Santa's Workshop

I have collected a number of dollhouse miniature toys over the years.  I kept wondering how to display them to advantage so it was either a toyshop or Santa's workshop! 
I had Todd Kruger make me some elves after I had purchased Santa and Mrs. Claus a few years ago.  I felt that they added a touch of fantasy to my setting.  I do not tend to put dolls in my settings - miniaturists either feel strongly about putting them in a scene or not adding them at all.
I decided that separate work tables would help to fill the centre of the room.  The workbench was made by Terry McAllister from the UK and all the drawers are filled with wonderful miniature tools. The toys are by various artisans and if there is anything that you would like identified just leave a comment and I will respond.
With Christmas looming quickly, I thought that you might enjoy seeing my holiday miniature roombox!
