Three years ago we were in Basel ~ Switzerland around the time the Christmas markets opened. What an amazing magical time we had. One of the very first images that comes to mind, is the window display at the "Puppenhausmuseum"
This is a multi story building of the most beautiful and in detail museum of antique miniature and doll houses I have ever seen. Since one is not allowed to photograph inside the museum, I can only share these outside window "stills" with you. There were various "mechanical" movement complete with music in the background displays as well.
yes, we were influenced by all the feathery wings and brought back our own little supply in various sizes for all DD's bears and dolls..
