Here is a little hint to what's coming to the shoppe tomorrow. I did a little search of the red and white mushroom and found this:
"Amanita Muscaria, the “red with white dots” mushroom is not only the central setting of many children’s stories; for the American author James Arthur it is the “mushroom that created Mankind”. It comes close to identifying the mushroom with god, but such a literal identification is out of place. What Arthur is suggesting, is that what typifies Mankind, can be found in the hallucinogenic properties of the mushroom.
The Amanita Muscaria is not only famous for its appearances in fairy tales; its colours are also linked with Santa Claus, racing through the skies with his reindeer. Is it a coincidence that reindeer eat this mushroom, and that it grows under the trees we seem to largely grow for Christmas tree purposes?" Read more here.
Oh the things you can find on the internet these days...or I should say, Oh the things you can steal from the internet these days. Makes blogging a whole lot easier sometimes, that's for sure!
Stay tuned - new series coming to the shop, and a set of jewelry using some awesome Elaine Ray goodies!
