocheted stones but never made into jewelry. Very sweet.
