When I was little, my mother collected little mushroom accessories for every room in our house, and I would spend hours playing with them, making mini forests for my pretend deer and squirrels and bears. Every time I see a cute tote bag, apron, or peppermill with a mushroom motif, I think fondly back to my mother’s collection and take a quick trip back through time. And I’ve been seeing these little portabellas and porcinis everywhere lately, and have considered starting my own collection. To get me started, here are 8 adorable mushroom accessories…

Wear each pair together, or mix and match for a little more fun!
