Mad on Toadstools...

Since deciding on a theme for Miss S's fifth birthday party (In the Enchanted Forest), I have, I must admit, become a little bit obsessed with toadstools.

It started innocently with a watercolour/ ink painting I did for her invitation...

Then I realised how much fun those toadstools were to draw and how much I love anything with spots.  Then we went to the Black Forest in Germany for our Easter holiday and I purchased a pair of handmade wooden toadstools for Miss S as a souvenir of our holiday (pictured above).

And speaking of things with spots, Miss S who is currently suffering from a rather bad case of chickenpox came up to me on saturday and sadly said "noone has sent me a get well soon card".  My heart just about broke since she herself always makes get well soon card for all her friends whenever they are poorly.  So I made this one for her, with toadstools, of course, and left it black and white so she could colour it in herself.

Then as my obsession developed, I decided to go to Etsy and type in "Toadstools" into their search field and see what came up.  I ended up buying the following three items and just thought I would share them with you since they are so adorable.
