If you are very fortunate, you will see Maybelle carefully making her way down your front walk at three o’clock in the afternoon. She balances her pretty pink and green teacup in its saucer so as not to spill her steaming hot tea.
If you don’t have cookies, Maybelle will most likely go to the next house. She’d like to be polite, but, after all, what is the good of having tea if there are no cookies?
Maybelle’s cute little whiskers are made from stiffened cotton thread. Her jacket is painted a sunny shade of yellow, and is banded around the collar and hem with mauve. Her yellow skirt is covered in tiny blue and mauve flowers. Her little tail emerges from white petticoats that swirl below her dress.
Maybelle is signed and dated and sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation. She rests firmly on a turned wooden base that is stained and sealed in golden oak. Maybelle stands 5 inches tall. Maybelle comes with a hang tag, a certificate of authenticity, and a copy of her story.
Maybelle’s friend is Marla Mouse.
