Brenda, that looks like an amanita muscaria var. formosa, or the yellow fly agaric. If it is totally white underneath and seems to have immerged from a egg like sack at its base than it is. IT IS POISONOUS!!! but not useless. In the old times farmers would soak them in milk and put the milk in a saucer. Flies would drink the milk and die, thus its common name.
