I have to apologize first. Somehow the draft of this post got published five days ago,only partially finished and with no pictures. Sorry! I have no idea how that happened.
Now for today's post, all finished this time.
I found this Cottage Collectibles monkey on our trip to Canada recently, although he was from the antique mall we stopped at before reaching Canada. I think he's from Michigan.
Cottage Collectibles were made by Ganz.
I have two Cottage Collectibles cats, and a mouse, which are slightly smaller than this guy's 4".
Tutu is the white cat.
She is 3" tall.
The black cat is 3 1/2" tall.
And the mouse is 2 3/4" tall.
The Cottage Collectibles dolls all have the little brass tag on their chests.
They originally came in a muslin bag.
My favourite, is Maxie,the mouse.
I first spotted Maxie in a cake and candy making supplies and gift store.
I kept saying how I wanted him, but I never got him, then one day I found a Maxie at a yard sale.
|He was even still in his muslin bag.|
It was a good thing, because Maxie was one of those 'one that got away' stories that haunt you. I don't know why.
|He's just so cute!|
Sometimes a particular thing will just strike me and I have to have it or I can never forget about it. This monkey may have ended up being like that! I just love him! Oddly enough,his name is Max!
