On a family camping trip a few years ago, I really noticed mushrooms for the first time: they were everywhere! I photographed and gathered them so I could admire them some more the next day. My love for fungi has only continued to grow since that trip; I love finding, identifying and incorporating mushrooms into my daily life. Here are some of my favorites on Etsy.
