Grisette--Amanita vaginata--and Clavulinopsis laeticolor

"Grisette," Amanita vaginata.
 Common name refers to a French working-class woman, usually a part-time "flirt;" from "gris" (grey), the color of the cheap unbleached clothing they wore.
Anyway, these mushrooms have characteristic striated cap edges, a ring and a nice volva.
Bonus: this photo appears in Michael Kuo's latest book, "Mushrooms of the Midwest"!

Tiny orange coral, probably Clavulinopsis laeticolor.
