Playful, this little cast pewter car toy replica reminds me of a movie I saw a long time ago, it's in french but if you haven't seen it it's worth reading the subtitles - the movie is "Amelie," maybe it's one of your favorites too.

I want to combine this car charm, with its old-fashioned look, with these two round glass oval links to make a design. For some reason these designs make me think of steering wheels, or the fancy enameled insignia on the hood of old roadster cars.

I think I'd put one circle glass link on either side of the car, add some dark blue stones or glass beads for the chain.

Can you tell I'm having fun with these?

Those are so cool! I love the little car! And Amelie is one of my very favorite movies of all time.

"Amelie" is a fun movie - I need to watch it again. Keep an eye out for toys in boxes, - Beth, you spotted the reference, you clever one!

Pattie, that gives me a Monopoly idea for charms ... with a game theme, fun! I've made some replica dice charms before, hmmm, this needs more thought.
