Toadstools as Furniture
Storybook toadstools (fly agaric mushrooms) are often depicted on Christmas cards. They are either orangey-yellow, or orangey-red, and are spattered with warts that resemble lumps of porridge. Being somewhat heavier than a toad, I would squash them bookmark-flat if I dared to sit on one. Instead, I use them as tables ... and that is your Martha-Stewart-Hint-of-the-Day.
