What do you collect?

I'd love to hear what sort of disney collections disers have and see some photos I'll post some photos as soon as I can

I love collecting snowglobes and anything to do with Stitch. I also love fridge magnets and pens and am addicted to anything christmassy

Please share your photos, obsessions and 'must buys'

I collect Disney snow globes. I'm starting to run out of space for them. It looks like I will have to buy a new shelf or cabinet if I get any more.

Those are wonderful!! I couldnt pick my fave as they are all so pretty and unique!! Do you have a favourite?


I recently got a display cabinet for my snowglobes too and have 'accidently' left one shelf spare - What a shame, i'll have to take a trip to disney to fill it That's my excuse and i'm sticking to it So i'm hopeing to get some cute one's this december, I'd love a few christmassy themed ones as I only have a couple. I'm so mad at myself - I fell in love with a big christmas one last september but I didnt think that it would fit in my case, I really regret not buying it

I would be sitting on the patio of the Fontana bar at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas watching the dancing fountains on a warm balmy night whilst sipping vintage Champagne

I collect ride and park pins from WDW, Disneyland and DIsneyland Paris plus pins of Minnie and Tinker Bell. I have way too many to take pictures of! I also collect Disney Christmas decorations.





I have been to WDW since last Christmas so I have more now!! I have Tinker Bell on the top and a Tink skirt around the bottom. All the decorations on it are Disney.

My favourite 3 are these, the 3 Disney castles.

Hi there! Your tree is gorgeous!! I love all the ornaments on it I have a couple on our tree, but I would love to get a second tree maybe in the hall & use that one just for disney The tree skirt looks really nice, I love the shape of it

What do you do with your pins - do you display them?

Those tinkerbell bells are really cute! Its similar to one of my faves but mine has got stitch sat on top of it

Hello

Its early days for me and my collecting but after our last trip I have struck upon a few themes that I will build upon every time we return. Namely these are Pins, of course. Its hard to resist joining in but by limiting myself to Viallian pins I have managed to retain some degree of self-control . I also bought a Stein and will continue to add to this during subsequent trips. My wife went quite overboard on Christmas decorations and we now have a tree that is exclusivley Disney with just a hint of Seuss thrown in.

I have developed a strong interest in Olzsewski sculptures in recent months, in particular the lighted pieces and I will be making a beeline for Art of Disney in October 2010. Have added a couple of pics below to show what has been accumulated so far

Hi there!

I started collecting late so dont worry I love those pins, I've never really paid must interest in looking for villian items but some of those are cool - think I need to pay more attention this trip!! The lighted pieces are lovely arent they, those little boxes with the scenes in that light up - is that the ones? They are beautiful!

There are some stunning Jeweled villian pins available, in particular the Hook one. So I will be trying to track more down.....they are a wee bit harder to find but that makes the effort more rewarding

It is indeed the lighted Olzsewski sculptures, the Main Street pieces are stunning but realistically I could not carry them back home with any confidence. The lighted pieces are quite magnificent. Have my eye on the Nightmare Before Christmas piece but I think I may end up with 2 or 3 in total once I see them.

Pins

Anything with Merryweather

Lots of Christmas ornaments

We also have a big figure. It is Donald Duck decked out at Disneyland.

A couple snow globes, a couple cookie jars.

Antenna toppers!!

Kitchen items

I collect too many things......like anything that strikes my fancy. I really need to narrow it down.

We are moving....someday so a lot of our things are in boxes at the new house.

The Mary Poppins is my favorite. I just got the 101 Dalmations so I'm also partial to it right now. I'm hoping to add 1 or 2 more when I head to WDW in a few weeks.

When we were in Disneyland in January this year we bought a couple of the Olszewski lightboxes and have fallen in love with them.

I was suprised with another one for fathers day yesterday.

Would like to buy more of them, but the cost of getting them here is almost half the price as the item itself!

The jeweled ones sound lovely, I like anything with a bit of sparkle I love going on a shopping hunt for certain things when in wdw - its like a mini treasure hunt, just without the sand digging I hope you manage to get everything you are looking for on your next trio Those light sculptures are beautiful, I would love to have on of those on top of our fire surround, especially at christmas time

Awww a merryweather collection would be sooo cute!! I know what you mean about trying to narrow it down to certain things, I just buy anything that takes my fancy too - much to hubbys dismay

I love those two! They are very pretty! The Mary Poppins one must have been very expensive due to its size, i've never seen that one before!! Dont forget to post some photos of your new additions when you get back
