truth in advertising

Maybe I am a rarity, but I love raccoons (except the one who wandered across our yard one summer, looking like he was frothing at the mouth).

Aren't they funny and intelligent?  Yesterday was a very racoon-y day.  I got my favorite sun butter and ginger tea at the store, was working on drawing a new raccoon figure AND saw a dead raccoon down the road, flattened…dang.  ANYWAY, pandas are raccoon cousins, I have heard, but I don't live near pandas….

IN OTHER news, I like to get good boxes for pottery to hold my groceries at the coop.  (my shipping philosophy = SCROUNGE).  I don't eat the stuff from this bakery, but Spike and I are fond of their boxes, as you can see….. have a great Tuesday!

Oh my, sun butter sounds so good! How have I never run into it? Must find some. Love the picture on the box of was meant to be!

scrounging and pottery seem to go hand in hand! never throw out a good box - that's my motto.

I'm not too fond of raccoons, but I love that box! And it's Spike-tested so you know it's a good box.

We are big cat box people here. I have only 2 cats but currently 3 boxes in the family room and 2 in the living room/studio. :) I think raccoons are super cute! Love their little fingers.

I totally support you in your Raccoon Love, and admit that I also harbor quite a fondness for them. I admire their deviousness and insatiable curiosity!
