@ celine, better not!! some species of "puff-balls" can cause bad/heavy "asthma". The dust are the "spores" of the mushrooms, it's never good when spores get inhaled some cause illness especially "molds" {which everyone knows from the basement}.
-- @ hollye, your could be a young "pholiota squarrosa" ( http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&cp... ).
