National Dollhouse Miniature Month - Day 4 - Inspiration

Isn't he cute.   Ready for the big game to start.  

 The guests haven't showed up yet, but he doesn't care and neither does the Jack Russell.
 The big screen TV shows a scene from a Chief's Game - our favorite team.   The sale boat is actually a Christmas Decoration purchased in Maine on a vacation years ago. 

 Isn't this a great fish.   My mother purchased it for me years and years and years ago.   Finally found it's home in this box. 

The second fish was a magnet.  Pried the magnet off and put on a little board, presto - another mounted fish. 

My inspiration for this box was all about a cake decoration.    Several years ago I was spending a few days at my sister's home in Blue Spring, Mo.    She had a box of things ready to take to a daughter-in-law's garage sale.   Right there on top was this cute little guy.   Perfect 1 inch scale.    I took him right upstairs and told her I was taking him.   I immediately saw GAME DAY.  She was delighted with the results.
