Mum bought some slides back from New Zealand. Over the last week I have converted them to digital format. So for the first time, after 35 years we can actually now see these photos. This is the second set which feature the 25th Anniversary parade. Please forgive the somewhat blurry photos – we are spoilt nowadays … Continue reading

Usually I’m one to fastidiously plan a trip months ahead of travel but with needing to use up the last of my leave before starting a new job on Monday (yikes!), an immediate plan was put in place. Researched on Thursday, booked on Friday and travelled the following Wednesday. I initially looked at tours but … Continue reading
These little 32% lead crystal & 24k gold plated figurines I bought some years ago online. Originally they were $125 each (according to the price stickers) and I paid $25 for the lot. Each measures about 4cm tall. The boxes say made in Austria, I believe from a company called Lencia. They were probably made in the … Continue reading
Sitting on the window sill in my kitchen is this ceramic Pooh trinket container. I adore him, he just looks so happy sitting there storing my odds and ends.
Most of the items in my Disney collection are Disney authorised and approved, however a friend of mine who got a new woodworking tool of some type made this Mickey Mouse for me. Isn’t it cool? You can’t see in the photo but he has a tail too.
Although I’m not a massive Alice in Wonderland movie fan, I do love the bright, colourful artwork from the movie and of course one of my doglet’s is called Alice. Therefore I couldn’t resist these Alice in Wonderland plates which I got a few years ago at Disneyland. We have put them in the wall in our … Continue reading
As a professional, I feel its very important when visiting clients to maintain a professional appearance. Its also important that they remember you, and the easiest way to ensure that, is to stand out from the crowd. Thats why I have a Mickey Mouse handbag. I can guarantee none of my workmates (who I … Continue reading
I confess, not only do a I own 14 weeks worth of socks, I also have far too many mugs. 🙂 These four Frozen mugs I got on our last trip to Florida. I got them at T.J. Maxx or Ross Dress for Less so they were only a couple of dollars each, rather than … Continue reading
I have a real love of the various tins available in the stores at Tokyo Disneyland and I have shown some previously on this previous post. This particular Winnie the Pooh theme Cookie tin, I picked up at a Salvation Army store in Queenstown at the weekend. It was only $NZ2, and while I’m trying to declutter … Continue reading
Last week I showed a couple of glass plates souvenir plates from Disneyland. This week’s “My Disney Collection” item is a Walt Disney World Glass Plate. Unfortunately don’t know the history or vintage of this as I bought it online. This one is a particularly heavy piece of glass though.
This week’s “My Disney Collection” item(s) are a couple of glass plates souvenir plates from Disneyland. I got these both second hand so I’m not sure what era they come from, however this first one I was amazed to see at the Disney Archives on display when we were there in July. I bought it … Continue reading
At work we have a bi-monthly newsletter, for my submission about our holiday to Walt Disney World, I summarised it. I thought it was worth sharing here. Some of these I have already blogged about and some are still to come. It is possible to rent a 4 bedroom house, in a gated community, with a resort style … Continue reading
This week’s “My Disney Collection” item is a prize item within my collection. Its original, one of a kind and more importantly made especially for me by a very talented friend many years ago. She took an original 1980s Cabbage Patch Kid and recreated her into Minnie Mouse. This involved removing the original yarn hair and … Continue reading
