A Souvenir From Poland

I don't normally like souvenirs.  But then, most of the time, they are cheaply made and not able to be used in daily life without making you or your home look like a commercial.  But, I have picked up some very usable and unusual souvenirs in my travels through Poland.

Can you guess what this is?




Yes, it's a mushroom.  By now, I think you have gotten the fact that we Poles love mushrooms.  But, can you tell better now?




Hmmm, I'll give you a hint if you haven't figured it out yet...




I know, I fell in love with it also when I saw it.




But how to get one for yourself?




I guess you will have to visit Poland now, won't you?

Not all in Poland love mushrooms :P But yes, I guess I am a weird exception to the rule. This is cute, though :)

Not just eat but also in artwork and knick knacks...

I have a very strange associations with mushrooms, so - still true ;P
(Once, during a fantasy convention, there was a panel on mushrooms in Vikings culture. Mushrooms never looked the same for me after that... ;D)
