Letters to Santa...and led candles!

I had seen these led battery little lights on various sites...but always thought they might be too big for dollhouse purposes. Well i talked about it with a friend from a german dollhouse group, she suggested they would most probably do, she knows of people who do train modells and use them...so i finally got some ( to my surprise
very near in our town) ! They are actually used quite a lot here now in cafeterias, bars etc for decoration instead of real candels. The train-modelists breake away all plastics around and just keep the little led lamp....but one has to be quite an expert for that, in order not to break the whole thing!
Anyway...i wanted them to light up my santa box...as they are cheap comparing to dollhouse products and lights. These little led candels are 2.50 to 2.80 euro a pair!!  And i haven't yet found any small lights in 1:24. With my scenes i don't really measure what i am making and most of the times i end up with a size smaller than 1:12.
I made two extra little shelves for the santa box now, as the candles came into it after finishing :). I painted them with nail colour and glued some decoration on to them. They have a little switch for on/off. So , there is no use in putting them somewhere where one can't reach them. In a future box i will plan on where to put them from the
beginning..and make the proper place for them! One could also make holes in the walls /ceiling..and just push through the little light. The"flame" (plastic cover)  comes off, too,if one wants...and then there is only a
tiny little lamp! Thus the switch would be on the outside and the lamp could stay in the place! Lots of planning ahead!!! :)
I will try to take a picture..just with the candle-light, it is quite sufficient for dollhouse purposes! (but not easy to photograph! )  ........................
But..more important now...here is Santa's mail box! 
Caramel had many ideas on what to write to Santa! How fortunate he is to have friends to help him post the letter! The fun part is, you can put in a real-lifesized letter! 
Who knows how and when...but ...Santa will surely get it! :) There is a little bell to let him know that there's a new letter! 
The box is 23 cm high, 15 cm wide and 7 cm deep. It is for sale, little Santa comes in for free...it is a little plastic doll dressed up with a rather old and worn coat. But he is cute anyway! :) Rudolf is there ,too...he is a plastic toy., too. All other things are made by me.
