The designs look great and Leeloo is a super cute name for a dog! I love Disney too! In fact Im trying to visit all the Disney parks around the world, currently Im still missing the park in Paris and the one in Shanghai in 2013, if it ever happens lol Thought I personally think that the merchandise in Disney Tokyo/Hongkong are more appealing, probably because they cater ad market to a different audience here in America.

I love your posts and in the list of 5 things you love you mentioned West German pottery. I was born in West Germany and was wondering if you found it here or you have friends/family in Germany who send it to you. My fiance and I are currently looking for a Hansel and Gretel cuckoo clock if you know of any!

Again, great posts and I look forward to more!
