"What matters most are the simple pleasures so abundant that we can all enjoy them."

A couple of years ago I showed you my humble journal collection. I've added several more since then, along with other artsy stuff like stamps, cute post-it notes, washi tapes, and so forth. I know it's kinda an expensive hobby but what can I do? I just can't stop. Me going to craft stores is like letting a kid loose inside a candy shop. Especially with the ease and convenience provided by online shops? Oh man, no wonder I can't save enough money. But enough talk about boring stuff, let's just go look at pretty little things, shall we?

One thing I've taken a great liking to lately is The Little Prince. I've loved the book ever since I read it when I was in high school, but it is only now that I showed more interest in it. (And yeah, I am such a sucker geek who loves collecting stuff connected to my pop culture favorites.) It all started with my Le Petit Prince Moleskine Planner...


Since then, I've been on the look-out for The Little Prince merchandise. And I was lucky because I found quite a lot! Here are some of my favorite recent acquisitions:

Mother of pearl necklace from Thingamabobs
The Little Prince notecards.
I ordered several sets of this because I am planning to give some to my friends!
The Little Prince stickers
This is only one of four sheets. I love it.
And of course I used some of the stickers to decorate my planner :)
"The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.", and whenever I look at them, they just make me happy and remind me of the wonderful lessons the book taught me. Antoine de Saint-Exupery said we must never forget we were all children once, and I must say that these pretty little things bring out the little girl in me; always curious and amazed.

I saw accessories inspired by the book from local online shops, and I hope I can get my paws on them before someone else does! I also check this website almost every day for official merchandise and I really, really, really want to own at least a piece but considering the shipping and possible customs fee they're all very expensive *sad face*.

I should show you my Aliens from Pizza Planet collection next, and maybe after that, my stamps?

What about you, what do you collect? Please tell me I'm not alone in this LOL.

You've got some really neat things Krissy!  Little treasures make life more fun and can brighten up your day.  When I was growing up I had a small wooden box that held a few special items for me.  I kept it tucked away for safe-keeping.

We don't want to risk losing our treasures.
