I recently blogged about what Disney means to me and that was a post I really enjoyed writing. Disney is a huge part of my life, my self and my childhood so I would like to blog about it more. I’m not a collector of Disney merch. In fact, I’m not a collector of anything because I hate hoarding stuff and literally throw everything away at the first chance I get. However, I do have some treasured Disney items at home that I absolutely love and that mean a lot to me. I might not have four thousand Tsum Tsum’s or all the movies on DVD but in no particular order, here are 5 of my favourite Disney items I own!
Peter Pan Book
My boyfriend bought me this book for my birthday in 2017 (my boyfriend bought me the majority of the items on this list actually, for various birthday’s or Christmases – I’m not trying to show off, just stating where they came from and I’m just very lucky that he knows me so well!) and it’s one of the most gorgeous books I own. I adore the cover and although I haven’t read it yet, I love seeing it on my book case.
Beauty and the Beast Print
I know I said no particular order but this print has to be my favourite Disney item and probably one of my favourite things I own, full stop! Again, Carl bought this for me for Christmas last year and although I knew I had a print (because of how big it is), I had no idea what of and I was so surprised by this. I’ve never seen a print like this before – it’s utterly gorgeous and it looks beautiful on my wall. The new BATB film is one of my favourite films so I love having this on my wall.
Mickey Mouse Christmas Ornament
I bought this in Disneyland Paris when I went in 2011 – with no intention of putting it on a Christmas tree and I also have no idea how I got it back in one piece but this is such a small and seemingly insignificant item but I love it so, very much. It’s so plain and simple but so pretty. I’d love to have an entire tree decorated like this at some point in my life!
Beauty and the Beast Lantern
This is up there as one of my favourite favoruites as well – my other Christmas present from last year from Carl. I absolutely love this lantern – it’s so unique and I’m not sure if they’re mass produced or it came from a small business type shop (he won’t tell me) but I’ve never seen another one like it or anyone else with one. So that makes me love it even more. It flickers when you turn it on, so it looks like a candle is inside. I bloody adore it.
Another Disneyland Paris purchase but this one is from my 2009/2010 visit (I think!) I don’t really know what made me buy Dumbo, as opposed to all the other character teddies they have in the shops at Disneyland Paris because Dumbo has never really been one of my favourite films (it’s too sad!) but I just loved this and it’s so cuddly.
