I do not know how old you were when the film splash was released but me has haunted my dreams of gamine. I had to see it when it is passed to French television I had to have 5-6 years old.
We put the salt in the bath with my sister to the sea. And when a few years later came the Little Mermaid Disney film that made us maboules… Both sirens icons in the years 80, now that I think about it does not surprise me that they are both fashionable lately.
I don't know why it still much fascinated me me who am unable to put a toe in cold water :D
You know it, I'm a great collector in the soul (I already gave you a glimpse of my collections of love here). My book collection Alice is my favorite part. The book being dropped long since in the public domain there is often new editions of the book coming out and for me it's a bit the Pokemons hunting. This is my latest finds and my next purchases ^^
I saw this book the Disney Family Museum and I took it, rests, taken, rests, report to my luggage for the return which was not expandable and already well full. And I told myself that I would buy it later. And I counted correctly ! There are all the drawings of research of Mary Blair and I loooooove ! It is at the top of my list.
And then this beautiful book with a woven blanket pink that I j'adooooore. The editor did an amazing job in retooling the autograph manuscript of Lewis Carroll with the help of a talented calligrapher. It is not far from being my favorite book <3
I try to get rid up superfluous for some years, my little side collector comes to face my goodwill.
That's the problem when you're a little obsessive : It makes you want to control everything, but it can generate the inverse. I love tidy shelves but my collections take up space. I have the vacuum but I sometimes need to fill. I'm not mad you know.
But I looove collectible, It's a bit as if life was a video game and need to find all hidden items. I have the impression to find treasures at all times, It's a pretty heady feeling. ADO I collected pubs in the magazine, my heart leaped when I made a new find (I épluchais my mother magazines, in the cellar, in the black and the smell of musty for hours). I also collected soda cans, I remember having plunged into a dustbin for a bobbin Morgen x Orangina :D
Growing up, and to learn how to control me and not to turn my apartment into a museum WonderlandHarryPotteroDisney I had to fix myself full of limits and it works rather well. This is how I handled my different collections.
My small collection, but who would have completely go live when I visited studios there are 2 years old. When I saw in the store all what you could buy I thought you had to be super selective otherwise I was going to fart a lead. The wand ? Apart from gathering dust in a shelf it will me be useless, non. Everything was a little too cheap, non. Everything had an indecent price (Candy by ex), non. It is necessary to create its own criteria and stick to them. I buy only what I find really good quality. Limiting a collection ’ at the outset it quiet very well, It avoids Buying absolutely everything which relates to a theme without discernment.
Here I've put small objects, but I also a love T-shirt, a scarf and pin's slytherin and ravenclaw (Yes I I'm looked long but I got to admit that I was totally team ravenclaw finally).
A bit like Harry Potter, There are so many derivatives Disney was forced to be selective. I completely cracked when I went to Japan where merchandising is incredible quality (It is made for demanding adults, not for children). I buy enough little things in general, We really need that I have a big favorite.
Boxes purchased in Japan
Genus these books / boxes purchased in Japan, they were filled with pretty paper and matching envelopes. I use it to store lots of small things in my living room.
Set of the Disney Sea
My madness tea set purchased in Tokyo Disney Sea that everyone wants (It was limited edition, they do more Park I think). I to am so bitten me fingers not to have brought two. It en now on ebay (I searched for you).
For the little story, Dancing with the stars production has borrowed me a few months ago for a sequence, they had looked everywhere and I was the only one to agree to lend. I not even watch the show, but I found it funny :D
I had already revealed to you quite a lot of pretty things alice in this articles on my books, I have accumulated quite a lot of things these 10 in recent years on the subject. A mix of books, disney derivatives and other. I'm not a super fan of products based on original prints for example.
I have pens (I realize looking at the picture it lacks the chat… someone will have the severed head !!), des livres, a teapot, the stationery, a lipstick…
Good otherwise I do not have yet an idea is nice for hanging with me, they are therefore in a beautiful box lined.
I have several ideas of themes : by colors, by film, by genre (wicked, chats, under the ocean…) but I do not yet decided
When I started this collection, I in know nothing, I thought that it was the pin's on sale at the Park and it was the same in all countries. Mais non, It was a tiny tip of the iceberg. I was tremendously fit my collection : characters clipped, pretty colors. Otherwise I nagerais in pine's as Scrooge in the gold coins.
Right there I'm going to store a little while the rest. Most of it is not true collections because I stopped fast enough history to not fall into drug. CA is my phone totoro hull but I have many others, or I got, but I have given changing phone.
The Pez is the typical thing in which I didn't want to fall, from time to time we offer me one and I find it cute. But I forbid me to look on ebay (did you know, the creator of ebay has created its website to help his wife to complete his collection of Pez).
