Fwd: Pixlist Pogue Garden Curiousity

<< This plant appears in Collette Pogue's garden annualy.
 Does anyone know what it is? Is a lichen? Is it poisonous?
 It is rather attractive, don't you think? >>

It is some type of fungus and I bet it is growing on a stump.  It is common in
midsummer on rotting wood.  The "shelfs" of the fungus have a velvety
underside.  You can scratch pictures and words into this surface.  The fungus
will dry hard as wood and be a memento of your hike in the woods.  Some forms
can be one foot side.
