Doll-A-Day 2017 #273: Shrunken Saturday:Cottage Collectibles Max, Maxie,and a Couple of Cats

   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!

See you tomorrow for another doll.
