Tiny Pretty Things

Lots of tiny pretty things catch my eye.

A little flash of red caught my eye yesterday when I was working on repairs to the horses’ gate.

At the moment I was unable to move the grass aside to see what it was, but as soon as the wires were twisted, I dropped the pliers and took a closer look.

The bright color belonged to a cluster of tiny crimson mushrooms. Of course I didn’t have my camera with me. It was a fence-mending job, not a nature walk.

So back to the house I went for the camera.

This little mushrooms is so tiny,  it’s not much larger than the ants that were crawling around on the ground beside it.

Creating Tiny Pretty Things

Lately I’ve been making polymer clay sculptures and mixed media “Fairy Gardens”.

The cap on this one is colored with powdered cinnamon.

About Wild Ozark
Wild Ozark is a nature farm. Mostly we grow rocks. I use those rocks and some of the herbs to make earth pigments and watercolor paints. We also grow native clay that I use for paint and various other things. And then there are the trees. We grow lots of trees. My husband uses some for his woodworking and some for our Burnt Kettle Shagbark Hickory Syrup, but for the most part they stand around creating good air, shade, & habitat for the ginseng nursery.


Follow me on Instagram to keep up with paints, art, and random nature pictures I make in real time.

My art and paints are available on Etsy! But if you're interested in owning a Madison Woods original, follow me on Instagram or FB because sometimes they go out the door as soon as I make the final post to say they're done.

About the voice behind this blog, Madison Woods
I'm a creative old soul living way off the beaten path with my husband in the wild Ozark Mountains. You can find my art on display and for sale at the Kingston Square Arts shop in Kingston, Arkansas. It's a tiny little town and a bit off the path to anywhere at all, but a wonderful ride out to a most beautiful part of our state. Besides homesteading, growing plants & making arts & crafty things, I write books and stories. My rural fantasy fiction, written under the pen name, Ima Erthwitch, usually takes place in a much altered Ozarks.

  1. When I was in France walking the dogs in the forest, we were always on the lookout for edible mushrooms, but there were also lots of inedible, even poisonous beauties.
