My Alice in Wonderland collection - in the study- part2

Yes, I still have lots of Alice things in the office...
Here's a lovely acrylic bank from Japan. Made by  Young Epoch.

 A pretty vanity case also from Japan. Label just says Disney.

Note my Alice sweatshirt

A very cute music/jewelry box by Park Lane Assoc, dba Colibri Corp,Inc.
Oddly it doesn't play a Disney song but the Moonlight Sonata.

A chocolate box from Tokyo Disneyland. I never had the chocolates but they were also themed.

An embroidered pencil pouch from Japan.

 A cute desk calendar/ note box from Japan made by Greeting Life, Inc.

All months have a different artwork.

Friday favorites...sort of

Let's face it, I no longer surf the Internet as much as I used to, I am not as interested in new "things" as I used to be and I hardly ever buy new things...so this section seemed increasingly meaningless to me...this is it then! (for the time being, I could change my mind again though...)

But here's a last thing I really liked this week, it's already all over but if you haven't seen it yet ...here, bathe in the unbearable cuteness and nostalgia...

The Falcor plush luck dragon. It is handmade by GameGuardians on Etsy and is currently out of stock but you can get the pattern with complete instructions too.

My Alice in Wonderland collection - in the study Part 1

 I have been really sick this past week, thus didn't prepare any of my usual posts...It may not look like it but, yes, I usually plan my weekly posts.
Thursday being my spot for alice in Wonderland, I grabbed a few items around me in the office and took photos (it was sunny today).
Saying that I realize that many don't quite imagine the amount of Alice "stuff" I have. Oddly until very recently I never was under the impression that I had such an extensive collection, simply because I personally met 2 people who have so much more (hi Matt, hi Wendy).
All the "collection" posts I have written so far barely scratch the surface...
 This is a wonderful jewelry/music box from Japan. It plays the Unbirthday song and it came with a beautiful Alice heart pendent (that I'll show some other day). Made by the Colibri Group,Inc.

I love all the flower details from the movie.

A traditional Japanese item, a cardboard box covered in silk paper. It is exquisite! Neutral Corporation, Ltd.

 A photo box/frame. A cute little cardboard box to store your photos. Yes, another Japanese item.

 Japanase love their agenda. Each year they release an Alice one.

 There are many useful pages at the end with size charts, a reminder for your health chek-ups, holidays...
 ...and lots of maps of the subway and railway system for various Japanese towns.
 Interestingly those agenda are printed the "Western" way, (usually what we consider to be the back is the front cover for Japanese users).
This cute little guy. Little Cheshire Cat plush toy by Afternoon Tea, Japan.

Another very Japanese item, memo cards on a ring. And an Alice version too...I would have loved to have something like that when I was still at school. From the Disney Store.

 Tons of little stickers in a matchbox. S and C Corporation,Ltd.
A sample...

 A bright and colorful shopping bag by Nénet,Japan. I use it as my PO bag, all my outgoing packages are stored in there :)
