Animal Love: Raccoon

Is there anything cuter than a raccoon, with those little dexterous paws and that bandit face mask? I suppose if those dexterous paws were getting into your garbage at night, they might not seem quite so cute. But since raccoons have yet to conquer my Brooklyn garbage, I’m an admirer. — Amy Azzarito

    My 3-month-old son has several adorable outfits featuring raccoon prints. The raccoon seems to be, along with the fox, the new owl.

    #8 would be so clever if only it depicted the correct pastry! The illustrations on the plate are French Macarons, whereas Macaroons are flaky cake-like drops of shaved coconut or some kind of nut.

    soo soo adorable! Love your style! Have a look at my blog when you get a chance!

    I have a photograph from the Bronx zoo of the first raccoon born there. It
    ‘s a little damaged being from the 40’s but the photo has a place on my living room wall.
    The baby raccoon looks remarkably similar to the one on the pillow in your blog.

    The raccoon tote bag is adorable, want one!

  10. Archie says:

    In Germany raccoons are called “wash bears” (Waschbaeren) because they wash their paws and douse their food in water. So now at our house we refer to the little visiting family that comes regularly as Mama Wash Bear and the baby wash bears.

    I love raccoons as well! Love this collection! My husband designed some super raccoon t-shirts. Here is the site, if anyone is interested. Cheers!
