Let's hear it...awwww...or ewwww...

Well, I love this lil' critter paddling his canoe and like it or not, raccoon are a problem and will always be trapped or shot for raiding the hen house and garbage bins, at least with taxidermy, there is some semblance of usefulness to the loss of the poor creature's life, if only a trophy.
I know, I know, but it is what it is...

Don't even go there...this is one of the booths at The Junk Asylum, she has the best stuff!
I'll post on Friday some of the other dealers...however, I did find something for moi...

I've been Jonesin' for this wicker clothes hamper and today it was on sale big time...MINE...and this portrait, at $18.00, I just couldn't pass up either, together they really give my bathroom an uplift.

Aren't the handles just too cool on this piece and the muted colors...I love my job...but for now these sweet pieces are mine and my other hamper will just have to go to the shop...
it's the way of it you know!

Awesome finds!
I am always sad when I see those slow moving raccoons as roadkill.

I've see raccoons like that in souvenir shops in the Adirondacks. Initial response was awwww, but the thought of having one of these in the house is a definite ewwww. Besides.

Nice wicker, much like the one we had back when I was a kid. Wonder what that lady would say if she knew her portrait would one day end up in your bathroom? LOL
