Giveaway Monday – Wooden Raccoon by Mamaroots

Raccoons can be mischievous creatures. They look like little bandits with their masks and they love to wreak havoc on trashcans! Leave out a bowl of cat food or dog food and it’s sure to be gone in the morning if you have a raccoon living nearby!

Luckily, this little fella is harmless and doesn’t eat much. He’ll happily sit on your nature table, playing with any pebbles you leave sitting nearby!

As a totem, raccoons are recognized for their masks as masks are one of the tools of transformation. Masks can help us to change what we are into what we want to be. Also, raccoons teach you how to put asleep the part of you that is not needed and awaken the part of yourself that is. Quite a good totem to have!

Mamaroots did a sweet job of recreating this little guy!

    We have racoons that come and eat leftover cat food that we leave out for a neighborhood cat. They’re so sweet and fearless. We’ve watched them grow from small babies into goofy adolescents.

    Oh wow! And in her shop!!! So many great products, but here are our favourites:

    1. Geraldine and her Flute — the girls love ANYTHING musical! What a fantastic way to bring a story to life!
    2. “Website” journal — for the spider lover in me!
    3. Earl The Brown (Squirrel) — my eldest daughter’s all-time FAVOURITE animal is the squirrel! She’s convinced (rightly so, I’m certain) that they’re her totem animal — she connects with them so beautifully. Her best “friend” doll is her grey squirrel Acorn :)

    Thanks so much for turning us on to a great place full of exciting things!

    Another opportunity, who could resist. Mamaroots has some lovely things, her animals are beautiful but today I am drawn to the Glogg Tasche the Christmas Goblin, it must be because I feel the Christmas season is in the air.
    Thank you for the opportunity xxx
