National Dollhouse Miniature Month - Day 16 - A toy shop card was inspiration

I never know when inspiration will strike.   Sometimes it strikes like a hammer and other times it is much more inconspicuous when it shows up.       This card was one I received a long time ago and thought it was really cute.    I thought, wow - this could be the front of a toy shop.  I said I'd be doing Christmas themed items - I include toy shops with that theme.  

The card had to have the windows cut out and then I had the front for my toy shop.  

I added a battery operated light in the top.   It has dolls, bears, dollhouses, and a host of miscellaneous toys.

The little theatre on the top shelf was a printie that has held up immensely well.   When I started doing 1/12 scale (which this is) I used to put a Hershey bar in each scene.   There it is in the wagon.   

The battery operated light is in the little jewelry box that is attached to the top where you just pull off the lid to turn on the light.   I really like lighted projects, but don't always do it.   

I hope inspiration comes to you for your favorite themes.
