i’m jealous of leigh martin


Yarn-bombing… mushroom style! American artist Leigh Martin makes these little wooly fungi, and places them in nature. I wish she left them there for awhile, but I suppose that wouldn’t be very eco-friendly. It sure would be cool to unexpectedly see her work while out for a leisurely walk in the woods! And with that, I wish you a happy weekend filled with outdoor {and artsy} adventure!

    That is sooo adorable! That last picture especially. It’s like… Andy Goldsworthy meets yarn bombing, but not really. Love it!

    I scrolled through the pictures quickly at first, and didn’t even notice that the mushrooms were knit and not real. The proportions and colors are so perfect!

    wouldn’t you just love to stumble upon one of these in place? i love the idea of nature + artist working in tandem, so cute.
