My first giveaway

Today is my birthday and since its better to give than to receive, I've decided to have my first giveaway.

On a recent trip to Las Vegas to photograph my first wedding (have you checked out our other obsession yet?) we came across the Disney Character Warehouse and found these Haunted Mansion Mickey Ears. Disneyland had these ears awhile back where my dear husband, Sam, so willingly modeled one for a picture.

Well, when I saw these sitting in the bin, I thought of you and thought it would be fun to give these away on the blog! So, here's what you have to do. Just leave a comment telling us your absolute favorite collectible. It could be one you have, or hoping to get your boney fingers on someday. Just spill your guts and on Friday, May 8th, I'll randomly pick 4 winners! Hey, only one entry per person, please!

Thanks for stopping by and now, its time for me to go eat some birthday cake!

My favorite Haunted Mansion collectible is our set of Hitchhiking Ghosts Big Figs from Disney shopping. They have a year-round spot in our home right in front of our never-used fireplace. And at Christmas time, they become part of the holiday decor, as you can see from this picture!

thanks gimmepig for that lovely rendition of happy birthday!

I think its Sam's mug that is scaring away all the people from commenting!

loosetoon and gimmepig, I don't have either of those collectibles! I did have the big figs, but they were both damaged in shipping and by the time I sent them back, they were sold out! Drat! Thanks for participating in my lil' game and giveaway!

My HM collectible is some of the original concept art that has been made available over the years. I have two of the Marc Davis drawings and an elevation sketch. They are reprints but I love them just the same.

My favorite HM collectable is between my ezra big fig and my HM plaque (an official one). I want to get my hands on a HBG big fig badly one day, I was so close to winning it the other day, but when it went passed $500, I said that it wasn't worth it (Even though i knew in my mind that it was).

My favorite Item is a water color painting of the bride outside the mansion, done by one of the water color artists in New Orleans square, Disneyland.

I was 13 at the time, and was walking around New Orleans square when I happened to notice one of the artists had a number of mansion inspired paintings. I told him I was massive haunted mansion fan, and he said he was too! He pulled out one he was going to finish that night, with the bride standing at the mansion gates, but I couldn't afford it. I was pretty bummed. 2 months later, It's my birthday, and I get that very painting from my parents! Turned out they had seen him working on it that night too, and picked it up for me when I wasn't looking!

My favorite and only collectible, for now at least, is my Haunted Mansion Stretching Portrait Pokitpal by R. Olszewski. It's my beginning of a beautiful relationship.
