There are loads of interesting objects and places to be found throughout the episodes. We comment and post them on each episodes forum, but I thought it would also be cool to have them in one place. Thus this post. I’ll be editing this post after every new episode (if there’s anything to add).
If you find any more or I forgot anything, please post it. If possible, please also send me a screenshot I can put here (pm or to e-mail, both through the forum).
Oh, and I’ve never seen Lost, so if there’s an object from it, please tell me so, because I won’t recognize it. 😉
I’ll be updating the fotos in due course, not in the mood to search and upload right now. xD

[The box which contained the heart of Regina’s prized steed and her father’s (FTL) is now on top of her desk in the mayor’s office. It’s not the same boxes as from Snow White, but since it has the same purpose I put it up here.]

Disney Logo not exactly an object, but a sweet reference
View from the mountain Dreamy & Nova watch the fireflies

Emmas candle on her birthday muffin is a reference to the blue wishing star in Pinocchio (so told by either Kitsis or Horowitz, don’t remember)
7 beer mugs

in FTL he gives some beard to iniciate the evil curse, in SB he’s in Regina’s garden petrified.
is the inspiration for the playground built by her for Henry and the children of SB.
is the 9th bottle on Rumpel’s shelve. An allusion to the song “Love Potion #9”?

Regina’s in her castle in FTL and under Henry Sr.’s grave in FTL, as well as the Queen of Hearts’ in Wonderland.

What about the cookies from True North. MM made the kids cookies and the same cookies were also decorations inside the blind witch’s house.March 9, 2012 at 3:02 am #138444
also Geppeto’s parents as puppetsMarch 9, 2012 at 3:04 am #138447
What about glass from SW’s coffinMarch 9, 2012 at 4:22 pm #138482
Thanks! I knew I had forgotten something (the puppets).March 9, 2012 at 8:08 pm #138497
What about Emma’s Blanket? Where would that go?
And I just thought of the skeleton keys 😉 Those transcend both worlds along with Regina’s apple tree.
Also the view to watch the fireflies Dreamy and Nova had is a Disney logo reference:)
Rumpel’s spinning wheel
I think that’s it for now.March 11, 2012 at 9:39 am #138584
added the blue star candle from Emma’s muffinMarch 11, 2012 at 9:49 pm #138615
Archie’s umbrella and PongoMarch 11, 2012 at 10:29 pm #138616
Would Emma’s last name and the Swans on Henry’s light be considered LOST references? What about LOST number references? Henry gets off train at gate 4 in pilot; Clock stuck on 8:15, Regina’s house number 108, eye close ups in 8:15 (Emma) and the Heart is a Lonely Hunter (Graham). Someone figured out there were 108 boxes in the EQ’s heart chamber (9×12), Zoso dagger similar to the dagger used in LOST used to try to kill mother, Jacob and man in black; 23 on strangers motorcycle plate; EQ turns into black smoke; Hansel and Gretel wake up on the ground looking up like happened in several LOST episodes; Emma crashed into a sign with the numbers 4 and 23; In Dreamy sister Astrid says they sold only 42 candles.
