Does the light show through the shoe -- or shine from the top ? I could see something like that selling in a fancy boutique !

I have a red cowgirl boot lamp with lace shade. The twin is a birdhouse. I have a metal boot lamp and a red cowgirl hat to put on as a shade.

but birds can not have my birdhouse....ha ha. I do have a smaller boys boot birdhouse out in the GS garden.

You are right, those nightlights would sell at a boutique. Great idea.

I'm not trying to be a downer here...but just wondering...could the light bulb get too hot and cause trouble. My cousin collects old shoes...and I'm thinking I'd like to make her one for her birthday in July. But I'd hate to be the one giving her something that might cause a fire.

Also I think drilling a hole in the bottom of the shoe for the cord would be a good idea.
